It doesn’t get much better on a cold, snow covered day than having George & Martha’s house all to yourselves to roam about and photograph a couple who makes you laugh through frozen fingertips and toes.

The marina in St. Michael’s was the perfect backdrop for Megan & Brandon’s December engagement session.  We laughed through the frigid temperatures and discovered Brandon’s hidden talents as fierce fashion model.  Cannot believe their wedding is here already!  Cheers to a wedding day filled with laughter and maybe a few happy tears.  xo

Random Wednesday thoughts. I have a slight tea obsession. I love the hunt for new brands of tea, pretty tea cups and exploring tea shops. I have a dear friend visiting this spring who shares this love so I’ve been looking for some places that offer traditional English tea service in Washington DC. I’d love […]
