Allison & David | DC courthouse wedding

Allison and David got hitched at the DC courthouse, amidst a small but joyful group of family and friends. It was a balmy 27* out, so we skipped the outdoors as much as possible and instead hit up the National Gallery’s modern wing, where they have been reinstalling a couple artworks I missed. These two enjoy a good “street” scene, so I concocted a few for them, with the help of the tourists.

I shoot at this museum a lot, so sometimes it’s hard to think of new things to do in the space. But we took some new angles for these two.

A quick jaunt in the classical side.

This girl seemed to have no idea there was a photo shoot happening on either side of her. Modern, right?

Michelle & Jared | Maryland Farm Wedding from 2012

I’m honestly having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that I second shot this wedding with Marcella Treybig all the way back in 2012. Especially since I think about this wedding all the time. Whenever anyone asks me about my “most memorable” wedding or the “coolest thing I’ve ever seen,” I always think of Michelle and Jared. Marcella finally told me I could blog it, and unlike all the other weddings I second-shot from years back, I actually wanted to post this one! Aaaaaaaand, at some point, I threw out all the images. Digital storage is cheap, people – don’t get rid of things just because you think you will never have a use for them again (oy).

Katherine & Kermit | Carnegie Institution for Science wedding | Washington, DC

Katherine and Kermit were married last month at the always-charming, always-classy Carnegie Institution for Science in a room filled with smiles, tears and a hundred candles. You may remember these two from their whacky engagement session. I was ready for more antics, but they were far more interested in cuddling and talking sweet to each other than goofing off for the camera (go figure!). Katherine and Kermit:

Big shout-out to Katie from The Plannery (who almost certainly is a mom by now – congratulations Katie!) and Stephanie and Liza from Studio DBI for planning, designing and executing such a beautiful setting for these two to get hitched in. We started the day at the Jefferson.

You’ll see about seven thousand photos with the flower girls. Here’s #1.
