dc photographer

I'm glad you're here

I'm a wedding and portrait photographer based in the Washington, DC, Virginia, and Maryland metro area, and am available for travel worldwide.

I truly believe every couple has a unique story to tell as you take this next step in life. I want to get to know your story and give life to it for years to come. I take a documentary-style approach to capturing your portrait session or wedding day. This means I use a combination of candid moments and natural posing to capture photographs more authentic to your own story. I am passionate about bringing beauty to the subtle, otherwise ordinary moments that can be easily missed.

I will be there for you every step of your wedding-planning process, and can't wait to hear all about it!


The Past is Prologue

William Shakespeare, The Tempest

Outside of the National Archives in DC is a statue bearing Shakespeare’s quote from the Tempest. Seeing this quote often makes me think of how all of our past decisions have shaped the very moment in which we find ourselves. Only now are we at the beginning of what is to come.

All of your yesterdays are prologue to your decision to become husband and wife. With that decision comes excitement, joy, and a lot of wedding planning. If you’re wondering how I made the leap from Shakespeare to weddings, it’s because your wedding day is the beginning of your lives together. One day it too will be prologue. I know it’s hard to imagine right now as you are busy planning your wedding, but some day, one of the only physical reminders you will have of your wedding are the photos.

I believe in timeless wedding photos that will still look good framed in your home in years to come. I believe in photographs that live outside of your hard drive and cloud and on display on your walls and coffee tables. I believe in wedding albums that will serve as a reminder of the day you both felt the happiest on days when times are hard and your love needs rekindling.  And while your wedding photos may never make it into the National Archives, they will live in the archives of your family history for years to come. That’s really all that is important in the end.
