What a trip to DC this has been! I have 2 weddings anxiously waiting to be blogged, but tonight I bring you the 4th and final engagement session of the week. I actually just met Cynthia and Ross for the first time tonight so it was a get-to-know-eachother/ engagement session. We met at the new house they just bought in the beautiful Glover Park neighborhood of DC. The house is undergoing some renovations right now but it suprisingly made for some pretty cool backgrounds for some of the portraits. Their adorable dog Scamp participated in a few and then Cynthia, Ross and I just bummed around the neighborhood for a while. A big thank you to Sara Muchnick from Engaging Affairs for bringing us together. Cynthia & Ross, thank you for being great sports about my silly ideas and I'm so looking forward to your wedding! As a fellow Mini owner, I

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
Natalie and Mike are a delightful couple from Chicago and came to me via Laura Weatherly from Engaging Affairs... and as soon as I met them, I just knew we had to work together. I'm super excited about their wedding next April at the brand new W Hotel in Washington DC. Now I grew up in DC and have shot a lot of weddings in a lot of different venues and most of them tend to be a little more on the traditional side, so I for one am thrilled that the W is going to bring a little more modern flair to this city. Since every couple I work with is different, I like to consider their individual personalities when selecting locations for the engagement sessions. Since Natalie and Mike are a fun couple who toe the line between traditional and modern, I thought it would be fun to start
Boy have I just been an editing machine these days and I still have tons of new shoots to blog so here is the 3rd and final part of Bershan & David's beautiful wedding. This part includes the reception which was held at the US Chamber of Commerce. Bershan changed into dress #2 halfway through the reception and they shared a "2nd dance". Legendary floral designer Preston Bailey was in attendance at this wedding and I finally had the pleasure of meeting him. David gave a beautiful toast to his bride as his son Jack comforted Bershan. So sweet! I have still have 4 unblogged engagement sessions from the past few weeks so check back soon for more.
Well I'm back safe and sound in LA and there is a lot going on here. Yesterday, Ellen and I signed a lease on a new loft studio space that we are going to be sharing so that means lots of furniture shopping and decorating and moving computers around etc. I'm excited to post some pictures of the space as it comes together. More of that to come soon. But today I want to bring you part 2 of Bershan & David's fabulous DC wedding last weekend. Did Regina do an amazing job on this ceremony decor or what? It's quite a view from the rooftop of the Hay Adams. I especially love this one of Bershan's dad right before the ceremony. It was an extremely beautiful and emotional ceremony Hope you enjoy these and I'll be back soon with part 3!
