Carrie & Tim Engaged | Washington DC Engagement Photography

It had been so long since I was on the metro in Washington DC and it brought back a lot of memories! This time I was headed to meet Carrie, Tim, and their 2 dogs, Robert and Barney. We stopped at a spot along the Potomac and found some beautiful trees full of pink flowers. We also walked over to get some of the city scenery including the monument and some shots in the Jefferson Memorial. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day and those were some happy pups as a result to be outside! Carrie and Tim met while both attending Johns Hopkins. Carrie wrote Tim a separate email from their study group and he got the hint and asked her out! It worked out beautifully and now a wedding is planning for next year on the eastern shore of Maryland!

Southern Weddings Blog Feature | Virginia Wedding Photography

I was thrilled to get a call from Kristin Winchester, the Director of Advertising for Southern Weddings Magazine! She came up with a really great idea of a new Friday feature on the blog focusing on newlyweds and what happens after the big wedding day. The first story for “Southern Newlyweds” will feature Kristin herself and her sweet husband, Kyle. Together they made a delicious pecan pie, a recipe passed down from Kristin’s grandmother, and some colorful chicken enchiladas. Here is a peak at my favorites and here is the link to the Southern Weddings blog post!

Workshop Photography | King George Inn Roanoke Virginia Photography

I had the pleasure of attending my first photography workshop with a great group of photographers in SW Virginia. We met at the King George Inn Bed & Breakfast in Roanoke and were able to work with 2 gorgeous models and the sweetest engagement couple! We started in the attic playing with flash and some dramatic window lighting. Next we worked in a few spaces around the house and then outside for such a beautiful day!
