Family Photographer| Oakton | Virginia | Jennifer & Daniel

As a Family Photographer, I photograph all over Virginia — in Oakton, VA, in Sterling, VA — even in Vienna. While we love photographing families, we have a special fondness for weddings and engagement sessions.

Washington, DC and Northern Virginia are both popular locations for engagement, wedding and Day After Sessions with Ever After Portraits.  As part of our wedding photography collections, you not only hire two wedding photographers, who specialize in wedding photojournalism or capturing the emotion of the moment, you are hiring wedding photojournalist who LOVE to capture the essence of the connection that two people share.

When you ask them, their stories are completely different.

Dan swears that she asked HIM out.

A smile lights Jen’s eyes as she assure you that that is just not true… she was discussing dinner with friends and being the type of girl she is, she felt it would just be rude not to include him.  And so she did.

Two different stories definitely converge  as memories of their shared history starting with those first few moments have grown into a certainty that this is the one person they see forever with.

If she had to pick out the moments when she knew…it was quite easy…when he sang Disney songs with her…when he was able to love her in all her glory and fill her days with fun…last Christmas, with her family,  she knew that he felt like family.

If you ask them, they will say…it just fit.

We think it fits, too — and we are so happy to be the photographers that have the privilege and honor to document this unique love that just fits.

Watch thier montage and let us know if you agree!

Portrait photography studios in the Sterling, Fair Oaks or general DC area are each unique and each one has an area they prefer to photograph at. We love taking photographs outside in our family portrait studios — our outdoor studio is perfect for families or couples who want relaxed and natural photographs.

Engagement images usually take place before the Wedding day.  Ashley and Patrick chose to have their engagement photography done in the suburbs near Washington, D.C. in our fabulous Northern VA outdoor studio.  We also do Weddings and Portraits in the Washington D.C. metro area.

So, I had a little bit of a harder time than usual picking out a song for Ashley and Patrick’s engagement montage.   Now, yes, I could have easily used a boring love song that can possibly describe every couple on this planet, however,  I wanted it to be really special and unique to them especially since I know how important music is to them.

When we first met with Ashley and Patrick, we hit it off right away.  Not only were they the coolest couple, but we liked the same music!  I know this may not seem like a very big deal but you try finding someone who knows bands from ‘The Used” to ‘The Maine’ all the way to ‘Mayday Parade’.  And it’s even harder to find TWO people that love that kind of music.   Suffice to say, we were in love with these two.  We kept our fingers crossed hoping that Patrick and Ashley would choose us to photograph their wedding and ta-da, they did!  I can’t even begin to say how excited we were!

The engagement session was awesome.  The weather was perfect, and the images, if I may say so, turned out amazing!  We couldn’t have done it without a laid back couple like Ashley and Patrick who were content to let us capture the essence of their love for each other.  Isn’t their ease with each other shown in the love on their faces?

The song I chose for their engagement slideshow is: Your Song by Mayday Parade.  It’s not a traditional love song but I thought it fit because I know that bonding over similar music choices was a big reason Ashley and Patrick fell in love with each other.  This song tells the story of two lovers who can’t wait to one day be united forever.  Poetic, right?  Since the wedding day is fast approaching!

Now, that brings us to the present day.  The engagement session is done.  The guest album designed.  The last thing we have to do is share our vision of what we saw when we documented their love story!

Ashley and Patrick, weI really, really hope you like not only the song but the images we were able to capture of you two just being yourselves (in love).

We can’t wait to photograph your wedding!!

Photography Studio Tysons Corner family portrait photography

Having a photography studio near Tysons Corner, which is in the Washington, DC metro area is wonderful! Not only because it is a very popular location for family portrait photography, but also because we get to photograph so many different things — whether it is the engagement, wedding and Day After Sessions of our wedding clients or those with families who come to Ever After Portraits. As part of our wedding photography collections, you not only hire two wedding photographers, who specialize in wedding photojournalism or capturing the emotion of the moment, you are hiring wedding photojournalist who LOVE to work in DC.

It was a little cold that day but the sun was shining and the sky was a glorious shade of blue. There were hardly any clouds in the sky. Mindy and I were not sure what to expect. We had met Kara before but had never met Ryan! By the end of the session, we were all laughing — it was so much fun! As we were going back through the images, one thing was apparent — Ryan and Kara are in love! L-O-V-E! The way they look into each other’s eyes, the way they laugh, the way they cuddle — are all unique and it was truly a joy to be able to capture that!

Kara is just as cute as a button as they say down south. She is also stunningly beautiful! I love her green eyes! Ryan is the perfect match for her — and they both looked very stylish in their white sweaters. Ryan’s matching his ice blue eyes. Can you tell we have a thing for eyes? Lol! So we must say with such gorgeous subjects, we really love the way the images turned out!

Ryan and Kara . . . we cannot WAIT to photograph your wedding! We know it’s going to be beautiful. But until then, we hope you enjoy these images.

If you’re searching for a family portrait photographer near me in South Riding VA you’re likely to find your next family photo.

Washington, DC is a very popular location for engagement, wedding and Day After Sessions with Ever After Portraits.  As part of our wedding photography collections, you not only hire two wedding photographers, who specialize in wedding photojournalism or capturing the emotion of the moment, you are hiring wedding photojournalist who LOVE to work in DC.

Tarsha and Donald are different from most couples.  As soon as we met them, we “knew”.  The type of light bulb moment that comes when a good idea pops into your brain.  Tarsha and Donald are just like that . . . a good idea.  They’re perfect together!  There’s no wondering here, Tarsha and Donald are in LOVE!  He likes to make sure she looks the best with a stylish watch on her wrist.  While she makes sure he’s well taken care of — even by her family when they eat together every week.  These two are a classic example of what becoming a family looks like.

Did I mention they have a really cool love story too?  Well, both Tarsha and Donald ride motorcycles.  How cool is that, right?  Her bike club and his bike club happened to meet at a local restaurant — Friday’s — that particular evening.  Tarsha and her friends were sitting in the same area Donald usually sits.  One thing led to another and they were sitting across from each other, talking, enjoying each other’s presence.  Donald said he “knew” right then and there that Tarsha was the one for him.  We couldn’t agree more.

We were so happy to be able to capture even an hour of the love that you both are so fortunate to have found.  Thank you!  We hope you enjoy the slideshow!!

It was a Monday night. It was late and her fuzzy slippers warmed her feet as she lounged on the couch…he fidgeted nervously in his Lazy Boy, wondering if she would understand why he made the book…so their kids would know what life was like at this moment.

She was looking at through the book and thinking how out of character it was for him to create something like it, it seemed so random. Questions filled the pages — what types of music did they listen to, what things did they like to do together…pages with places for photographs of them…spaces for notes about their past, present…and wait…their future?

Her eyes flashed with irritation as she looked up at him and reminded him…what future? For two years there has been nothing concrete…not the wedding she wanted to plan, not the ring she craved to wear, not the proposal she longed to say yes to…it was about that moment that her eyes caught the light of a bright, shiny, verrrrryyyy large diamond ring, connected to a hand and as her eyes traveled up to his face, the look of love in his eyes as he said the words, “Will you marry me?” made the wait quite worth it.

Watch the slideshow and see the ring. See the eyes. See the love.

Two sets of footsteps mold themselves into the sand, leading up the beach to two people.  Two friends.  Two lovers.  One is rather nervous as he hopes the other doesn’t notice the small square box lodged securely in his pocket.  The other is carefree, with nothing but the wind in her hair and the setting sun to admire.   Meet Jim and Jen.

Jim planned for this moment.  The moment in the Outer Banks, (with Jen’s family anxiously awaiting their return) to drop down on one knee, and ask the woman of his dreams if maybe, possibly, she would like to spend the rest of forever with him.  Jen’s face responds even before her words do.  Tears of happiness stream down her face as she accepts this man, Jim, to be her husband.

When we met Jim and Jen for the first time, this was the first story we heard.  Gosh, how romantic, we thought.  As time continued on, we planned for Jim and Jen’s engagement shoot.  We truly wanted it to be special, for such an awesome couple.  And I have to say, as we looked through the images, we agreed that this is one of our favorite shoots.  The setting sun, the backlit foliage, a gorgeous couple . . . everything was just perfect! We think this couple is perfect, too.

To Jim and Jen — thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your love story.  We hope you thoroughly enjoy our slideshow presentation!
