    Portraits: Baby Grace | Northern Virginia

    When we met Gracie’s mom Kayla, we were smitten right away. Seriously one of the nicest people we have ever come across, a few minutes with Kayla was like reuniting with an old friend. It was great learning about her life and how excited she was for this new adventure. Check out her story here!

    We were so excited when we finally got the chance to meet baby Grace ❤ She is truly an angelic child already and we took so much joy from photographing her. She loved the flowers we brought just as much as her mommy and I loved admiring her throughout her first KJP photo shoot! Time flies when you’re having fun and before we knew it, it was time for Gracie to take her nap and for us to head home. We are so happy to have spent this quality time with mommy and baby, and look forward to the next photo session!

    Wedding: Colleen + Steven | Downingtown Country Club | Downingtown, Pa

    Years ago when we first met Colleen and Steven, we were so impressed by this young couple, already together for years, and their bright, vibrant energy. Every time with these two was a good time, and being around them was a blast! We quickly learned that is a theme for the members of the Sliwinski family and the people that spend their time with them, they are all true joys to be around!

    High school sweethearts, Colleen and Steven have spent many years together growing up and growing in love. They did it all with the support of their tight-knit family and group of friends, who are quite literally the best and most loving cheerleaders we have ever met! That closeness made Steve’s proposal on the fourth of July, a holiday celebrated with the entire family, even more special! They value their close relationships and they also value a good time! Put those two things together, and being a fly on the all at one of their events is such a great experience.

    From the exciting moments that had us cracking up, to the speeches and moments that had us tearing up, this wedding was absolute perfection and we are SO happy Colleen and Steven made us a part of it! Look on and see what all the fuss is about ❤

    Wedding: Courtney + Brandon | Capon Bridge, West Virginia


    We could NOT have asked for a more perfect day. That blue sky, the pleasant weather, the gorgeous location, the beautiful couple…it was all so much more than we could have asked for.

    Totally calm and chill all day, Courtney and Brandon greeted us, welcomed us, and made us feel right at home from the very second we showed up. Already developing a cherished friendship with Courtney, it was really special for me to be photographing this day for her. Our breaths were taken away when we stepped out of the Jeep and looked around at the setup. (SO much of the setup you see below were crafted, built, cut, folded and put together by the bride and groom themselves. DIY and party planner prodigies.)

HAND-MADE by the bride and groom!) are crafted by Mr. and Mrs. Spaid themselves, those lovely antique chairs were shipped in for this occasion and now make a statement in their home ❤ We’d call it a win 😉 CBS-33CBS-34CBS-41CBS-43CBS-44CBS-47CBS-48CBS-54This gorgeous lacy gown is from The Barn Bridal in Bunker Hill, West Virginia.
