Scott and Kate’s Georgetown Wedding

Scott and Kate were married last October in the Dalghren Chapel on the campus of Georgetown University. I met Kate in Arlington for some quick getting ready photos, followed by Scott and his groomsmen in a classroom on the campus of Georgetown. We found a gorgeous staircase in Healy Hall for Scott and Kate’s first look and after a few quick portraits, we moved into the chapel for their ceremony. One of the things I love about these photos is that you can see from the look on Scott’s face that having seen Kate before the ceremony didn’t detract from the moment he first sees her coming down the aisle. There’s no right or wrong way to do things on your wedding day, but if you’re considering a first look, feel free to ask me about the pros and cons! After the ceremony, Scott and Kate and I headed into downtown DC for a few fun portraits before traveling back into Arlington for their reception at Le Meridien. Scott and Kate had choreographed a surprise first dance, which was a huge hit with their guests, and really got the party started on the right foot. Hope you enjoy!

Devon and Bryan

Devon and Bryan were married in early October in Alexandria, VA on a gorgeous Autumn day. I had one of my partners in crime, Geoff Greene, along for the ride and together we had a blast. Devon and I go all the way back to high school, and I was so thrilled to be a part of her wedding. Geoff and I met up with the crew at the always chic Hotel Monaco to spend a few minutes documenting Devon and Bryan getting ready. Their ceremony was a short limo ride away at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. After the ceremony, we had a lovely walk around Old Town to create some stunning portraits of Devon and Bryan and their attendants. Back at Hotel Monaco, we were treated to a fun and elegant travel-themed reception. Check out some of those gorgeous aeronautical details below! One of my new favorite wedding favors? Individually packaged cake boxes to go. That, my friends, is the way to a tired photographer’s heart at the end of the night. Congrats again Devon and Bryan and enjoy!

Kendall and Dan’s Rainy Day Wedding at Glasgow Farm

Kendall and Dan were married on another rainy September day last Fall at the gorgeous Glasgow Farm in Stafford, VA. Just like Jessica and Mike, these two rolled with the punches, and were ecstatic to have a back up plan for their ceremony. Kendall swapped out her gorgeous flats for more practical, but equally chic rain boots to make the short walk from the house to the barn. After a short ceremony, we stayed in the loft for family portraits and pictures of the newlyweds. After that, the pressure was off, and everyone cut loose through the night. So happy to share these images with you. Enjoy!

Jessica and Mike’s Rainy Wedding at Smith Mountain Lake

Jessica and Mike had planned a gorgeous wedding outside on the property of their cabin at Smith Mountain Lake, the ceremony overlooking their favorite mountain off in the distance. So, it’s only natural that the heaviest rains of the fall happened on their wedding day! Luckily, the barn was already set for the reception, and converted quickly for an intimate ceremony with the rain pounding on the roof. Jessica and Mike took the weather in stride, and focused on enjoying each other and their loved ones on their wedding day. In the meantime, I got to create some awesome images of them celebrating their love. Congrats Jessica and Mike and enjoy!

Chelsea and Ryland’s Woodland Wedding in Stafford, VA

Chelsea and Ryland were married last September on a perfect late summer afternoon. Friends and family all pitched in to transform Curtis Park in Stafford, VA into an idyllic woodland wedding. Small, personal touches really made the wedding special and feel exactly how Chelsea and Ryland imagined. I was only with them for a few hours on the wedding day, but I loved seeing Chelsea and Ryland feel completely relaxed and surrounded by loved ones on their wedding day. River City Wood Fire was on site feeding guests with awesome brick oven pizzas, made to order, and tasting flights of the couple’s favorite beers were served on custom-made wood trays. Their guests loved mingling and playing board games for the afternoon. Enjoy!
