Although you are viewing our portfolio on one of our Photography websites, our actual studio is located in Cascades, VA. We specialize in portrait photography. And it 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 Washington DC engagement photographers, who specialize in wedding photojournalism or capturing the emotion of the moment, you are hiring wedding photojournalist who LOVE to work in DC.
DC is a common seems to keep popping up for this couple!
They met under a full moon in DC! And got engaged in DC. So it was only appropriate that their engagement images be captured in DC!
Jen and Frank, it’s been such a pleasure … and we CANNOT wait until your wedding! We hope you love the images 🙂
We’d love to hear your thoughts so don’t forget to comment!
Do you value Portraits? Are you looking for a portrait photographer near Lowes Island VA? Do you want to commission the best child photographer because you feel your family is so valuable and cherished you desire on the best portrait images of them?
One of the cutest sessions ever — we can’t wait to show it to them! We got to use our vintage red truck and couch outside in our 2.5 acre outdoor studio.
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!!

Ever After Portraits is Mindy and Joriana Belcher. We primarily do wedding photography, but just like most wedding photographer, who provide wedding photojournalist, I have my favorite type of sessions. For me, that’s wedding engagement sessions.
Primarily, we provide our wedding photography to venues located in Washington, DC so if you know anyone interested in sterling va portrait photography, send them our way. But we want to focus on couples in Virginia, those who really desire their wedding photographer to be a wedding photojournalist and live in VA. That’s how Ashley and Ryan found us — they viewed our images online and they liked our style right away. We are always looking for a good fit as we want to meet our client’s expectations for the type of wedding photos they want to keep.
The first thing we came to understand about Ashley and Ryan: They are seriously in love — they can’t look at each other, without it ending in a kiss! I think it’s because they have known each other for such a long time. These two were neighbors and friends from the time they were 14 — and it shows. We dare anyone to take a look at their session and not agree with us!
Photographing couples in VA for engagement and wedding photography never feels like work to me. And when we have the pleasure of using our outdoor portrait studio, it is truly “play” time. We are a mother and daughter, a modern wedding photographer team with photojournalist style. Our focus is on capturing relationships with an emphasis on style, fashion and photojournalism.
When our latest couple proved to be a good fit for our style of photography, we really looked forward to photographing their engagement session. Justin and Melissa are just the cutest pair — we had great fun getting to know them in our Outdoor Studio Engagement session with them.
Finally, the weather cooperated, so with blue skies and smiles all around, we set to work. But it wasn’t work — it was so much fun!! For most of our session, it felt like we weren’t even there, as we watched these two lovebirds being themselves and having fun together.
The blue in the sky wasn’t the first thing we noticed either — these two both have striking blue eyes. Check out their slideshow, and see if you agree with us.
