It must be yellow dress week because after Natalie’s gorgeous mustard-colored silk number yesterday, I was thrilled to show up at Glen Echo Park this evening to see Liz in her own adorable flirty little yellow dress. I met Liz & Chris for the very first time today when we met for their engagement session. I have photographed the weddings of 2 of Liz’s friends from law school but we’ve had a strictly email relationship until today. So I was so happy to get to know these two a little bit and realize that they are just as fun and bubbly and adorable as they seemed online. One thing that they had requested was that we do “a jumping picture” since that’s sort of their thing…jumping pictures on vacation, when they visit new places, pretty much wherever. Of course I was happy to oblige and boy are they excellent jumpers as you’ll see below. With the wedding coming up in August at Keswick Hall in Charlottesville, VA…I can’t wait to see how much fun these two are going to be on their wedding day. Enjoy.

    Beautiful photos. The last one is my favorite. The lighting on the pavillion, the color of the sky and clouds and, of course, Chris and Liz – fantastic.

    DANG I just lost my whole comment. You guys both look like models, it’s insane. Where is the “ut ketasenan, HAHAHAAAAAA” pose we did at the barristers ball 2 years ago? (I have no idea how to spell that, but I attempted a phonetic translation). Hopefully at least Chris remembers this!

  13. Sarah says:

    Love, love, love!!!

  14. Janet says:

    Great shots! The b&w are my favorites!

  15. Owen says:

    Pictures look great! I especially enjoy the very first pic, Chris, where your hand is effeminately balanced on your hip. I also dig the one where it looks like you may get it on at any moment…if I didn’t know you both so well, it would be kinda hot.

    In all seriousness, Liz, you look beautiful and happy. Chris, you must work out. Congrats!

  16. Juanillo says:

    I’m looking forward to meeting the man behind the camera. Justin, the image of Liz & Chris on the porch with the painting above steals the show. Bravo!

  17. Jen says:

    All the different background choices are awesome. And I especially like the saucy “making out by the train” shots ;) Thanks for sharing!

  18. Julie says:

  19. Jenn says:

    Wow! Gorgeous shots of a gorgeous couple! So sweet and playful at the same time. You really captured their essence. Love them (the pictures and the couple)!

  20. caryl says:

    These have captured both Liz and Chris to a t – can’t wait to see what you do with the wedding pics!

  21. Carole Swaney Misler says:

    What can I say–gorgeous couple, gourgeous photos. I know the wedding pictures will be even better, if that is possible. You have real talent.


  22. Alyson Krogh says:

    I’m impressed with the photographer’s variety as well. I can tell she has a passion for portrait photography. Nice work! It certainly helps to have good looking people to shoot, too!

  23. Elaine Weiner (aka "Gammy says:

    They are all wonderful. They capture their inner spirit and enthusiasm.
    Liz’s Gammy and soon-to-be Chris’s “Gsmmy” (or whatever he chooses to call me).

  24. Julie says:

    I love all the different colors. Definitely suits your playful and vibrant personalities.

    you guys are sexy supermodels and the photos are gorgeous (obviously) – i think my favorite is the bench hand-holding one, though its hard to deny the smooching ones for the hot-damn factor or the jumping ones for classic liz & chris. mazel tov all around :) ps – sorry my note is late :(
