Snowy fashion photo shoot | Arlington, VA

So in addition to being a brilliant wedding photographer, I’m also a fashion maven.



Here’s how this went: The weather people said “big storm on Tuesday!” and I got excited because it was the first real snow of the season (haha, funny that). I went on the Facebooks and posted: “HEY! We’re going to wake up to snow tomorrow. Who wants to shoot?” And from there, somehow a little fun in the snow ballooned into a quite massive undertaking complete with event planner, hair and makeup artist, videographer and two models!


It ended up being way snowier and colder than was predicted, so the roads were a big mess. Luckily for me, we planned to meet at my house. Unluckily for everyone else, we didn’t plan to meet at theirs. Poor Gabby from Alison Harper & Co. got stuck in the snow and we had to come rescue her!

Molly & Brian | Snowtober wedding at the National Press Club

2011 was kind of a nutty year for wedding weather! First we rocked the Saturday hurricane and then it for-real snowed in October (basically unheard of, for all you non-locals). The ingenious Cassidy DuHon had me out to second-shoot Molly and Brian’s relaxed but snowy wedding at the National Press Club. Lucky for us, she loves snow and we all ran outside for just a minute while the white stuff fell all around. Rad.

Brian and his guys were rocking these glasses all night and kept saying something about Tebow… sometimes I feel I’m missing an entire world of pop-culture references by ignoring sports.

And then it started snowing!

And it was still snowing when we had a bit of down time, so Molly wanted to go outside and shoot – yay!
