Northern Virginia Wedding Photographer

my portfolio

My passion for people is what guides me as a photographer. I served as a nurse for many years and during this time, I held the hands and hearts of people who often wished they'd taken that photo. I sat with family members that understood how photos appreciate over time because in the end they are all we have left along with memories.

Photography is about capturing the feeling, the moment, and the emotion. Your wedding day photos are so much more than shoes, flowers, and perfection. There is beauty in authenticity and that is what I aim to capture.  My gift is documenting your day in such a way that all the moments you see bring back memories.

I strive to make couples feel like naturals in front of the camera. 
I use gentle guidance and organic movement to help you feel like you’re alone with each other, whether you’re in the heart of the city or in the middle of the dance floor. There’s nothing I love more than building relationship so that you can be your authentic selves in front of my lens.

You fell in love for a million reasons, but near the top of the list is that you can be your true selves together. You love the special moments, but you also love doing life together - and that's what your marriage is all about. 

Whether you're planning an intimate elopement or a party on the dance floor, you deserve to feel completely comfortable just being yourself. Because when your wedding is a celebration of your connection as a couple, no detail will be more memorable than the way you loved each other at the start of it all.

That's why my goal is to help you feel joyful and relaxed in front of the camera. I want to capture it all but in a way that allows your day to unfold organically.

before i tell your love story,

let me tell
you mine.

ten years ago,

I met my husband in the ER on the Fourth of July. Our connection was ordained by God because it was pure coincidence that we connected ! The night we met, I was staying in the hospital and we watched the fireworks together through my window.  I knew he was my person.

Iyke is the reason I believe in lifelong love. We got married soon after meeting, and our wedding was an intimate ceremony in a local garden - just the two of us. Ten years later, we're still completely inseparable. We have four little ones who keep us on our toes, and I wouldn't have it any other way!

MEET MY PEOPLE

Iyke and I are polar opposites who balance each other out. I remind him that laughter is important, and he reminds me to rotate my tires. I thank God daily for sending me a partner who leads our family with pride and loves me out loud!

Husband, love,
& the other half of "we"

FILL IN THE BLANKS

My Favorite

The photos on my mantle

aren't the ones that came out perfect -
they're the ones that are filled with love.

The tiny toes. The new baby smell. It takes me right back to those early days!

My first photos of my babies.

Whose memory we'll carry with us in our hearts for the rest of our lives.

My mother-in-law, our angel.

Traveling together is one of our passions.
