PHOTOGRAPHY

valuing the beauty of letting moments happen

intimate wedding photography in northern virginia and dc

LIKE A HANDWRITTEN CARD on perfectly pressed stationary, YOU savor THE little things in life

— ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR WEDDING.

Let's face it - wedding planning can be stressful when you're looking at a 100+ person guest, juggling vendor calls, and keeping a close eye on that budget spreadsheet. 

Let's dial it back to the now.

What do you truly want from your wedding day? If you want your wedding to be filled with good food, good people, and good photos (without the stress of having to be ushered around to each guest, unable to have conversations because you're moving from thing to thing) - look no further. I get it.

but wait,
what exactly is a micro-wedding?

To me, a micro-wedding or intimate ceremony is defined as any wedding that is expecting around 50 guests or less. While in my own wedding planning journey, I realized the importance and intention of capturing the cornerstone moments with your closest friends and family - this has since been the core reasoning why I am incredibly drawn to smaller weddings. 


let's do this thing

sound like you?

- megan & alex

My family and friends faved about Andrea's skill behind the camera and bubbly personality for days after the wedding."

"OUR WEDDING PHOTOS ARE ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE.

- LIZZY & RYAN

She has such a joyful, fun personality and really puts you at ease."

"It felt like having a good friend taking our photos.

- hannah & mark

She did such an excellent job making my husband and I feel comfortable, and was the type of photographer who will help guide you in every aspect of the process.

"She is not only an amazing photographer, but also is the type of human being that just brightens any room

the magic of photography occurs when i step back and let moments happen

The benefit of a smaller wedding is taking the time to be more intentional with the elements that matter most to you. 

Smaller weddings allow for less stress, more intention, and an overall relaxing experience. All those moments you want captured, from your  family formals to the little details you’ve almost already forgotten, will be captured and more (without the stress of a crunched timeline).

Focus on your friends, your family, some wedding bliss, and I’ll capture the rest. I gotchu boo.

I’m all about quality over quantity - whether it's with your guest list, wedding photos, or accessorizing.

That means more joy, more “now”, and fewer distractions.

"She has all of the professionalism in the world and yet can still make you feel like her best friend"

my philosophy

inquire about your wedding

Quality over quantity and doing things right the first time. You invest in things you believe in.

Clear, transparent communication and respect. You want your needs to be heard and valued.

WHAT TO EXPECT

COMMUNICATION

Raise a GLASs if you believe in:

INTENTIONALITY

A detailed to-do list is your JAM. You value having a solid plan to lean on - and rewarding yourself for completing said plan ;)

ORGANIZATION

Time is valuable. It should be spent wisely, focusing on the things that matter most to you.

WORKING HARD & PLAYING HARD

A PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE THAT RENDERS REVIEWS LIKE THIS

"ANDREA GENUINELY WANTS HER COUPLES TO FEEL THEIR BEST. AND FEELING OUR BEST SHOWED IN THE PHOTOS SHE CAPTURED.

She knows how to command the room and she knows how to make everyone feel like she's just in the background capturing small moments. She's an incredible photographer to work with."

-Kelsey and Kevin

"ANDREA PUT US AT EASE WITH HER MATTER-OF-FACT POSITIONING WHEN WE WERE NERVOUS ABOUT POSING..

..and her bubbly personality and sheer delight at what she was capturing was infectious and made us so excited to see the results."

-Erin

"I REALLY LOVED HOW ANDREA ACTUALLY GOT TO KNOW US AS A COUPLE AND FELT LIKE AN OLD FRIEND. 

 She was so prompt with responses and always making sure she was meeting our needs. Her photos are to die for and I am so happy we'll have those memories for years to come."

-Lauren and Eddie

I LOVE A LITTLE KATE MIDDLETON CLASS, BUT REALLY, I’M ALL JESSICA DAY VIBES OVER HERE

andrea, here.

Feeling confident and joyful in front of the camera is the responsibility of the person behind it. It’s up to me to radiate warmth, joy, and humor between each frame so your photos BEAM with emotion.

I want to make you chuckle. I want to make you grin. I want you to connect with your partner and your guests. I want you to be totally immersed in how you feel, and not worry at all about how you look (because you look like a million royal bucks - come on!)

I make sure you’re prepared and relaxed so the day feels as smooth and cozy as a cashmere scarf. Whether that means firmly sticking to the timeline, sneaking you an espresso before your vows, or handing you my flip flops so you don’t step in the mud in your heels - don't worry, I've got ya covered.

WHY I LOVE northern virginia engagement SESSIONS

GETTING TO KNOW YOU IS FUNDAMENTAL

Pre-wedding sessions are the perfect solution so that we can meet and get the jitters out together. Use this option for engagement photos or as rehearsal dinner coverage! This helps me get to know you and your guests before the big day so things can feel even more organic.

Yes, I only book weddings that have professional coordination or planning. Wedding planners are extremely valuable and help vendors do their jobs better. Instead of wrangling the catering staff before your reception begins, I’d rather we all be stress free as you enjoy walking into your reception as a married couple for the first time. :)

I have a 70+ page wedding guide. It helps you coordinate with your wedding planner to prepare for details and moments that sometimes get overlooked. 

No worries! I have 10+ clear, plastic umbrellas with me that we can use for outdoor photos, whether it's with a large group or just a few. They always look super cute!

YES! I’d love to travel to your location, either domestically or internationally. Travel costs are $60 per hour after the first complimentary hour of drive time. I always book my own airfare and lodging fees, and roll into your final package price so you don’t have another thing to coordinate. 

I have a wonderful community of talented wedding photographers I trust who can step in. They share my values and will treat you with absolute kindness, respect and professionalism. They deliver the photos to me, so you will still get my editing style!

Absolutely! My style mixes questions and prompts to evoke genuine emotion, with clear and reassuring posing directions so we capture a mix of formally posed and as-it-happens photojournalism.

Yes! I would love to hear more about your vision, and create a custom package based on your wedding or engagement session location, or other unique needs. I create custom packages for all of my clients.

I usually book 9-12 months in advance, but it varies on the season! Definitely still inquire to ensure I'm not booked on your date. 

It definitely depends! I usually suggest that the sweet spot for intimate weddings is about 4-6 hours. This ensures that I grab a few getting ready photos and extends all the way up until the main events of your reception, but every day is different! I'd be happy to customize pricing that fits the vision for your wedding day.
