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!

Kelsey + Mike // American Visionary Art Museum

Here we have Kelsey + Mike: two beautiful people that I have the great pleasure of knowing for the past few years!  We took an impromptu stroll through the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore Maryland.  The museum itself is strange and amazing, dedicated in part to outsider art; work by artists who are not considered mainstream, but whose talent is obvious and whose work is inspirational and forward-thinking.

I absolutely loved this museum and encourage everyone to go and see it at some point.  They have a small postsecret section, a set of incredibly fantastic works by mentally and physically disabled artists, and my favorite piece was a flawless to-scale replica of the Lusitania made entirely out of toothpicks.  See if you can spot it in the photos below!  ;)

Kelsey and Mike are super cool, super weird, industrious, tandem-bike-riding, california-residing, wonderful people that I am so happy to know and so excited to photograph in July when they get hitched!  On to the photos!
