I specialize in capturing classic weddings, fun family photo sessions, celebratory B'nai Mitzvah, and influential events for political candidates and companies.
Born in Peru, and now based in Washington, D.C., I love traveling and dining at every oyster bar along the way. I can’t wait to team up with you and capture your personal piece of history.

More and more, couples are deciding to really make their wedding day reflective of who they are. These three couples mixed it up between tradition and contemporary. Let me share a few things about their wedding:
Ann Marie & Denis
Ann Marie & Denis decided to get married at their home church with close family in attendance. Two weeks later, they celebrated with friends at the Cambridge Yacht Club. During their reception, guests enjoyed an extended cocktail hour, followed by speeches, and (a very delicious) dinner. Then, they hosted an after-party at 477 Venue. It was very relaxed, upscale, and fun! They had an oyster bar, dessert station, and dancing. Guests didn’t have to worry about a single thing throughout the evening, and neither did Ann Marie & Denis. To add to the uniqueness of their day: Ann Marie wore a two piece attire with beaded pearl details, and she looked fabulous!
Sarah & David
Sarah & David had an early afternoon ceremony at historic Gunston Hall. Their venue was quiet and serene. Their reception included a wide spread of heavy appetizers with a mixture of tall and low tables for guests to mingle. They had fun law games and the little ones got to play with bubbles! Their wedding allowed guests to really feel comfortable because it was fairly open-ended. My favorite part was when Sarah & David sabered champagne and cut their cakes. Side note: that was one of the best wedding cake I’ve ever had! Sarah’s sister and (now) step-mother-in law made it!
Ary & Nissim
Ary & Nissim had also been together for a few years before tying the knot. They got ready at their home and had an intimate 20-person ceremony at Strathmore Mansion. Ary really took it to the next level with her dress: she wore blue! To top it off, Nissim chose a rose-gold ring set for the two of them. After their ceremony, they celebrated with a private dinner for their guests.
Hope this gives you some ideas if you’re planning a non-traditional wedding or a traditional wedding with a twist!
