Together 10 years! // Glenview Mansion Wedding

Kristen & Jason chose Glenview Mansion in Rockville, MD for their wedding. They gathered with family and close friends on a warm Sunday in late September.  This pair of world travelers met in Egypt 10 years prior, and after a decade of adventures they have spent the last few years in DC.

The day was full of love, joy, and lots of laughter, endless jokes and lots of puns! I don’t think there was a moment when Kristen didn’t have the biggest smile on her face.

Here’s a recap of the day…

GreatFalls Wedding //Nod to GoT + a Wine Tasting!

Hello Hello! The Fall 2016 wedding season is in full swing, and while I’ve been finding myself behind the camera most days I had to take a break and share this with you!

In mid-September I had the honor to document M&R ‘s wedding day.  You might remember them from a post a few months back, they are a totally adventurous couple, their engagement session was at Great Falls on the Billy Goat Trail! – Talk about fearless!  So, it was no surprise to me when they agreed to do a little hiking on their wedding day all dressed up.  They got hitched over at Rockwood Manor near Great Falls, with an outdoor ceremony.  Both GoT fans and Wine lovers they included both aspects into their ceremony, which was officiated by her mother!

Here are some highlights…

Sneak Peek // Annapolis Farmhouse Wedding

Hello! This Thursday I’m traveling all the way back to 3 weeks ago when Dorji and Hyun-Soo tied the knot.  These two got married overlooking the Chesapeake Bay, it was breathtaking. Their venue was a 1920’s farmhouse  that is actually listed on the popular Air BNB website.  This was my first Air BNB wedding, and let me tell you, it is the way to go!

The wedding was a fusion of cultures. Dorji is Butonese and Hyun-Soo is Korean, together they celebrated with both traditions.  For the Reception Dorji changed into her American wedding dress and the couple danced the night away.  Guests sent them off with a festive sparkler exit!

The wedding was coordinated my Sonia of Clarity and Class, Hair and Makeup was done by Yesli of YesliHMUA.

Here is a Sneak Peek of the day…

              

Are you and your partner from two different cultural or religious backgrounds? If so, what are your plans or ideas on how to bring them together on your BIG DAY?

Fall Family Portraits// Old Town Alexandria

Happy Friday!   This week I have been taking a look back at the Fall.  It was a very busy time of year.  It seems so long ago!  Right before Thanksgiving I shot a family portrait session in Old Town Alexandria, VA.  I love this place.  We met up when the lighting was perfect and made a few stops around town.  Here is what I walked away with…

Spring is just around the corner! I am looking forward to flowers blooming and trees being green again.  Do you have the winter blues?

Have a great weekend!

#TBT// Sandy Ruins, NY

It’s Thursday and you know what that means.  This week I am taking a break form sharing a wedding and looking back on some photos I shot while in NYC last October for the annual Photo Plus Expo.  My friend John and his Fiancé Jess live in Brooklyn so I stayed with them for my visit.  When I arrived, John who is also a photographer (we went to college together) took me to see the Hurricane Sandy ruins down in Breezy Point.  I knew the damage was bad but I was shocked when seeing these ruins in person.  This public beach and boardwalk is completely abandoned.  I hope it gets restored and re-built soon.  These are the photos I walked away with…

A Stunning DC Courthouse Wedding! -Recap

One of the last weddings I shot in 2014 was a stunning DC Courthouse wedding!  The couple met in DC and wanted that to reflect in their wedding photos so we went down to the Lincoln Memorial and did the first look and portraits there.  The couple then had a intimate and simple ceremony at the courthouse surrounded by close family.

Here is a recap of the lovely and special day…
