Emily and Patrick

Old Town Alexandria Wedding

The suite of the Key Bridge Marriott was alive with activity; bouquets had just been dropped off, snacks and champagne were spread across the table, babies were being held, bridesmaids whizzed around the room in their floral robes making sure items were still being checked off the to-do list. Emily sat patiently in the hotel…

Anne and Charles

Spring Grove Farm Wedding

Anne greeted me with a smile and said, “I’m having so much fun!” She sipped her moscato and laughed as her bridesmaids scurried around her, stopping to check their hairstyles in the large mirror that hung above the green velvet couch in the family room.

Susie Marks - Courtney, I’ve never met you in person, but have followed your photography and blog for some time. Your story touched my heart. While we have 3 healthy children already (youngest will be 8 this year), we have longed for more. After 2 miscarriages over the last 2 years, we spent quite a bit of time in the “valley”. Praise God, we are currently expecting and our little one is due to arrive October 2nd. I will pray for a healthy pregnancy for you and rejoice with you as well! Hugs!
