Rust Manor House
There’s no way to put into words how beautiful Saturday’s wedding was! Madeline & Elliot were married at the gorgeous Rust Manor House in Leesburg, VA. All week long Saturday’s forecast showed a 100% chance of rain ALL.DAY.LONG. When I woke up Saturday morning it was pouring and I felt so bad for Madeline & Elliot. I knew they didn’t want to get married in the tent and I know everyone was hoping for some kind of miracle. Well, the rain stopped at 3:30 – about an hour before the ceremony!! It was amazing. I almost cried along with Madeline as she shed tears of joy that their ceremony could be outside! Joy Charles, of Joy and Co. Events, and her team worked tirelessly to set up the incredible ceremony decor! Everything went off without a hitch and I couldn’t have been happier for Madeline & Elliot. I couldn’t think of a more deserving couple!!
The rest of the evening was spent dancing to the sounds of an amazing live band! Guests sipped on Moscow Mules and hit up the s’more and cigar bar! The prohibition theme set the perfect vibe as Madeline & Elliot celebrated their first few hours as husband and wife!
To the newlyweds: Thank you so much for trusting me to capture your day! I had an incredible time at your wedding. I hope you’re enjoying the sites and sands of the Mediterranean – and that you love the preview of your images below!

This weekend Casey & Matt were married in Leesburg, VA at Rust Manor! It was absolutely perfect! I couldn’t help but think the setting was straight out of a fairytale. . .
Casey & Matt were married in the gardens of the Manor House surrounded by their closest friends and family. Spring was in full bloom and they couldn’t have asked for better weather! The sun was shining and served to highlight the joy they experienced as they said their vows!
Following the ceremony guests were treated to an amazing reception in the tent! The decor was stunning!! Crystal candelabras, gorgeous flower arrangements and beautiful cupcakes served as a backdrop to one rocking party! Casey & Matt were out on the dance floor all night having a ball and celebrating the first day of the rest of their lives!
I’m so thrilled to share a glimpse of their gorgeous day on the blog today, and so thankful to Casey & Matt for inviting me to be a part of it all in person!

This weekend was incredibly busy! It started on Friday evening when I met Lisa & Ian in D.C. for their engagement shoot! We had a wonderful time exploring Eastern Market and their neighborhood.
On Saturday I photographed Madeline & Elliot’s wedding at Rust Manor House! I can’t begin to describe how incredible it was. The rain miraculously stopped just before the ceremony and everything went according to plan! I couldn’t be happier for these beautiful newlyweds! MUCH more from this wedding coming on Wednesday.
On Sunday evening I photographed Teresa & Daniel’s maternity shoot. I had so much fun! It was the perfect way to end the weekend. Isn’t Teresa stunning?!
Needless to say, I have been working really hard in the office today to catch up! So far so good and I can’t wait to share more from these shoots on the blog this week.
These three words are my approach to photography. I strive for my work to possess all three qualities.
Timeless – Your collection should stand the test of time. I want you to look back at your images five, ten, twenty years from now and still love them as much as you did the first time you saw them.
Touching – Your images should evoke emotion and take you back to the moment they were captured.
True – Your images should represent YOU! They should be true to who you were at the time they were taken.
I hold myself accountable to these three standards and always shoot with them in mind.
All collections include: Eight hours of wedding day coverage by Beth T, hundreds of edited high-resolution images delivered digitally through a customized online gallery and a complimentary engagement session.
Please contact me for detailed pricing information.
Sessions begin at $350 and include edited high-resolution images.

Where do you typically shoot?
I like working with my clients to come up with the perfect location. The ultimate decision is made by the client – I merely serve as a reference!
When do you typically shoot?
As I prefer shooting outdoors in natural light, sessions are held either in the morning or evening. Typically 2 hours after sunrise or 2 hours before sunset.
What should I wear?
In my experience, there is not a particular color or pattern that photographs better/worse than another. So, I always tell clients to wear something that is true to who they are. If you wear sneakers more than heels, take that into consideration. You want your photos to be true to you – and outfit choice plays a critical role.
How long before I get to see my photos?
I will post a blog sneak peek within a few days of your shoot or event.
For Weddings, you can expect your gallery of images 4 weeks from your wedding date – the perfect one month anniversary present!
For Senior & Portrait sessions, you can expect your gallery of images within 2 weeks time.
What products do you offer?
I offer a variety of products for you to choose from including: Leather Flush-mount Albums, Guest Books, Canvas Wall Art, custom designed Thank You cards, Save-the-Dates, Graduation Announcements, and much more.
