A Wedding at The Mill at Fine Creek

  • Joseph + Perrin

As soon as I met them at their engagement session, I knew that they were one of those couples that came into our lives for a reason. We were over booked for this year but we still had this past Sunday available. Joe and Perrin’s wedding just happened to be right the middle of our craziest season… #9 of 19 weddings in a row. Any photographer would admit that in the middle of a long stretch, you need something to inspire you and renew your love for your work…. Joe and Perrin’s wedding did just that. Their love for one another and everyone’s deep love for them was so thick in the air, you could feel it. These two have such an incredible story and contagious joy. As Michael and I photographed their amazing wedding day, I kept turning to him and saying “Don’t you just love them?!”.

A Georgetown Engagement

  • Nik + Lindy | Engaged

met them on the busy streets of Georgetown last Friday and because we were early, we sat down and got to know one another a little bit! After just chatting with Nik and Lindy for a few minutes, I knew I loved them! We share a similar love story, mutual friends AND Nik is a Diet Mountain Dew fan. That’s always a plus! :) When I asked them about how long they have been dating, they laughed and just said “A LONG time”. They have us beat by a few years! Michael and I started dating when I was a freshman in high school and

Riverside on the Potomac Wedding

  • Cliff + Laurie

Rain happens. It’s just one of those things that you can’t avoid and when it happens to show up on your wedding day, you just have to roll with it! Cliff and Laurie are so laid back that the rain on their wedding couldn’t have stolen their joy and excitement! If anything, they had a more intimate, personal ceremony because of the drizzle! We moved their ceremony to the barn where their amazing reception was located upstairs. Guests stood around the Chuppah as Cliff and Laurie promised to be kind, loving and to always be each other’s best friend. They also vowed to keep their home a happy, colorful and joyful place that is always filled with great music…. I loved that part. As we braved the rain for a few portraits in the field, I thanked Laurie for being awesome!
