Sultana & Mark | Peirce Mill engagement session | Washington, DC

Sultana and Mark have a secret. It’s not that they’re getting married. We romped up to Peirce Mill last week for their engagement session and took a spin through Rock Creek and whatever the other creek is that runs into it. Peirce Mill is a great little spot. And no one was there because it was about to rain. The secret is this: they’re superheroes.

Their super-power? Making it not rain for exactly the amount of time we needed to do their photo shoot.

Congratulations, you guys!

Alejandra & Bassem | Antrim 1844 wedding | Taneytown, Maryland

Ale and Bassem were married at the massively pretty Antrim 1844 Country House Hotel up by Gettysburg. It was all kinds of rainy on the drive up, but it cleared just in time for portraits outside and the most wonderful golden light for their lovely outdoor ceremony. This pair of doctors with infectious personalities had the house in stitches, made everybody saw “awwww” and generated a dance fever (I tried so hard to think of more doctor puns but I’m spent). Ale and Bassem:

Antrim has an amazing bridal suite for all the ladies to rock out in.

Many thanks as always to my lovely second Julia, who took a number of very, very good photos at this wedding, including this handsome portrait of Bassem.

We did lots of photos of Ale and her ladies and Bassem and his menfolk before the ceremony. The clouds had parted by then and a truly spectacular evening light fell on everything.

Kate & Jimmy |intimate wedding photography | Washington, DC

Kate and Jimmy were married in the woods, at the very spot where Jimmy proposed. These brilliant folks actually take advantage of the lockhouses along the C&O Canal, which along with being nice vacation spots, are really lovely places to have a small wedding. They ate BBQ, got dressed up, marched down to a secluded spot by the water and went on and tied the knot. Kate and Jimmy:

Lockhouse #10 is the biggest on the canal, but still plenty cosy.

Marriage accomplished, we romped down to the water and back up the hill for a few portraits before these two whisked away to what I can only imagine was a rockin’ good wedding dinner.
