Miranda & Josh | Mexican Cultural Institute wedding | Washington, DC

Miranda and Josh got married at the resplendent (that’s a new word on this blog!) Mexican Cultural Institute last month, amid scads of friends and family and minus frills and buffet seating and white dresses. These two threw exactly the party they wanted with all the things they needed – good food and drink, lots of folks, an amazing venue and none of the fuss. Miranda and Josh:

Miranda skipped a giant white fluffy dress for this elegant azure number.

The Mexican Cultural Institute has these amazing murals in the stairwell, echoing the Federal Buildings in Mexico City. When we met before the wedding to walk through the venue, I was floored (walled?).

And the rest of the house is really sweet too – that’s an organ on the right!

Cherry Blossom Mini Sessions | 2015

We had a blast last year getting our cherry blossom mini sessions on, so I’m taking the plunge again this year. Cherry blossom minis!


Quick, painless and beautiful photos with the iconic blossoms, at half the price of my normal portrait sessions. Write me to reserve a spot!

Here’s a few favorites from last year’s sold-out mini sessions:

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?
