COLOR. It's one of my absolute favorite things!! I love that summer and fall weddings tend to trend toward bolder colors - burnt oranges and rich purples are some of my favorites (shocker: they were my wedding colors!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What wedding palette is your favorite?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This styled shoot was so much fun because we got to celebrate all things purple in our Violet Vision shoot, published on @cakeandlace_

SO thrilled to share that I am back in business!! Did you miss a spring session with the shutdown? I'd love to get you on my calendar! Please shoot me an email or message here to book your summer or fall session - I have a feeling it's going to be a busy second half of 2020!

And if you're feeling so inclined, it would mean the world to me if you "share" this post on your feed! It goes without saying the past two months of no work hit us pretty hard, as for all my fellow small businesses. I am ready and willing to hustle and work my tail off to make up some of it in the coming months!

Sarah + Tyler | Icelandic Wedding Session — Lock & Company

GUYS IT TOOK A PANDEMIC BUT I BLOGGED 😂

Where to begin… ever since I first traveled to Iceland, I (like every other photographer in the world) fell in LOVE. Like, cannot stop thinking about it, saving every penny to go back, don’t ever want to leave LOVE with that country. So of course, my number one goal in life became to photograph ...

When Posh Seven pitched the idea of highlighting some of the best wedding venues in the area, I jumped at the chance to share some of the images I've taken from my amazing couples over the years! Take a peek - you might see someone you recognize!!
And yes, that is my husband posing with another woman, don't worry about it 😂

The sweetest, kindest and most encouraging email from a client:
"These photos are incredible! I don't think I could put into words just how perfect these photos are. Thank you so much for your flexibility ... It's always a pleasure working with you! ... I hope this all blows over soon so you can get back to capturing special moments for others! You are, and will forever be the Smith's favorite photographer."

This will go down as my last shoot before Corona caused the shutdown, but if I had to stop after one - I guess this was a good one to pick! The world might feel like it's coming to an end but their story is just beginning

I, like many other artists, am suddenly finding myself with a very clear schedule. I am incredibly fortunate that we are doing ok, even with all my shoots cancelled for the foreseeable future. So I am taking the time to stay active (yay for a new makeshift home gym!), work on all those little tasks I never seem to get done both in my office and around the house, and revisit old galleries... like this beautiful wedding from several years ago! Something about Kat and Tim's wedding is still just so fresh and lovely, it's exactly what I need to keep calm and carry on during this stressful time!

From her invitations to her earrings to her attendants - emerald and evergreen were the perfect color for Danielle's winter wedding at Raspberry Plain Manor! I love when brides choose jewel tones for their wedding palette - bold and bright colors make this photographer's heart happy! #thelockandco #raspberryplainmanor #northernvirginia #loudouncountyphotographer #northernvirginiaphotographer #loudouncounty #novaweddingphotographer #novaweddings #visitloudoun #loudounphotographer #bride #bridesmaids #greenwithenvy

Styled shoots are so much fun for me - I get to really play and stretch my creativity without the same stress of a wedding day or fear of missing a moment! This one was bursting with color and energy - I can't thank the other amazing vendors enough for getting us published on @love_and_lavender_ last year!

One of my FAVORITE parts of this time of year is getting mail from clients who use my work on their holiday cards!! I hang them in my office each year and it truly brightens my day to be reminded all the wonderful families I've worked with over the season ♥️ if you need my address, just shoot me a message!!!

What are your New Year's Eve plans? We will be getting a group together and playing this 1920's themed murder mystery party!! Who killed Louie Hutch outside the speakeasy? I hope we can get to the bottom of the case!
May your remaining weeks of 2019 be as glittery as Gatsby - and cheers to the roaring 2020's!

On today, Small Business Saturday, I want to thank all of my clients from the bottom of my heart. Each person who trusts me to photograph their wedding, performance, product, engagement, maternity, headshot, family session or event means I am able to not only do what I love but also helps me pay my mortgage and put food on my table 😁
I am grateful beyond all belief for 2019's photography adventures with all of you and a husband who is supportive in every way possible! I can't wait to finish the year strong and see what 2020 brings!

Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay.

GUYS when I saw the final product from the promos I shot for Spring Awakening - I scream/cried and just couldn't believe how AMAZING they look! I could not be more proud of being a part of this company, and I'm so thankful to get to collaborate and create work with my amazing fellow artists!! Mad thanks to Drama Queen Graphics and OVATIONS THEATRE for making my month with these rad posters!! Can't wait to hang one in my office!!

When students are being threatened and punished for speaking out for what is right, OVATIONS takes seriously the responsibility to provide a safe place where young people can hone their voice and actually be heard. We endeavor to help young people fight for what they believe in and end hatred through love. Exploring ideas of identity, community, sexual awakening and more, SPRING AWAKENING remains relevant as ever, as it examines what it means to be a young person in a changing world.

“Something was withheld . . . We found it was ourselves.”
― Robert Frost

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I have ONE date available for a full session and only a couple spots left for mini sessions in the month of October (and only a small selection of dates available in November)! I am so thankful for all of my clients, who let me make a living doing what I love. It's taken years of hard work to build my business to this point but it feels pretty darn amazing to be a fully booked photographer! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On that note, if you were wanting to book a session with me- don't delay!! Now is the perfect time to get updated photos for holiday cards! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A Fillmore Silver Spring Wedding Filled With Special Performances

Honestly... Just have to pinch myself a little to make sure this is real. I just got published on Washingtonian's site, and I frankly feel a little numb.
I'm not a huge name in the industry- there are so many photographers out there to whom this might be just an standard occurance, but I feel like I was just given the most wonderful gift in the world.
I knew this wedding was special, and I'm so glad the editors at Washingtonian agreed. Sarah and Tyler's wedding is one I will always remember, and I couldn't be more thrilled that theirs is the one that got me my first big publication credit!!

This Fillmore Silver Spring wedding features a flash mob and a couple's duet. Check Sarah and Tyler's full wedding to see more of their spectacular day.

If you love the music of the 60's, don't miss this fantastic production!! Loved shooting the color and energy of the show!!

The buzz about BEEHIVE: THE 60's MUSICAL:

“It’s Vegas spectacle right here in Herndon!”

“It took me back to the fun I had in the 60's! All the singers had wonderful voices!”

“DYNAMITE! Your gals are SO talented, from superb singing and dancing to personality! Seldom have we seen such a superb singing show--and we go to DC quite a bit!”

“NextStop is an outstanding value!”

Only a few more weekends to catch the show, get your tickets today!! www.nextstoptheatre.org/shows/beehive/

Most of the time Lauren's adorable son Sam is in front of my camera, but recently, Lauren decided she needed new performance headshots for her website! She is such a talented violinist and violist, I have had the pleasuring of playing alongside her and can't recommend her highly enough if you need a teacher or a performer for your wedding or event! #thelockandco #musician #headshot #violin #viola #northernvirginia #loudouncountyphotographer #northernvirginiaphotographer #loudouncounty

@nohlsen - seeing you win second place almost brought tears to my eyes. Year after year, I have watched you fight and work and push. This year, you EARNED your place on the podium, and my only regret is I'm not there to see you step up for your medal. Stay happy, but hungry, and you better believe when you become the fittest on earth, I will be there cheering you on. #thelockandco #crossfit #crossfitgames2019 #crossfitgames #noahohlsen #fittestonearth #madison #onwardandupward #paytheman #rogue #reebok #fitness

I absolutely love the journey from maternity, to newborn to first birthday with my families! Benson turned one on the 4th of July, and I was absolutely to get to capture this milestone (and all his others!) for his wonderful parents.

Even back when I was studying theatre, I was never a great dancer... I was "an actor who moved well" 😂 Maybe that's why I'm so fascinated by dancers - the blend of strength and grace is one of my favorite things to capture when I have the time to work on a personal project. Photographing Margaret was such a pleasure - I love coming together with fellow artists to make some magic and share our talents! #thelockandco #northernvirginia #loudouncountyphotographer #northernvirginiaphotographer #loudouncounty #ballet #dance #ballerina #dancephotography #point #tutu
