• Independence Day - 2014

  • Over the last few weeks, I've been watching the HBO miniseries John Adams, which is based on a book by the same name by David McCullough. While I realize some dramatic license was taken and it's not entirely historically accurate, it gave me a greater appreciation for the courage and sacrifices of t[...]
  • H Family - Spring 2014

  • The family you see here is one of my absolute favorites. This is the third time they've asked me to take their family portraits. While I'm always flattered when clients return for more photos, I'm also excited because I love seeing families grow and it becomes easier to work with people I've photogr[...]
  • Alisha & Tim - June 7, 2014 - LDS Wedding Photographer

  • A huge congratulations to Alisha and Tim on their wedding! You'll probably notice that while this features quite a few photos, there aren't any of the ceremony. Alisha and Tim were married in the Washington DC LDS Temple; cameras aren't allowed in the temple, so we did our best to make up for it by [...]
  • Full Time!

  • For the last five years, I've been a part-time photographer and a full-time staffer on Capitol Hill. Well, that all changed¬†on Monday; for the last week, I've been a full-time photographer as well as a stay-at-home dad. When Jenny was pregnant with Reagan, we knew childcare just wasn't the right cho[...]
  • The Davis Family

  • I've known the Davises for a while, so naturally, I jumped at the chance to do their family photos. We went to one of my favorite places to do their photos, Green Spring Gardens in Alexandria. Their little boys loved seeing all the wildlife there, but I think the turtles were their favorites. [...]
  • Sandgren Family Photos

  • The Sandgrens were two of the first people I met when I moved to Alexandria. When they asked me to take photos for this year's Christmas card, I was more than happy to help them out. It was a chilly November day, but they were troopers. While it wasn't that windy, the cold motivated their sons, espe[...]
  • Fall family photos with the Erbs

  • I took these photos in November, but the Erbs asked me to hold off until after Christmas on sharing on the blog (they were sending photos to the grandparents as presents). They've been my most frequent and most loyal clients. It's hard to believe this was our fourth session - it still feels like jus[...]
  • The Gorman Wedding

  • "Why are you guys so awesome?!" You know it's going well when the bride says that to her photographers towards the end of the night. I worked with Kelli Brewer for Katie and Ryan's wedding and they were, borrowing Katie's words, "so awesome!" Not only was this in my top 5 favorite sessions of the ye[...]
