Berkeley Plantation Wedding: David & Hannah

It's not often that I get to photograph people's wedding that I'm friends with. David and Hannah are a couple I met about a year ago through a mutual friend ( love ya Jules!) and I already was a big fan of both of them going into the big day. Being part of them entering this beautiful union was very special. I hope I captured the love that is so evident between them. It was a lovely day, hope you enjoy this little video I put together... Cheers, Michelle

Alexandria Engagement Session: Krista & Andrew

Well, today you get to meet... my little cousin.... AHHH! Yes yes, we were little baby buddies crawling around in diapers and look he's all grown up now! LOL. Sorry to embarrass you Andrew :) Well Krista and Andrew have been dating for AWHILE... to put it lightly... and 25 years ago when I thought the time of the proposal might be coming I called the rights to do all engagement and wedding pics... and finally the day has come! YAY. Congrats guys. Love you both.

I felt really weird telling my little cousin to kiss someone. I hope my Aunt Laura doesn't kill me LOL!

PS. I shot this whole series balancing on the log (with all my gear) IN, yes IN, the swamp.... my yoga is paying off!

Cassie and Baris DC wedding

Happy Monday. (Today was kinda a crummy one for me but working on these beautiful images brought so much joy to my day).  From having met  Cassie at a corporate shoot I did, I already knew that she was GORGEOUS and so sweet. However, when I started scrolling through the pictures Pablo and Rachael turned it and saw these, I thought she is even more beautiful than I ever imagined. I just loved these shots of her loving on her daughter. So lovely.

Great job Rachael capturing these candid moments when no one knows... stunning.

There are many great shots from this wedding but today we're doing a quick sneak peak :)  I have so much to do!! But I just couldn't resist all these mother daughter shots like this below of Cassie with HER mom.

I know this shot it is not technically perfect (below) but I still loved it.

Congrats Cassie and Baris, can't wait to share more pictures with you soon! Love seeing our Monday posts but don't want to wait to see some fun, inspirational or beautiful images? Join us during the week on Instgram and Facebook to see the latest...


This is what we've been up to this week...

Pablo loves to cook amazing food and end his day with a nice glass of wine and his family

Rebekah is soaking in her new treasure... little Mason
I did some gardening, surfing, and yoga... heaven!
