Danielle + Tom // Alexandria Virginia Wedding

Oh, just an absolutely perfect wedding for your perusal today!
It’s so exciting to see two people with real passion for each other! Danielle and Tom are MFEO (made for each other—Sleepless in Seattle, anyone? No? Just me? …moving on…)

Let’s start with Tome. Tom is a total sweetheart. Since the minute the three of us met, every time he looked at Danielle he was absolutely beaming with joy! Their engagement session went so awesomely well that the long 6-month wait til their wedding nearly killed me.

On to the wedding!

The ceremony took place at Blessed Sacrament Church, which is a gorgeous Catholic church in Northern Virginia. Afterwards the bridal party and I endured sub-freezing temperatures for epic portraits in Old Town Alexandria!

I love it when a couple incorporates their gifts into their wedding day. One of Danielle’s gifts is that she is an amazing vocalist, so she sang to Tom at the reception! I was totally blown away by how beautiful her voice is. They also had a curated karaoke party section during their reception (AWESOME). Since Danielle is one of The Alexandria Singers, naturally a bunch of the guests were incredibly talented singers as well, and a few of them sang songs for the couple and the rest of the wedding guests to get down to! Before the party was over, we ventured out into the freeze again for some incredible night portraits. Thank you, D + T, for the opportunity to be there with you!

It’s easy to see why these two are a perfect match. See for yourself below!

This wedding was pure awesomeness.

Bridget + Andrew, you have some seriously WEIRD friends.

I had SUCH a good time with all of you weirdos!  :)

Sara + Ali :: Washington DC Tidal Basin Engagement

The Tidal Basin in Washington DC was alive with pink cherry blossoms early this year.

I always try to do things a bit differently than I've done things in past shoots if they're in the same location, and this time we walked all the way around the opposite side of the main cherry blossom trees, near the Roosevelt Memorial, where there were less people and more diverse scenery.  Pro tip!

I had an incredible time with Sara and Ali, and their love for each other was wonderfully apparent as we explored DC together!
