I met Tom and Rebecca on their honeymoon. My husband and I were taking a much needed vacation to the beach, and Toma and Rebecca were honeymooning at the same resort in Antigua, West Indies, after hosting a rocking destination wedding in Mexico.
We quickly clicked, and discovered that we all lived in the DC metro area. They asked me to do a DC style shoot of them in their wedding clothes after they returned and got settled in, which of course immediately struck us that it just had to be done under the cherry blossoms.
So we met on Friday night, them in their wedding splendor, but completely relaxed and with no where to go (what a treat!). We wandered the tidal basin, chatted and caught up, and grabbed some great shots. What a fun way to spend an evening, in great company with the intention of making great images, under glorious skies. Enjoy!
These are so beautiful, Stacey! They look so relaxed and happy.
I'm jealous, Stacey! The weather looks nice and toasty; the crowds not so big, the bride and groom very relaxed and not rushed by hail, wind, rain, or events; and the sunset is not even obscured by construction equipment — just the opposite of our event last year 🙂 But we wouldn't trade our photos for the world. Can you believe it's been a year already? xo
Thanks Kaarin! And Cheryl, I know! I was thinking about you all week, and especially during this shoot. But you guys were just as beautiful, if not 40 degrees colder. By the way, I worked with your friend Michelle recently!
And Happy Anniversary!! xo
