Ah, Anastasia and Nick. Teachers (up until recently), NYC dwellers (up until recently), Harvard attendees, book lovers, foodies. They threw a pretty kick-ass wedding – at a rad gallery/event space, with beautiful decor and a bar custom-built for their wedding, tasty tasty foods and more love and happiness than you can shake a stick at, if you were one for shaking a stick at love and happiness. Plus, joy of joys, they arranged for us to do formal pictures inside the Smithsonian American Art Museum. (How do I keep having clients that are into portraits at museums? Because I really, really love doing them at modern art museums.) You love this couple too, right? How could you not.
Anastasia and her girls got ready at the Hotel Monaco. I really dig how the Monaco plays with fabrics and patterns. So did this stuffed pig.
Anastasia carried simple white roses and her bridesmaids had these fantastic green things from Amaryllis.
Rockin’ to some old-school jams.
And bein’ gorgeous. A girl can do both.
This is like like 50% more portraits than I ever show. Suck it up – this was awesome.
Then it was go time.
Longview Gallery was such an awesome place to shoot. I loved playing with the art and how clean the space was otherwise.
Amaryllis and the team at Ritzy Bee Events did a beautiful job with the decor. Anastasia and Nick are big foodies, so they had farm tables with edible plants and rustic touches.
Wedding photographers. They are always trying to make your life harder! But you can get them back by posting their photo-bombing on the internet for all to see. Nice work, Sarah.
I would never have used this word before Spencer’s workshop, but this wedding had more than one beautiful palette.
A couple after my own heart. No cake, just lots of pie.
The real purpose for mason jars, amiright?
Rockin’ out with DJ Atticus.
Woo! Congratulations you two! It was a great pleasure to document your wedding.
