amanda + jasper {ashburn, virginia}

Finally getting around to sharing Amanda and Jasper’s epic Virginia engagement portrait session!

Beth and I had such a great time with Amanda and Jasper.  These two are so smart and so much fun to be around!    Their super style combined with the stunning beauty of their work campus, had me running around like a kid in a candy store!  These two are definitely going places…

It’s right about now when I told Amanda I wish she was my personal stylist!

Love this simple portrait that shows exactly how beautiful these two are!

This next one is an inside joke, but I think it is a delightful image…

WE HAD THIS MUCH FUN…

So sweet!

Amanda and Jasper we are so looking forward to seeing you on your wedding day in upstate New York!  xoxo

Sis Patterson - Awesome photos – I can see why you two had such a great shoot – wonderful couple and wonderful location! Looking forward to seeing more!

Nanci - These pictures are beautiful. You captured the love, joy, and fun this couple radiates. Great work Alice and Beth.

tera + mark {brooklyn engagement}

It is definitely engagement portrait season, as the past two weekends, I’ve been on the road to New York City and Virginia for work.   I’ve shared a couple of quick peeks on my facebook page here and here.

I’m thrilled to share this full post from Tera and Mark’s Brooklyn engagement session.

Tera and Mark share a love of live music, and started collecting and rotating these amazing concert posters in their Williamsburg apartment.

Tera’s smile is the most beautiful I’ve ever seen!

They are so sweet and super adorable.  I love these next few black & white images…

Tera and Mark’s cat Pablo was not feeling well that day, but from all the photographs I’ve seen he always seems to have this surprised look on his darling little face!

We walked around Brooklyn and found this cool urban wall…

We also took in the view of Manhattan near sunset.  This is a favorite of mine…

Gorgeousness…

Tear and Mark… I cannot wait for your beautiful wedding in September!  I know it is going to be full of love and lots ‘o fun!   xoxo

vencanice - They are so happy couple, we can see that. They wii have an amazing wedding, i hope.

Amanda - such a beautiful couple :) great pics!

Beth - They look so happy! Beautiful photos!

Genevieve - Great session Alice .

jackson {puppy portrait}

Last summer Beth and I had such a great time photographing Lauren and Jimmy… you can see a couple of shots here and here.   So when we got the call that Lauren and Jimmy had recently rescued Jackson a super adorable cockapoo puppy, we were over the moon with excitement to meet and photograph him!

Aside from being just stinking adorable, Jackson has some fun tricks he likes to do. Like dancing….

Seeing who is coming by to visit…

Sitting of course…

And circling back to just being so dang cute!

Thanks for the uber fun portrait session Lauren, Jimmy and Jackson!  xoxo, Alice

Kris - Sooooo cute!

Cindy Schultz - ahhhh! i’m in love with that face ♥ what a sweetheart!

Cockapoo Place - Spectacular photos! Jackson is gorgeous!

With that in mind, now is the perfect time to order your high school senior graduation announcements, invitations, and thank you cards.  I’m thrilled to introduce Alice G Patterson’s exclusive line of Graduation Announcements, created by my dear friend Carolynn (aka the brilliant talent of Two Brunettes)!

All of the cards sets are accompanied with white envelopes.

You can opt for an elegant folded 5×7 card or a simple double sided card.

Other customizations of text and color schemes are available.

Please contact me to discuss your Graduation Announcements needs.

In addition to these beautiful designs, we also still carry some of our popular designs from previous seasons seen here.

laurie + travis {washington dc engagement}

Like so many of my wedding clients, Laurie and Travis are getting married in New York, but they live out of state.  Whenever possible, I always try to photograph engagement portraits where a couple currently lives.  I believe this offers a perfect opportunity to create wonderful portraits in locations that are meaningful to my clients. Not to mention, I love to a road trip!

For Laurie and Travis, this meant I traveled to, our nation’s beautiful capital, Washington DC.

We started off our adventure in Travis’ neighborhood…

Then jaunted over to Georgetown…

Lastly, we found ourselves on top of The John F. Kennedy Center, just as the sun was setting …

This is what I call a “real hug!”

So so so cute!

Speaking of locations with special meaning… this is where Laurie and Travis had their first kiss!

Laurie and Travis, thank you so much for the wonderful afternoon in DC.  I’m so looking forward to your upcoming Cooperstown Wedding!

xoxo, Alice

Beth - Great photos! I’m looking forward to meeting both Laurie and Travis and being the second shooter at their wedding :)

Mindy - Beautiful engagement session: its so great how you incorporated so many different places! I love that you went back to the place where they had their first kiss.

marriage {and babies}

Last year I had the honor of photographing Jen and Anton’s gorgeous Aurora Inn wedding…

I’m sending them a big blog congratulations, as they are now expecting their first baby together!

You all know how much I love photographing my clients, but it really means the world to me when they send that love back to me!  Here is a very sweet note Jen sent when she signed up for her “Baby’s First Year” portrait collection… “Hi Alice, So glad to be signed on for another project with you! Gives me peace of mind  & something extra to look forward to knowing that these specials moments won’t slip by unphotographed. xoxo Jen”

I’m excited beyond belief to meet this new little person!

xoxo, Alice

Chrissy - They are so smart: a baby’s first year rushes by even faster than a wedding day!

laurie + travis {quick peek}

Here is a quick peek from Laurie and Travis’ Washington D.C. engagement session.   Laurie and Travis are such a great couple, and I feel like this image really captures a lovely combination of playfulness and drama…

More to come!  xoxo

Sis Patterson - What a great shot – love the architectural details in the background and the perfect lighting on the couple. Super engagement picture with a lovely couple!

Benn Brown - Lovely shot!! I would love to get over your way some time for a shoot:)

addie {puppy portrait}

I just couldn’t resist sending you off to your weekend with this adorable sneak peek of Miss Addie… a nine week old Corgi/ Australian Shepard mix.

This girl won our hearts!

Could this be the next step in my new Baby’s First Year portrait collections?

Sis - Such a darling little girl with her precious duck and her darling puppy toes! Great photo!

Pup Fan - Oh my goodness… could she be any cuter?

Beth - I wish so much that I had done this with my babies! Yes, we took photos, but we didn’t document the way we should have. And there are almost no pictures with all of us.
