Engaged: Kate and Chris
{Leesburg VA Engagement Portraits}

Leesburg Virginia engagement portraits
Online dating can be scary. And nerve wracking. How do you put who you are into just a paragraph. How can one paragraph show that you’re funny and sincere and loyal and whatever else you may be? And then the photo? Ugh, the photo. It has to be perfect, but not too perfect. Showing us at our best and most attractive to someone – anyone- else, right? It takes a brave soul to explore the world of online dating profiles. But luckily there are so many actively finding dates and long-term romance online that there’s plenty of advice and encouragement to go around.

For Kate and Chris, their online romance was immediate from the first date! They met up innocently enough for lunch one day. Because if it goes badly, lunch is just a quick meal if needed and then you can part ways. Lunch for this couple though was just the beginning of their day! They had such a great time together that they met up again later the same day for dinner. Two dates in one day is when you know you’ve meet someone special!

Kate and Chris are getting married this spring, but we met up a few days ago for the engagement photos. It was supposed to storm all day and we worried about rescheduling. Luckily we just moved up our time to try to beat the rain. And we did, because of course there was no rain at all! Figures, right? Either way, we captured some great images together so enjoy the highlights from Kate and Chris’s engagement session!

Married: Fiorella and Kyle
{Leesburg VA Wedding Photographer}

Leesburg Virginia wedding at Morven Park
It was just before the night wrapped up when Kyle took to the microphone. He proudly proclaimed that he had just had the best day of his life and invited all his fellow UVA alums to the center of the dance floor to sing out the school’s fight song before the last dance. As the circle of friends grew and grew to accommodate everyone flooding out to join the couple, it was a perfect way to end Fiorella and Kyle’s celebration – surrounded by the people who mean the most to them with feet tired, smiles wide, and hearts full.

The wedding was at the always gorgeous Morven Park in Leesburg. Next to the gardens, friends and family gathered under a towering old oak tree to witness their vows. Kyle anxiously tried to catch a glimpse of his soon-to-be wife over the standing guests and fought back tears when he finally saw her walking down the aisle to meet him. During the reception, Fiorella didn’t just have a first dance with her dad, but waltzed with all the important men in her life from dad to grandparents to brothers and several other extended family members who had flown in all the way from Peru. It was a really sweet tradition to witness!

And let me tell you, these families knew how to dance! The floor was PACKED all night long with young and old alike showcasing their best moves. So by the end of the night, whether you knew the UVA fight song or not, you too would have had tired feet, wide smiles, and a full heart.

Enjoy some of the highlights from Fiorella and Kyle’s wedding day!

Portraits: The Martinez Family
{Leesburg VA Family Portraits}

Leesburg Virginia family portraits at Ida Lee Park
My schedule doesn’t often allow for many portrait sessions throughout the year, but when I can I’m always happy to meet up with new families. To hear their stories. To see what bonds them together. And to learn why they chose to commemorate a time in their lives together in photos.

For the Martinez family, it was a rare chance to capture them all together since so many spread around the country. They had all travelled back to Northern Virginia to celebrate a high school graduation. With everyone around for a few extra days, I was able to meet up with them in Leesburg – both downtown to capture their hometown and at Ida Lee Park to give them a more variety with park-like feel.

Enjoy some of the images from our afternoon together!

Married: Heather and Jeremy
{Leesburg VA Wedding Photographer}

Leesburg Virginia wedding at River Creek Club
When Jeremy met Heather, she was everything he had hoped she would be. They met on Match, and as Jeremy set up his search criteria he entered words like beautiful, smart, successful, employed, beautiful (again for good measure), and international. Heather immediately popped up to the top of his list. And while he was sure her list of matches was much longer, he was excited that she chose to go out with him. They met up for a first lunch date at Mon Ami Gabi, which fortunately led to second date of listening to jazz, which led to many more dates and chances to experience life together.

Heather and Jeremy were married in late June at the River Creek Club in Leesburg surrounded by friends and family on a gorgeous summer day. They chose to leave the heat behind and escape to a quick honeymoon in Montreal, Canada where Heather can practice her French and put it to good use for the two of them while there.

I was excited to be part of their day and hope you enjoy some highlights from their wedding day!
