So many blog posts to write and so little time with the holidays upon us. There are a lot of exciting things going on around here lately and in the midst of all of the madness I'm sad to say that my father has been very ill. But I must say that with great friends and family around, I feel as loved and supported as ever so thank you to everyone for your incredible support and  best wishes. Although I've known Nicole & Mike for only a couple of short months, they have proven to be as lovely and supportive as they could possibly be. After photographing their wedding last month, I became shockingly attached to their families and I'm excited to share all of the images that we created together. For now, here are a handful from their engagement session. Wedding images to come along soon as well. Enjoy!

This session almost didn't happen. I drove into DC under some rather ominous-looking storm clouds which had intermittently been spewing rain and gloomyness over the DC area for most of the afternoon. I sat in my rental car parked just off of M Street in Georgetown, now and then sticking my arm out the window to see if the rain had stopped while I texted to Laviana who was doing the same thing just blocks away. Luckily for all of us involved, the sun started to poke through and we managed to get the weather we had been hoping for. This was my first meeting with Laviana and Zach, who could not be more adorable if they tried. So after a quick latte at La Madeleine, we wandered around Georgetown for a bit, along the canal and then down to Washington Harbor, which I was very glad to see was

On a rather ominous-looking Sunday afternoon, the clouds parted, the sun came out and I met Kendall & Keith at Glen Echo Park for their engagement session. Since we had never actually met before, the 3 of us sat down at a picnic table for a chat and it wasn't long before the laughs were flowing and they had completely charmed me. Kendall, I must say that you write some of the most appreciative emails I have received. So excited to see you both again in November! And thank you to Jen Stiebel of SoCo Events for hooking us up. It was just like a blind date gone very very right.

When I first heard from Morgan about her wedding plans, she wrote me one of the most excited and enthusiastic emails I had ever received from a bride-to-be and I immediately knew we would be a great fit. So...during one of my most recent trips back to DC, I hopped on a plane to Boston so that I could shoot Morgan & Jordan's engagement session in and around their neighborhood. And wouldn't you know it, just seconds before this sweet couple walked over to me, the skies opened up and it started raining on us. But on a positive note, running for cover forced us to find some great indoor locations in a hurry, locations recommended to me by my awesome friend (and local Boston photographer) Connie Miller. Morgan & Jordan, SO excited for your big day at Congressional Country Club...soon! :)

When Catherine & Robert asked me to shoot part of their engagement session "on a bench downtown", I thought they were referencing the now famous 500 Days of Summer bench where I shot last year with Jay & Mike. Catherine's response of "no, it's far less romantic than that" made me smile. These two simply wanted to revisit a set of benches in the courtyard between two rather non-descript office buildings where their romance had initially bloomed. I thought it was a sweet and personal thing that they wanted to go spend some time in a place that was familiar and special to them, even though to the outside world, these were just any old benches. You know there are a million and one locations you can choose for your engagement session but I think there's something about that place that's only special to that one couple is kind of
