Katherine & Kermit | National Portrait Gallery engagement | Washington, DC

Katherine and Kermit are all kinds of awesome. After scrapping a National Mall / monuments rodeo with their engagement photos, they switched up on me for the National Portrait Gallery and American Art Museum which, in my humble opinion, is a way more interesting place to do engagement photos. Kermit is goofy as hell. It’s very rare that I don’t have to yell silly things at my clients to make them laugh. Kermit was plenty silly all by himself. They seem pretty good together, these two.

He really did all this by himself.

We decided to call this one “between two Bushes.”

Apparently this is an important piece of art. There were actual people looking at it that we annoyed (for the record, I try not to do that – I just didn’t realize).

Meredith & Shahrooz | George Washington’s River Farm Wedding | Alexandria, Virginia

Meredith and Shahrooz were married at the classically beautiful River Farm in Alexandria, Virginia. The weather was perfect, the light was amazing and there were four adorable flower girls, who I took way too many photos of and am currently including way too many in this blog post. Meredith and Shahrooz were relaxed, gracious and had a pretty seriously great wedding.

We started the day at their home.

But quickly scooted on to River Farm for dress and things. It was a tornado of ladies and girls getting prettified. Too much for some.

Big thanks, as always, to Julia. I love this simple portrait of Shahrooz. It helped that those cufflinks were incredibly difficult to take on and off.

So I’d heard lots about River Farm but I had no idea how truly beautiful it is. The gardens are so picturesque.

Great job. You rocked it. Love the venue, btw.

Jill & Mike | Old Stone House Georgetown wedding | Washington, DC

Jill and Mike were married in the lovely gardens at the Old Stone House, the oldest building in DC. Surrounded by their closest and officiated by one of my favorite officiants in the region – to harp music, no less! – they did the damn thing, then partied it up Georgetown-style.

Did you know you can get married here? Apparently it’s really affordable, but open to the public during the ceremony.
