First impressions: do you think I’m a morning person? Hint: if you’ve ever been with me before 9am, you KNOW.
🤭
The answer is a very loud and enthusiastic YES. I am such a morning person! And since many (if not most!) of my engagement sessions are at sunrise (which is, like, 5:45am in the dead of summer) it’s a huge advantage that I’m ready to GO GO GO early in the morning. Honestly, I usually have to tone it DOWN for sessions. HA!
🙈
Soo & John made me wish I had an engagement session every morning! We had so much fun in Old Town on Wednesday and the PERFECT golden sunrise. I’m sharing all my faves on the blog today!

Creative entrepreneurs: do you remember the moment you realized what you were getting into?
🙈
My first gig as a second (well . . . more like third) shooter was completely overwhelming. There was SO much gear, technical jargon, and fast-paced ACTION. I felt fairly confident afterwards that this was not for me.
🙅🏼‍♀️
Well, CLEARLY something changed, because now I have a successful full-time career built around wedding photography! There was a lot that happened along the way, but one of the most significant influences was other photographers who were willing to help. Having connections & community to support me changed everything!
🙏🏻
It’s been three years since I launched HBP as a full-time career. A lot has changed (including our soon-to-be-launched new website & brand!), but my gratitude & heart for community has not. That’s why I am SO excited for this week’s giveaway! Have you entered yet? Check out yesterday’s post to learn more!

blind deboss will always hold a special place in my heart. these save the dates feature a meaningful verse along the edge and exude an aesthetic that is masculine, minimal, luxe and clean. truly one of my favorites to date.

#FridayIntroductions
We’ve been seeing a lot of new faces, so we thought it fitting to introduce ourselves again.
We’re Dana, Kelsey, and Christine, also known as Jade & Joy Events — three close friends who’ve been helping create incredible events over the years before joining forces as (what we call) our “trifold magic”. This picture describes our dynamic perfectly. We laugh together, make memories together, and work seamlessly as one to create celebrations you can imagine, experience, and remember.

Tell us something fun about yourself! ♥️

On August 4th I married my partner in everything. For those who were in attendance they got to hear me thank him for helping me do the heavy lifting that #T1d can sometimes require. He has quite literally saved my life at least 6 times (due to low blood sugar leading to seizures and loss of consciousness) in the 4 years we’ve been together. He is the best #diamister I ever could have asked for. He even got me Reese’s Pieces as part of my wedding day present, which despite all of my careful calculating I desperately needed by the time we ended our night around 3 am. Between my husband (🤗) and my bridesmaids all my Diabetes concerns were covered. #T1d was ever present throughout my day. It is a blessing and sometimes work that I would rather not do, but we still had the most magical wedding day I could have dreamt of! 📸: @terribaskin

It’s a special day when you get to make a cake for the woman’s daughter who helped raise your children. Congratulations “Mon-kah” (Monica) on your big day. Jude’s just as excited as we are... or maybe it’s just the cake scraps 🤔

I’m approaching YEAR 6 of living in the DMV. That makes my head spin!
✨
When I moved here 5 years ago, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. The dream of being a photographer felt like just a dream - there was NO way I could make it a full-time career. I didn’t even know where to start! But after a couple months, I started to put myself out there - mostly because I was desperate to not lead the 9-5 desk job life. It was terrifying. I was so worried about what other people would think, and most of all, I was crippled by my own self-doubt: Will ever be good enough to truly be proud of my work? Will I ever feel confident enough to let people PAY me to do this? What if this is a huge waste of time and money? What if it all fails? 😞
Honestly, those fears were pretty valid. I’m sure there were haters hating. If I didn’t work hard, it would have been a waste of time and money and I would never have improved. It wasn’t until I wanted to be successful MORE than I was afraid of failure or judgment that I had the ability to make it happen. And by the kindness of others believing in me and the grace of God, here I am, five years later, doing a job that I love even more than I ever dreamed!

It wasn’t until I wanted to be successful MORE than I was afraid of failure or judgment that I had the ability to make it happen. And by the kindness of others believing in me and the grace of God, here I am, five years later, doing a job that I love even more than I ever dreamed!

"It was such a pleasure to guest-shoot as a member of the @toadstonemedia team at Mt. Airy Mansion in Maryland on Saturday. M+J are the sweetest couple, and I felt so welcome and so fortunate to get to capture their traditional Kenyan ceremony and so many fun traditions at their reception! This is one of my favorite wedding days all year!" — Aimee

as much as i adore designing custom wedding invitation suites, creating the “day of” paper items is equally as challenging and exciting. these beauties feat. antique gold metallic ink on wedding white cardstock with the faintest hint of shimmer. ✨

Would you believe that there were hundreds of people around us for these photos? It felt like we had the whole gallery to ourselves because Kerry and Kevin were in their own world. I'm wrapping up their wedding this week and I am loving reliving this day.

I'm gonna be honest, it was a hard choice to make between this photo and the outtake photo I have in my Instagram story. I love them both. 
But we've all seen enough kissy photos right? Let me know in the comments if I should've gone with the other 😉

there’s just something about a plain wax seal that i adore. no embellishments, no frills. just an ancient art speaking for itself.

In these series of photos I wanted to focus more on the intimacy of the images. Not literal 'love' intimacy (though it's innately there). But the visual intimacy. Getting to see the love and care placed in the details of the bride and groom by the bride and groom -- though often just by the bride lol

Congratulations again to Ashley + Jella for making it this far!

They say, behind every successful man is a great woman. But I believe every great man relies upon the counsel of an equally great or greater woman.

Erin trusted my judgment with everything from to upping her timeline to where we did all the photos and it was the best thing because it got HOT quick! TOTALLY worth the 8am start time (and dodging cars ) when I have a couple like this. ❤ Congratulations again to Jeff & Erin!! #woodrowwilsonhouse #washingtondc #dcwedding #junewedding #weddingphotography #dcphotographer
I had the opportunity to work w/ this beautiful bride a few weeks ago. Wishing you and your hubby a blissful marriage. See you soon, E! ❤️

The more I explore DC, the more I fall in love with the amazing architecture that seems to be just about everywhere you look.

It doesn't get much better than this beautiful bride and a soft French blue chair, right before saying "I do"
