justine & ken: a classic virginia wedding


Justine & Ken were married on what turned out to be a beautiful August day, which for those of you from the DMV know is rare!  Justine’s family is very near and dear to my heart as I grew up with them and they are some of the most genuinely kind people I know.  I had not met Ken prior to the wedding day and it brought me so much joy to see how incredibly happy these two make each other and how perfect Ken is for Justine.  He cares for her in a way that can only be explained through witnessing it and they constantly make each other laugh.  I cannot thank these two enough for allowing me to be part of their special day and wish them a lifetime of happiness together.

kelly & adam: a mexico mini session


For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you probably know I was in Mexico a couple weeks ago for one of my best friends’ wedding (their engagement photos are some of my absolute favorites).  The week in Mexico was absolutely gorgeous and such an amazing time!  I brought my film camera along with me in hopes of shooting at least some film and on our last night just before sunset, Kelly (Kristin’s younger sister), Adam (her boyfriend) and I decided to have a last minute impromptu mini-session.  Although I already knew these two were absolutely adorable together and a whole lot of fun, photographing them just made it even more apparent.  Even though it was a super short session, I am so thankful for this session pushing me to shoot more film. Kelly_Adam_Mexico_24Kelly_Adam_Mexico_23Kelly_Adam_Mexico-19Kelly_Adam_Mexico_25Kelly_Adam_Mexico_30Kelly_Adam_Mexico-3Kelly_Adam_Mexico_29Kelly_Adam_Mexico_28

A few weeks back, the Gedeon family welcomed me into their home to photograph their latest addition, a beautiful little girl named Olive (how adorable is that name?).  LeeAnn and Dave are some the nicest people you could ever meet and already such amazing parents to this little lady.  Hope you enjoy some of my favorites from their lifestyle session.  Gedeon_Family_Virginia-6Gedeon_Family_Virginia_53Gedeon_Family_Virginia-10Gedeon_Family_Virginia_52Gedeon_Family_Virginia-16Gedeon_Family_Virginia_56Gedeon_Family_Virginia-7Gedeon_Family_Virginia_51Gedeon_Family_Virginia-5Gedeon_Family_Virginia_57Gedeon_Family_Virginia_59Gedeon_Family_Virginia-14Gedeon_Family_Virginia_55Gedeon_Family_Virginia-13Gedeon_Family_Virginia_60Gedeon_Family_Virginia-63

claire & jobie


I met this sweet couple for the first time in Middleburg, Virginia for their engagement session (if you haven’t been, you should go check out how gorgeous it is).  It was a cloudy day with a forecast for rain but Jobie is a Green Beret and travels often, so they decided we could make the session happen anyway.  I am pretty sure nothing (even cloudy weather) could bring down the joy and happiness between these two.  Their love for one another is so apparent and I admire and appreciate what each of them do and give up every day to protect us and our country.  I absolutely loved getting to know both of them and cannot wait for their wedding in May!    Claire_Jobie_Middleburg_Engagement_55Claire_Jobie_Middleburg_Engagement-3Claire_Jobie_Middleburg_Engagement_56Claire_Jobie_Middleburg_Engagement-8Claire_Jobie_Middleburg_Engagement_57Claire_Jobie_Middleburg_Engagement-33Claire_Jobie_Middleburg_Engagement_58 copyClaire_Jobie_Middleburg_Engagement_69Claire_Jobie_Middleburg_Engagement-12Claire_Jobie_Middleburg_Engagement-13Claire_Jobie_Middleburg_Engagement-41Claire_Jobie_Middleburg_Engagement-15Claire_Jobie_Middleburg_Engagement_70Claire_Jobie_Middleburg_Engagement-49
