Michelle & Jared | Maryland Farm Wedding from 2012

I’m honestly having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that I second shot this wedding with Marcella Treybig all the way back in 2012. Especially since I think about this wedding all the time. Whenever anyone asks me about my “most memorable” wedding or the “coolest thing I’ve ever seen,” I always think of Michelle and Jared. Marcella finally told me I could blog it, and unlike all the other weddings I second-shot from years back, I actually wanted to post this one! Aaaaaaaand, at some point, I threw out all the images. Digital storage is cheap, people – don’t get rid of things just because you think you will never have a use for them again (oy).

Katherine & Kermit | Carnegie Institution for Science wedding | Washington, DC

Katherine and Kermit were married last month at the always-charming, always-classy Carnegie Institution for Science in a room filled with smiles, tears and a hundred candles. You may remember these two from their whacky engagement session. I was ready for more antics, but they were far more interested in cuddling and talking sweet to each other than goofing off for the camera (go figure!). Katherine and Kermit:

Big shout-out to Katie from The Plannery (who almost certainly is a mom by now – congratulations Katie!) and Stephanie and Liza from Studio DBI for planning, designing and executing such a beautiful setting for these two to get hitched in. We started the day at the Jefferson.

You’ll see about seven thousand photos with the flower girls. Here’s #1.

We got these over to the Carnegie so they could say hello.

2014 Year in Review

We did it, folks. We completed another year. In 2014, I documented dozens of unions – full of joy and complexity and faith and love. Some were small affairs – some even small enough that I was the only witness. Some were massive throwdowns. All were really, really great.

I said it last year and the year before (and the year before that), and I’ll say it again now: I have the best job and the best clients. Here’s a question I get all the time from people at cocktail parties and the like (because I’m super-fancy and I go to cocktail parties alllll the time): “do you have any great stories about bridezillas?” I always disappoint them because no, I really don’t. Literally every single couple I have ever worked with has been easygoing, genuinely in love with each other (as far as I can tell!) and, well, nice.
