Mary and Ken had a lovely wedding at 2941 Restaurant in Falls Church, Virginia. The grounds of the restaurant provided a beautiful backdrop for this sweet couple’s first look, ceremony, and portraits with nice greenery and refreshing waterfalls. Mary and Ken are couple of the most genuine and sweet people I have met and this sentiment was reflected in many of the warm speeches given by their family and friends during the reception. The newlyweds were very thoughtful to include memorable photos of all of their guests as part of their slideshow, as they believed that this day was not just about them but those closest to them as well. Congratulations to this amazing couple!
Karin and Sly are one of the sweetest couples I’ve had the pleasure to work with. Most couples care about how their wedding photos turn out but it was my first time documenting a wedding where the couple expressed numerous times how much they are looking forward to seeing their wedding photos while the event was still going on! It was quite endearing and made me chuckle. Karin and Sly celebrated their marriage with an intimate group of guests, where they socialized and excitedly caught up with friends and family. There was so much love throughout the day and I was happy to document the tears of joy, laughter, and warmth. Congratulations to this lovely couple!

I met with Rachel and Rafael early morning at Black Hill Park where they enjoy taking walks with their dog, Apollo. In addition to having engagement photos taken together as a couple, it was important for them to include their beloved, furry pet into some of the shots so this location was perfect. The park was illuminated with warm, morning light and created a lovely glow upon this sweet family. Rachel and Rafael are high school sweethearts and I admired the fun and laughter they shared during the session! I look forward to capturing their wedding in the fall!
Pey and Leon had their wedding at the beautiful Running Hare Vineyard, which is one of the prettiest vineyards in the area! Besides being stunning (Pey reminds me of a Chinese movie star), the bride has a beautiful heart and it’s easy to see why Leon adores her so much, who’s not so bad, himself! The wedding was an intimate affair and it was touching to see the bride and groom mingle and laugh with all of their guests throughout the day. The newlyweds made a lovely speech during the reception expressing their thanks to those who came and for sharing this special day with them. Pey and Leon were a dream to work with, as they are both sweet, respectful, and easygoing. Congratulations to this wonderful couple!

Erin and Kevin’s wedding at the Corpus Christi and Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore was truly a memorable event for everyone involved. From the first day that I met Erin and Kevin, I admired the love and chemistry that they shared, despite having dated for many years! They reminded me of a young couple in a new relationship, full of freshness and excitement. I saw it again during their engagement session and of course, on their wedding day! Seeing their joy reflected in the photos remind me of why I love my job so much; I just can’t wait to share the photos with them soon and show them how beautiful they are when they look at one another! Without further ado, here are some of my favorite moments from Erin and Kevin’s wedding. They are beautiful both inside and out and it was truly a joy working with this sweet couple!
