New parenthood is one of the craziest life experiences there is. We had the amazing honor to document the Purcell family in their home as they welcomed their sweet baby girl, Madison, into the world.
We keep most of our own family pictures over on our personal blog, but as we've started doing more and more in-home sessions for other families we thought this one deserved a spot on our main blog. If you'd like Bernadette to make portraits with your kids in your house please contact us for details!
Jenn and James didn't let a freezing cold April day bring them down on their wedding day. By contrast the first day of their marriage was packed full of warmth and love, surrounded by their closest family and friends. Overlooking farm country in Northern Virginia, their wedding at Shadow Creek could not have been more perfect. Here's a glimpse into their day.
Jenn and James, we wish you both the absolute best!
What a wedding. What a couple. What a way to start off the 2018 season!
This is the story of the day Sara and Eric gave their lives to each other in a church in Alexandria, Virginia. The same church where Sara's parents were married! The two of them have overcome a long distance relationship while Eric has been deployed in the military. It's rare to find a couple as obviously confident in their love for one another. The way these two look at each other. The way they speak of each other. It's beautiful. Here's a glimpse into their day and what we saw.
I (Steve) wanted to break the flow a bit and share a post outside of our wedding and family work. A huge part of my life has always been music. Long before photography I was a musician first, and have played guitar and bass in a variety of bands over the years. For the past four years I've had the honor to collaborate with my good friend, Osama Malik, and his music endeavors. He's been killing it lately in the songwriting world, and is also getting ready to release his own solo project EP. To help launch his new website I got to combine my photography and music love into one and make portraits with him. It was one of the most creatively refreshing things I've gotten to do with my camera this year and so I wanted to share it here.
