Falls Church Wedding Photographer – Congratulations Sara and Peseth!

If rain is good luck on a wedding day then Sara and Peseth are the luckiest couple I’ve ever photographed!  Their wedding day came with torrential rains that lasted the better part of the day.  The small ceremony was held at 2941 Restaurant in Falls Church, and while we couldn’t use the beautiful waterfalls and koi ponds as much as planned, we did take advantage of the colorful art inside before the restaurant opened.  And large umbrellas made it possible for a few outdoor pictures.

The DC portion of their wedding portraits were reschedule for two days later when the weather was picture perfect for this sweet couple.  Congratulations Sara and Peseth!

Army Navy Country Club Wedding – Congratulations Kacie and Porter!

The lovely Kacie married her Marine Captain at the Army Navy Country Club in Arlington, Virginia.  August as been relatively cool this year and it was a perfect day for their outdoor ceremony on the terrace overlooking the Washington Monument and all of Washington, DC.

Kacie was a stunning bride, I loved her unique and regal gown.  Very fitting as Porter treats her like a queen.  They clearly adore each other and it was a joy to capture their wedding day.  Lots of wonderful family and friends celebrated with them, including a flower girl who took her job very seriously.  She adorably participated in every aspect of the day and carefully carried Kacie’s train at every opportunity, making certain to keep it from touching the ground.

Congratulations Kacie and Porter!  Your day was incredible!

Washington DC Family Photography – Brennan and Kiana

It had been a little over 2 years since Brennan and Kiana’s last photo shoot and boy had they grown up!  I had so much fun catching up with them and capturing this stage of their lives.  Kiana is sweet and sassy, and Brennan has a cool confidence.   We had a great time incorporating their personalities and some of their posing ideas into the session.

Old Town Alexandria Engagement Pictures – Theresa and Chris

These college sweethearts are getting married at River Farm this fall.  I had a great time capturing their sweet and playful relationship during their engagement portrait session.  We started in Old Town Alexandria and ended up in Washington. DC.  I’m enjoying getting to Theresa and Chris and count it a privilege to be invited into this joyful season of their lives.  I hope the memories I capture will bring them happiness every time they look at the pictures.

Old Town Alexandria Photographer – Jacob and Noah

Today I’m going to tell a little story about what it’s like to photograph a toddler and more than one child.  I know Jacob and Noah’s parents will enjoy this too since they experienced the same thing.:)

Here is Jacob, he’s 7. And if you’ve followed my blog for long you’ve seen him grow up as I’ve photographed him from birth.  (I’ve known his parents for 15 years.) Even as a toddler Jacob was easy to photograph.

Here’s Noah, Jacob’s 15 month old and very busy baby brother.  Isn’t he cute?

And here’s what happens when you try to put them in a picture together:

Because this stick has people to see and places to go and takes Noah with it!

Finally a smile!

20

But only because he was poking the stick at the camera!  Which he thinks is quite amusing.

I think this counts as two children smiling in the same picture…

Just one more smile, Noah. Please? We’ve tried every song, dance, game, naked squeaky chicken, and bubble blowing fish in our bag of tricks. Everyone that walks by thinks we’re crazy.  But I got it!
