Emily & Dre | Brookside Gardens wedding

Big thanks to the always amazing Kelly Prizel for having me out to second shoot Emily and Dre's Brookside Gardens wedding... almost a year and a half ago.  (There are a handful of weddings in my backlog that I'm finally getting to - a handful more and we'll be into the latter half of 2012 - yay!)  I just love Brookside.  It's an absolutely stunning place, close enough to DC to catch all the happy out-of-towner excitement to be in the nation's capital, but far enough away from the city to really feel like you are in a beautiful garden oasis (maybe because you actually are).  And then you throw in Emily and Dre being all adorable and thrilled to be getting married... it's a pretty great combination. brookside gardens wedding photographer amber wilkie creative bridal getting ready photos getting ready images from a wedding They had a "first look" at the hotel before we scooted to the gardens. first look at brookside gardens wedding little boy hugging his dad at brookside gardens wedding brookside gardens wedding photography wedding images from brookside gardens ceremony brookside gardens wedding ceremony photography wedding ceremony at brookside gardens wedding ceremony at brookside gardens in silver spring walking down the aisle at brookside gardens wedding ceremony bubbles at brookside gardens wedding wedding portraits at brookside gardens wedding photography at brookside gardens So many great spots for portraits.  But quickly the sun went down and it was party time. first dance at brookside gardens wedding dancing at brookside gardens wedding wedding reception at brookside gardens baby dancing at brookside gardens wedding

Theresa & Joe: Engaged! | Brookside Gardens

I've been doing a lot of driving up to Brookside Gardens recently!  But it's no wonder, since it's such a beautiful, serene place.  So when Joe called me up to do a last-minute engagement session, it was the first place to pop into my head and was completely fitting for this fun, easy-going couple.  They're getting married next weekend and so are busy, busy with planning.  Congratulations you two and have fun on your big day! engagement photographer Amber Wilkie It was miserably, oppressively hot the day we did this shoot (yeah, remember last week and the devil weather?) but Theresa let down her hair for the "bridge shot" - she said she was hoping we would get a bridge shot.  I love making my clients happy! engaged couple kissing on a bridge Oh, the light. engaged couple at brookside gardens portraits of a man and woman in black and white Yowza, girl. portraits at brookside gardens couple at brookside gardens The image on the left is my favorite from the set.  They both look so happy. engaged couple in a tree at brookside gardens coupe in japanese pagoda engaged couple at a japanese pagoda in brookside gardens engaged couple portraits couple having fun in wheaton, md cute couple at brookside gardens Aaaaand the bling. engagement ring on a red flower Congratulations again, you guys!  Best of luck in everything!
