Classically trained in darkrooms and later in digital photography, I choose positions in public policy-- working on the Hill and later as a lobbyist. I sought a "real job" ... at least during the day.
After photographing weddings professional for two years, I struck out on my own. I am now a woman-owned small business federal contractor providing social media consulting and a fine art photographer.
Do you what you love. Do it so well and with such passion that it becomes who you are, what you do, and how you make a difference in the world.

Eddie is absolutely amazing! She was completely organized, and made it so easy to work with her. She also takes amazing pictures, which we knew going into the wedding since she includes an engagement shoot to get to know her. I thought that was really helpful, so we would be confident and comfortable with her on the day of.Sent on 06/05/2018

Eddie and her team are AMAZING! Eddie first blew us away during our first phone call with her- she was warm, informative, and prepared- she knew the exact time the sun would set on our wedding day to help sketch out the timeline. She was very responsive and helpful throughout the months leading up to the big day. With rain in the forecast, we were nervous we wouldn't be able to have the ceremony outdoors or take any pictures outside at our beautiful venue. We had asked Eddie if she could come a little early to take pictures in case the weather was clearer in the morning. Without a hesitation- Eddie was more than happy to accommodate our request and it meant so much to us that she was willing to go above and beyond to help ensure we got the best pictures possible with the impending bad weather. Luckily the rain held off most of the day, and you can see she captured some amazing shots! We'd recommend any couple choose Eddie as their photographer!!Sent on 07/26/2018

Eddie was my favorite person that I worked with for my wedding in October! I found her at the Fairfax wedding show and I never looked back- I interviewed several photographers but none of their work spoke to me like hers. I literally caught my breath and was frozen just staring at her photos- she makes everyone she photographs look like they are models and she captures every detail without prompting. She did both our engagement photos and our wedding photos and I am so happy that we chose her- her work still takes my breath away! She easily rounded up all of my guests for our group photo (150 in one shot!) and kept everyone on track with her timeline and portrait list. She met with us several times before our wedding day to ensure she caught all our "special moments" and "must haves" on film. Oh did I mention she shoots in both film AND digital? The film shots are so romantic while the digitals capture all the details like my flowers with precision. She easily blended in during cocktail hour and captured so many journalistic shots and candids of my friends and family. Meanwhile, she got my husband to relax and smile naturally- she has several tricks to make sure all of your shots are flattering. I'm going to use her for every event from now on- thank goodness she does family portraits and maternity sessions! She is so great- you have to find out for yourself!!!!Sent on 12/06/2017
