Renee and Eric are my ideal clients. They are game for almost any photo suggestion, are madly in love and are cute as hell. These two wanted classic DC photos before heading off to tie the knot in Mexico! Eric works a lot near the capitol and is very into visual arts so was super involved in the creative process which I LOVED! These guys had a clear vision and it was a JOY executing it!

Today I want to share a less glamorous part of my job: behind the scenes. I have to admit, on wedding day… I WORK. I sweat, I run, I sometimes trip and fall. But I will pretty much go to any lengths to get the perfect images for my couples. Every year, I create a folder of behind the scenes images from my second shooters. This year, I decided to share some of my favorites. While I don’t look my most glamorous on the job, you can see the joy my work brings me in almost every image.

2018 Behind the Scenes | Virginia Wedding Photographer Life | Personal Post

I met Victoria over a year ago! I was hired to photograph her sister’s wedding at the Josephine Butler Parks Center. Victoria is a photographer herself AND was a bridesmaid. I myself have been in this position and know what it’s like to want to take pictures of your loved one getting married! I encouraged her to snap some images during the day and she was the biggest help during their Alex’s day! Fast forward to THIS fall and Victoria is engaged herself!

Embassy Row Engagement | Washington DC Fall Engagement Session | Victoria and Paul

Aidan and Greg had the sweetest wedding this fall. They decided to make it feel super comfortable and causal for all their loved ones involved! These two hosted 54 people in the Josephine Butler Parks Center to watch them exchange hand written vows in the small ballroom during sunset. Aidan and Greg decided on a first look in Meridian Hill Park so they could greet their guests to he ceremony as they arrived!

Josephine Butler Parks Center Wedding | Washington DC Wedding | Aidan and Greg

Never has there ever been a goofier groom than Rob. I think I laughed the entire 2 hour session with these two. Rob’s sense of humor made this engagement session a breeze because he always made Renee smile from ear to ear! We woke up super early to walk around Jefferson and then headed to Lincoln. Even though Lincoln was under construction, you can hardly tell!

Washington DC Memorial Engagement Session | District of Columbia Wedding Photographer | Renee and Rob

Not only is this engagement a personal favorite because of the location but it’s also a favorite because MY GAL PAL KATIE IS ENGAGED! I met Katie almost 4 years ago when I was running around my apartment complex. She was walking her dog Windsor and I just had to stop and say hello. After a few chance encounters, we found that we had heaps in common: we love dance parties, photography and we’re both in education. As two girls in their twenties tend to do, we started watching the Bachelor together every Monday! Although she moved from the neighborhood, we kept our Monday night tradition and stayed friends through the stressors of building our businesses and figuring out life in DC.
