I met Katie at The Alexandrian Autograph Collection Hotel as Sungold Flower Co. delivered their beautiful assortment of foraged spring flower bouquets and crowns. The ladies put on velvet, silk, and chiffon dresses and then we took a walk down the cobblestone streets of Old Town. We took photos on the waterfront and then headed to Virtue Feed & Grain for a quick and candid ceremony and lunch!

Wedding at Diyanet Center of America and Big Bear Cafe

Noor and Dan exchanged their vows on a beautiful spring day at the Diyanet Center of America. It’s a gorgeous mosque and cultural center based on Turkish design. The intricate tile design of the interior was impressive! Noor’s black beaded dress was in keeping with her family’s Palestinian heritage. After a short ceremony, we met extended family and a few friends at Big Bear Cafe in Washington DC for a delicious dinner at one long table.

Early Autumn Family Session with Little Boys

Brothers Avik and Som had a blast running around this wildflower filled meadow playing superheroes and finding new insects and flowers to explore. Their mom and dad were all about embracing their kids’ wild and free nature and because of that, we captured some honest and intimate moments whenever the boys naturally went in for cuddles (instead of forcing poses.) I’m such an advocate for child-led sessions!

Elegant Wedding at Columbia Country Club in Chevy Chase

There is SO much character at this venue- wallpaper, crystal chandeliers, bookcases, textiles, velvet chairs, vintage rugs, and more! It was hard to pick where to photograph the details, let alone the people!! I came ready for rain, but we lucked out with amazing (albeit Maryland summer hot) weather and got to explore the gardens and rolling golf courses outside.

Katie and Zach celebrated their wedding on a cozy, rainy afternoon at the Harvest House at Lost Creek Winery. Between downpours, we took advantage of dry skies for portraits.

Timeless Ceremony at Chase Court in Mount Vernon

A few weeks before Sherie and Duvall’s wedding I got a phone call from Chase Court, a wedding venue in Mount Vernon, asking if I was free to photograph a one-hour ceremony. David, the venue owner, was offering a new package for couples on a budget. The deal is this- invite your closest family and friends to a one hour, midday ceremony in their beautiful courtyard and get flowers, a photographer, and a musician to serenade you down the aisle for one flat rate. Pretty darn good if you ask me! I had the afternoon free, leapt at the opportunity, and have zero regrets. Sherie and Duvall were the absolute sweetest!

Eco Friendly Wedding at The Elm in Hampden

Allison and Dan's Earth Day wedding had two priorities- have FUN with family and friends who traveled from all over the country, and keep things as eco friendly as possible. It was hosted at one of Baltimore's hidden gem's, The Elm in Hampden. It's owned and operated by a couple who live there, so it has charm and nostalgia and small personal touches scattered about that make it feel incredibly cozy. There are vintage posters on the wall, rustic furniture made of wicker and wood, and mismatched floral textiles.

At Home Newborn Session in Ellicott City

This newborn session was everything a newborn sesh should be- lots of snuggling, snoozing, and a hearty dose of love. At only three weeks old, tiny Rollie slept almost the entire time and finally woke up after an hour to gaze at us with wise eyes. I always try to focus on the kinds of pictures I’d want of my own baby- a few details of tiny fingers, newborn wrinkles, and peachfuzz, but mostly images that make me remember what it felt like to hold him when he was so small. I really hope these photos bring back those feelings for Rebecca and Sean as their first baby grows into a little boy.
