Anna & Justin | Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center | Eastern Shore, Maryland

Anna and Justin were married at the incredibly beautiful Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center out on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. In my many years of shooting and the 100+ weddings I’ve seen, they were the first to have a fun run (the concept of running being fun is new as well!) and also the first to have an Easter egg hunt! They planned such a wonderful, relaxed, nature-filled day for their guests.

Look how much fun running is!

I was cracking up at the incredible hiding skills of the egg-hiders. To be fair, most of the kids were toddlers.

After a relaxing morning enjoying the scenery, weather and location, our heroes packed up and headed to the Kent Island Hilton Garden Inn.

Aom & Larry | The Mason Inn wedding | Fairfax, VA

Aom and Larry had their wedding amidst a flurry of languages, travelers with long plane rides and about as much joy and laughter as one can pack into an event. These two were beaming from ear to ear the entire day.

We started and ended the day at The Mason Inn, a very lovely little conference center for George Mason University. Aom and Larry were staying in this tricked-out suite with lots of cool art for me to play with.

Two notes: Aom and her sister did everybody’s hair and they did a freakin’ amazing job of it. Two, Dad helped her get dressed, which is pretty rare for weddings I’ve seen. I was really amused by how puzzled he looks here.

Cristina & Kyle | Cherry blossom engagement session | Smithsonian Air and Space Museum | Washington, DC

Cristina and Kyle are getting married on a beautiful beach in Southern California, but they live on this side of the country in a place with four seasons. We took advantage of one of Washington’s prettiest with the cherry blossoms last week. Their other desired location was the Air and Space Museum, for some mandatory nerding out. I’m always happy to oblige such requests.

A quick outfit change and we rolled over to the iconic blossoms.
