Amy + Sean Tie the Knot! | Northern Virginia Wedding Photographer
Matthew + Sarah Engaged! | Alexandria Engagement Photographer

This certainly was a family affair. Allyn and Aaron decided to have their engagement session at Allyn’s parents home. They have gorgeous grounds with beautiful trees and meadows. To prepare for the session, Allyn’s dad put a vintage couch into their pick-up and drove it down to our portrait site. In tow were lots of dogs, kids, mom and Aaron. What a fun morning!

These two were so much fun to photograph. I love the vintage couch under the canopy of trees.

Allyn’s mom is so creative. She made the festive “Engaged” pennant and hung the lanterns in the tree at our next portrait location.



This is one of my personal favorites…

This is Jelly! Their adorable bulldog. Jelly loves to have her picture taken and decides when and how she will wonder into the photos. So cute.



I could not resist this photo! Jelly can jump when motivated. She LOVED the pinwheels!


So sweet together…


Jelly is circling… sniffing… and then kissing the flamingo. Oh my, what a lovable pup.


A note – Pamela you are amazing! I absolutely love the photos!!! I can’t wait to see more. Thank you so much I am so so pleased. I don’t know how I am going to pick just 30! (for my engagement portrait album) Allyn
