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.

Sarah & Gus planned an engagement session that was so uniquely them. These two feel most at home cozied up with a cocktail in hand just hanging out so their favorite bar, The Truxton Inn, was the perfect setting! Since I am so used to photographing outside at the monuments, this was a lovely change of pace for me! I am SO glad I got to snap these images for this stunning couple before they tie the knot on the West Coast!

Catherine & Hamed had one of the most stylish weddings I have ever attended. These two wanted to have a traditional Persian wedding surrounded by family in a room that reminded them of Versailles…. and Cosmos Club delivered! These two both got ready at the club before pledging their lives to one another before flipping the room for reception!

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!

These two broke the glass in front of friends and family in an elegant wedding ceremony that made the Wharf one of my new favorite DC locations! Not only do these two have impeccable taste but they are insanely lovely human beings. I think Emily & Toby are the chairpeople of my fan club. Every post, every new scary step in my business, these two support it full throttle. I am so thankful that we were brought together this year and I actually am having post-wedding depression that this soirée is over.

Family formals are a time dedicated to formal portraits of immediate family. They are the boring part of wedding day but most often, these are the photos that get framed and hang on walls for generations to come.

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!

Ashley and Will had one of my favorite wedding styles. The bride had every single detail laid and out ready when I arrived at the Hay Adams Hotel and each spot was an iconic Washington D.C. location! We began the morning in a suite overlooking the White House and drove to a stunning cathedral before ending the night at St. Francis Hall! What a combination of scenery!
