This University of Richmond Engagement Session was so sweet. In some of our wedding packages, Gibby Visuals, and I team up for engagement sessions as well. We planned to meet M + S at their alma mater–The University of Richmond. With them living out of town along with overcast skies & rain forecasted, we still […]
A Summer wedding at the Cavalier Hotel is perfect in every way! The beauty of the historic building, paired with ocean views and top notch service can’t be beat! The Historic Cavalier Hotel & Beach Club has become our home away from home and I’m perfectly fine with that! I love seeing this gem of […]
A Cavalier Hotel Summer Engagement Session never disappoints! Everything is green, flowers are blooming and the sun is usually shining. While it was a tad bit overcast this day, it sure did make the colors pop and gave us an epic sunset up in the bell tower (don’t miss that at the bottom of the […]

Even though the skIes were cloudy and the landscape was bare, Hailee and Justin’s Washington DC Temple winter wedding showcased bold pops of color! I loved the mix of teal and orange and gold that really brought the photos to life! I feel like it really complimented the white marble and gold spires of the temple!
This rainy Washington DC Temple wedding took place a few days before Christmas. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the holidays than together with your new husband! Even with rain in the forecast, we were still able to get some incredible portraits of these two sweethearts and their families! View more Washington […]
The Washington DC LDS Temple closed for renovations on March 3, 2018. Since it was the last time it would be open for two years, it was a very busy day on temple grounds. I had the opportunity to photograph TWO weddings that day! I have never seen the parking lot as full as it was that day! It was a blustery cold day, but Steven and Janette brought their A game!
Every season at the Washington DC Temple brings new surprises! Andy and Julie’s “Black Friday” wedding, in November, boasted rich colored leaves that made for some pretty amazing photos!
I first met Diana and Rylan at her BROTHER’S WEDDING in August of 2017. Diana’s mother had an unfortunate fall during the beginning of family pictures and had to be rushed off to the hospital to get stitches on the bridge of her nose. We were all traumatized in the moment but after everything it formed a friendship that I am grateful for.
Heidi and Patrick were sealed in the Washington DC Temple on the most beautiful sunny day! I couldn’t believe how blue the sky was and how the perfectly placed clouds made it look like it was painted! The temple grounds were filled with exotic flowers and it was the perfect backdrop for such a sweet couple.
When Abby’s mother first reached out to me about photographing her daughter’s wedding we immediately had so many connections. I have known Abby’s grandparents for years and two of my past brides (Shelby and Kim) referred them to me. I loved seeing all the friendly faces at the Washington DC Temple and at the Chesapeake Noah’s Event Venue!
August weddings at the Washington DC Temple are usually scorching hot! For that reason, I met up with Tona and Doug for a hour before they needed to be at the temple for their sealing. That way it was cooler and the light was better. We were blessed with mid 70’s and a beautiful overcast sky. When there are clouds at the temple, the spires really “pop” and it creates the dreamiest light!
My family and I recently went to a family reunion. We were on the road for 10 days, all over the state of Virginia. I already had a wedding scheduled at the Washington DC Temple so I made the most of it by scheduling 2 engagement sessions along the way. One was for Tona and Doug in Old Town Alexandria! This place is so adorable and we only got to explore a few streets before it started to rain 🙁 I had a blast getting to know them and getting all the details about their DC Temple wedding next month! Isn’t Tona’s hair to die for? So pretty!
I spent a BEAUTIFUL spring day at the Washington DC Temple with Emily, Cristian and all of their closest family and friends. The temple was very busy on this day with weddings. We quickly did all of their family portraits near the front temple doors to allow extra time for Emily and Crisitian’s couple’s portraits. They will traveled one hour to Frederick, MD for their same day wedding reception. They had an intimate and small DIY reception at the The Tea Room at Gambrill State Park.
Kim and Stuart’s Washington D.C. LDS Temple post was so full of gorgeousness that I knew their reception would need its own space on my blog. Temple Wedding Fact: There are 155+ operating temples for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints throughout the world. Some regions have many within a short distance, while other areas require members to travel long distances to attend. The state of Virginia does not have a temple, so when members of the church are looking to get married (or sealed as they call it) they travel to The Washington D.C Temple in Kensington, MD. It is 3.5-4 hour drive from Virginia Beach depending on traffic. Once it even took me 8 hours to get home because I-95 was a parking lot–yikes!
