Jefferson Memorial Wedding | Washington DC Wedding | Joseph + Albie

 

“Love is the poetry of the senses” – Honore de Balzac.  Joseph + Albie hired me online to shoot their picturesque ceremony at The Jefferson Memorial in the springtime. I had never met them – but had spoken to them via email many times. When they walked up I was so struck by how these two felt about eachother. I could tell right away that they were so happy and ready to commit themselves to marriage. The fact they they were both gorgeous didn’t hurt either!! We started out at the Lincoln Memorial, amidst the construction of the reflecting pool – it was drained and there were trucks lining the sides – not what you picture in your head for wedding shots at The Lincoln! We conquered the constuction however – and got some really cute images. I even got them to wear some goofy glasses for a couple of shots!  We then rode over to The Jefferson to get ready for the ceremony. The weather was perfect and with family watching, they said their vows amongst the cherry blossoms … I was so happy to be able to be a part of such a wonderful day!

Sunset Hills Vineyard | Winery Wedding | Kasey + Aron

I love weddings at Vineyards – Kasey + Aron were married at Sunset Hills Winery in Purcellville, VA. Their vibrant flowers captured the fall season perfectly,  featuring bright oranges, reds and yellows. I loved how this winery was set on a hill and had a farm feel, complete with a cool silo.  I have to admit – I have not taken advantage of all the amazing wineries in the Northern Virginia area – this day made me really want to do a weekend trip out near the Shenandoah to go wine tasting – especially in the fall when the air is crisp and you get that autumn light that seems like it was painted there just for you. I know Kasey and Aron had an amazing day….both myself and my second shooter, Barbara Sigler, were so glad to be a part of it!

Engagement Session | Julie + Adam | County Fair

 

Oh how I love the fair! The Montgomery County Fair that is. I have been going to the Montgomery County Fair ever since high school. I remember spending my youth perusing the crowd wondering who was there this year. I love the smells, the warm air, and the array of vibrant colors. It defines summer to me. I took Julie + Adam there for their Engagement Session because they wanted something different.  We went on the carousel, ate some candy apples, and got to do some people watching too! I can’t wait till summer rolls around again so I can go and have just one more funnel cake! Hope you enjoy!

George Peabody Library Wedding Photography, Baltimore Wedding

Emily + Keith were married at the George Peabody Library in Baltimore. A stunning venue to say the least. To have your ceremony and reception in such a grand and historical place is a wonderful opportunity for any bride and groom and Emily + Keith did it with such style and class! I had the chance to photograph them for their engagement session and their engagement party, these two were so easy to photograph! Emily’s dress was so delicate and modern – I loved it! Their wonderful wedding coordinator, Anne Berman, put all those special touches on everything and made the day go off without a hitch. Both Missy and I were so thrilled to be a part of it!
