Alexandra and Don's DC Wedding {DC Wedding Photographer}

I was excited about this wedding for months leading up to it...really, ever since my engagement session with Alexandra and Don. They are one of those couples that you just love to be around and they photograph incredibly well too:) Their day was perfect. It was full of meaningful details to them and their lives together. It was full of people who love them too (I'll be honest, I got teary during some of the toasts at the reception just hearing their friends and family talk about them). And to top it all off, the weather was even perfect this August day! Alexandra and Don, thank you for letting me be a part of your day! Congratulations again!!!

I love that Alexandra got ready in her childhood pink accents and all!

One of those teary moments for sure...this was Alexandra's "something blue." Her parents were married wearing she wanted to be married "in jeans" too. She had this jean heart sown into her dress with the dates of her parents wedding anniversary and her own inside. Pretty special, right?

This is when she showed them the "jeans" inside her dress..

love the rosary tied around her bouquet!

such a beautiful bride!

I found out later in the day, that all the men in Don's family were married in a white tux coat and black pants...very classy.

that is one good looking ring bearer...

...and an oh so sweet flower girl too!

first of the best moments of the day

seriously, such a happy couple!

they never stop smiling...really, they don't.

I don't get a lot of couples that do an outfit change, but this one did! Such a fun part of the night!

And their outfits were perfect for the salsa dancing that happened right afterwards...a surprise they were planning for months in advance.

I hope you enjoy the preview Alexandra and Don! So much more to come...


so sweet mother and son in Central Park {NYC Family Photographer}

Meet Jennifer and Cameron! Fellow Floridians (yes, I will always be a Florida girl deep down) visiting family in the city in need of a little Central Park photo shoot...yes please! We met up at one of my favorite places in all of NY, the mall/bandshell area of Central Park (this place never ceases to amaze me, I feel like it's the best of NY all at once) and played non stop until it was time to go. Things I learned about this 2 1/2 year old in our short time together...he loves to run! I mean full out run too, pretty sure he would beat me in a race any day. And he loves balls and boy can he throw them too! It goes without saying that I was fully entertained all afternoon:) Jennifer and Cameron, thank you for spending part of your visit to NY with me. I hope you had a great rest of your visit!


Laura and of my favorite pairs! {Spring Lake, NJ Family Photographer}

It's no secret how much I love photographing this little boy and his momma! It's been nearly 2 years now since I first met them (well, met Laura at least...pregnant and waiting for Oscar to come). Every time just gets better and better too! Laura and Oscar spent part of their summer in Spring Lake, NJ (easily a new favorite town of mine) and so I was definitely excited to come out and photograph them. We spent time at their beach house and on the boardwalk...seriously, doesn't get better than this for me! I hope you enjoy these sweet photos as much as I do!
