RECENT WORK AND MUSINGS
Did you catch Loretta and Nathan’s Belmont Manor wedding in last month’s print copy of the Washingtonian? Loretta is a self-described Anglophile, and I loved seeing their colorful English garden inspiration come to life at Belmont Manor in Elkridge, Maryland. The couple married under magnolia trees at Belmont Manor and then greeted friends and family […]
Carolyn and Sonitha were originally supposed to be married at a hotel in Washington DC in 2020. Like many of the couples impacted by COVID-19, they chose to reschedule to 2021. When local DC restrictions still did not ease up in the spring, they pivoted and changed venues, selecting the beautiful Stone Tower Winery in […]
I have been keeping this wedding under wraps for a few months now, and am so excited to finally share Aimee and Ayush’s Hindu Christian fusion wedding photographed at the Four Seasons Baltimore, featured on TheKnot.com today! Planned perfectly by LynnAaron of Nouvelle Weddings, Aimee and Ayush’s fusion wedding incorporated a bright terracotta, burgundy, and […]
Lucy and Sean are FINALLY married! This lovely couple had to postpone their wedding three (or was it four?) times, due to many of Lucy’s family and friends facing travel restrictions from the UK, where she grew up. They hosted their wedding at the beautiful Manor at Airmont in Round Hill, Virginia. The Manor at […]
Rachel and Gabriel’s summer wedding at DAR Constitution Hall was the perfection fusion celebration for this California duo. Gabriel is originally from the DC region, so providing a classic DC wedding experience was important to Rachel and Gabe. We started the day off at the Willard Intercontinental where the bride and groom got ready with […]
One of our last big international trips before the pandemic was to Japan. I traveled to Tokyo with my brother a few years ago, but Darren had never been. We were eager to explore Japan in the fall, and our trip did not disappoint. We spent time in Tokyo, Kyoto, and Hakone, and also took […]
Liz and Ted exchanged vows at the charming Rams Head Inn last fall in the New York Hamptons. Nestled on Shelter Island, Rams Head Inn was the perfect venue for their laid back wedding day with waterfront views and cedar shake siding that so perfectly embody the Hamptons. Ted spent his summers vacationing on Long […]
As of the day that I’m sharing this post, Jess & Chris’s original wedding date at the Winslow Room in Baltimore has not happened yet. I’ll let you pause and reread that! Yes, they were originally scheduled to be married later this October, and then this summer I got an email from Jess. “Winnie, we’re […]
Popping in to share Melissa & Eric’s downtown Frederick engagement session today! Downtown Frederick is one of my favorite ‘city’ recommendations for couples who might be a little crowd averse. There are a number of sites to shoot at which offer quaint city vibes, mixed with a little nature here and there at Baker Park […]
I finally had a chance to meet up with Carolyn and Sonitha for their Kennedy Center engagement session in DC! They were actually supposed to be married this weekend, but like many other couples this year made the difficult decision to postpone until 2021. The Kennedy Center offers the perfect mix of classic and modern […]
BEHIND THE LENS
Director, curator, documentarian, photographer, storyteller. Inspired by history, culture, and the stories that connect us.
My family immigrated to the United States as refugees, leaving their lives behind in search of a brighter future. With all their worldly belongings contained in the suitcases they carried, the scant photographs that crossed the ocean have served as a lifeline to stories untold, allowing me to piece together my family legacy, one image at a time. Decades later, I discovered photography as a medium to document my travels (37 countries and counting!) and encapsulate the joy and happiness that each new adventure brings.
Currently booking for 2023 and 2024 weddings in Maryland, Washington DC, Virginia, and beyond.
