Documenting weddings, fun families and great personalities in Northern Virginia

two best friends that are a bit quirky, creative, outgoing and adventurous. We graduated from the Art Institute of Washington D.C. in 2013 and have been documenting weddings, fun families and great personalities together since we joined forces and created Forest Heart Photography. If you found your way to us through the vastness of the interwebs, then welcome, we’re so glad you are here. Documenting life can be incredibly personal and intimate and we believe your photos should also be captured that way. Authentic moments are the best kind, so we encourage our clients to forget about awkward stiff posing, and just have fun.

For us it’s pretty simple – we love what we do because our clients are fabulous. If you’re not afraid to get your shoes a little dirty, climb up on some rocks or through the woods and be real with each other and with us – then lets hang out and create awesome portraits together!


We're Allison & Carrie...

This was the honest to goodness happiest day of my entire life. Thank you Forest Heart Photography for capturing so many beautiful moments!

"The happiest day of my life!"

Carrie & Allison did a wonderful job of photographing our big day! They put us both at ease, as neither my husband or I are big fans of having our picture taken. For my getting ready shots, they were really wonderful about accommodating my bridesmaids' requests and giving me time to calm down (haha). Carrie & Allison were also really patient with our rowdy friends during group shots and really captured their spirit and ours perfectly--and it seemed like they were having fun too! During the actual ceremony and reception, they were wedding ninjas -- we didn't notice them but they got amazing shots.  The photos were up online very quickly, and we were able to share and download them before our flash drive came in the mail. In sum, these ladies were AMAZING. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone!
