Washington, dc based wedding photographers

about the team

I am a Washington, DC based wedding and portrait photographer. Originally, I trained as an architect and graduated from University with a minor in Fine Arts. My architecture background enhances the way I see and frame my subjects. When I'm not working I love to travel and explore. My favorite cities are Copenhagen, Tokyo, and Paris (who doesn't love Paris?). When I’m home, my favorite place in DC is Cady’s Alley in Georgetown. I love poking through the furniture galleries with my wonderful husband, Tom.
As a photographer, my goal is to draw out the moment behind every photograph. I seek to create images that bring tears to your eyes; the kind that make you smile every time you look at the photos and cherish them for a lifetime.

I’m also a trained architect and worked for a well-known DC architecture firm for 6 years. As Bonnie's business partner and director of operations my role is to assist clients and potential clients with the business of photography. You'll probably get a few emails from me, but since I’m a photographer myself you may also see me helping out Bonnie on site at your event or session. 
My design style tends toward modern, but I love a classic style as well. My favorite place in DC is the National Portrait Gallery and any one of the many awesome coffee shops in town.

Photographing weddings is my absolute favorite! Capturing the events of a wedding day in a combination of fine-art and photojournalistic style is a challenge that I whole-heartedly embrace. I shoot weddings with both film and digital photography, using a Contax645 for the film and a Canon 5d Mark 3 at night and in dark settings. I provide the high-res images with my packages, and you can expect about 50 images for each hour of coverage. I live in Maryland and have a studio in Bethesda, but if you're looking into a destination wedding I'm all ears! 



During the week I photograph families, anniversaries, couples, and any other portraits. The ideal time for these photos is a few hours before sunset, and it usually takes 1 hour.  Email me directly to schedule a date and time. 

I also offer one-on-one mentoring sessions to photographers during the week. Please inquire for further information.
