Emily & David | Wolf Trap wedding | Vienna, Virginia

Emily and David were married in a very special place, a place where no one had ever been married before. David’s family was involved with the founding of Wolf Trap – not “the Barns” wedding venue, but the actual amphitheater and park – and he and Emily decided to say their vows in the Children’s Theater, outside, amongst the trees and paths that David grew up playing around.


Emily started the day with her hair stylist of 10 years, Mickey Bolek from Michael Anthony Salon. And, oddly, her makeup artist was someone I see all the time when I get my hair did. DC gets smaller every day.


Then we all hopped in our transports and headed out to a fantastic day at Wolf Trap.


Many cheers to Emilie of Bliss Weddings & Events for planning and All The Things.


Personal: So Much Random Stuff

I haven’t done a personal post in ages. I get behind. It happens. Actually, I’ve just yesterday evening come back from a trip to Madrid and I leave next week for The Netherlands and England! I thought to myself: self, put up those Madrid photos before you get slammed with the next batch of travel photos. Except, I have three months’ worth of other crap from various travels and adventures that I haven’t posted. So instead of “hey, I just got back from Madrid!”, you get a bunch of random stuff. Enjoy!

In chronological order, just cuz:

Love these little glimpses into your life!

Sarah & Rob | Crystal City maternity session | Arlington

Sarah and Rob are having a baby and that’s rad. They live two steps from all these places we shot at in Crystal City – the kind of session I love doing – just wandering around their neighborhood. It’s especially nice to do for a maternity session, so baby-on-the-way can see where Mom and Dad hung out before they came along. Also, Crystal City is mad beautiful, if you take the time to look at it.


Their pup Maggie is going to have to give up some attention soon enough.


I kind of love the dog creeping on them.


Congratulations, you guys!
