Juliet + Michael: Mandarin Oriental Hotel

On Saturday, I had the privilege to photograph Juliet + Michael’s classic wedding. It was a busy day, but everything fell into place perfectly. You guys, Juliet planned her wedding while living in Alabama AND working nights as a cardio vascular surgeon…ALL of it. She even did her own photography timeline and it looked just […]

Kaitlyn + Jordan Engagement: Old Town Alexandria

Kathy + Reynold: President Lincoln’s Cottage

Did you all know about President Lincoln’s Cottage in DC? I had no idea it was there! It’s gorgeous and has so much history on that site. It was there that Lincoln developed the Emancipation Proclamation! And it still houses veterans. I think they said the oldest veteran to live there still is over 100 […]

Caitlin + Paul: American Pharmacists Association

You wouldn’t think when you hear the name “American Pharmacists Association” that it’s a wedding venue. But oh man, it’s such a classic DC spot to be married. It’s right across the street from the Lincoln Memorial and has that gorgeous marble architecture that is so so useful in photographs (hello, natural reflectors!). Caitlin and […]
