Kiki & Matt's Eastern Market Engagement Session

With Kiki & Matt's wedding coming up, I thought it was the perfect time for their engagement session to hit the blog!

Okay, can we just talk for a minute about how much I seriously adore these two?! The moment we started talking engagement sessions, the idea of color powder came up! Um, hello, of COURSE!

And it really was as awesome and hilarious as we expected - not just the color powder, but the whole session!

Check it out!

PS - Kiki & Matt - did I MENTION I'm super freaking excited for your wedding?! It's going to be epic. You two are ridiculous amounts of awesome.

Ashley & Dan's Great Falls Engagement Session

These two. Seriously. I adore them. Ashley & Dan are two of my favorite people ever to photograph. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about them! They are totally awesome, super laid-back (my favorite) AND ridiculously cute together. I literally could have dragged them around Great Falls all day long. And needless to say I can't WAIT for their May wedding!

They joked at the beginning of the session that they should have their phones on them for a few photos. We got back to the parking lot and decided to do it! :)

Amber & Cary's Georgetown Engagement Session

Now that my wedding season is winding down, I can catch up on more of my awesome e-sessions from this fall! I met up with Amber & Cary to shoot their e-session in Georgetown on a perfectly beautiful day in October. They even brought their two fur babies with them! Perfect, right?

Amber & Cary - the moment I found out you met playing World of Warcraft, I knew we were going to have a great time! I absolutely loved meeting you guys. It was clear how happy you make each other.

Bevin & Brian's Washington DC Wedding, 5.9.2015

From the moment I met up with Bevin & Brian on their wedding day, I knew it was going to be magical. Though they had not seen each other that morning, their glowing smiles matched perfectly. It was a day filled with sunshine, donuts, laughter, mimosas, and love.

Bevin & Brian, you two were a dream to work with. Thank you for the blessing of asking me to capture your beautiful day.

Flowers: Shelly @ The Flower Biz

The day started at the Courtyard Washington Embassy Row Hotel, at least for the ladies.
