Old Town Alexandria Anniversary Photos | VA Anniversary Photographer

Would you look at these two cuties?! I met Chris + Meredith at Meredith’s brother’s wedding in 2019. Chris was the videographer and we got to capture their beautiful day together. I was over the moon when Chris messaged me about surprising Meredith with a session. Needless to say, Meredith was THRILLED over the surprise! Their Old Town Alexandria anniversary photos truly are some of my favorite images of all time.

Meredith ran over to me and gave me the biggest, friendliest hug when I walked in the door. I have truly loved getting to know the Layfield family over the years and photographing all the occasions. These two call Old Town Alexandria home, along with their two cute pugs. We began at their adorable apartment and I got to snuggle Frank and Phyllis, who are just as sweet as they look! I felt bad leaving those cute faces behind, but we were off to trek around Old Town! I have never been before, but I always dreamed of going to see the sights and history. Thankfully, I have the best travel guides out there!

There’s not a single spot in Old Town Alexandria that isn’t full of charm. I loved the cobblestone streets, the old architecture, and all the history tucked away throughout the city. Not to mention, soooo many coffee shops and cute places to shop! It’s truly a beautiful city and I can see why Meredith + Chris love it so much. We spent the entire afternoon well into the evening just exploring, laughing, and soaking up all the city has to offer. I truly adore these two and their marriage. They are the perfect fit for one another, and it warms my heart to see. Enjoy some favorites!!

Rebecca somehow made us both relaxed and produced absolute magic! She instructed us while still making the photos look candid, reliably captured our "good sides," and brought her unique eye for lighting and settings (pro tip: do whatever she says even if it seems funny or in a different location; it will look utterly amazing). Photos can be an investment and I'm glad we did the research and found the perfect photographer for us.

"The best (esp if you're awkward in photos)"

- Lauren + Hunter

I can't even put into words how amazing Rebecca is. We knew from the moment our engagement photos began that we made the right choice. She is so professional, charismatic, and excited to be a part of your big day.  I would recommend her over and over again!

"Speechless."

- Bianca + Kyle

Rebecca was such a joy to work with, our experience with her was absolute perfection from beginning to end! Even from our first conversation, I could tell that she genuinely cares about getting to know her clients and what they prioritize and want to capture on the big day. She was always so responsive and available by phone or email, communication was a total breeze. Rebecca is not only incredibly talented, but a wonderful human being, and we loved working with her. I wholeheartedly recommend her to all future brides!

"Rebecca was a dream!"

It was truly a pleasure working with Rebecca. She is so sweet and easy to work with, we felt so relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire process. Communication is timely, prices are reasonable. She listened to us and did such a perfect job capturing every moment on our special day. And most importantly - the pictures turned out ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!! I can't recommend her enough.

"Love love love Rebecca!"
