Photography by Rudy Conrad

I am a wedding, portrait and landscape photographer based out of Ashburn, Virginia.

The most important part of photographing your event is to hand over photos that reflect the emotions and the essence of your special day. There is a decisive moment-that interplay between feeling, facial expression and body language-that I capture again and again. These are the photos that will bring a smile to your face and have you take a deep breath while you relive the moment not just tomorrow but years from now. You will find my style refreshing but adhering to classic guidelines to ensure that you won't look back years from now and say "What were we thinking." My style will not force you into poses that are not "you"-we will work together to find what works so that we capture the essence of who you are. Allow me to tell your story and capture your decisive moment.

I love real flowers for the bridal bouquet. It's my favorite way to photograph the rings. :)

Have a great start to your week! I know that these two will :)

I am about to leave for a wedding and wanted to share this moment between bride and family. Photos can sum up a lot of emotions and words in just one photo. I wonder why no one has come up with a saying like "A picture is worth a thousand words" :)
Happy Saturday or, if you like cats, Caturday!

I always get excited when I find a new location to shoot at. Especially when it is right by my house :)

A quick preview from Stephanie and Joey's wedding while I wrap up the gallery for them. Happy 4th of July to them and to all of you!
I am taking some vacation but will be active on Instagram:

After an exhausting but fun two days of a corporate event, I am about to drop the final gallery for this wedding :)
And a happy father's day to all the dads out there.

A quick preview of Kelsey and Anthony's Ida Lee Park wedding. What a perfect backdrop for this sweet couple. The wedding ran a little late and that allowed us to shoot in perfect evening light :)

Out of all the moments, out all all the photos taken, these are always my favorite. 100% real love. You just have to be in the right place at the right time :)

I am (still) horrible at social media and I won't even promise to post more often.
Anyway, I have a fun season ahead :) I'll do my best to pop in from time to time.

Here are a few from my regular sessions with Victoria from If you are into fashion, follow her on Instagram: vlaxerg

I shot my first birthday cake smash session!
Lots of first because of this awesome family. Back in 2011/2012, the parents were my first couples session and first wedding. They were also part of my first family session, first senior session and lots of other firsts.
Every one needs someone to believe in them. I will always be grateful for Elizabeth and Jordan. And their entire family!
