Meet Rebekah: This year's addition to team Rockstar!




You know how you always say "I wish I could duplicate myself?" ... well today I'd like to introduce you to our newest photographer Me... I mean, Rebekah! Over the last few years we've grown alot and Pablo and I needed a new Rockstar to join the team. I was tired and overwhelmed and I wouldn't hear of it. He kept saying "Just meet her.... she's just like you"... and now she's the third part of team rockstar! I wanted to take a timeout this week and share a little bit about Rebekah and show some of her beautiful work.




When asked to describe her work she said, "One of my biggest passions is capturing the precious, unscripted moments of life. Those moments last only a second, but you want to remember them forever." That really comes through in her work. This picture below is an example of that on her last wedding with Pablo.


 Another thing I love about Rebekah's work is she seems keenly tuned to capture female beauty. She always seems to capture the inner and outer beauty of her brides.







 When I first looked at her work I did see that she would fit right in with having that special gift of making couples feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera which is core to my work. 






 



She shares our artistic sense of composition and shys away from overly traditional poses which is a big drawing point for our brides.











 I hope you enjoyed getting to know a little more about Rebekah and we are so happy to have her on team Rockstar!

Silverbrook Farm Wedding: Jaqulyn & Andrew

Howdy ho! I have a lovely wedding to share with you this week. You may recognize some of these gorgeous mirrors, grounds, and the beautiful black barn.... well, it's one of (maybe my all time?) favorite North Virginia venues: Silverbrook Farm. Every couple though brings unique flavor, laughter and love, and Andrew and Jaqulyn certainly did that. So sweet, laid back and deeply in love, it was a beautiful day. Hope you enjoy
















Thanks so much to Elliott O'Donnovon for 2nd shooting with me. Most of these awesome guy shots are his....






LOVE this shot... great job E!






I really focused myself on capturing the full initial response the groom had, and I'm so glad... you can just see the emotion as Andrew sees his bride for the first time....






Hahaha!








I got sucked into the black and white on these...













HAHAHA! This sign made me laugh so hard
