Washington DC Wedding

Glamorous DC Wedding: Jasmine & Matt

We knew after Jasmine & Matt’s engagement session that this wedding was going to be one for the books, but there’s no way we could have predicted how romantic and downright FUN this day would be! Jasmine thought of absolutely everything to ensure that her guest’s enjoyed the wedding, right down to a custom snapchat filter.  From the moment we arrived, we could sense how much these two care about their friends & family, and how fiercely they are loved in return. Jasmine & Matt, your wedding day was such a selection of your love for each other, and we were so thrilled to document it! Choosing favorite to share was a tough job; let’s just say this wedding will probably be making appearances on our instagram feed for a really long time!

Meanwhile, the guys were attempting to work some bowtie magic. which was no small feat. Matt was possibly the sweetest almost-husband in history; he grinned from ear to ear as he talked about Jasmine, how excited her was to marry her, and even played the first dance song for us to hear.

When we headed outside for portraits, we had exactly 20 minutes of light to work with. For most people, this would be stressful, but Jasmine’s response was so perfect; “What’s a wedding without a little hustle?” They didn’t miss a beat as we rolled through family portraits, wedding party portraits, and of course the best for last…..newlywed portraits!!dsc_7503

Brooke & Tom: A Navy Wedding at Jasmine Plantation

It was the perfect spring day at Jasmine Plantation for Tom and Brooke’s outdoor ceremony.  When they promised to stay true and keep their love strong, as their jobs took them oceans apart from one another, even us veteran wedding photographers get teary.  Being so close to Memorial Day, it was extra special to be able to spend the day with this couple and their decorated family.  Brooke’s million dollar smile made her new husband grin from across the room.  Congratulations to you both!

Katherine & John: an Elegant DC Wedding

Katherine and John had the kind of day that makes us love shooting weddings; plenty of sunshine, lots of fabulous DC locations, and an undeniable love for each other. We had such a hard time narrowing down our favorites, because with these two, every moment felt special. From their choice to do a spend the day together to the thoughtful gifts they exchanged, everything felt like it was so them.

We started the morning at a hotel in Arlington, where Katherine dressed with her girls, as John enjoyed some leisurely time with his groomsmen. They opted for a first look, which meant we had an entire afternoon of photos; a true luxury on any wedding day!Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos Top of the Town DC Wedding Photos
