It was such a treat to meet up with Xu, Max, Jordan and Kayla for the third year in a row for their family photos! The kids grew up so much and they excitedly ran around on the field and happily threw rocks into the creek. This family has such a great dynamic and it was easy to see how much the parents adore their children, and vice versa! Here are a few of my favorite images from their 2016 family session!
Maya and Jeff met at Katsucon, an anime convention held at Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, so it was fitting that their engagement session started at the very hotel where they met. They share a love for anime, dressing up in costumes for various events, and most importantly, they love doing things together. It was so much fun photographing Maya and Jeff, who was full of laughter and playfulness. I’m really looking forward to capturing their wedding in October, which will require all of their guests to dress up in costumes!
I became friends with Gina during high school days so I was thrilled when she got in touch to have me photograph her upcoming wedding to James! I met with this sweet couple early morning at the Tidal Basin for a sunrise engagement session. The morning light created a beautiful glow on them as they cuddled and attempted to keep each other warm on this chilly day. Gina and James were fun and joyful be around as they strolled around the basin as if they were on a date. I’m looking forward to capturing their wedding this summer!

Julie and Sam had a romantic, rainy day wedding at Piedmont Club in Haymarket, Virginia. Despite the chilly day with steady rain, this sweet couple was full of spirit and braved the elements with outdoor portraits! After getting ready and taking portraits at the golf course, Julie and Sam were married at KCPC with hundreds of people witnessing their ceremony. A more intimate reception followed, where the newlyweds celebrated with their closest friends and family with touching speeches, slideshows, and warm greetings. I am grateful for the chance to work with such a great couple as I welcome the 2016 wedding/portrait season! Congratulations!
