Oh my goodness, Ashleigh + Casey are insanely adorable!
Since we had never met before, I explained a little to them before we started my methods of shooting. They immediately seemed to relax and ended up smiling and laughing so much which made me geek out which then made them laugh even more! It was perfect πŸ–€

Casey surprised Ashley for their 3 year wedding anniversary and I thought that was such a great idea! I'd love to capture more anniversaries so if you have one coming up let's chat!

It has been a very long time coming but I am excited to officially announce that RA Images is now Raquel Arnold Photography!

As my life has evolved in my role as a wife and now mother, it has made an impact on my perspective of my photography business and my perspective on capturing moments with couples and families.

Lifestyle sessions are now available for couples and families which includes a few new packages! Event coverage will no longer be offered as Raquel Arnold Photography is dedicating itself to couples and families.

The website will be going through updates but in the meantime, make sure to keep an eye out for upcoming blogs and special announcements!

I would really like to thank all of the amazing people who have supported my passion these last several years. To all of my clients, past and present, to all my family, friends and supporters out there, you are the fuel to my fire! The time I get to spend with so many people fills my heart with so much joy and there is no other "job" I'd rather be doing!

That first kiss as man and wife.

Happiness just seems to beam from these two and I just love the way Allie + John held each other so close. They waited a long time for this moment and it was just as perfect as they are together!

This fresh table set up has my imagination going crazy!
I really can't wait until we move into our new home where my visual mind can really express myself and us as a family.
While I love the soft pink tones of this design I think what would fit our family would be neutral tones with highlights of bright colors and lots and lots of plants. My mom always had the house full of plants and I can't wait to add them to our future home!
What kinds of things do you like to do to decorate your home? I'm always looking for inspiration!

If you had a chance to see my #instastory earlier, you'll see that I got to visit one my favorite families!
β€’
We met about two years ago through a mutual friend and since then, The Rossi's have always been welcoming, generously thoughtful and just some of the funnest people around. β€’
They have a wall that shows their journey together and having some of the images we captured together mixed in there is such a heartwarming feeling! β€’
I loved seeing that their collection of printed photos has grown so much that they started a new wall! This is one of my favorites from their session with their second beautiful baby and they have this one framed! Forever grateful to the Rossi's and the friendship we have built over the years. I am one lucky woman πŸ–€ β€’

It's been quite some time since I've done a #fridayintroductions!

Since I don't share too many personal things on here I thought I'd share some random and not so random things about myself. β€’

This is my pride and joy, Luna Ann Arnold with my amazing husband, Billy. She will be turning one next Saturday and I have already cried about it. Several times. #newbiemom β€’
πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡» I was born in Northern VA but both my parents are Salvadorian. It's been many years since I've been there but it was always one my favorite trips to take. I love the culture, the food! I'm very proud of my Latin roots! β€’

My family and I just relocated to Haymarket from Loudoun Co. and are really enjoying the more scenic part of Northern VA. I love all the trees!

Doors...I have a thing for them. I have no idea when this started but I've been working on a collection of them for some time. I admit though that since I've had Luna, I haven't done that so much. I need to start posting some of them on here! Would you like to see any? I have so many random fun images on my personal account @rock_el19 β€’

I've been wanting to dive more into my creative side so I've been getting some things to reignite the flame. I love to crotchet and I want to paint and already have several ideas! What kinds of interests do you have?

Feeling so lucky to have this portrait shared on two very awesome and popular Instagram accounts! Kleinfeld Bridal and @dailybridedress have shared this over the last few days and it's an exciting feeling πŸ–€

This has definitely been one of my most popular portraits from this year. It was a team effort and for it having been only my second night portrait ever, I'm very happy with the way it all turned out. But my favorite part of it all is how happy Jason and Melissa were on their wedding day. Especially Melissa as she got the snow filled wedding of her dreams!
I'm so lucky I got to be the one to capture it all!

I started off by taking pictures of just the flowers and then Luna started to walk over and at first I literally said "noooo". Then immediately I realized what a dummy I am and to let her play.

So glad I did. Not only are these so cute, she's so cute but she had so much fun πŸ–€

I love lace and everything....I don't know what rhymes with lace but let's just pretend I said something clever!
The details on this dress were gorgeous! When I was looking for my own dress, I had a vision of lace and it just didn't seem to be for me at the time. It was absolutely perfect for Simone though! She looked stunning in this gorgeous dress 😍

I'd really love to have an anniversary session where we get really dressed up and I have a dress with pretty lace and pretty details. 🌸

Ahhh maybe one of these years soon we can do that!

Oh man....I really can't express how lucky I feel to have captured these two during this special time in their lives! β€’
I was able to meet up with Kristen and David for their maternity session in Alexandria and it was awesome! Hot, but awesome! The last time I had seen them was 2 years ago at their wedding so you can probably understand why this session was so special to me! β€’
I can't wait to meet their little boy when he gets here! #raquelarnoldphotography

This weekend is flying by!
I am still wrapping my head around the fact that my sweet first born baby Luna is going to be turning a year old soon. In 3 weeks soon 😭
This has been the quickest year of my life! It almost feels unfair that time has felt like it has gone by so fast.

I am really looking forward to planning all the details for her first birthday of course though! It probably won't be as pretty as this tablescape for a home reception but I definitely have plans to incorporate some really cute ideas to my "celestial summer" mixed theme. She and I are heading out soon to start getting more pretty things for just party!
If you have any suggestions for babies first birthday, I'd love to hear them!

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July holiday!
πŸ–€

It always feels so odd when a holiday is smack in the middle of the week! I saw a meme today that I thought was perfect which said "It is the Mondayest Thursday ever" πŸ–€

I gotta say too...I am loving this heat! Its finally feeling like summer, not even gonna talk about how rainy of a summer it's been so it feels real good to have that sun out more often....I mean come on! Who doesn't like sunsets?! Anyone else a fan of this heat or prefer it to be cooler?

06/12/2018

I absolutely love how vintage rings are not only being used more often but how so many people are contuning to pass down their families legacy.
I loved hearing Simone tell me story about her rings! They found the engagement ring at an estate sale and the sweetest part....Troy gave her his great grandmother's wedding band which they worked together to put diamonds in. It was such a coincidence that both rings were from the same time period πŸ’›

I just thought that it really made such beautiful sense that as two talented musicians and songwriters building their lives and music careers together that they would build her rings together πŸ’˜

It was clear that he is very close to his grandmother and also completely head over heels in love with Simone. Who could blame him? There was a lot of love and thought built into this ring. Everything about it and these two amazing people had me feeling like I was on cloud nine.

Friday night was a total dream!

Feeling over the moon after getting to meet and work with @kjcallahanphotography for a photoshoot out in Skyline Drive!
πŸŒ™

These two were absolutely amazing trekking the mountains even after we all ran into bears on the way! Seriously, 2 different bears ran out in front us before we parked πŸ™„

But luckily we were all safe especially with Christian here as the main look out!

Can't wait to share more from this amazing and beautiful session!

Well, I survived my first night away from Luna this past Saturday!
》
The great thing is that it was for a wedding which means I was so in the zone and enjoying the day so much with so many wonderful people that it only really hit me a couple times how much I missed her when I saw two other adorable babies at the wedding!
》
I feel so lucky that when I go to "work", that I am doing something that I am so passionate about and that I am surrounded by so much love...so it never feels like work. It makes what I do feel that much more meaningful to me.
》
It's been such an amazing weekend and I am so thankful that I am able to travel (even if it's not too far), to document love and for my amazing little family

The combination of simultaneously sounded musical notes to produce chords and chord progressions having a pleasing effect.

Seeing Simone and Troy get married surrounded by so much love and support was absolutely beautiful and I am so grateful to have been part of this special day.

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs Tyrer!
