Schenley Park Engagement | Sara + Dillon

Is there anything cuter than high school sweethearts? Sara and Dillon have the cutest love story, the best style, and I loved photographing their engagement session. Stay tuned for their gorgeous September wedding...I can't wait!

How did the two of you meet? We met in middle school and started dating in high school. I would stalk his locker after lunch. I was 15 and he was 16. We've never broken up. Or first date was in August 2007 seeing The Simpsons Movie but it wasn't until after our Snowball dance in January 2008 that Dillon finally had the courage to ask me to "go out" with him. We did long distance for 3 years. Until I graduated and moved to the D.C. Area where he had been for a year.

Tell me about the proposal! We were on vacation in Ocean Isle, NC with both of our parents and Dillon's sister. We went to the beach to "take family photos" and when I saw a large box poking out of Dillon's pocket and everyone getting their phones out I knew it was happening. I also walked in on Dillon asking my dad for permission. Then I was so nauseous so I just looked out to the ocean so that Dillon could get ready and everyone could deal with their cameras. Then My mom missed it all because she was fiddling with my dad's phone.

What are you most looking forward to on your wedding day? Seeing all my family together. Hopefully it's like a big family reunion. I love that love can bring all these people together.
 

Any other info you would like to share about your love story? We just balance each other out. A relationship is not always easy but after growing up together we went through so many changes and challenges that strengthened our relationship. We can't wait to finally be officially married after being together for ten years.

Bramblewood Wedding | Colby + Jackie

This day was filled with everything I love about weddings: gorgeous florals, an outdoor ceremony, the perfect barn, and the sweetest couple. After a morning full of unexpected rain showers, I was thrilled when the sky cleared and the sun came out just in time for the ceremony. And by sunset, you would have no idea that it had stormed earlier. Despite the stressful weather, Jackie and Colby never stopped smiling. And their relationship is what I loved most about this celebration!

Rustic Acres Wedding | Erica + Stephanie

I'm officially back from maternity leave, and I could not have asked for a sweeter couple to celebrate with. Erica and Stephanie had a beautiful day, complete with details executed flawlessly by GARNISH Event Design. Rustic Acres Farm was the perfect venue for their laid back event, and any wedding with double the bridal details is a favorite in my book. But what I enjoyed most about this day was the love between Erica and Stephanie. It was such an honor to document the beginning of their marriage, surrounded by their family and friends. Congratulations!
