Shooting season begins once again as the taxes, organizing, planning, re-assessing season winds down. I like to think of my business as going through internal and external phases. December 24 – about mid-February is the internal time when I work on the guts of everything…and again in July when it’s too darn hot to do anything. The rest of the time is shoot, process images, meet with clients, print, prepare, repeat. Pretty cool to see this cycle repeat itself for the last three years, without fail.

So we’re going up up up the roller coaster, winding our way to the top for the shooting cycle kick-off. And what a session to kick off with! Loved working with Caitlin and Mike, who were great to join me so early in the morning, down in Old Town, Alexandria.

They’re a fantastic, low-key couple who were clearly great in front of the camera. Happy engagement guys! Enjoy these months of planning and thinking about your wedding and marriage, it’s unlike any other stage in your life….
