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.

This year was surreal. I built my business in ways I never thought possible. I photographed 29 weddings, 61 engagement & lifestyle sessions, 10 boudoir sessions, 2 proposals and 21 mini sessions. I traveled to abroad to Cuba, Tulum, Montreal, cruised Alaska and slept in a car in the Great American West.

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!

This was my favorite thing I have photographed… possibly ever. Sarah and Chris emailed me a week before their elopement asking if I was available for 2 hours on Sunday. With only a few emails, I was given an address and time to arrive to capture their ceremony. I arrived at Sarah’s apartment to meet them both. Sarah had cooked brunch for their entire wedding (which was 16 people including myself). She got ready in their DC apartment while I photographed a small amount of detail images. Sarah wore the dress that both her mother and grandmother had worn on their wedding day! Her mom had reconstructed it and sewed all three of their names in the lining.

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!

Elise & Jarrett opted for 2 extremely different portrait locations for their engagement session and I was all about it! We started at the Jefferson memorial at sunrise to get some classic DC portraits and ended with their pup walking around Roosevelt Island!

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!

Jenna and JJ were introduced by mutual friends. They met at a concert in DC but almost like an episode of How I Met Your Mother, JJ ended up on TWO blind dates at once! He had to run up and down the flights of stairs at the club to entertain two set-ups from different groups of friends that unbeknownst to him, unintentionally fell on the same evening! What are the odds!

These two have a very cool history. They actually met online but come to find out, their families are from the same small town in India and their grandfathers used to be NEXT DOOR NEIGHBORS. How crazy is that!? I can’t believe that these two would find one another hundreds of miles away decades after their families knew one another. I think it’s safe to say that fate stepped in here.
