Cristina & Kyle | Cherry blossom engagement session | Smithsonian Air and Space Museum | Washington, DC

Cristina and Kyle are getting married on a beautiful beach in Southern California, but they live on this side of the country in a place with four seasons. We took advantage of one of Washington’s prettiest with the cherry blossoms last week. Their other desired location was the Air and Space Museum, for some mandatory nerding out. I’m always happy to oblige such requests.

A quick outfit change and we rolled over to the iconic blossoms.

D & K | Dupont Circle intimate wedding | Washington

D & K were married at Tiffany Newman’s adorable chapel in Dupont Circle, surrounded by tons of friends and family to cheer them on. These two made my job eeeeeeeasy.

Tiffany has the most wonderful calming presence. She’s a great alternative to the courthouse for those looking to get well and married already.

Somebody was riffing them about being too sexy during the first kiss.

My clients are always trying to do like on the left, but I never let them get away with it for long. These two could obviously rock the GQ look also.

I really like this one. Thanks for sharing!

Emily & Zach | Woodend Nature Sanctuary Wedding | Silver Spring, MD

Emily and Zach were married at one of my favorite venues in the area, Woodend Nature Sanctuary. Not ones to let a little rain get them down, they had an emotional and very sweet ceremony filled with tears and laughter and then danced the night away. These two really know how to take care of each other.

Big shout-out to Katie from The Plannery, who helped make Emily and Zach’s day totally beautiful and flawless. She is such a great planner, guys – hire her.

Thanks, as always, to the wonderful Julia for all the great extra angles and chilling-with-the-boys time.

The “bridal suite” at Woodend is really pretty and it has this ginormous mirror for excellent composition and also checking-yourself-out-ness.

A few hugs before Emily rushed off to first look.
