Welcome to our blog! We are based outside of Washington D.C. but we find ourselves traveling all over to photograph amazing events and people. Sit back and check out some of our latest work featuered here!

Kevin and Steve- A D.C. Engagement

Kevin and Steve are another couple that I have known since my days at Elizabethtown College. We have kept in contact through social media (mostly twitter). One day, Kevin sent me this:

I am still so grateful for his confidence in me as a photographer, and of course I said yes to a wedding up in New York. It wasn't until earlier this year when I became their official wedding photographer!

Kevin and Steve cannot agree on when they officially met, but they truly became friends their freshman year at E-town. Kevin and his co-anchor were hosting the college's radio show, and they were struggling. Steve ran down to the studio to try to save the show. While he was there giving the co-anchor his number in case she needed more help, Kevin saved Steve's number his phone. Then called him and said, "Now, you have my number too!" They eventually began dating. Then four years after Steve saved the radio show, Kevin proposed to him while in Sea Isle City, New Jersey.

Kevin and Steve drove down from Pennsylvania for their engagement session. We started off in Georgetown, went to Yards Park, and ended near the Capitol. Right at the beginning of the session, we walked down under Whitehurst Freeway, and it started POURING.

Once the weather let up, we were able to get some amazing photos.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Kevin explains the shoes: "Steve has wanted a pair of the Nike Air Force 1s, Jones Beach edition for years. I found a new pair for his birthday last year and surprised him. Since we weren't on Long Island for the photo shoot, I thought it would be fun to have a shoe shot of the bottom since that's where we'll be in May 2014. "

Huge thank you to Cory for assisting and having great ideas.

Kevin and Steve- I truly cannot wait until your wedding in May 2014, and thank you for the support you both have given me throughout my time as a wedding photographer!
