Catherine and Daniel

Catherine and Daniel joined me on Sunday, down by the Tidal Basin, under the cherry blossoms. Their energy with each other is so filled with love, and just so natural. This wasn’t an engagement shoot, but just a shoot! Catherine loves photography and said she does a photo session every year. I’ve gotta love someone who is as passionate about images as I am….

Didn’t you think this would be about Cherry Blossoms?

I’m living and breathing blossoms this time of year, but have been go go go for so many weeks, that some of my favorite sessions haven’t made it onto the blog yet! So let’s take a little trip to NYC, where I did a super inspired engagement session with Aaron and Stephanie in Times Square. You’ve already seen our reenactment of VJ Day in…

Getting Ready….

I went and got my allergy medication prescription filled yesterday.Cherry Blossom season, here we come. If you’re considering booking a full-length family or engagement session for this Cherry Blossom season, give me a call today. The schedule is already filling quickly. Speaking of that schedule, it’s filling with a lot of new clients. I’m so happy to welcome you all to our little Stacey…

Sunday Sunday

Some great sessions today – although we were freezing in morning and afternoon – you can’t tell in these shots! First, an early morning engagement session with Melissa and Tripp at the Kennedy Center and Lincoln Memorial. They met at GW as freshman in college, and both worked at the Kennedy Center restaurant while in school. After many years of dating, Tripp popped the…

Lately Part 2

Reed proposed to Kristin in Book Hill Park (apparently quite nervously, as the story goes!), so logically, that’s where we did their engagement pictures. As soon as I met them, I was inspired by their look, which reminded me of a fresh take on 1970’s surfer kids cool. It’s hard to explain, but when I saw them in my LCD after the first few…

Just another friday…

Today was a dash of this and a dash of that — all super celebratory events, which made things really fun. I’m spoiled by all the great weather we’ve had these last few weeks. Last year at this time I had rescheduled one couple EIGHT times because of rain. Eight times. This year, not a single rain date has been called thus far. So…

Sunrise

It was a glorious sunrise over the Tidal Basin this morning. I had the pleasure of working with Chris and Megan, who are high school sweethearts, and getting married in August in their hometown of Schenectady NY. They were so great in front of the camera, really natural and at ease. We had just a great morning exploring the sights at FDR, the Tidal…

Another beautiful day

Contrary to popular belief, I actually don’t live on the Tidal Basin. But these days, it sure can feel like it. Although when you get to see an incarnation of this every morning, it doesn’t feel a bad gig: This morning I worked with Jolina and Samara, clients from last year. Although last year we worked in January on the Tidal Basin, when we…

Eddie and Tami and the last of those blossoms…

Eddie and Tami hired me to shoot their wedding next year … – a cherry blossom themed affair that sounds like it’s going to be a blast. We got to know each other better by doing an engagement shoot down at the Tidal Basin to get the tail end of the cherry tree spectacular. Socked by winds and rain a few days before our…
