I first met Cara and Joe last year, to discuss wedding coverage for their July 2011 date. Immediately I could see the love between the two of them, and their relaxed joy in discussing their big day.
So when I walked into Cara’s suite at the ever spectacular Hotel Monaco DC on Saturday morning, and found her relaxed, gorgeous and ready to go, I wasn’t the least bit surprised. She showed me the gorgeous vintage earrings that Joe had gifted her that morning. He also found a pitch-perfect hair piece, made by an artist on Etsy who re-purposes broaches. I love how he could match her dress so perfectly, without even having seen it.
The amazing vendor team:

Have you ever been to the adorable Old Town, Alexandria maternity and infant boutique, Apple Seed? From the unique props to the hand-distressed furniture throughout the store, the owners have created a beautiful space that fits the needs of parents to be.
This year, Stacey Vaeth Photography was invited to do an installation for their walls. Each piece is adorned by our new vintage frames. We’re so excited!
And the best part, if you swing by Apple Seed and mention that you heard about them from Stacey Vaeth Photography (and since you’ll have to say it out loud – it’s vaeth – pronounced like “Faith” but with a V) :), they’ll give you 15% off of one item!

Keigan and Kate were so much fun to work with at their engagement session! A true southern girl, Kate even brought out the cowgirl boots for part of the shoot. Kate’s a videographer, so really understands visual impact, and therefore came with a look that matched what they told me they wanted out of their session. We had met beforehand, which is really helpful in this process. They expressed the whimsy and vintage look that they are crafting for their outdoor wedding. And they showed me the most unique thing I have seen in a while, an adorable Save the Date video, starring them, and created by Kate. Congratulations you two! Thanks for sharing your joy…

I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend celebrating the 4th of July. My husband, brother and I went down to North Carolina to spend the weekend with my family. Two days of sun, great food, and great conversation does a person right. And watching the fireworks with one of my closest friends, since we met at age 7, well, it was just an awesome weekend.
In celebration of a joyful and colorful summer, here are a few photos of my friends’ son, cutie that he is.
His little puckered face, on the brink of a cry, was as a result of me taking his cracker away. His grandmother, when relayed the story, said “Now why would she do that to him??!!” Mean photographer that I am replied “Anything for a picture”.
