A Little of This, a Little of That

Sorry to be so remiss in the blog posting department. I’ve been a bit swamped with weddings andalbums and Mother’s Day, and was off last week to celebrate my friend, Erin, who won a Gracie Award for her work at NPR.

Here are a few images from the last two weeks that I particularly love. Also in the works this week – a new work space for photographers! More to come on that later. First off, a book launch from the great Realtor, Eldad Moraru (our personal Realtor).

and his beautiful daughter…Tahlia, examining the goods…

The event was hosted by Eldad’s ever-talented wife, Jodi Moraru, of Evoke

Secondly, a fabulous family session at Meadowlark Gardens, VA

 and lastly, a soulful, small wedding at the Arts Center of Arlington…

More soon,

Join us for a Photo Workshop – This Saturday!

Just in time for your summer vacation, join Stacey for a two-hour workshop on how to take better pictures.

During the first hour, we will be in the studio discussing the elements of a good photograph, and tricks of the trade to getting the shot you want. For the second hour, we will pound the streets of Mt. Pleasant, looking for inspiration and snapping photos. Stacey will be on hand to answer questions throughout your photo walk.

A basic working knowledge of your camera is essential. Digital SLR’s are recommended for this class, however, point-and-shoot camera users are welcome as well. Bring a notepad, pen, water, snack and a second layer. If desired, bring a photograph you have taken that’s not very successful.

The workshop is $5 off if you register in advance!

Alice and Robert – Institute of Spiritual Development | Adams Morgan, Washington, DC Wedding Photographer

Alice and Robert got married this Saturday. They came to me first as students in my yoga class, Alice with her blond ringlets, and both with wide open hearts. Alice and Robert truly share themselves, their spirit and their energy with all who come into their lives. So it was no surprise that their ceremony and reception were filled with elements that included their guests, reflected what is important to them, and was truly soulful.

They were married at the Institute of Spiritual Development, and had their reception at the Adams Morgan neighborhood favorite, Perry’s.

Their wildflower arrangements were perfect….as was this sign, on the wall of the hallway at the Institute. 

Tissues on ever pew, and a buddha in the garden…

The broom that they would jump over in the ceremony….and the groom showing off his purple socks.

The bride and father of the bride…and fellow yoga teacher, Susie, and student, Talton, watching the entrance…

Alice and Robert wrote their own vows, and included many elements, including sipping from each other’s wine glasses, binding their hands together and, jumping the broom!

We moved onto the Georgetown waterfront for some fun pictures of bride and groom along the water
And onto Perry’s for a reception full of music, toasts, food, drink, sunshine! And a beautiful song, written by Robert for Alice.
Congratulations Robert and Alice!
