You might recognize the lovely Emily & David from an engagement session I had here on the blog a few months back. They flew me to Kentucky to take engagement portraits in their hometown, and just last month, I flew again, but this time back to DC for their gorgeous wedding at the Hotel Monaco in Washington DC! From Emily’s adorable southern accent, to David’s adoring gaze on Emily, to the old wedding photos of family members before them decorating the reception, this wedding was truly a joy to photograph. And I have to extend thanks as always to the photographic talents of one of my favorite wedding colleagues- Leo Druker- as he helped me all day long and is responsible for several awesome photos below! Thank you Leo, and big congrats to newlyweds Emily & David!!
Jane & Marty are a fantastic couple from the big apple, and during our session I found out that it just so happens they got engaged the same day Stefan and I got married! (What a coincidence!) Even though we live in Denver now and they live in NYC, it turns out we had more than a date in common, we also had a city in common! They used to live in DC as did I, so when they contacted me about doing a session, I was so excited that the date they were available was the same date I would be back in town! The coincidences seemed to end there though as throughout our session we ran into several roadblocks (literally) but we made it work despite lots of traffic, road closures, cars not starting, people running in and out of our shots. I think we came out with some great shots! Congrats Marty and Jane!!!
I am super excited to share this wedding with you for several different reasons. 1. It was the last wedding I did in 2011 and it was an awesome one! 2. Marisa and Brian are SO MUCH FUN (and soooo gorgeous on camera, right!?) 3. I had the help of the amazing Sam Hurd on this wedding, and you’ll see many of his beautiful photographs mixed in here, and lastly, 4. My own wedding is in 10 days. (TEN DAYS PEOPLE!) and so I wanted to leave you with something great to look at for a while as I think it might be a while before I make it back here with an update :) So don’t skimp on the scrolling, this one’s a good one!!!
