A Manassas Battlefield Engagement Shoot

  • Dan + Kathleen | Engaged

are some places in Virginia that I have yet to shoot in. There are a handful of vineyards, a few larger DC venues and several plantations on my “future shooting” list. The Manassas Battlefield was one of those locations!! I LOVE shooting at new locations. There’s something exciting and fresh about changing it up and creating new portraits from scratch! I absolutely loved meeting Dan and Kathleen on this beautiful property last week. Kathleen and I have emailed for what seems like forever and I was so excited to finally give her a hug and chat in person! She’s a sweetheart!

A Winter Engagement Shoot in the Capital

  • Andrew + Maddie | Engaged

reaching the point when I finally feel like I’ve been out of college for quite some time. A year or so ago, I felt like I had just graduated and I still had a ton of friends and connections at CNU. Now, most of my friends have graduated and to be honest, if I was to walk around campus, the only people I would really know would be my friends that WORK for the university!! I feel old. However… just a little side note, we do have some pretty awesome friends heading to CNU next year as freshman and we’re SO excited for them!

Love Michael, Katelyn & Bokeh
