One of our favorite parts of being wedding photographers is hearing our couple’s stories! We love knowing how it all began, how they first met and fell in love, the proposal, and all the things in between about how they share their life together and their testimonies. Rachel and Brett’s story is probably one of […]

Have you ever watched a photographer at work and seen them posing their subject in the middle of some relatively normal and un-spectacular place…and then seen the final image and wondered HOW in the WORLD they got such an average spot to look so darn amazing?! Well…we have too. It is one of the things […]

We STILL feel like we are in a dream after our insanely gorgeous senior session with Jenna! Her vision for her session was a backdrop of wildflowers and we wanted to give her just that! Shayne and I are HUGE dreamers when it comes to finding the perfect location for our clients. During our location […]

This summer we had the honor of working with Maribel of Eight Tree Street Floral in a beautiful Chinoiserie Chic styled shoot! She did an amazing job planning and styling the shoot…and the florals were, of course, INSANE. The shoot was hosted at AJAX, a brand new venue in D.C. that had offered a contest to reward […]

Your handsome prince has just popped the big question…and you said YES!!! You are suddenly swept up into an overwhelming sea of suggestions, to-do’s, deadlines, exciting ideas, and soooo many choices to make!

We have been at the park so much lately because of the great weather! Whenever we can find a little bit of time in our schedules to get out, breath some fresh air, and let Rhittie play on the slides, we make sure we do! He is growing up so fast and LOVES the slides!! […]

a little about us...


We are best friends, proud parents of our adorable little son, Rhitten and passionate followers of Christ.
