Heather & Isaiah’s Wedding Day

We would like to express our thanks to Heather, Isaiah, their families and their wedding party for a truly wonderful day.

Everyone contributed to this day from the first moments of delicate makeup, amazing hand made bouquets, an elementary school class of very proud ring bearers, wonderful food, a moon bounce (yes a moon bounce), dancing in sunglasses and at the end of a wonderful day, an escape in the rumble seat of the very Model A, in which mom and dad had made their own escape decades earlier.   This wedding day was genuinely magic.

Thanks for having us be part of your special day!   Elaine & Jose.

Anna & Steve’s Wedding day at Beth Sholom

Throughout the ceremonies in the early part of the day Rabbi Antine spoke often about their smiles, glow and that wonderful sense of being in love that so defined Anna and Steve’s beautiful day.

The Beth Sholom congregation was founded at the turn of the century and moved from DC to Potomac in the early 70’s. The modern Beth Sholom is one of the most peaceful, inspiring and beautiful sanctuaries we have ever photographed.  Even in the quiet hours of preparation this sanctuary brings joy.

Our special thanks to Anna, Steve, David and their wonderful families for the best smiles ever and so much fun all day long.

With our heartfelt thanks to  Beth Sholom Congregation, Da Vinci’s Florist, Signature Catering and the Mark Novak Band for making this day so amazing.

Ashley and Tom’s wedding day at Bluemont Vineyards

Sometimes nature conspires to help us remember a day forever. This was a day filled with laughter and hugs, warmth and sweetness, precious details and even some atmospheric bravery. Married in the rain?  …. they sure did. The winery glowed almost as much as they did.

We would like to express our thanks to Ashley and Tom, their wonderful families and wedding party for making this day so amazing, fun and beautiful.

Our special thanks to Jenny McLaughlin for all of her support in making this day so joyful!   Thank you Bluemont Vineyard.

Black & White Wedding Photography

Even in the most colorful, pastoral setting, black and white imagery can highlight emotion, texture, humor, intimacy and beauty.

There was a time even just a decade ago when digital imagery did not hold a candle to fine black and white film.  The world has changed.  Today digital photography with fine post processing has more power to express subtlety and detail then the very finest film did 20 years ago.

I nolonger miss my Hassleblad — well maybe just a little.  It still sits on my desk as a precious memory and tribute to the genius of idols like Ansel Adams and Imogen Cunningham.   How they would have loved digital!  How they would have loved today!

Jessica & Greg’s wedding at the Hyatt Regency

We would like to express our thanks to Jess, Greg, their wonderful family and friends and their amazing wedding party.

The day began with the most beautiful chuppah, hand sewn with pieces of fabric from Jess and Greg’s lives, including rosettes from baby blankets and mementos from high school, college and dating.   Even the littlest one kept their patent leather shoes on all day  long, braved a long aisle and danced into the wee hours with the biggest grins!

Congratulations Jessica & Greg!

Brianna & Nick at St. Matthew’s

Our special thanks to Brian, Nick their wonderful family and friends for an absolutely stunning day.  Brianna started her day by walking with a parasol to St. Matthews Cathedral in keeping with a longstanding cultural tradition.  The day was sunny and 70. It could not have been more beautiful.

St Matthew’s, dedicated in 1840 and designed by architect Christopher LeFarge is among the most beautiful cathedrals in the world.  Those waiting moments and the walk down the long aisle are the memory of a lifetime particularly for the littlest members of the wedding party.

Brianna and Nick visited the Capitol for some R&R, images and fun with their wedding party and celebrated their reception at the Army Navy Club decorated in Cherry Blossoms.

Congratulations Brianna and Tom!!!
