Sheetal & Ando | Springtime Washington DC engagement

Sheetal & Ando are getting married soon way on back home. DC is a temporary stop for them, so it makes sense for them to capture a slice of their pre-married life right in the District. We wanted to hit a lot of spots, so did an extended engagement session last weekend to sweep up some waterfront views, dog park action and one of the prettiest scenes DC has to offer – the magnolias in full bloom.

They brought along their little love puppy whose name is a Star Trek reference!

They met at sea! How romantic is that? Hence the maritime and water theme here.

We took the doggy to the Shirlington Dog Park to do some candid action.

Mardi Gras in New Orleans: A Photo Essay

I went to school in New Orleans and lived there for a bit after graduation. Katrina hit my senior year of college and I watched the city pick itself back up. New Orleans is a deeply personal place for me, but also a place I hardly know. When you go to college in a town, you really only experience life as a college student, and half of that through a silly self-induced drunken stupor.

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:
