An engagement session is a really great way to meet your photographer, build a gallery of images that reflects this incredibly meaningful time in your life, and give you a little art for your wedding website, save the dates, and any media or screen spaces in your wedding reception (the Arlington Estate has gorgeous screens […]

I received a message totally out of the blue from a guy named Alex. He said he was flying in from Texas to propose to his girlfriend and really would love for one of us to capture it on camera. I laughed to myself. Flying in from Texas to propose? What could go wrong? Alex […]
