Bedford Columns Wedding | Katie & Justin

September 15, 2016



Katie & Justin’s wedding at the Bedford Columns was such a stunning day at such a historical place! The Bedford Columns has such a long list of history that it blew my mind! This gorgeous building was built in 1848, and started as a college prepatory school for boys with Walter Reed of Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington D.C.. It then became a Confederate Hospital which housed wounded soldiers. The history goes on and you can read more here!
There were so many happy tears shed especially between Katie and her sweet dad. It touched something so deep in me that I had to stay hidden behind the camera so people wouldn’t see the waterfall of tears that I was shedding! I tell ya- Katie is a woman with a beautiful heart and passion for fun! This outgoing gal could light up a room with her adorable southern accent and stunning smile. When you first meet Justin you think, “Whoa, he’s a big tough dude” (or maybe it’s because I’m 4’11”) but then when you get to know him you realize that he is just a big teddy bear. He is beyond perfect for Katie. These two compliment each other in the most beautiful way. Congrats Katie & Justin!

I see the beauty in imperfect things. As a Christ-follower, faith is central to my life, work, and connections. I am fueled by joy, known for my bubbly and sunny disposition, and always with a warm hug. Imperfect beauty inspires my love for all things vintage, abstract art, and real love stories. I love moments full of grit and emotion; life off the beaten path; stunning views along the shore; and the juxtaposition of New York grunge and laid back Cali-vibe. 

As a mother of two, I am very familiar with how quickly life’s most important moments fly by too quickly. I will calmly and seamlessly guide you through frames that will endure. I strive to capture your memories with one-of-a-kind images full of meaning. I cannot wait to connect with you! 

I bring all of these elements to my time with my couples. With over a decade of experience in the industry, I know how to gently guide you through poses that are natural and beautiful. The transition into this sentence doesn’t make sense. Throughout your day, you will feel the love from those there to celebrate
 you two. 
When I’m not photographing weddings, I enjoy long walks in the neighborhood with my husband, my kiddos Tuxie and Sunny, and my labradoodle Hokie.. Also, I am a huge dog-lover! I’m pretty sure heaven is full of dogs. I can’t wait to connect with you, and yes, your pup is always welcome here!
