Molly + Danny | Lincoln Memorial Engagement Session | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer

Molly + Danny | Lincoln Memorial Engagement Session | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer
Molly and her fiance Danny are both from Ohio, but a job with MPD brought Danny down to the D.C. area...and he took Molly with him! After about 4 years of dating the two were engaged and are getting married later this year. I was so thrilled to hear from her when she reached out to me for engagement photos but bummed to find out that I was already booked for her we[...]

Elissa + Neil | Great Falls Engagement Session | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer

Elissa + Neil | Great Falls Engagement Session | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer
Elissa and Neil are two of the sweetest. When Elissa first reached out to me about shooting their June wedding she expressed how already sold on my photography she was. Nothing like a little flattery to win me over! We met up in person for  lunch and as soon as I got to know them a bit better I knew I loved them for more than just their compliments! Both of them ar[...]

Chrissy + Ethan | Jefferson Memorial and Stone Tower Winery Engagement Session | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer
Chrissy is a girl after my own heart. She's a spinning enthusiast (she's actually even an instructor!), loves wine and good food and her favorite pair of jeans are from Amazon! Chrissy and Ethan are getting married at Stone Tower Winery (one of my favorites!) next year and she wanted to incorporate her wedding venue into their engagement shoot so we opted for two s[...]

Tom + Tessa | Westin Georgetown and Holy Rosary Wedding | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer
I had been eagerly awaiting Tessa and Tom's wedding probably as much as they had! We first met about a year and a half ago in a Peet's coffee shop and bonded over a 2.5 hour + conversation about everything under the sun! They quickly became two of my favorites and I've loved getting to know them over the course of their engagement. Their beautiful spring wedding, f[...]

Sara + Jared | Jefferson Memorial + Meridian Hill Park Engagement Session | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer

Sara + Jared | Jefferson Memorial + Meridian Hill Park Engagement Session | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer
How awesome is Sara's edgy style against the backdrop of D.C.'s classic architecture?! I'm so obsessed with everything about this couple's style and personality. From the minute Sara emailed me I knew she'd be a great fit. Besides the fact that she manages an Athleta store (which is only my most frequented retail establishment EVER) she is sweet, down to earth and [...]

A few months ago I had the privilege of working with Erin from A Charming Affair on this amazing styled shoot! Erin is one of the BEST wedding planners I know in the D.C. area. Her creativity and attention to detail are flawless and it's such a joy to work with her. Her heart, inspiration and details behind the shoot are below in her own words: When the owner of th[...]

Laura + Alexander | Holy Trinity and Park Hyatt Wedding | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer

Laura + Alexander | Holy Trinity and Park Hyatt Wedding | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer
Today's wedding is one I had been highly anticipating for a while! When I first met Laura and Alexander at Northside Social (one of my favorite Arlington spots) we hit it off right away. Between Alexander's Parisian connections (he's spent a lot of time there, is fluent in French and OWNS a French bakery!), their easy-going attitudes and spot on Seattle res[...]

Film Photography From Our Pacific Northwest Trip | Washington D.C. Film Wedding Photographer

Film Photography From Our Pacific Northwest Trip | Washington D.C. Film Wedding Photographer
I've been trying to shoot more person film work recently. I've found that it really trains my creative mind and eye by forcing me to assess ideal composition and subject matter. I shoot medium format which means I only have 16 shots on a roll film...and by the time you get done with all the developing costs it works out to costing around $3 per shot you take. So needl[...]

Year 5 | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer | Valentine’s Day

Year 5 | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer | Valentine's Day
This love thing. I'm still trying to figure it out. I thought I knew it when I loved my first pet more than I thought possible. I thought I knew it when I felt loving feelings toward old boyfriends who did nice things for me. I thought I felt it when I said yes to Ben's marriage proposal, strung out on a high of emotions that I thought were genuine love. But now[...]

I have some big news for me, Ben and Camille Catherine Photography! This Spring we've decided to pack up, sell a lot of what we have and move back to downtown Boston!!! (At least for a few months!) We are SO excited about this upcoming change that will happen mid-June after Ben's Air Force commitment is finished. For those of you who don't know, we came to D.C. alm[...]

One of my New Years resolutions for my business was to be more timely with blog posts...and it looks like I've already failed! Here it is January 10th and I'm finally getting around to thinking about 2016 and what I want this NEW year to look like. I have a defense though!!! Hear me out. I find the expectation that goal setting comes right at the new year to be [...]
