Shayla is a 2019 senior and so ready to […]

I just can’t get enough of this gorgeous, spring inspired styled shoot at Walker’s Overlook!  With a surprise snowfall the night before, it quickly turned into a “Dreaming of Spring” shoot, but it was still perfection. Every aspect of the shoot was thoughtfully put into place by the lovely Mimi Perez of A Bride’s BFF.  […]

The Love Story What better day to marry your best friend than on Valentine’s Day?!  When I first heard from Molly, I was so excited to hear of her and Brian’s plans to elope in Old Town Alexandria on Valentine’s Day.  I don’t think it gets much sweeter than that. It was as if Molly […]

There is nothing like hearing a good love story.  It is truly one of my favorite parts of getting to know other couples – hearing the whole story – from start to finish, of how they met, fell in love, got engaged, and said “I Do”.  I will be the first to admit that I […]
