Benitez Familia

It started with engagements, then a wedding.  Shortly after, maternity and then GGB’s first birthday.  I met Kat and Val in 2015 when I did their engagement photos in the snow at Ben Marl winery in New York.  I did their wedding the following July and found out Kat was pregnant as well.  I came back up to New York to do her maternity…

Minguez Familia

Photographing your best friend and her family is easy.  Picking only a few photos to post on the blog is the difficult part. I love this family so much and you will see why when you see these photos.

Kaitlin’s Family Photos

I worked with Kaitlin about three years ago in georgetown and we got to become good friends.  She was pregnant with Livia while we worked together too, so it was nice to see her all grown up (about to turn three) the other day.  She also has a sweet baby girl named Eloise and I am obsessed with her cheeks.  Both babes were dolls…

Stephanie & Stephen- Blizzard Wedding

When you think blizzard, you don’t exactly think wedding, however, that is exactly what Stephanie & Stephen had to think about.  Their wedding was to take place in the middle of Winter Storm Jonas.  Even though there was over two feet of snow outside, high winds, and freezing temperatures, they were able to tie the knot at Embassy Suites in Old Town Alexandria.  We…

Arynne in D.C.

Arynne and I drove around D.C. to take some shots for her real estate website. We lucked out with gorgeous weather!

Megan’s Dance Application Portraits

When Megan asked if I could do some pictures for her dance application, I was super nervous- I’ve never done dance portraits before, but I just went with it and I think they came out great! Megan is amazing and I was in awe of everything she did.  Also, I want her calves. And that blue door! My favorite pictures!!

Stephanie & Steve’s Engagement Photos

I met Steph while we both worked at Carlyle a couple of years ago and I’m happy our friendship has lasted even after both of us moving on from the restaurant.  She met her match in Steve, also a dog lover, and on the most perfect spring day, we spent the afternoon in Old Town Alexandria for some engagement photos.  We got lucky with…

Kat & Val- Maternity

On February 8 2014, I traveled up to New York to meet and shoot Kat & Val’s engagements. In July, I shot their wedding and on February 7 2015, I went up to New York again to shoot their maternity photos. I’m so lucky to have met these two and am very happy to call them my friends.  I spent 8 hours in NYC…

Kat & Val:: Wedding

I don’t even know where to begin on this one. I had the pleasure of meeting Kat & Val in February. My friend Katy [fetsch events] was planning their wedding and they asked if she knew of any photographers. One thing led to another, and well, magic (and friendships) happened.  I met Kat & Val at Benmarl Winery in Marlboro, NY.  There was about…

live in the sunshine

I took one of my favorite quotes & photoshopped it onto my favorite picture from Punta Cana. I plan to one day get the quote as a tattoo, until then, I will take Ralph’s advice and live in the sunshine.
