N & R: Just Married!

I met Nancy years ago, when I took her first grandson's newborn photos, and it was so awesome to capture her falling in love with her new role as a grandparent. I was so stoked when her daughter got in touch this Fall to let me know Nancy had just gotten married! Could we do some post-wedding photos? Of course! There's nothing better than seeing someone who is so deserving of happiness just basking in love. Here's to a beautiful marriage for Nancy and Robert-- and lots of fun with their grandbabies! It's such an honor to watch your family grow and evolve.

N + S: a Washington, DC Engagement Session

N and S had a VISION for their engagement photos, and it involved "an idea we had working out together at the gym when we were both in boat pose". So! Ok! After some more traditional shots in the park, we made their dream a reality with full-sun jumping-around sweaty couples workout photos and obviously it was awesome. I really love the way these people listen and respond to each other, and how much they LAUGH. I'm also so glad we shot these photos in a round the sweet little Petworth group house where they've spent the past few years. Next month, they'll move North, and it was lovely to photograph them where they got engaged and decided to become family.

Married! A + T at the Dacor Bacon House: A Washington DC Wedding

I loved working with A and T to plan their wedding photos, because they wanted to make sure to keep the pictures, like the wedding itself, focused on their personalities and their connection. They were so excited to be marrying each other, and each of them is so delighted by the other's particular brand of quirk. When I look at these photos now, what comes through most is how beautifully they focused in on each other on that gorgeous summer evening, and just let everything else fall away. 

M and K, in Love at Union Market: A Washington DC Engagement

When I met M and K at Comet Pingpong this winter to talk about their wedding photos over beers and pizza, I knew we were gonna be friends. I also knew right away that I wanted to take their engagement photos at Union Market, one of my very favorite spots in DC, and the hour we spent tromping around, marveling at the awesome exteriors, searching out interesting light, and drinking alcoholic slushies felt like the best kind of summer evening with good buddies. These two have so much FUN together, and are so aware of one another's needs and wants. I can't wait to watch (and photograph!) them getting married.
