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?

I love the escalator shot! You have such a great eye! I love your photos!

February: Stray Frames | Personal

I consider the fact that I have any images to put in this post a success, seeing as how I spent most of 2014 with absolutely nothing to file under “personal work”. I hosted another photo walk and I’ll host again this month. You should come – all are welcome!

All of the random street images in this post (and all the ones I took last month) are from my photowalk. You see, I’ll take more personal images in a one-hour dedicated photography block than in a month of just seeing what comes. That’s solid advice to all photographers: you gotta work intentionally!

We photowalked at Eastern Market.

This is my husband, in appropriately Mardi Gras colors. Remember that Sunday when it was 70* and beautiful and we all walked around in tank tops for one afternoon? That was so nice…

That’s a coyote! Middle child in the wild canine family – smaller than wolves, bigger than foxes. Super cool to see one, lucky you!

[…] And that wraps up Stray Frames for March. Until next time. (February Stray Frames here). […]

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).
