Need to smile today? You won’t meet two kids with bigger smiles! Their happiness is contagious – these siblings are a joy to photograph with their family. Enjoy these sweet faces and smile back at them!
We had a great time, enjoying the gardens and the views of the sunset over the Potomac River, during Jeannine and Tom’s engagement shoot in Washington, DC. A warmer than normal fall day at the end of October was perfect for enjoying the photography process, just a tad warm for their planned sweaters. The autumn color was late this year with a few trees still hanging on to their leaves even now, though it’s quite chilly. So glad we were able to capture this special season of engagement for Jeannine and Tom and give them some great memories of this time in their lives.
Belmont Country Club is a beautiful place for a wedding. no matter the weather. This October day did not turn sunny as forecasted so the misty overcast day felt more like London, which was fine with the groom and his affinity for British things. We were able to do the first look and portraits outdoors which made us all happy, but to be safe, the ceremony was set up inside the ballroom. Katie is such a classic beauty and looked so elegant. Her hairpiece was her mothers. But most of all we’re glad the groom had pants. Though I don’t think it would have bothered him to get married in his jeans. However, the mini-crisis was adverted and the tux pants did arrive in time to see his bride for the first look. There was a lot of love and support for this couple and happy memories made by all.
Many tears during the ceremony and super sweet parent dances.
It was a bit misty most of the day.

It’s always an honor to photograph what I think I’ll call my “wedding babies”. It’s a joy, not only to photograph a wedding, but to watch the family grow, in this case by two adorable boys. They were fairly similar to photograph (neither would sleep on their tummies) so it will be interesting to see if their temperaments are similar. Michael has twinkly eyes and a big smile and is already showing signs of being an attentive big brother. These boys are going to have a ball growing up together so close in age. I’m sure they’ll be the best of buddies!
