Jenny & David’s Engagement Shoot

I have privilege of working with a fabulous couple on their November 2014 wedding. Even in the short time we have been working together, I have been so impressed by their thoughtfulness — both to others and to each other. They are a joy to work with and I am so excited for their Big Day! Here are some beautiful shots of their engagement — featured on United With Love — and taken by the talented Dani P. S. Photography.

Best wishes and congratulations Jenny and David!

Beautiful Fall Wedding at Holy Trinity and Old Ebbitt Grill

Photographed beautifully by Currie Fitzhugh, Xan and Matt’s wedding was a beautiful event!  They got ready at the Willard, had the ceremony at Holy Trinity, and the reception took place at the rooftop and Atrium of Old Ebbitt. I adored working with them and their wonderful families and wish them all the best! Check out the wedding on Currie’s blog.

A Beautiful Decatur House Wedding

I had such an amazing time working with a special couple on their Fall wedding at Decatur House in Washington, DC. Danielle and Jason did an incredible job in thinking thoughtfully through all of the details of their wedding. I especially loved their “getaway” after the ceremony on a tandem bike! They even gave bike bells to each guest to ring while they peddled away. So cool!

Congratulations, Danielle and Jason! Thank you for allowing me to be part of your special day!

A Beautiful Fall Wedding at Carnegie Institution

I had the great pleasure of working with Jessica and Clayton on their fall wedding at the Carnegie Institution. I loved the creativity and beautiful detail ideas that Jessica and her mother had for the wedding and the way we were able to bring them all to life on the day of the event. Jessica and Clayton are a beautiful couple and I wish them much happiness as they begin their new life together!

A Fall Mayflower Hotel Wedding

I had the great privilege of working with Prisca and Eric as they planned their September 2012 Mayflower wedding. As you can see, they are a stunning couple. What the photos don’t show, however, is how absolutely kind and special they are. It was a joy working with them and I wish them much happiness!

Congratulations, Prisca & Eric!

Lt Governor and Mrs Anthony Brown: A Beautiful Maryland Wedding

I had the great honor of working with the Lieutenant Governor of Maryland and his fiancee Karmen Bailey-Walker on their May wedding. The couple was married at the University of Maryland Chapel and hosted a reception at the Ballroom at the University of Maryland Conference Center. A daytime wedding, the cocktail-style reception allowed guests to mix and mingle in the Ballroom as well as enjoy the beautiful patio space. The color palette featured golds, creams, and touches of deep red. It was a beautiful day in honor of a beautiful couple! Congratulations Lt Governor and Karmen!

A Colorful Longview Gallery wedding

I had the privilege of working with Marisa and Dan on their wedding last year. They are an amazing couple, individually and together. I loved the sense of humor and style that they brought to the planning process. It resulted in a really beautiful, fun event.

The bride’s vision for the reception was a festive Mexican-influenced style. We focused on bright colors and the bride brought in personal touches to make the reception even more unique. Longview Gallery was a great backdrop for this intimate event and Chris Baltazar captured the day beautifully.

Congratulations, Marisa & Dan!

A Beautiful Halcyon House Wedding

I had the honor of working with a beautiful couple last year, Camilla and Richard, on their August wedding. The ceremony took place at St Catherine of Siena church in Great Falls and the reception followed at the Halcyon House in DC (which is sadly no longer booking weddings). The bride thought of every detail and brought beauty and creativity to each part of the day. One of the highlights was the a cappella group that performed at cocktail hour. They were amazing. The bride, a nearly professional baker herself, carefully selected desserts from local bakeries which made for a special treat for all of the guests. The bride and groom, who looked stunning that day, were such a wonderful pleasure to work with.

Congratulations, Camilla & Richard!
