Abby & Christian | Clarendon Ballroom wedding | Arlington, VA

Abby and Christian were my last wedding couple in the United States and they took me out on a rockin’ note! Clarendon Ballroom hosted these two for ceremony and reception, complete with big white Chinese lanterns in the ceiling and a kick-ass band to stir up the dance floor.

We started the lovely Casal’s De Spa and Salon in Clarendon.

I was very lucky to have Julia along with me for one last day.

It stopped raining just in time for us to do portraits outside. But first we had to hit up the metro.

Abby’s dad is a huge selfie fan, so I insisted he grab one with me, too.

We rocked out a couple of hardworking trees at a nearby park.

Kelly & Adam | Wedding-day portraits | National Gallery of Art | Washington, DC

Kelly and Adam rang me juuuuust as I was about to close my DC books forever, and gave me one last great shot at the National Gallery. I’ve been shooting portraits in there for years, so it was nice to photo my last intimate wedding-ish there. We ran by some old favorites, played with some stuff in new locations and then jumped outside for some quickie fall-foliage action. Kelly and Adam:

This piece was downstairs before renovation, in some crappy light. Now they’ve got it next to the giant windows in the back. Score!

Probably my most requested photo. Who knows if I will ever make it again? *tear*

I loved Kelly’s swank cream coat so we rocked some fashion-modelly stuff with the reflecty sculpture.

Congratulations, you guys!

Drew & Chris | Baltimore Museum of Industry wedding

Drew and Chris were married at the still-extremely-awesome Baltimore Museum of Industry, against a backdrop of painterly sunset light. Then they blew it up, airplane-in-the-ceiling style with lots of laughs, a few tears, macaroni-and-cheese and a big dash of proud mamas. Drew and Chris:

We started the day at the Lord Baltimore Hotel.

Marilyn approved of Drew’s sick Grecian goddess dress.

And at the BMI, of course, you have to play in the galleries.

I’m almost out of here, so I can say obnoxious things like: I feel bad for everyone who has a wedding at BMI and doesn’t hire me to photograph it.
