Bobbie & Tim | Flying Bridge wedding | Washington, DC

Bobbie and Tim rocked out some major classic DC views for their wedding, starting at the DC War Memorial and ending the night with some pretty sweet action overlooking the Capitol and Union Station. In-between we dodged tourists at the kite festival and even got some friendly souls to loan us a panda kite for portraits. Then Bobbie and Tim hosted a rockin’ dance party on a rooftop. It was a great night.

They got ready at the Willard Intercontinental, which had some exceptional light going on.

The DC War Memorial is one of three places the National Park Service will allow you to have a wedding ceremony in/near the monuments. Which is cool with me because I love the huge columns and the rotunda that allows for 360* views. It’s also theoretically tucked away in a corner that not too many tourists visit, though during popular weekends, that’s sort of out the window.

The light at the memorial is really out-of-this-world.

The cherry blossoms still weren’t doing their thing, so we just hopped right across the way for portraits.

And then we borrowed a panda kite. Because no one denies a wedding couple.

The Flying Bridge is a brand new venue in DC, on a rooftop, with an amazing view of the Capitol (you can see it below) and Union Station.

People start making funny faces while dancing at a really young age.

And, you know, they just go with it after that.

Not only did Tim get to celebrate his wedding day, but Bobbie arranged for a birthday cupcake for him too.

This was my first time operating a photobooth at a wedding. I don’t think I was quite prepared for how popular it would be.

The props went everywhere.

And this was really neat. At the end of the night, since many of their guests were from out of town, Bobbie and Tim piled everybody in trolley buses and gave them a driving tour of major sights of the city, including the corner where Bobbie and Tim first met. It was pretty tricky to photograph (*dark*!) but I super-dig this triple action frame.

Amber, I just have to share with you the response I got from a friend who I shared this blog post with yesterday. I think it speaks volumes about both how much fun we had at our wedding and how awesome you were at capturing it all…

“Wow! Those are amazing! Anyone looking at those pictures would walk away with three thoughts (not in any particular order): 1) The photographer was fantastic! Really captured the moment; 2) EVERYBODY had a BLAST! and 3) those two kids are CRAZY IN LOVE WITH EACH OTHER!”

Can’t thank you enough! 🙂
