During Cherry Blossom season, I had the pleasure of photographing Angelica and Melissa. These two are the perfect match: Angelica is a local wedding planner and Melissa is a photographer herself! These two drove down from Maryland to have a mini sweetheart session in the sun with me at Haines Point!

As soon as I Facetimed Marie & Rachel, I knew we were the perfect fit. These two love hanging out at the brewery with their pupper, relaxed evenings by the water and each other. After hearing about their wedding vision at Stone Tower, I could so easily picture a day filled with good times and amazing friendships. If their engagement session was any indication of wedding day, it’s going to be amazingly fun, beautiful and laid back!

The Wharf DC Engagement Photos | District of Columbia Engagement Session | Rachel and Marie

Stroke of Midnight had an extremely elegant color scheme. I also LOVED this shoot because it prominently featured a same-sex couple. I think representation is SO important in the wedding industry so when a national company like Pantone or Wedding Wire elects to create an editorial with two grooms, it makes me incredibly happy. We had an absolute blast while shooting in the Something Vintage warehouse. The entire setting was paradise for any photographer.

Pantone Wedding Trends | 2019 Wedding Inspiration | Stroke of Midnight

It is pride month ladies and gentlemen! I am super passionate about is same sex weddings. A number of my very best friends have “come out” to me at throughout my lifetime and the conversation is always met with laughter, sometimes happy tears and love. When the Supreme Court decision to legalize same sex marriage was announced nearly a year ago from this week, I was filled with overwhelming pride for my country and happiness for my friends who can now choose to marry whom their heart loves. Love truly does win.
