Quyen & Adam | DC Cherry Blossom Wedding at Artisphere

We were delighted to capture Quyen and Adam’s wedding story. The cherry blossoms at the tidal basin in DC were in peak bloom!  I first met them at their friend’s wedding a few years ago. I was shooting that wedding and they were so pleased with the results that they decided to hire us. A lot of our clients come to us this way and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Here’s a glimpse into their pictures from their ceremony at St. Timothy’s Catholic Church in Chantilly to their pictures from Artisphere in Arlington. One of the photos of the bride among the DC cherry blossoms made Huffington Post’s Must See Wedding photos of 2014. Pretty much your perfect DC Cherry Blossom wedding!

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.

An Engagement: David & Lyndsi part 2

Surprise on The Hill

It was so gorgeous outside for my shoot today for World Vision & Genesis Photos on Capitol Hill.
A seemingly normal day until you-know-who showed up : )

Simmons jumped on the chance to sing to the oldies–‘America the Beautiful’–when he saw this choir group on the steps of the Capitol.

In all seriousness, Simmons had such a great attitude and so much charisma–contageous actually. He helped support the Fit Kids Act which just passed yesterday and was up here to celebrate and continue to raise awareness about the importance of exercise and healthy living.
