Stunning Sunday!

What a beautiful day today is shaping up to be! We are about to head out to the 28th Annual Vintage Virginia Wine Festival! However, I could not leave the house without a sneak peak of Puja & Saj's wedding!

She was the most stunning Bride!

And Saj, looking mighty fine himself, was totally the life of the party!

Have an amazing Sunday everyone!

Miriam & Mattias - The Wedding!

On May 16th I was so lucky to be photographing Mattias & Miriam's wedding in The Chapel of Saint Ignatius Loyola at Holy Trinity in DC.

The Chapel was so bright and gorgeous with its high ceilings yet it was very intimate.

Mattias, ready to get married!

Miriam making a stunning entrance with her dad!

Amazing bouquet isn't it?

Pretty Pretty Flower Girl!

And... they're married!

Time for some portraits...

A great ring shot!

After that we made our way over to Old Town Alexandria for the reception at The Lyceum.

Here is a collage of the fabulous details from the day:

A quick picture outside before the party started:

First Dance!

I love this sweet shot of Miriam and her father dancing. Her dad just loved the camera! He has this look and personality that reminds me of Old Hollywood.

Tell me this isn't an awesome cake sequence!

Their place cards were really adorable luggage tags with the guests name on them and their table assignment. Here were the bride & grooms tags. ADORABLE!

What a fantastic wedding! Thanks Miriam & Mattias for letting me be a party of your day.

Sean & Danielle for Kristen Gardner Photography!

On April 25th I was able to join Kristen Gardner at the Regency at Dominion Valley for Danielle & Sean's wedding. It was so nice to see the Regency in the Spring. The last time I was there was in January (shooting with Kristen) and it was COLD!

The 25th was warm and sunny, a beautiful day for a wedding!

Pretty, pretty bridesmaids!

I always love watching brides get into their dresses.

Check out that PINK!

Who doesn't love a good dad & daughter shot?

I love how he was looking at her when nobody was watching.

Here is the grooms mom, isn't she just so adorable?

I had an awesome vantage point for the ceremony!

One of the first few moments as husband & wife.

While Kristen was off shooting formals, I got to shoot some candid moments at the cocktail hour.

Super cool centerpieces on the tables at the reception:

The bride & groom enter!

First dance:

And finally, an awesome shot of the grooms mom & the best man breaking it down!

Love you moms!

Happy Mothers Day!

A picture of my beautiful mother from her recent vist and our afternoon at the Shenandoah National Park.

Here is my grandmother (moms mother), Anne, as a beautiful bride:

Here is my grandmother, Marge, with me as a baby. She passed away in 2002 and I still miss her every day.

Happy Mothers Day!

What a better time to show off some maternity pictures that Mother's Day weekend!

On that crazy hot Sunday after I shot Urmila & Scott's e-session I took a break for a few hours and then headed over to my friend Suzanne's new house to shoot her maternity pictures.

Suzanne is an amazing makeup artist who I met at a bridal fair (our booths were right across from each other, and our guys totally hit it off during the down time) last September. We really hit it off and I am so thrilled that they just moved close to us and are expecting their second little boy. I actually think she may have had him this week since she hasn't responded to my email! If so... CONGRATS!!!!

Check out how adorable this little family is!

Jacob & Suzanne are so adorable together!

Their adorable son Kai giving his baby brother a kiss!

Time for some COLOR! Can you belive this is all on their property in Manassas? What a great view!

We did some shots of her in front of the new house to send to her family and I couldn't believe when she climbed on the railing!

And finally a nice headshot of the beautiful momma!

Seriously if you need your makeup done... call this woman! She is amazing! Last weekend I had my bridal makeup trial and I was FLAWLESS. It looked just as good at midnight as when she did it at noon!
