Washington DC Wedding | St. Francis Hall Wedding | Emily + Dave

Emily + Dave had their wedding in December at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Bethesda, MD and then had their reception at St. Francis Hall in Washington DC. I shot Emily’s cousin’s wedding a couple of years ago and was thrilled when their family called me again to do Emily + Dave’s gorgeous day! They got engaged about 3 1/2 years ago in front of the Lincoln memorial in DC – then Dave surprised Emily by having all their family and friends waiting a bar downtown to celebrate with them. Dave is one of 9 kids so this was a big event! Emily got ready at The Mayflower Hotel in DC. I was absolutely in love with her dress – the plunging open back with lace, then it flowed into a tool bottom that was stunning! Both Missy and I were so happy to be a part of such an amazing event!

The Oaks Wedding | Eastern Shore Wedding | Maryland Wedding Photographer | Kate + Heather

Maryland Wedding Photographer

One of my favorite things about weddings is getting to meet some pretty cool people and getting to witness in other people what love is really all about. Its about finding that person that makes you happy and puts a smile on your face everyday. You could see that these two were so happy and had the love and support of all their family around them.  Kate + Heather booked me via Skype because they live in California and I instantly felt very comfortable with them and knew I would be a perfect fit for their day. I work at The Oaks many times during the year and one of my favorite seasons is early fall – when they sun sets with a golden hue but there is a breeze off the bay that makes an outdoor ceremony much easier and pleasant! I loved Kate’s tool gown – they are the most fun to photograph because of the texture. Heather wore a beautiful white tailored pantsuit and white shoes. They had Seasonal Flowers for their gorgeous flowers with coral and sea green themed details. Missy second shot with me and we really were honored to be able to document their day for them!

Engagement Session Washington DC | Nhi + Patrick

Nhi + Patrick are getting married in October in Bethesda and decided they wanted to do their engagement session in Georgetown and the Lincoln Memorial in DC. It was a hot July day and we met at Starbucks on M Street before venturing out onto the streets to find some interesting nooks and crannies to capture some fun shots. There are so many areas in Georgetown to shoot – I shoot there a couple of times a year and I always find new spots. We hit Ben + Jerry’s to cool down and then we Ubered over to the Lincoln Memorial. This was my first Uber experience and it was awesome! The driver dropped us off right at the Lincoln and we got there just in time to get some sunset shots. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding next month!

Walker’s Overlook Wedding | Maryland Weddings | Meredith + Travis

Meredith + Travis were married at Walker’s Overlook last fall – and it was such an incredible wedding! I loved all the cute details and simple touches that made this wedding so stinking cute! They had the best food – it was all top knotch BBQ – with amazing cornbread and pulled pork as well as bbq chicken.
And this couple made sure their wedding really reflected who they are – fun and laidback. They love to camp so they had friends and family set up tents in the field next to the reception tent and they camped out the night after the wedding – so fun!

Reception Location: Walker’s Overlook
