RECENT WORK AND MUSINGS
I’m back with another intimate wedding celebration to share with you, this time at Keswick Hall! Located in Charlottesville, VA, Keswick Hall just reopened after a multiyear renovation. From the moment you walk through the doors, you can tell that they left no room untouched. From the black and white marble floors, to the warm, […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of shooting an intimate wedding elopement at the DC War Memorial. Marilyn and Matt had big wedding plans for the summer, which all came to a screeching halt with COVID-19. They decided to tie the knot in an elopement ceremony at the DC War Memorial with just their […]
Time for a personal post! I’m sharing our anniversary photos, which I was able to DIY at home without an extra set of hands. Read on for the backstory and some tips on capturing self-portraits with a remote and tripod… We had our five year wedding anniversary planned LAST YEAR- a trip to the Galapagos […]
The 2020 cherry blossom season came early this year, only to be cut short by social distancing, and I am so grateful that we were able to make Bree and Robin’s cherry blossom engagement session happen! Their session brings so many smiles to my face because of their easy-going personalities…and because it’s the last time […]
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.
