A Romantic, Surprise Wedding Proposal at Stone Tower Winery (Leesburg, VA)

I’ve been searching a long time
Someone exactly like you
I’ve been traveling all around the world
Waiting for you to come through
— Van Morrison

This was a pretty amazing way to spend a Friday afternoon in August (thought it was HOT). As if a huge ring and a surprise proposal weren't enough, there was also a surprise party with the couple's closest friends and the bride's parents.

So many happy tears! And so much happiness!

Romance & Chihuahuas at Great Falls (McLean, VA)

You make me happy when skies are grey.
— Johnny Cash

It's finally spring (yay!!) and, in remembrance of winter, I'm blogging this engagement session from early March. On the downside, it was a little colder than expected - but Bobby and Andrea made the best of it (actually, to be honest, they were so in love that they barely seemed to notice the weather). And on the upside, we practically had the whole place to ourselves.

I can't even summarize how much I love spending time with this couple - I'm so excited to shoot their wedding this fall (though sad the world's coolest chihuahuas won't be in attendance).

Cats and Dogs at Jones Point Park (Alexandria, VA)

Time spent with cats is never wasted.
— Sigmund Freud

I don't blog couples nearly enough (really I don't blog anything nearly enough) and one of my goals is to start featuring more couples sessions here.

As you know, I love candids. But with a dog and a cat - I was a little nervous that "real moments" wouldn't be hard to capture. Luckily, both pets totally rocked out this session (how cute is she in her basket?). And even though it was a cold morning, I ended up having a blast with this perfect family of four.
