dancer at heart,

I'm so stoked that you've stopped by! I started Understitch Photography in 2016 and have loved capturing joyful, vibrant, and authentic memories for families and couples in the DMV area over the years.

Whether you're engaged, newlyweds, or about to expand your nest, I would love to work together and commemorate this special time in your lives - let's make some magic!

Hi friends, I'm Jocelyn!

some fun facts

When I say I'd love to help you pick outfits for your session, I really really mean it!! Hint: pastels, neutrals, and jewel tones are going to be your best friends!

I majored in textiles and apparel in college.

My hubby is an impossible combination of sweet, nerdy, athletic, and totally hunky - I like to call him the unicorn of husbands. ;)

I'm married to the man of my dreams. 

My Birkenstock obsession is no joke - I'm all about that molded anatomical footbed and rigid cork goodness!

I have "problem" feet and am always on the lookout for supportive yet cute shoes.

I also lived in Milan for a semester, and the Duomo in Milan is one of my favorite buildings in the world!

I speak three foreign languages (Mandarin Chinese, Italian, and Spanish).
