While I absolutely love what I do, sometimes I enjoy photographing for myself.  What I mean by this is that I enjoy photographing beautiful things just to photograph them. Wedding days are lovely, filled with emotions, gorgeous details, and love….but I need time to focus (literally) on learning new skills and trying new techniques with […]

Brittany and Ryan met many moons ago when they were just littles. Over the years, the grew close together and decided on forever. When this couple booked me, we hoped things would be different as they originally had 200 guests invited. They made the decision to pair down and go forward with their original wedding date.

Since Alexandria is a city so near and dear to these two – and they wanted that historic vibe – we met up near the Waterfront and made our way around a couple of blocks and wrapped up near the arena. Their Old Town Alexandria engagement session turned out to be everything Cat wanted: greenery with cobblestone.

A couple of things about this couple: (1) Ask Jess about ladybugs (2) Ask Andrew how he says mozzarella. This adorable duo met on Coffee Meets Bagel and I am already counting down the days to their White Hall Estate wedding next May! Congratulations, Jessica and Andrew! Next year is gonna be amazing.
