Raspberry Plain Leesburg wedding : Leo & Lisa

Leo and Lisa are in love and you can’t tell me otherwise. You’ll see that in every photo. Ever since I met with Leo and Lisa I knew that their wedding was going to be fun. Leo is about the most outgoing, kind, and fun person you could meet. Lisa is about the most compassionate, kind, and lovely woman you could meet. She left her job at one of the largest internet companies in the country to become a caretaker for a young lady with special needs. Leo, you married up my friend and you’re in good company. Present company included. Congratulations Leo & Lisa. Here are a few sneak peek photos from their Raspberry Plain Leesburg wedding.

DC Greek Wedding Photos: Demetrios and Angela’s Saint Sophia and Fairmont Hotel Greek Wedding

Tradition, elegance, and did I mention tradition? Demetrios and Angela’s Greek wedding celebration was full of ornate details, color, and life.  The ceremony at Saint Sophia Greek Orthodox Church was gorgeous. If you’ve never been to a Greek Orthodox wedding ceremony, then do yourself a favor and befriend some Greeks! Part of my family is from Cyprus so I’ve gotten to experience the vibrancy, personality, and life of Greek culture first-hand. Their wedding was celebrated at one of our favorite venues, The Fairmont Hotel which somehow managed to contain non-stop Greek dancing, music, and money dances! I think a Greek wedding might be the only place where everyone can dance on all that money without blinking an eye.

Congratulations Demetrios and Angela! Thank you for inviting us to tell your wedding story.

DC Wedding Photos: Chris & Jessica’s Georgetown Dahlgren Chapel and Anderson House Wedding

Georgetown University roots run deep. Half of the wedding party were Alumni as well as some of their parents. The other half of the wedding party were doctors which lead to some interesting discussions before the wedding. But, back to Jessica and Chris and 130 of their closest friends. They married at Dahlgren Chapel at Georgetown University and their reception was held at the always elegant Anderson House. We made sure to take wedding photos at Heally Hall, Copley Hall, and of course the ladies spent some time in the fountain. From Jessica’s ornate dress to the bow ties and cuff-links you will see their roaring 20’s theme throughout. Dare I say that some of the photo booth props we brought were from the 20’s?

Congratulations Chris and Jessica! Thank you for inviting us to tell your wedding story.

DC Engagement Photos: Chris and Jessica.

Chris and Jessica’s sunrise engagement session at the tidal basin was another super early morning where it paid off to sacrifice my beauty rest for the sake of great light. We made the rounds at the tidal basin and The Jefferson Memorial. So when the garbage crew parked their truck in the background of our photos we turned the problem into the solution–a garbage glam session. I love it when my clients are willing laugh at the serendipity of life with me. I’m really looking forward to their wedding at Dahlgren Chapel at Georgetown University with their reception at The Anderson House. It will be a lot of fun to capture their roaring 20’s theme.

DC Engagement photos: Jason and Anna

Fact: Spring arrived fashionably late for 2013.

Fact: The Cherry Blossoms followed suit.

Fact: You can’t take a bad photo of Jason and Anna.

The Cherry blossoms are finally at peak after at least a 10-day delay. So get out there in the next few days to take in the sights. Hopefully they will withstand Thursday’s predicted rain so I can capture them in my next session this weekend with Chris and Jessica.

DC Engagement pictures: Brad and Katie

Sometimes when you wake up for a sunrise shoot and you get clouds. When life throws you lemons you bring the sweetener so you can enjoy some lemonade. Some prefer sugar, I prefer a big pretty light to sweeten the deal. Thankfully the sun made an appearance about 30 minutes after sunrise. I can’t wait to shoot Brad & Katie’s wedding in August. middleburg-engagement-photos-01 middleburg-engagement-photos-02 middleburg-engagement-photos-03 middleburg-engagement-photos-04 middleburg-engagement-photos-05

The Newseum: Where journalists get hugs

The Newseum is a mystical place where the First Amendment of the Constitution is hallowed and journalists are heroes. I was invited to lecture about visual storytelling at the Newseum a few weeks ago in conjunction with Nikon’s Photo Day. I’m used to teaching at workshops among other photojournalists and photography geeks so it was a new challenge to speak to such a diverse audience. I quite enjoyed it.

Lessons in Photography: Don’t be "that" photographer

Lessons in Wedding Photography etiquette: What is that smell?

Lesson 1: Avoid hiring a photographer who stands near or on stage and in front of everything and everyone. Lesson 2: Avoid hiring a videographer who stands on stage with their tripod to capture said inconsiderate photographer. Lesson 3: Buy spark-certified fire-retardant hair product.
