Jordan & Andrew { A Riverside on the Potomac Wedding, Leesburg, VA}

   Jordan and Andrew had the most stunning Fall Wedding October 11, 2021 at Riverside on the Potomac in Leesburg, VA.  When I arrived I  took in how beautiful this venue was. The leaves were starting to change, and I loved the rustic vibe. The Flower field was the perfect backdrop, just wait until you see their portraits, so beautiful! Jordan and Andrew, it’s clear how perfect you two are for each other! I loved capturing your day and all the beautiful moments. You both were amazing having to postpone a whole year for your wedding day, but I would say it was so worth it~. Wishing you both a beautiful life together!

                 Jordan and all her girls! They were such a  fun group! Love the matching pink pj’s!

 Jordan, you made an absolutely stunning bride! Breathtaking! Andrew is a lucky man.


 I always love a first look with Dad! This one was so heartwarming and emotional.

A fun group of Buffalo Bill Fans! Loved this wedding party.. they really know  how to throw a party to remember~!

Tara & Carlos, Annapolis Waterfront Hotel Wedding, May 29, 2021

Tara and Carlos were married May, 29, 2021 finally.. after two rescheduled wedding dates… thanks Covid! These two were always so upbeat and positive in spite of the delays and everyone was so excited for them when the day was finally here. These two also became close friends of mine during the pandemic.. the story starts with us dropping off toilet paper and Carlos teaching Andy how to make mojitos haha… I just love them! They are so perfect together as they are both fit, active runners. They love running marathons together, often you will find them working out or traveling together. You rarely see them apart. I love their love story as they met on Bumble.. Tara calls it Bumble Bee! Lol! They had their first date at Coopers Hawk and hit it off so well they closed the place down. You could say the rest was history after that and they quickly fell in love and bought a place together. Two years of blending a family and many adventures along the way.

Their wedding day had so many special moments from the choreographed dance they had practiced for almost a year, to the tearful parents dances.. you could tell just how many people love them! It was such a special time to celebrate mask free as Covid restrictions had finally lifted just in time for them.. a bright spot for sure.

Here are some of my favorite images from their day… Oh and did I mention it downpoured on their wedding day so we went back to Annapolis for beautiful portraits.. I would say it was worth it! 🙂 We ended the day with the most amazing dinner on the waterfront watching the sunset.. looking forward to many more adventures ahead with you two! I wish you a lifetime of happiness!


Thank you to the vendors who made it possible!

The Butrago Family, Burnside Farms Family Session

Wow, It’s been awhile since I’ve been away from the blog.  Coronavirus happened, and sessions halted for awhile.. it was so nice to get back to photography at the end of Summer after taking a little break. This was one hot, but fun session in July at Burnside Farms. Aren’t they the cutest family? Ana owns a Hair/ makeup wedding studio in Tyson’s VA and I love her work and was thrilled when she asked me to capture her family. She has the sweetest boys!

Enjoy some of my favorites! I also hope to be back to updating here more so stay tuned. 🙂

Kate & Grayson { An Elegant, Middleburg, VA Wedding }

Kate  and Grayson were married October 12, 2019 at the beautiful Trinity Episcopal Church in Upperville, VA.

The girls began the day getting ready at Creighton Farms clubhouse, they all looked amazing when I arrived in their pink tennis outfits,( umm hello legs for days!), while the boys got ready at Landsdowne Resort. Kate was calm and collected as the makeup artist finished up some last minute hair and makeup touches. After capturing some detail shots, Kate got into her beautiful dress.  She looked stunning! I loved her backless gown. What a classic bride! We took advantage of the gorgeous views for bridal party pictures before heading over to the church.

I love the quaint town of Upperville and so when I pulled up to Trinity Episcopal, It may have been one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen. They had a beautiful ceremony, followed by a reception at the Middleburg Barn at Fox Chase Farms. I loved this venue with the rolling hills, and beautiful pond. The barn made for a stunning backdrop for the guests to enjoy cocktail hour. One of the horses even made an appearance for portraits with Kate and Grayson! The sun was setting just as we finished up portraits and the golden light was so pretty!

What a fun reception it was, from the first dances, to the speeches. The Blue Label Band kept the dance floor hopping all night long. What an amazing band! I highly recommend them. I don’t think guests stopped dancing all night long. They ended the night with a sparkler send off. It was a perfect day.

Congratulations Kate & Grayson! I loved getting to know you both at your Stone Tower engagement session and I hope you have a wonderful honeymoon and a fabulous life together. Thank you for allowing me to capture your day. A big thank you also to Terry Kaye Events and all the vendors who made the wedding run so seamlessly.
