If it is not obvious already, these two are quite a fun couple. Cynthia and John are the pair that doesn’t stop laughing or enjoying whatever they are doing. It was very cold the morning we met up for their shoot, but that did not stop them from quite literally dancing their way around the streets of Old Town Alexandria. These two have a love of architecture, history and Disney…specifically Donald Duck, so there was never a dull moment in our conversation. And even if their had been, John never took a moment too seriously. He had myself and lucy lookers laughing as he scooped Cynthia again and again. Cynthia and John, I loved spending time with you both. You two are such a great reminder to truly enjoy each others company and to not take things too seriously. I can not wait for your wedding at the Willard in just a few short months!

What a way to kick off the New Year than with a family I love. I call this the Libby Lane Press family, because let’s be honest, when you own a business, the family is just as much a part of it. It is hard to believe how time has flown since I first received an email from Nicolle asking if I was interested in collaborating on some of her business work. Four years, multiple epic birthday parties, hundreds of cupcakes, publications, pinterest failures and an additional child later, here we found ourselves on a Sunday afternoon.

Nicolle is famous for being brutally honest about the “struggle with the juggle” and Nicolle and I are admittedly some of the biggest clowns when it comes to that. Nicolle is first and foremost momma bear, and her darling children and bulldog pearl make for quite the spectacle on a daily basis. This Sunday we were together was no exception.

Nicolle, we both love motherhood, magical childhoods and dreaming big and that makes for a pretty great friendship that I am so thankful for. Cheers to the New Year ahead for your family and for our ventures in motherhood and business.

And to all the other momma bears out there… cheers to a year of loving them little and loving the struggle with the juggle.

I love these two. I loved them as a bride and groom and I love them even more as a husband and wife. They are big hearts and dear friends who I have grown to love even more over the past two years. Yes…two years have passed, since their beautiful Belvedere wedding.

The joy of having a Christmas wedding, is that for them there is always a reason for an anniversary session for “holiday photos”. Or maybe just another reason for Ali to wear gorgeous white tulle;) (Sorry Jacob!) They were so fun to spend the evening with at the base of Sugarloaf Mountain. Congratulations on two years Ali and Jacob. And thank you for allowing me to photograph your lives together. xoxo

Since it appears mother nature believes that it is summer, I am going to take a second to pretend it actually is and show you all Kelly and Brandon’s beautiful engagement session. These two met me early one fall morning for a stroll along Fells Point. I loved hearing about what they both love…would you guess Brandon is a huge fan of taking pictures? This made it even easier to photograph these two as they were both equally committed to all of the kissing and romance we can pack into one photo. Kelly and Brandon are beautiful inside and out and I am looking forward to their wedding this June when mother nature hopefully knows what season it is. Congratulations you two!

I remember the moment Alex started following me on instagram. You know you get that little plus sign that someone new is following you and you stalk, I mean check to see who they are;). The last image she had posted was one of her getting engaged at Disney World. I had a hunch we might just get to work together and I think I let out a pretty loud “Yesssssss” when I saw her email come in about their wedding.

I am pretty certain these two are the complete package of fun, style and romance. They laugh at themselves and at each other and were so completely at ease in front of the camera. We had such a great time talking about their wedding and of course Disney. Alex and Joey, you two are just wonderful and I can not wait to see you as Mr. and Mrs. next year. Lot’s of love to you both.
