A few times each year, I have the opportunity to second shoot for other photographers around the DMV. I thought it would be fun to share a beautiful fall wedding at River Farm in Alexandria that I second shot for a friend of mine. I hope you enjoy this different perspective from a wedding day! […]
Maddie and Jackson had a gorgeous fall wedding at King Family Vineyards. This one was extra special to Anthony and I since we are lucky enough to call these two friends! Fun story: I did a mini session of Maddie and Jackson with their dog, Argo, a couple years back. I was convinced that Jackson was […]

After a brief delay due to the pandemic, Emily and Tejas finally had their Indian-American wedding at Wintergreen Resort this past summer! It was a three day event and I am so grateful I was there for the entirety of it. I met their family and friends and learned about traditional Hindu wedding traditions. Thursday […]
Audra and Justin celebrated their love with a late summer wedding at Clyde’s Willow Creek Farm. The pair started the day by getting ready at their separate homes. While I was busy photographing the details and the girls, my second shooter was photographing Justin and his brother. The couple kept their wedding party small with […]
Disclaimer: Not all weddings have a bride, and some weddings have two brides. This blog post is for brides who might be thinking about a bridal portrait session where we take additional portraits prior to the wedding. I receive so many questions asking – Do I need a bridal portrait session? The answer varies for […]
It’s official – Lucy and Ben tied the knot in a gorgeous, spring Dover Hall wedding! They, like everyone else who was planning a 2020 wedding, were impacted by Covid. Their original wedding was scheduled for September 2020, but they eventually landed on postponing until May 2021. And let me tell you – the weather […]
Okay – I know 2020 was a dud, but this wedding was nothing less than beautiful! Katelyn and Josh tied the knot during a warm summer Saturday at the Barn at Turkey Ridge. This was my first time at this venue and let me tell you, it did not disappoint. The barn itself is situated […]
Part Two is here! Late summer and fall seasons did not look the same, although we managed to stay pretty busy. We had senior portraits, engagement sessions and plenty of weddings, both small and medium-sized. We managed to contract Covid (even though we were SO careful!!) but were able to quarantine and not infect anyone. […]
We had the pleasure of working with Hannah and Anthony for our engagement shoot in Charlottesville, VA. Not only did she know the best spots for photos around the area but she timed it out perfectly so the sun was setting when we arrived to Raven's Roost, which made for stunning photographs! She also helped us include our new puppy in the session, which made for some adorable photos.
Hannah is an absolutely phenomenal person to work with! She and her second shooter (her partner, Anthony), were so fun while being a calming presence on our wedding day!
Hannah does amazing work and is an incredible value as a wedding vendor. You cannot go wrong picking Hannah to work with you on your wedding!
We loved having our engagement photos taken by Hannah and Anthony!! Hannah was very easy to work with and accommodated all of my requests! The photos she took were absolutely amazing and I could not be happier with them!!
Hannah did an amazing job with my wedding photos! She is easy to contact and got back to us in record time, every time. She was professional, but still made the entire process fun! She coordinated the first look pictures beautifully. She gave great direction to everyone in each picture so they knew exactly what she was looking for and gave time for us to be ourselves as well. She got us through the family portraits in great time (which was important to me), but I didn't feel rushed and they look amazing! The bride and groom session was so much fun as well. I didn't anticipate enjoying that portion of the wedding as much as I did, and it is truly thanks to Hannah. She was even willing to do another session with us later in the wedding on the beach which was exactly what I wanted.
Hannah and her second-shooter, Anthony, shot my wedding photos and did an amazing job! They perfectly captured the feel and energy we were going for and I could not have asked for a better experience.
They were so friendly and easy to work with and made us both feel comfortable even though we're not natural photo-takers. I would definitely recommend!
I can't recommend working with Hannah enough. We booked her for our wedding and engagement shoots, and were so impressed with the quality and the look of the photos.
Our photos are gorgeous and we will treasure them forever!
My fiance had Hannah photograph his proposal, which was a total surprise for me. Hannah was awesome, and caught the moment perfectly! We then took engagement pictures, and
She gave us the pictures very quickly, and there were so many. We 100% recommend Hannah.
I hired Hannah as my wedding photographer in 2016, almost 2 years in advanced, for my Sept 2018 wedding and when my husband and I finally got to meet Hannah for our engagement photo session in Sept 2017, we knew instantly that we wouldn't have wanted anyone else for this job. She matched our personality's perfectly and we knew that she was going to make our BIG day even more enjoyable.
I knew she had it handled. We could not be happier with Hannah, her fantastic second shooter and the third shooter she brought to help with her for the day since she was injured. We received TONS of pictures and there is not one that we did not like. If I could have Hannah to photograph every big event for the rest of my life, I would without a doubt!
