Boho-Chic with Sascha

This year has been busy for me with photography, and I’m grateful for all the people who’ve helped me advance both in skill and opportunity. One of the coolest people I’ve had the pleasure to collaborate with over the last few months is Sascha Hughes-Caley, a talented actress/artist/model who provides not only a fabulous boho-chic aesthetic, but also a savvy creative eye to our shoots.

The photos from the below set were taken in Great Falls, VA (a location that Sascha found). Essential to tying together the look was the makeup done by the skillful Libby Nye. Both Sascha and Libby styled the shoot and provided terrific artistic perspective.

Jessica and Tim’s Engagement

When Jessica and Tim approached me a few weeks ago about photographing their wedding and engagement photos I was both honored and excited!

We decided that an outdoor shoot (before summer got its heatwave on) was ideal for the engagement shoot. The engagement shoot took place at Kalorama Park (which has special significance for them) and the Spanish Steps just west of Dupont. There was even an awesome mural that Jess and Tim found near Kalorama Park that really made the photos pop!

These two are such a fun and easy going couple! I think the photos really reflect their personalities and their desire to have relaxed, casual portraits taken. I had a blast photographing them both—they were natural with the camera and provided comic relief the entire time!

Teaser: Promo Fashion Shoot

Last week I teamed up with creative director Joel Castillo to shoot a series of promotional fashion photos.

The shoot took place outdoors at Brookside Botanical Gardens in Wheaton, MD and was a ton of fun! The models were absolutely stunning (this set features Amanda Jackson, Briy Gilgeous, Kaleigh Cohen, and Kate Salerno) and were great to work with! We got a lot of amazing shots that will be used in advertisement and program materials—for now here’s a quick teaser of some of the photos the day.
