On a warm fall afternoon I met with Ismaela and Simon for their romantic engagement photo session at the Jefferson Memorial in the heart of Washington D.C. Ismaela wore an elegant blue ballgown that paired beautifully with Simon’s tuxedo. With the beautiful architecture as our backdrop, we happily wandered around the Memorial and enjoyed the afternoon together. Here are just a few of our favorite moments from our together. 

For the couple’s second engagement look, they chose a softer, more neutral color palette that still looks effortless and chic. Dressing to compliment and contrast with your surroundings during your engagement session is something we often stress and fondly appreciate for our couples! This is one of the many tips and advice we detail in our Engagement Style Guide and I’m so happy that Ismaela and Simon took our advice to heart!  Having a couple that has such incredible fashion sense and style was a huge factor and I’m so thankful for Ismaela and Simon!  A warm thank you to Blush by Makki for making Ismaela look and feel beautiful for her engagement session.  

A big thank you AdeOla of Statuesque Events and we can’t wait for Ismaela and Simon’s spring 2019 wedding.

Adores long weekends with the family poolside, dog lover, and famous Mojito maker. Barefoot gardener, skincare junkie.

As a wedding photographer with over a decade of experience, I love to create beautiful, timeless imagery that captures all the emotions and feelings of the day. From the joyful to the sentimental, and the spontaneous once-in-a-lifetime moments that happen. I pour my heart and soul into each couple to ensure their wedding day is everything they dreamed and more.

I'm originally from Southeastern Canada and have settled in Virginia with my hsuband and three children. When I'm not behind the camera, you will happily find me in my garden or hosting an intimate dinner party. My friends will tell you I make the best mojito. And I've fallen in love with the art of sourdough. I'm a Libra-a hopeless romantic, and I believe that family is everything. And I will always think that retiring to Tuscany, Italy, and restoring an old villa in the countryside is a good idea.
