It may seem unusual to put a wedding photo as my picture of the year, but this photo has so much below the surface which is what makes it an important one for me. The photo is of my cousin who got married New Year’s Day 2011. They had one photographer for the day and […]
This is easily my favorite photo of 2011. The morning newspaper had a section on the top photos of 2011, and although there were plenty of memorable and tragic moments captured throughout the world, this one of Scott Jones and Alexandra Thomas was one of the viral photos of the year.

Merry Christmas everyone! hope you have a great weekend with plenty of family, food, festivities, and hopefully some presents sprinkled in.
Something has become pretty clear to me in terms of a trend amongst the older portion of the government workforce I’ve interacted with over the years.

There are many assumptions I’m making for this post, drawing mostly from my experience.

I’ve put off writing this post because I kept telling myself it wasn’t relevant, but since I first thought of writing it, I seem to keep meeting people with DSBS, or Don’t Stop Believin’ Syndome. I refer to people with DSBS as the DSBS-ers. This is formerly “Small Town Guy/Girl in the Big City Syndrome” […]
Two years. It’s been a little over two years since I photographed my first wedding. I will never forget being so simultaneously nervous and excited to be the one taking photos for my friends’ special day. I can’t thank them enough for believing in me and trusting me with this great event. The weather forecast […]

I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph the wedding of Conan and Astrid, two wonderful people who were really easy to work with. They had a small ceremony at Gadsby’s Tavern in Old Town Alexandria on October 29th, 2011. Best wishes to the happy couple!
