Shannon & Jacob {Engaged}

If you're friends with me on Facebook you may have noticed last week I was raving about how awesome my job is  :)  These two are the reason!  Shannon and Jacob got married last Friday.  She's an Irish dancer and taught him a few moves for their wedding-day performance.  I was left speechless -- what an incredible show.  Barn weddings are some of my favorite!

 This mason jar chandelier!?  Jacob made it.

Daniel {9 Days}

One of my dearest friends and her husband welcomed their son into the world a few weeks ago.  I got to meet him when he was just 9 days old <3  He has already changed so much!  How important it is to capture those first few days while they're still tiny.  Welcome Daniel, you are loved :)

Angel & Max {Engaged}

These two were a delight to have in front of my lens!  When Angel suggested we meet in DC at 22nd and K, I knew the light had to be absolutely perfect.  We met at the seemingly normal location to capture a sublime sunrise and then headed over to the Reflecting Pool for a bit.  It was so fun!!  Who would have thought I'd be come a morning person?  ;)  Sunrise is quickly becoming my favorite time of day.  Chic and stylish, I can't wait to see what they have planned for their wedding day!

Candace & Bill {Engaged}

Meet the kindest, sweet-hearted, and beautiful couple: Candace & Bill.  I found myself happily at Lake Artemesia in College Park again to photograph their love.  We walked the many paths to find lots of little nooks and crannies hidden within the large park.

I loved getting to know these two!  Candace is a teacher.  I have such respect for teachers.  Teaching kids in a classroom where you're outnumbered 30+ to 1?  This profession requires a lot of patience and skill.  I can only imagine...  From what I understand, the kids love her.  And what's not to love?  Smart, beautiful, and kind.  What a lovely combination.  Her other half Bill is a painter.  Seriously - hats off to you.  After renovating my home last year and painting just about every room in the house?  Ain't no joke, painting!  I learned a lot, but I still feel like my cutting-in looks like a 2 year old's scribbles.  Now that I think of it, I should have asked for some helpful tips - since there's still more to be done.  It never ends!

These two -- love them -- you will too -- I can't wait for their wedding day!
