Athenaeum Wedding- Keara & Nick

Athenaeum Wedding. Keara met Nick a about a year ago, and when they started planning their wedding, they knew they wanted something simple yet elegant. Their wedding is the epitome of that sentence. I’m surprised by how relaxed and low key she was about the whole event. Keara said the most important thing in her wedding was saying “I do”. I thought, wow, this girl’s got it all figured out. She didn’t have a dj, a seated dinner, or buffet. There were lots of finger foods, and drinks. They did exactly what they wanted to do.

I love her satin dress, simple updo, and the bright red lip stain she wore. She said she wanted to look like herself for Nick. Can you believe she isn’t wearing mascara? She looked stunning! We took the night portraits by the fountain in Alexandria, Virginia. They blew noisemakers as the clock turned 12:00am on January 1st, 2015.
This is the first post of 2015, and I hope you enjoy it!

My favorite images from 2014

I gotta say, this year has been great. I connected with lots of lovely couples I worked with, and produced, in my opinion, more creative and harmonious images. I look forward to next year with excitement and nervousness. Excitement because I have lots of weddings lined up, and nervousness for the same reason. I come prepared to every wedding ready to give it my best. I want to use new techniques and to stop being scared to try new things that would yield to better and bolder photos. I want to create more fearless photographs…

With that, I leave you with my favorite photos from this year. Enjoy:)

Capitol Hill Engagement Session- Tiffany & Matt

Capitol Hill Engagement Session. After watching National Treasure Book of Secrets for like the millionth time, I was really excited to be shooting inside the Library of Congress for the first time. Yes, I could have come on a tour, but shooting here with a purpose? It was awesome. The inside is majestic of course, as with any historic building in Washington DC. Tiffany and Matt used to live nearby, and even though they are getting married in the desert in Nevada, they wanted their engagement session here. We walked around the area, shooting mainly at the Jefferson building, and heading over to the Shakesperean Library, and then the reflecting pool by the capitol. Anyway, I was cold. They were cold. But can you tell? We had FUN. Enjoy!
