DC Skyline Wedding in Mahogany and Purple

This couple tied the knot a few weeks ago at the Key Bridge Marriott.  Gorgeous views were outside every window! This early spring wedding was a blast to photograph with such great people.

Sunday Afternoon Garden Wedding

Wow, what a couple! I had the pleasure to attend and document this sentimental and beautiful wedding this past weekend.  Never before have I seen a huppah as gorgeous and meaningful as theirs. This ceremony included ribbon hand fasting, jumping the broom, and heartfelt self written exchanging of vows.

The Hindu Engagement Ceremony:

I had the honor a few weeks back to photography this couples engagement ceremony, it was beautiful! One of my favorite things about being a photographer is getting to take a peek into others worlds, their lifestyles, and rituals.

Happy 6 more weeks of WINTER!

Well, looks like we are going to have MORE WINTER.  I’m so over being cooped up inside.  I went out shooting when we were having our super cold spell and it was just too much! But, I  didn’t come home empty handed, here’s some photos…  Image

 

This was a SilverCore Photographers Collective assignment we gave ourselves called 80 Sq. inches. (Thats 1 roll of film) I covered about 8 sq. blocks with my 1 roll.  It’s a great assignment to give yourself when your feeling out of touch with your creative side, it’s a real challenge!
