Tori & Evan
phoenixville, pa engagement

Tori and Evan were the last couple in front of my lens in 2015, and I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. At one point during our shoot, I asked Evan to look at Tori and give her his best flirty face, as if he’d just seen her across the room and was trying […]

Kim & Phil
winery at bull run engagement

These days, I’m honestly quite fortunate to have most every session I shoot feel like a reunion with old friends. Somehow I’ve been lucky enough to meet and work with clients who are just as weird and wild and in love with terrible jokes as I am, and it makes capturing their love on camera an […]

Liz & Jeff
meadowlark botanical gardens wedding

It was a cold one. In fact, arguably the first Saturday of the year with a decent chill in the air. But looking back at these images, and remembering the love that filled the Atrium at Meadowlark, all I can seem to remember is the warm joy that followed Liz and Jeff everywhere they went. I […]

Laura & Cole
st. simons island wedding

I’m still not sure that this entire day wasn’t completely a dream. First, there’s the location: a wedding on Saint Simon’s Island, Georgia. It’s the place where Laura’s mother grew up and where Laura spent her summers as a child and now where Laura’s parents call home. I’m not sure if it’s possible to stand […]

Lindsay & Dave
river farm wedding

“You had me at, ‘Lindsay, get in here!’” One of my favorite things about weddings it that while, yes, they are first and foremost the melding together of two separate lives, they are also the merging of two separate families. Two sets of history, two sets of traditions, two separate units coming together with the […]

Sophia & Brandon
annapolis maritime museum wedding

“I’ll always do the work.” There wasn’t a dry eye left in the entire room, including my own. Sophia and Brandon are two musical souls who are the definition of “made for each other.” It took Sophia a little while to realize that Brandon was more than just her best “music friend”; they would talk […]

Tori & Will
bayside camping engagement

Pay attention, boys, this post contains some important information for you especially. We all know that we live in an era of texts and snapchats and—shudder—Facebook messages. There are a million ways to quickly have a “conversation” with another person, but sometimes at the end of the day, none of them really end up feeling […]

Wendy & Tomer
airlie wedding

“Your eyes are green when you’re happy,” he began. “I love that I know that about you.” And then there was not one dry eye left in the crowd at Wendy and Tomer’s ceremony. The sun sparkled through the tall trees in that magical way it does right at the precipice of fall and their […]

Lindsay & Nick
sequoia dc wedding

She sat there, relaxed—watching her beloved Michigan Wolverines football and sipping a mimosa—knowing that in just a few hours her father would be escorting her down the aisle to the man of her dreams. Everything was taken care of, the details done and the timeline as well mapped out as it could possibly be. Now […]

Kate & Morgan
silverbrook farm weddin

There are wedding days, and then there are wedding celebrations. For Kate and Morgan, it was never going to be anything less than a celebration. Over a decade in the making, for me to say that this day was held in anticipation for a lot of people would be just a slight, tiny understatement. Kate […]
