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!

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!

Laura and Dan’s Union Station wedding in Washington, D.C. is not one to forget. It was romantic, emotional, beautiful and unique. I loved the deep red tones, the tall, metal candelabras at the reception, Laura’s birdcage veil and the deep, emotional connection Laura and Dan have for one another. They were both close with their families and, even though Laura’s grandfather is no longer with them, her grandmother brought along his dog tags so he could be remembered on this special day. I really enjoyed working with this couple and their planner, Carin Lomax, did a wonderful job executing their vision. Their wedding actually took place in the summer of 2016, but I still love their photos and wanted to share them with you today!

Melissa hired me on the spot after seeing a high school friend’s wedding I covered last year. She and Michael live in Pennsylvania so I didn’t get a chance to meet with them in person before the wedding, but knew they had great taste after seeing their venue’s website. This place is insanely beautiful! And it couldn’t have been a more perfect day in September. Melissa and Michael are the kind of people you hope to have as good friends and it was an honor to capture their gorgeous wedding day at the Manor House at Prophecy Creek!

I can’t say enough nice things about Allison, Matt and their families. They are all incredibly kind people who know how to have a good time. They did an amazing job planning their Virginia wedding from Colorado and I am the lucky one who got to document their union this summer. I figured it was meant to be at our meeting since Allison had the same rose gold engagement ring as I did! This was my first wedding at the Winery at Bull Run and I fell in love with this venue. With a gorgeous setting for the ceremony and unique winery flair around the property, there are endless possibilities for photos here. Allison and Matt started off with a first look in the vines before their afternoon ceremony among close family and friends on this mild August day. We literally had the most perfect light for their portraits both before and after the ceremony. As a natural light photographer, I couldn’t be happier! There were so many beautiful and fun moments at this wedding – I truly enjoyed capturing it all. Congratulations Allison and Matt! I wish you many years of happiness!

It’s so inspiring when couples can plan their own wedding and really make the day reflect their style and relationship. Lindsay and Max did just that. Their wedding bands were custom made, they asked the bride’s brother to officiate the ceremony, the bridesmaids got to choose their own dresses and they incorporated different elements that represented their travels together – like the cake, luggage tag table cards and postcard notes. The Josephine Butler Parks Center in NW DC is a great venue for DIY couples. It’s a gorgeous Renaissance-revival style mansion located across the street from Meridian Hill Park. I’ve been shooting here for years and have always loved this place. It was fun to be at Lindsay and Max’s apartment while she and her friends got ready. It had much more character there than your standard hotel room! They have this beautiful blue wall in their living room that I am just obsessed with along with photos and artifacts from traveling around the world. I’m glad the rain stopped before we made our way to the park. Luckily Lindsay was prepared and had matching umbrellas for all of her girls! Max spent his time before the ceremony at a local bar in Adam’s Morgan. Nothing wrong with calming your nerves with a beer or two before you say your vows! After a sweet ceremony, lovely toasts from friends and family and a choreographed father-daughter dance, Lindsay and Max let loose on the dance floor and everyone had a great time celebrating! Congrats to the happy couple!
