Meg and Marc – Hotel Monaco | Washington, DC Wedding Photographer

This past weekend, I had the joy of photographing the wedding of Meg and Marc, two very good friends of my sister. I was first contacted by Meg after she saw one of my weddings featured on the great blog District Weddings. She was interested in my work and style as a photographer, but it was only after the first contact that we put…

A Cherry Blossom Wedding

Do you remember the hail today? The ominous skies, the intermittent rain….the everything falling in on us but locusts? My bride and groom, Cheryl and Mark, had planned a picture perfect wedding on the East Lawn of the Jefferson Memorial, timed with the peak cherry blossom blooms, for 4pm today. Yup. Right around the time that the skies were spitting, coughing and generally very…

DIY

One of my favorite bridal blogs in this area is called District Weddings. They have a great series on etiquette tips right now, and the piece from this morning struck my interest. The question was: Are wedding favors something to leave out when considering budget? The response was that favors really remind your friends and family how happy you were that they came to…

Aubrey and David, Meridian House | Washington, DC Wedding Photographer

I officially have a new favorite venue for weddings in Washington, DC. The Meridian House is a treasure, a hidden little enclave off of 15th St. NW. During Saturday’s serene, soulful wedding ceremony between Aubrey and David, you’d never know that across the street in Meridian Hill (Malcolm X) Park there were drum circles, Acro Yoga, and hundreds of city dwellers soaking in the…

Chris & Alexis – The Mandarin Oriental Hotel | Washington, DC Wedding Photographer

I had such a wonderful time photographing the wedding of Alexis and Chris on Sunday. Supported by my fantastic colleage, Jenna Issacson, we enjoyed a day free of rain and about 10 degrees cooler than any other wedding I’ve done this summer. When I got home from the wedding, I said to my husband, “this wedding made me want to get married all over…

Jeff and Paola – Ritz Carlton, Tysons Corner | Mclean, VA Wedding Photographer

What a wedding! Jeff and Paola got married last week at the beautiful Ritz Carlton. Every detail was planned to perfection and went off without a hitch, thanks to the amazing vendor team and totally passionate couple and their families. It was a true pleasure to work with them and share in their amazing day. And the day would not have been complete without…

Mike & Meghan – Potowmack Farms | Lovettsville, VA Weding Photographer

I’ve blogged before about light (and if you’re a client of mine, you’ve definitely heard me talk about it). This weekends’ wedding was a great example of how a photograph is truly just capturing light, its mood, its intensity. The subject of the photograph shapes, bends and reflects the light in different ways. If you can think about photography in this way, your images…

Nic & Elizabeth – National Museum of Women in the Arts | Washington, DC Wedding Photgrapher

Nic and Elizabeth had such a gorgeous wedding this weekend – as Memorial Day kicked off summer and the heat played along quite well. The spectacular National Museum of Women in the Arts hosted the event, and we ventured down to the Potomac to do some bridal party shots. Here are a few of my favorites to tide everyone over until the slideshow is…

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…
