When you find a secret patch of cherry blossom trees and there are no tourists around, you get dreamy and romantic engagement photos! I met Azi & Yacob early one Sunday morning in April as the cherry blossoms in D.C. were in peak bloom. This location ended up being our Plan B due to rain on our previously schedule session at the tidal basin, but I think it worked out for the best! We had this area to ourselves the whole time with beautiful, soft light from the overcast morning weather. These two were all smiles during their photo session and I thoroughly enjoyed photographing their love. Congratulations Azi & Yacob!

Emma & Greg now reside in New York, but they wanted to have their wedding back in D.C. at the historic Cosmos Club near Dupont Circle. Emma wore a 100 year old dress that has been passed down through the women in her family over the many generations. I couldn’t believe how well preserved it was! We were lucky to get a beautiful spring weather on this early day in April so that we could take advantage of the blooming gardens that surround the club. Their ceremony was sweet and the reception was held on one of the most gorgeous ballrooms I have ever seen. Emma & Greg’s wedding was lovely and I wish them all the best!

I have found the best wedding album company yet and I’m excited to offer their beautiful fine art books to my clients! They have endless customization options, seamless spreads that lay perfectly flat and a lifetime guarantee of quality. The combination of their binding, fine art paper and archival ink is flawless. I am working on creating a sample album to show off. Until then, check out the many color options they have for their books as well as some sample spreads for inspiration!

After their week day elopement, the newly weds invited close friends and family to celebrate their union at the gorgeous Carnegie Institute for Science the following Saturday. I had the pleasure of meeting little Miss CoCo, Elise & Tyler’s West Highland Terrier, during formal photos. These kind souls took in this dog from a shelter when no one else would and nursed her back to health. Check out their sweet photos together and the good times that were had by all!

Elise & Tyler chose the beautiful Moongate Garden in Washington, D.C. this November for their intimate elopement. Located within the Enid A. Haupt Garden next to the stunning Smithsonian Castle, this secluded area was the perfect backdrop for these two to share their vows. Their officiant, Jeff Maszal, lead Elise & Tyler’s short and sweet ceremony while I snapped away from every angle to capture these precious moments. Congratulations to the happy couple!

I’ve been to Riverside on the Potomac several times over the years and this wedding was the first one I’ve photographed where the ceremony was held inside the barn on the bottom level. It was dark and romantic, lit only by a chandelier and under a simple copper frame with a gorgeous floral arrangement. Meghan and Jon have great taste when it came to their details and they also included personal touches like a beer tasting for their guests right before their ceremony and beer mugs as flower vases. This was a beautiful wedding and I had a great time working with this lovely couple.

Liz & Neil are two of the kindest people you could ever hope to meet and their lovely fall wedding at the Whittemore House was absolute perfection. They started out by getting ready at the Dupont Circle Hotel next door (I love this hotel for getting ready photos!) before their first look. We headed to the fountain in Dupont Circle for wedding party photos and the weather was just gorgeous. I loved that Liz & Neil could really be themselves in front of the camera and that they added special touches to their day that reflected their style and personalities. If I could go back in time and document this day again, I would – that’s how much I enjoyed it!

Rust Manor House is a gorgeous property and I was thrilled when Kathleen and Andrew agreed to meet me here for their engagement photo session. The weather was perfect that day and we pretty much had the place to ourselves. I love the tall evergreens that surround the house and the old barn out back. Kathleen and Andrew were a bit nervous at first, but it didn’t take them long to get comfortable in front of the camera and really let their feelings for each other show. I love it when couples get lost in each other’s eyes and can’t stop smiling at one another. Love and laughter are the greatest things to photograph! I can’t wait to see these two get married next fall in D.C.!

DAR is a gorgeous venue and this is the second wedding I’ve had the privilege of documenting there. Tiffany and Teddy are a very fun couple to be around and they have killer taste in fashion and decor. Tiffany’s wedding dress has to be one of my all time favorites. After getting ready photos at their hotel, we all headed to the Jefferson Memorial for the first look. It was a beautiful fall day and I had Tiffany meet Teddy under the trees with the beautiful memorial in the background so they could have their moment alone and exchange private vows to one another. The outdoor ceremony, the dinner, the toasts, the dancing – the rest of the day went off without a hitch thanks to the talented planning by Alexandra Nesterak.

District Winery is a new venue in D.C. and I was excited to shoot here for the first time in February. Natalie and Corey are an awesome couple and I was looking forward to their wedding day after their engagement photo session at their apartment in D.C. where I got to know them. Their ceremony was especially beautiful as the blue sky faded to black through the glass windows as they exchanged vows beneath a gorgeous chuppah. I’m jealous of their upcoming honeymoon in Tanzania!
