thevmilko Glo + Jason. Weddings have never been my main focus in photography, but when a bride as beautiful as @gowithglo asks you to shoot her big day, the answer should always be yes. (And look at those socks!) 2d

thevmilko Thank you @foodandwine Magazine, for featuring my photo of @rosesluxury in the latest issue. Not a cover photo, but still not a bad way to start the week. 3d

thevmilko An old 35mm I took of my favorite chocolate chip & banana pancakes spot in town, Pete's Diner in Cap Hill- a place I've been going to for 9 years. Excuse me while I reenacting this scene right now. 7d

thevmilko Earlier this year the @capitalareafoodbank asked me if I would be interested in shooting their first cookbook. I couldn't be more excited to say "YES!" and become part of the team.️Yesterday marked the first day of shooting. I had the pleasure of spending the morning in their urban garden and apiary, documenting their harvest. I couldn't be more excited to work on this longtime project, but more importantly I'm proud to give back to my community by doing something I love: photography. #babysfirstcookbook 1w

thevmilko With life moving faster than ever before, sometimes I take a moment to pause and think about how I've gotten where I am. I couldn't be more grateful for all the love, support and creativity that surrounds me in this city and beyond. #allthefeels 2w

thevmilko #OnAssignment: Never in my life have I ridden through a cheering crowd of thousands of people, with nothing in front of me but a handful of club members and the wind getting ready to whip through my hair. This past weekend I had the pleasure of being first in line/kicking-off the #DCPrideParade with the OUT Riders, a DMV-based LGBT motorcycle club I've been documenting. To say it was incredibly moving is a gross understatement. ️ A special thank you goes to Stacy, the Vice President and one of the founding members of the club, for letting me be her passenger for the day. And to all of the OUT Riders- your candor and desire to live honest and open lives (despite the ignorant protest from some members of our society) inspires me everyday. Thank you for continuing to allow me to experience this world with you. 2w

thevmilko I'll wake up and brave the heat any day if it means getting first pick of produce just pulled from the ground. 2w

thevmilko Yesterday, on the 80th anniversary of the founding of Alcoholics Anonymous, I had the privilege of being on assignment for the Hazelden Betty Ford Institute and the Christie Foundation to photograph their Preventing Opiod Deaths Among Young People conference & panel discussion. Recovering addicts, former models, congressmen/women & other activists all spoke about the state of America's drug epidemic. ️ Having lost far too many of my own loved ones to overdose and abuse, it was a moving day on may levels. My dear friends- please remember that there is always hope. 3w

thevmilko This has been one of the busiest times in my career- and maybe even life. I am so grateful for the amazing clients, collaborators and publications that have given me the privilege of working with them these past few months. Thank you, thank you, thank you for doing what you love ...and allowing me to be a part of it. ️ Here's a fun shot from yesterday's shoot with the fabulous @dressitupdressing 4w
