I’m getting ready to hit the road for a wedding today down in Lexington, but first had to share a little sneak peek of Billy and Brittany’s engagement session. We had a windy, but beautiful evening for their portraits last night!
2020 booking season is in full swing which means that my evenings are full of chatting to newly engaged couples about their dream wedding plans. Already 2020 is full of some amazing brides and grooms who I'm so excited to work with! I'm already over halfway booked for next year and many of the most popular dates are gone. If you're thinking about reaching out don't wait! It might seem crazy, but vendors are already booking well into the fall of next year and beyond (2021 anyone!?). There's nothing I hate more than having to tell a couple that their date has already been scooped up! I always urge couples to reach out to vendors who's work they love sooner rather than later. Whether it's the perfect planner, videographer, florist, or photographer we're all starting to book up so reach out! 2020 is just around the corner and I'm so excited to see all these weddings come together!

It’s no secret that I love details at a wedding. They’re so much fun to play with and the perfect creative warm-up to the rest of the day! While I have a bag of styling details like cheesecloth, ribbons, ring boxes, stamps and more, my favorite thing is to see what unique elements each bride and groom have and how they all tie together. I loved how well Kirsten & Tommy’s invitations tied into the color scheme of the day. This pattern made the perfect backdrop to show off her ring!
Wrapped up edits on Kostas & Isabella’s sunset engagement session at @bluemontvineyard_weddings and a nearby mountain overlook last night. Western Loudoun has some incredible views tucked in its mountains!
I haven’t been into DC for a session yet all summer or fall! Most of my 2020 couples this year have been opting for mountains and more natural scenes for their engagement sessions so I’m starting to miss these marble backdrops just a little. These classic monument views always look beautiful and are the perfect contrast if your wedding day is going to be at a vineyard out in the Virginia countryside. I’m crossing my fingers I’ll be back in the district soon for some sessions! Tell me if you were having your engagement session where would you want it to be? City, mountains, seaside, or somewhere else??
