A&S Photography Wedding & portrait photographers helping the DMV capture special moments in your life – especially the candid ones – to look back on for years to come.
(10)

Just like there are so many different personalities in the world, there are many different ways to capture them. Our goal is to create a wedding day experience that shows off who you really are. While we are based in Northern Virginia, nowhere in the world is out of the question! Whether you're looking at one of the incredible venues here in the DMV, or have your heart set on a destination wedding, we'd love to chat so we can put together a collection as special as you are.

CHEERS. Did you know NYE was actually a full on holiday?

That’s right-it’s National Champagne Day!

There’s less than one day left of 2019 and we're feeling excited because we know 2020 is OUR year. In the past 12 months, we jumped back into photography full force, changed our name, and booked a ton of new sessions! In 2020, we want to keep that momentum going!
✨ ✨
How are YOU feeling this New Year’s Eve?

Are you the resolution-making type? I have definitely been known to shy away from the tradition in the past. This year Sean and I are both leaning into January 1 as a motivating fresh start!! We are dreaming big and resolving to push our photography business to the next level! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You heard it here first, friends! And now we have a whole community to keep us accountable and cheer us on! What’s your resolution? We want to cheer you on too!

We are Sean and Amanda, photographers who love capturing those special moments in your life. When we aren't busy chilling with our clients, most weekends you’ll find me (Amanda) watching Gilmore Girls and playing World of Warcraft, while Sean goes more for the zombie apocalypse type flicks.

We'd LOVE to connect with you, so leave a comment and let me know what you like to do with your free time!

Have you been naughty or nice this year?! I think I know the answer, but either way, we all deserve to open gifts! Me, I’m wishing for a mini photo printer. I hope I was “nice” enough to get it!

What is on your wish list this year?

Tough day? We've all been there...and we've all managed to find a way out. Sometimes all you need is a single voice in your ear cheering you on. Consider this my cyber-whisper. See you on the other side!

Amidst all the reasons we have to be joyful, many of us really struggle this time of year. Maybe ‘going home’ is simply painful. Maybe it’s your first Christmas without a loved one. Maybe it's your tenth Christmas without a loved one, and the pain just isn't getting any easier. Maybe you're struggling a little harder to make ends meet. I can certainly relate.
💖
But while we all grieve at times—we can all help, too. This year, I’m being extra mindful of friends who feel at their loneliest around the holidays and doing my best to make sure they remember they are loved.
💖
How do you give a little extra this time of year?

For this Friday Introduction, I'm bringing two of my favorite things together - Christmas and photography!! I snapped this reflection of myself in the holiday decor on Rodeo Drive in LA last month, and it couldn't be more fitting.

Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year! I love the lights, the coziness, the music, giving gifts, family.. ALL of it!

Now that you know that about me, tell me a little about yourself -- what's your favorite part of the holidays?

Who's down for some fun and games?! We're in the DMV and around here it hasn't properly snowed in well over a year. (We ARE looking at some lovely freezing rain tomorrow morning, however)
🥶
But wherever you are today, I have a question: If this weekend you found yourself entirely snowed in, how would you pass the time? I’d most likely snuggle my kitties and alternate re-binging Gilmore Girls and playing Kingdom Hearts 3. Or maybe I can find a way to do all three at once....
🤔
Now you! Tell me everything! What would YOU do?!

If you saw our Instagram stories, you know we spent the morning in Alexandria with this wonderful couple. We were able to capture the moment they became engaged, back in August, and today was the perfect day for engagement photos. Everything was so insanely beautiful, we couldn't wait to get back and edit! Here's a sneak peek from Wilkes Tunnel!!

If you've never been, Old Town has SO many amazing places to take photos, it's an absolutely incredible place to be a photographer, lol. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

GUYS! It's National Cat Day!!! Anyone who knows me, knows how crazy I am about my furry little babies. Toby (pictured), especially, lol. Snickers is my other cat, he's like my crabby little old man. He's pushing 10, and lets me know it all the time. Toby just turned 3 ... and lets me know THAT all the time, too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Earlier this week, we said to watch out for some exciting news.. well here it is!! We are changing our name to A&S Photography!! Sean and I are both really excited about this, it's something we've been discussing for awhile, and we finally found the right fit!

Over the next few days, you'll see all of our web presence change over, and behind the scenes, we will be migrating our email. I'll post more about that in our blog section (like to that always in the profile), but for now, let's celebrate!!

So it's been an exceptionally long time since we've blogged... but I've taken care of that tonight!! A couple posts are waiting in the wings, and tonight I hit publish on a post that's been hanging around for far too long... BUT, I needed to share the beautiful love between Megan and Jarred, of Megan Crawford Photography.

Happy Saturday everyone! It's been almost two months, but my time in New Orleans with AKP Retreat has made it to the blog!! It's sort of going to be a two-part blog, with this piece being about the retreat itself (and showing off my flat lay skills), and the next one being about the anniversary shoot we did while down there!
