I met Lisa Groover a little over 2 years ago while working with McEnearney Associates. She is one of the sweetest people I know and I am honored to have worked with her so much over the years! She is a pet-friendly real estate guru, if you need a pet-friendly place to live, she is definitely the agent for you! Here is a bit about Lisa from her website:

Pet Friendly Real Estate Agent Photographer Old Town Alexandria VirginiaPet Friendly Real Estate Agent Photographer Old Town Alexandria VirginiaPet Friendly Real Estate Agent Photographer Old Town Alexandria Virginia

"Whether purchasing condos, townhouses or single-family homes in all price points, her clients range from first time buyers to a couple that moved 17 times! She has discovered that 79% of her business comes from referrals from happy clients, neighbors and friends, and 40% are pet owners!

An active member of the Alexandria community, Lisa chairs the Welcome Committee in her neighborhood, plans events for a local non-profit, organized an electronics recycling event, several clothing drives, a hot sauce collection program, and a number of shopping nights for deserving local charities. As a TWIG, she also supports INOVA Alexandria Hospital.

As a pet friendly real estate professional, Lisa has been featured on “The Pet Show with Dr. Katy”, in the Washington Post and NOVA Dog Magazine as an expert in working with pet owners. In addition, Lisa has been a volunteer dog obedience trainer and worked with several pet therapy groups with her golden retrievers."

I most recently worked with Lisa and her golden retriever Honey for a piece in the Alexandria Gazette (pg 15)

How to Plan Your Wedding Timeline https://www.brittanymariephotography.com/blog/2018/8/how-to-plan-your-wedding-timeline Airlie House Wedding Photography Warrenton VirginiaAirlie House Wedding Warrenton VirginiaAirlie House Wedding Photo Warrenton Virginia

This is the moment you have been waiting for! Your loved one got down on one knee and proposed, then you said "YES", you have now picked a date, a venue, a photographer ;) a DJ...but now what? How do you organize the day? You've never done this before, so where should you start? Let me help guide you through planning your big day so that you get the most out of this joyous occasion! Here is a sample of a traditional wedding day, based on my experience:

 

10AM - Hair and makeup start on-site

12PM - Bride starts hair and makeup

1PM - 2PM - Vendors start arriving

3PM - Bride gets into dress

3:30PM - Bridal party photos

4:30PM - Wedding party arrives at venue

5PM - Ceremony begins

5:45PM - Ceremony ends/Cocktail hour begins

5:45PM - 6:45PM - Family/Bride & Groom Portraits

6:45PM - Guests are seated for dinner

7PM - Grand Entrance

7:15PM - First dances

7:30PM - Dinner is served

8PM - Toasts

8:30PM - Bouquet Toss/Garter Toss/Dance floor opens

9:15PM - Cake Cutting

10PM - Send off

 

This a nice, clean, simple layout that can definitely jump-start your planning process. You can modify this for the time of day that your ceremony starts or even factor in time for things like a "First-Look" shoot during the day. Always keep in mind the time of day that your portraits will be taken. The closer to sunset, the better your photos will turn out. This will of course vary by the time of year you are getting married, but your photographer will be able to help you plan this with you!

Feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments.

Jen + Shawn's Big Day at Top of the Town https://www.brittanymariephotography.com/blog/2018/6/Top-of-the-town-arlington-virginia-wedding-photographer Jen and Shawn are quite a perfect match. Through Shawn's kindheartedness and persistence and Jen's bubbly and infectious attitude the two ended up being a home run!...Did I mention they both love baseball and softball?

I was so excited when they approached me about being their wedding photographer. Their big day took place at one of the most breath-taking venues in Arlington, VA - Top of the Town! The views were absolutely gorgeous. The weather held up long enough for us to get all of the gorgeous shots we needed - and allowed us enough time to get photographs at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C.!

I am so excited to share a few sneak peeks with you now :) Enjoy <3

Meet Jillian Keck | Old Town Alexandria Real Estate Agent https://www.brittanymariephotography.com/blog/2017/4/meet-jillian-keck-old-town-alexandria-real-estate-agent I had the great pleasure of working with a fabulous friend and real estate agent, Jillian Keck. She is hands down one of the kindest, smartest, most hardworking individuals I know. I was so happy to go about Old Town with her and have a fun mini shoot. If you or any one you know is looking to move in Northern Virginia, be sure to reach out to her at JillianKeck.com. Read on to learn more about Jillian and see some of my favorite shots from the day!

Enjoy!

 

 

After spending seven years with a leading Northern Virginia real estate team, Jillian realized that she would better serve her clients as an independent agent. With almost a decade of experience in the industry, and holding the title of Director of Sales & Training, she brings an in-depth knowledge of the vast real estate market and the expectations of clients in the DC area.

 

Raised outside of Richmond, Virginia on a historic plantation, Jillian is a third generation Realtor. Surrounded by family in the industry, she grew up learning the ins and outs of real estate and developed a passion for it early as a child. Jillian attended James Madison University where she graduated with a major in Finance. Utilizing her education, Jillian was able to merge her knowledge of financial real estate, with her passion for the industry and developed a skill for assisting her clients in making confident decisions for their desired lifestyle.

Having lived around the metro area in both Virginia (Arlington & Alexandria) and the District (Burleith & Bloomingdale) she has received great insight into a range of communities available to her clients, as well as highlights to share with those touring her listings.  Along with her passion for hard work and travel, she lends her time to volunteering on the hematology/oncology department of Children’s National Hospital as a patient care volunteer.

 

Jillian is energetic, knowledgeable, and a strong negotiator.  She uses both her valuable experiences as a top agent in the industry and relationships with fellow colleagues to help her clients achieve their goals.  Jillian values your time as a client, and as a friend. She will make herself available to you after a transaction is complete, because to her, your time goes beyond the sale. Jillian aims to provide a style of service that brings her clients confidence and comfort while making their greatest investments.

Another Year with the Hristov's! | Family Photo Session https://www.brittanymariephotography.com/blog/2017/4/another-year-with-the-hristovs-family-photo-session I had the pleasure of shooting with this lovely family again this month!

It was so fun to see how much the children have grown - and to meet the new addition to the family!

We shot at the same location - Meridian Park in DC - and everything was just as perfect as last time.

Here are a few shots from our session.

Our President's Day Trip to New York! https://www.brittanymariephotography.com/blog/2017/2/our-presidents-day-trip-to-new-york It's always wonderful to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life...even if it is only for a "long" weekend.

Thankfully, John's parents live right up 95 in upstate New York, so we loaded the car with Peanut and made the 7-ish hour road trip to see "Joe Joe and Lo Lo".

Peanut got to play in the snow and even build a snow man!

Never forget to cherish the little moments in life <3

Here are some photos from one of our snow days :)

New Year and Updates! https://www.brittanymariephotography.com/blog/2017/1/new-year-and-updates It has been quite some time hasn't it?

Having babies and moving along with life can be quite time consuming! But alas, everything works out in the end and it brings us to a new year!

We are here and ready for a fresh wedding season. As for what's been occupying my time recently? Well that's easy between a 2 year old and a wonderful partner.

I have moved to Arlington, Virginia and I absolutely love it. My partner John is wonderful and loving and supportive, and Mark (referred to as Peanut) has been sprouting like a weed! 

Here are a few photos I have chosen to sum up last year :)

Meet Kirsten of Kirsten Marie Design https://www.brittanymariephotography.com/blog/2015/2/meet-kirsten-of-kirsten-marie-design Hello everyone! I hope you all are making it through all of the crazy snow OK. 

To take your mind off of shoveling and laying down salt, I would like to take a moment to introduce you to Kirsten Eike, owner of Kirsten Marie Design. 

I met Kirsten about 4 years ago while she was working at a salon. She gave me the best haircut I had ever had in my life.

She has since gone on to start her own bridal hair company and she is amazing. If you are looking for great hair on your big day, I recommend checking her out!

Here is an excerpt about Kirsten from her site:

"Kirsten has worked in several salons after graduating from the Aveda Institute in DC in 2008. In the past few years, she has started her own business as an independent contractor. She has worked with many brides and their bridal parties in providing gorgeous hair styles for that special day. She recently started collaborating with local photographers, makeup artists, and models; creating beautiful photo shoots that reflect the look and talent of each artist involved. Styling hair is one of her creative passions, and she is always looking for ways to express it."

We have collaborated on several occasions and  when we had a break in the weather, we met up in Herndon to take some photos. Not only does she do great hair, but she is tall, gorgeous, and stylish to boot!

Everyone - meet Kirsten :)

Meet Olivia + Jonathan https://www.brittanymariephotography.com/blog/2015/2/meet-olivia-jonathan-virginia-engagement-photographer Meet Olivia + Jonathan

I first met Olivia 2 years ago working my second job. We clicked instantly. She was funny, witty, and down-to-earth (my kind of girl!)

Jonathan also worked with us. He is energetic, full of life, and has a great sense of humor.

I was so happy when these two got together.

They are a perfect balance for each other.

I was so happy to be able to spend the afternoon with these two love birds last week.

Below are some of my favorite shots from their Mini Couples Photo Session!

(which you can find more about here!)

Easter Mini Sessions https://www.brittanymariephotography.com/blog/2015/2/easter-mini-sessions-virginia-family-photographer Easter Mini Sessions are now being offered!

Woo hoo! I am so excited to offer these this year. As I slowly make the transition to Momtographer, I find myself becoming more and more creative with the supplies I have on hand - plus I have such a cute subject to test my ideas out on!

So this past weekend, I worked super hard, and with the help of my wonderful husband, we created Easter sets!

There are 8 different background combinations to choose from, as well as several cute prop options.

I thought, since it is so cold here in Northern Virginia, that it would make sense to hold these mini sessions in my humble abode! No one wants to trek outside with these wind chills. 

So, skip the terrifying mall bunny-man, and come hang out with me and my awesome baby, and get some great, affordable Easter photos!

Here is what you can look forward to:

Welcome to the World Little Mark https://www.brittanymariephotography.com/blog/2015/2/welcome-to-the-world-little-mark 09-08-2014
Arguably, the most momentous day of my life.
On September 8th, 2014, I welcomed into this world my first born son, Mark Carter Evers, III!
Looking back, I can't even begin to describe the myriad of emotions I experienced leading up to that day.  I'd spent the previous 9 months before he came on a roller coaster of excitement, fear, wonder, anxiety, and impatience.
 
What would he look like?
What will he grow up to be?
Will he have my eyes?
Will he always know just how much I love him?
How many diapers will we go through?!
 
The questions and unknowns were endless.
 
Before I knew it, that magical day came and I was FINALLY able to meet the tiny human I had spent so long nurturing. Oh wow was I nervous!  All the way to hospital I was praying for an easy labor and a healthy baby.
 
After a few hours and a seemingly uneventful labor and birth, the doctor told us that we were lucky he was here...that someone, somewhere was looking out for him.  Little Mark was born with a "true knot" in his umbilical cord that had been cutting off his oxygen supply.  If I hadn't have gone into labor that day...I don't even like to think about that.  I'm just thankful that my little man persevered, and that we were able to bring home our tiny miracle.
 
It's indescribable, the amount of love one can possess for someone they have never met before.  A mother's love.  I'd heard of it before, but now I know.  Nothing could ever be more precious to me than this sweet child of mine.  Guns and Roses reference completely intended :)
 
Thank you for listening to my story!
I'd like to introduce you all to my son, Little Mark aka Bean aka Tinselman (the name given to him by me in my sisters dream the day of his arrival).

Heather + Bradd's Florida Wedding https://www.brittanymariephotography.com/blog/2015/2/heather-bradds-wedding-virginia-photographer Hello everyone!!  I'm so excited to share this blog with you guys!  You may have seen on my last blog that my sister got married recently.  She's my only sister and I can't even begin to tell you how ecstatic I was to learn my little baby sister was getting married!
 
She and her husband, Bradd, are perfect for each other.  They're so great together, you can really tell when you're around the two - so in love!
 
Now, imagine my shock, surprise, and excitement when my sister called me up and said to me, "So...how exactly are you going to manage to be my bridesmaid AND photograph my wedding?"
YIKES!
That was a big deal. 
My sister is not a fancy, spotlight-loving, all-eyes-on-me kinda gal, but she had faith that we would be able to work out something magical. 
And we did!!
With the help of my little brother (who also just got engaged - check it out here), we were successfully able to participate in AND capture my little sister's Big Day.
 
Here are some of our favorite images:

Joey + Naomi are Engaged! https://www.brittanymariephotography.com/blog/2015/2/joey-naomi-are-engaged-virginia-engagement-photographer Hi everyone!
 
While it has seemed quiet here at Brittany Marie Photography, there have been a lot of personal events happening the past six months!
 

I gave birth to my beautiful son, Mark the 3rd...

Meghan got married...

My baby sister got married...

And my baby brother enlisted in the army, graduated from basic, and got engaged...

 

I think that sometimes when all of these major life events are occurring around us it’s often hard to find a moment to just sit and reflect. To really take the time to process and appreciate the experiences we've been through.

 

As I get older (even at the sprite young age of 26!) these milestones, and many more, have made me realize how easy it can be to fall into a rut and take some things for granted.  My personal New Year's resolution for 2015 is to slow down, to savor every moment, and to try to have more fun!

So as I leave you with some of my favorite images from my baby brother's mini engagement shoot, I want to urge you all to take a moment...reflect on some of your major life events from the last year and renew your appreciation for all those in your life.

 

And don't forget to always have fun!

Woo hoo! I hope you are as excited as I am about Part 2 of my 5 Part blog series! You can find Part 1 here.

Today I am showcasing the beautiful Emma (and her handsome husband Nate!)

They have been married for 5 years, and did not have any wedding photos taken. I was so happy they were some of our models at Belvedere Plantation so we could get them some awesome wedding shots that they deserved! They were so much fun (as you can see, we did a lot of laughing in some of the shots!)

I am SO, SO, SO (yes 3 SO's) excited to share with you Part 1 of 5 of an awesome experience I had last Sunday! I took part in a stylized photo shoot at Belvedere Plantation in Fredericksburg, VA!

I got to work with several models and vendors and I couldn't be more thrilled!

I hung out with amazing people for 5 hours AND I got to take pictures! Perfect day, seriously.

Below are some of my favorite photos from the first model, Giovanna.

Enjoy!
