Fall weddings are so gorgeous

Hayley and Nick were married on a gorgeous but moody Fall day. The skies threatened but held out just in time for the celebration which was thankfully under a tent. I just love Fall weddings for so many reasons and this one was so beautiful and romantic. All the heart eyes!

Late September wedding - Wollam flower farm

In late September I had the pleasure of photographing a wedding and second shooting for Ronald Flores at Wollam Flower farm Such a gorgeous day for this fun couple who are both musician showed their love for family , friends and music by playing themselves back down the isle . Guest formed a large circle around the couple who serenaded each other and all their loved ones! Amazing! The celebration after this did not disappoint where fantastic sounds filled the air  on this balmy Fall night as a live New Orleans style band kept of the funk and laughter going while guest. danced and were treated to handmade donuts and Dark hot chocolate. YUM! Loved this fun and colorful wedding so much!

A cold Winter evening sunset casting warm golden light - Lucketts Virginia

I love this series from our shoot on Saturday , especially loving that last bit of light coming from a diffused sun. One of this things I love about Winter is the bare trees and how they become art in themselves, the gold light that can come from even the coldest sunset making it feel warm and glowy. Chasing light.love.

Julia and Spencer - Lucketts VA engagemnet session

When I say it was cold last Saturday when I met up with Julia and Spencer I mean freezing but these two did not need any encouragement to snuggle, not from me and not from artic temps. We met up at Creeks Edge winery in Lucketts VA, both had just flown in from California and were heading back very soon to they're schools to finish the year, Spencer will be starting Medical school in the Fall and Julia Veterinary school  same thing but with animals, I love animals!! ;) so it was now or never for their engagement shoot!  Thank you for braving the cold with me, I had fun with you both and I wish you a lifetime of love, laughter and warmth together.

Amazing Iceland

Traveling to Iceland was a dream and it felt like a dream the whole time I was there and not because of the extreme lack of sleep either. The landscape, the ponies and the people

are just amazingly beautiful and warm.  I only spent 5 days there, not nearly enough time when your traveling alone and want to see so much and also meet up and photograph a model. I never do things the easy way and I think at this point that may never change although next time and there will be a next time I will spend more time, plan MUCH better and maybe go with a friend (s). 

 Hera is the one model I did manage to meet and photograph in my short time there. We met late afternoon and drove to Reynisfjara beach to grab what we could of the afternoon light. Iceland can be moody weather wise, ( all the more reason to love it ), so  it was bright sun to deep clouds while we were shooting. The beach was super windy and of course had it’s share of other people but oh my gosh it was SO worth it! To tell you this girl is amazingly professional and easy to work with would be an understatement. Most of the time we were dodging sneaker waves, tourist and most of all the killer wind. I had to yell over the wind most of the time, not easy for either of us but we did it! I love some of the shots we got and cannot wait to go back to this magic place, explore more of it and hopefully work with Hera again!

I love you Iceland, thank you and I’ll be back soon!!

Springfield Manor - Frederick Maryland

On a perfect Fall day in mid November this couple said their 'I dos" and celebrated their love with family and friends at the Springfield Manor lavender farm and Distillery and winery in Frederick Maryland. What a perfect way to wrap on a fun season filled with great couples taking the next step in their lives together. What an honor and a privilege it is for me to be able to witness and capture these brides and Grooms along with their families and friends on one of the most important days in their lives. It is an amazing journey and I am so grateful that i get to do what I do, I never take it for granted and I am externally grateful. Love and Light to all!

Sweet little mountain wedding

I love having the occasion to second shoot for other professionals. Earlier this Summer I had so much fun photographing this wedding for this lovely couple. It was beyond hot that day but this wedding and this couple were very laid back and here to celebrate their love and the obvious love for them as it was evident by the many family and friends from out of town. I wish them both the very best in this life!
