Jen & Donnie | a Boston engagement session

Amanda & Robby | a backyard engagement

Growing up in my little hometown of Nokesville, Virginia was so much more of a blessing than I ever knew or realized. Situated just on the edge of Northern Virginia, quite literally straddling the line of Washington D.C. Suburbia and Rural Virginia Farmland, I knew the best of both worlds.

Casey & Evan | Georgetown Engagement

I’m just gonna come out and say it: Evan and Casey’s relationship is the embodiment of most of my very favorite things. 1) Wild adventurousness. 2) Adoring sass. 3) A deep and abiding love of doughnuts.
