We’ve always loved the beach! Work load keeps us from going very often, but my (Shayne’s) 31st birthday was a great excuse for a beach trip and we had such a blast! It was also our first family outing that we were able to photograph with our new Canon 85mm f1.4 lens (which is the […]

Birthday Beach Trip

I still can’t believe this is her FOURTH Mother’s Day….no, FIFTH because she was already a mother in May 2015 when she was pregnant with little Rhittie! I’ve known Ashley for almost nine years, have been married to her for just about five, and have been AMAZED as I’ve witnessed her becoming the incredible mother […]

These two are seriously just so thoughtful, genuine, & kind-hearted and are the type of clients that photographers dream about!

Simon & Victoria | Classic Summer Wedding | Bridgewater Virginia

One of our favorite parts of being wedding photographers is hearing our couple’s stories! We love knowing how it all began, how they first met and fell in love, the proposal, and all the things in between about how they share their life together and their testimonies. Rachel and Brett’s story is probably one of […]

RACHEL & BRETT | Sweet Meadow Engagement Session in Lyndhurst, VA

Have you ever watched a photographer at work and seen them posing their subject in the middle of some relatively normal and un-spectacular place…and then seen the final image and wondered HOW in the WORLD they got such an average spot to look so darn amazing?! Well…we have too. It is one of the things […]

Trusting Your Photographer’s Locations

We STILL feel like we are in a dream after our insanely gorgeous senior session with Jenna! Her vision for her session was a backdrop of wildflowers and we wanted to give her just that! Shayne and I are HUGE dreamers when it comes to finding the perfect location for our clients. During our location […]

Stunning Lyndhurst Wildflower Senior Session | Jenna Buckner

This summer we had the honor of working with Maribel of Eight Tree Street Floral in a beautiful Chinoiserie Chic styled shoot! She did an amazing job planning and styling the shoot…and the florals were, of course, INSANE. The shoot was hosted at AJAX, a brand new venue in D.C. that had offered a contest to reward […]
