My name is Rachel and I’m a wife to Brandon and a mother to two feisty terriers, Malcolm and Ollie. During the week, I work at a nonprofit in DC, and on the weekends you’ll find me photographing engagements and weddings in the Northern Virginia area. I’m originally from Iowa but moved to DC after college, and am excited to be back in this wonderful area, putting down roots. Our next big project? Building our dream house from the ground up. Yes, we’re moving again…
I started this blog in 2012 after leaving DC and moving abroad to Aberdeen, Scotland for my husband’s job. It was a wonderful way to document our time as expats and to keep friends and family up-to-date while we traveled around the globe and navigated life as a newlywed couple. I continued to do so when we returned to the States, and because of a corporate rotation, we spent six months in Arizona, six months in sunny Florida, and six months in Boston, Massachusetts.
We like sharing photos of our dogs, farmer’s markets, historic buildings, and anything else that’s cool in the DMV area.
