Aerial Photo- Autumn at Lake Anne

I recently put a camera up in the air to get a bird's-eye view of a beautiful fall day over our home here in Reston, VA. I used a GoPro Hero3+ black camera mounted to my homemade quadcopter for a unique perspective.

Nedda & Dominic's Big Day!

Nedda and Dominic's "big day" was one to remember.  Wedding bells announced their marriage and the massive bridal party piled into the party bus for some portraits at Hidden Creek Country Club, making it's final stop at the Hyatt Regency in Reston for the reception. The banquet hall at the Hyatt was resplendent with towering bouquets topped with peacock feathers.  As the band kicked off a steady drum beat, Arabic vocals, and a hypnotic flute melody, three belly dancers roused hundreds of wedding guests to their feet who surrounded the bride and groom while twirling napkins in the air. After dinner, a long table stacked with cookies and treats prepared by the families welcomed guests to take their fill and continue their sugar induced partying late into the night.

He did it again! - Alejo won another WPJA award!

I am so proud of my husband Alejo, he has won another WPJA award. Of course you have to have an incredible couple to work with and Kirsten and Matt were the perfect bride and groom.
So this competition is serious, tens of thousands of photographers submitting their work from all over the world.  It's truly tough to get noticed in a sea of amazing photographs, but Alejo has nailed it again!

Check out this amazing lit portrait that just won 5th place!

Kelli & Tim - Locking Love Down in Chicago

This wedding was special in more ways than one, we have had the pleasure, of photographing Kelli's cousin and two of her best friends weddings. This group of friends and family has taken us all over North America, from Niagara on the Lake, Canada to Las Vegas, one in DC and the latest Chicago! Every time we photograph this group, we get closer and closer. It's been a fabulous ride and we hope to see them all again and again.
Kelli & Tim are an incredibly generous and loving couple. This city wedding was full of life, love and lots of movement. The buzz followed us late into the evening. They were married at the Art Institute of Chicago, with stunning arrangements. Between the bride and groom and all the details, this wedding was full of eye candy.  Anthony Gowder and Greta Leigh handled the coordination, they were true professionals and their hard work shows in our photos.



I know, these shoes are smoking, if you must know they are Miu Miu.
