Juliet & Mike | Montrose Park intimate wedding | Washington, DC

I’ve known Mike for the better part of a decade, ever since I was renting a tiny room with crappy A/C and very charming housemates in Del Ray. We’re all married now and having babies and acting like straight grown-ups! It’s been my pleasure to document the nuptials over the years.

Juliet and Mike gathered together their families under a big tree in Montrose Park and together with their children said some serious I-Dos.

Juliet and Mike spurned the courthouse in favor of a quiet park, on a just-warm-enough sunny summer day. Tiffany from MarriageDC, with her ever-calm presence, officiated.

Baby M slept through the whole ceremony but woke up right on cue for pictures and adorableness.

Ceremony and portraits a wrap, we scooted to Restaurant Nora so these legally-wed folks could get their eat on.

June & July: Stray Frames | Personal

Ok I’m a slacker on Stray Frames and, frankly, a slacker on personal photos for these two months. I even went all the way over to Europe and barely cracked the camera. What can I say? I’ve got a husband to take the cellphone snapshots and also a husband I’d have to drag around to wait patiently on me to get the street stuff I want (I generally leave the postcard-photos to the masters and those that have the luxury of time).

Two other photo-related things I did in June: a nekkid photoshoot for me (ostensibly for George but who are we kidding) and a “couple shoot” with the both of us. Sarah Williams from This Rad Love did both and I couldn’t love them more.

(There’s literally no other photo from this shoot that doesn’t have some of my ladybits showing. Rawr.)

Melissa & Jacob | Annapolis wedding chapel

Melissa and Jacob got married on their ten-year anniversary at the charming Annapolis Wedding Chapel. Their parents came in to witness and/or perform the ceremony (Jacob’s dad is a minister!), then we hit the town looking for some of that old Annapolis charm. We found it.

It was just so freakin’ hot on Monday, but fortunately there’s indoor space at the chapel.

When you’ve been with someone a long time, you start to make the same facial expressions. (And other things you notice as a people photographer.)

Melissa and Jacob do the best deadpan I’ve seen yet. I typically have my couples do one or two of these “weird” photos in case they’re into that. These two really have great serious faces.
