Elizabeth and Chris - January 9, 2010

What a wonderful way to start off the year with the wedding of Elizabeth and Chris. This event came to me by referral from a lovely family who had used me to photograph their daughter's wedding a couple of years ago. Both the bride and groom's parents and siblings were so kind and gracious, Kait Whitehead, my second shooter, and I felt like family by the end of the evening.

Elizabeth and Chris are both finishing their final year of law school in Baltimore so their plates are quite full. When things calm down for them, I look forward to sitting down with them and designing their album.

Big thanks to Eileen at the Army Navy Country Club for all her help in pulling off this beautiful event. Also, thanks to Rick of the Flower Gallery of Chantilly for his beautiful flowers.

Emily and Simon - December 29, 2009

You've got to love a Tuesday night wedding. Emily and Simon were married in mid-December in Australia, where they live. They came back to Washington, where Emily is from and most of her family lives, for their wedding reception at the Army Navy Country Club in Arlington, Virginia. It is the first time I have photographed the reception and not the ceremony. They had footage from the ceremony in Australia that ran during the cocktail hour, so we all got to see video from what looked to be a very beautiful event the week before.

This was a festive crowd and lots of fun to photograph. Best of luck to Emily and Simon as they return to Australia to start married life together.

Big thanks, as always, to Kait Whitehead, for all her help as my second shooter.
