Cherry Blossoms | Washington, DC Wedding Photographer

When I heard it was going to snow on the cherry blossoms, which only bloom for a little bit of time each year (and generally long after it’s stopped snowing), I got very, very excited.  When I couldn’t convince any of my friends or clients to get out this morning, I decided to go myself.  Sometimes you have to be your own bride.

In the end, I was glad I couldn’t talk anyone into it because the one inch we were supposed to get was far closer to a dusting and had melted off by the time we got down there at 9am.  My vision was dashed and the sun was out – not what I had in mind!  But since we were out there in our wedding gear, we decided to go for it anyway.

You are the only person I know who can rock a D80 like D3. Awesome work.


There is nothing that picks up my mood faster than puppies.  So I thought I’d leave y’all with a little doggie love here as I run off to second shoot a wedding.  Enjoy your Saturday!

And one more thing that always cheers *me* up…

Wiffle Ball on the National Mall

Sometimes it feels like college again.  Like when your friends and their friends and their friends all get together on the National Mall and play wiffle ball.  And then you go play beer pong in a basement.  It’s not quite like college, though, because now there are married people.  And babies.

Just a few from a recent outing.  These are good people.  Colin and Sara:

one of my favorite couples ever - in black and white

George and John:

And here’s Sai, proving that sometimes it is better to be behind the camera.

And, like I said, there were babies.  Okay, one baby.  But a baby cute enough to equal the attention-grabbingness of four babies.
