Eliza & Erick | Baltimore Museum of Industry Wedding

I feel a little pressure to describe the awesomeness that is Eliza and Erick, but simultaneously feel I could never quite do their wedding justice with words. Fortunately, I took a gazillion images and I can just hit you with them. Like this:

Ok so, if you know anything about me and my work, you know I went freakin’ bananas over that airplane in the ceiling. See 80% of their reception photos below for further proof. Also excellent: this huge industrial sculpture thing. So the Baltimore Museum of Industry takes a huge leap over every other venue I’ve worked at to become my very favorite venue ever. It’s awesome. There are industrial things everywhere and we got to shoot in the galleries and, did I mention the airplane in the ceiling?

Kristi & Tom | DC courthouse wedding | Maggiano’s

Kristi and Tom beat my previous record for most people crammed into the ceremony room at the DC courthouse. What can you do when too many people love you? Fortunately, the courthouse marriage people didn’t feel the need to enforce their 15-person limit, and these two got their wed on.

After family pictures they had to run, so we did the ultimate-fast version of portraits. The courthouse ain’t so bad, amiright?

Then we headed over to Maggiano’s for foods and cakes and lots of toasts.

And pause. That is an eight-bit cake. And their invitation says “leveling up”! How frickin’ rad.

Maggiano’s has some pretty swank ballrooms.

Kristi and Tom kissed every single time their guests clinked the glasses.

Congratulations, guys!

Marriage Equality: eff yes!

I keep restarting this paragraph. There are many things I feel about the Supreme Court’s decision yesterday. We’ve come so far and still have so very far to go. But today we get to celebrate – thrill at the rainbows appearing everywhere, including the White House. It was about damn time and the win is hard-earned and well-deserved, for LGBTQ Americans and straight Americans: we watched our country turn an important leaf yesterday.
