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.

… we Ubered on over to Meridian Hill Park, one of my favorite places to do portraits in the city.

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.

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.

Emily & Jon | DC courthouse wedding

Emily and Jon got married during one of our way-too-late freak rainstorms in the (new ceremony room!) DC courthouse. The city made it hard on me that day – crap weather outside and, if you didn’t know, the National Gallery of Art’s Modern Wing is shutting on down for something like five years, so it’s pretty bare in there. I think we made do juuuuuuust fine. Emily & Jon:
