Katie + Jorge // Washington DC Wedding

...what to say about the couple who has everything?

//

Katie and Jorge are two peas in a ridiculous pod.

Both of them have the amazing ability to warm up any room just by being in it, and Katie's smile always brings a smile to my face too.  Full disclosure: a LOT of my close friends were at this wedding, being crazy, and making it one of the most fun and epic weddings I've ever shot.  After the wedding at Catholic University Chapel, everybody scooted over to Glen Echo for carousel rides, an uncountable amount of cookies, and dancing the night away.  The evening was punctuated by beautiful speeches, me sneaking the lucky couple out for night portraits as often as possible, and all of the guests dance-fighting over rights to stand in front of the well-placed giant dancefloor fan, which undoubtedly averted a string of heatstroke-related injuries.

I cannot explain how happy I am to show off these beautiful people doing crazy things like getting married, so I'll stop here and let the photos do the talking!

Amanda + Jason // Richmond Virginia Engagement

Amanda + Jason met up with me at Floodwall Park in Richmond Virginia, and we explored the small park and gigantic floodwall, with its epic views of the James River and downtown Richmond City!  It was warm and wonderful, sunny and not too hot.  And yes they brought their dog along!

I loved spending some time with these two and getting to know them a bit!  Amanda + Jason are spunky and adventurous, and their love for each other is evident just looking at them. 

After Floodwall Park we made our way over to Scott's Addition and walked around exploring for a bit before stopping by Ardent for a few beers, which speaking of, I'm going to recommend beers during all future engagement sessions.

It's...the right thing to do.

Their wedding isn't until next year, but I'm already excited for it!

Rachel + Jay // Richmond Virginia Wedding // Hotel John Marshall

I've been waiting to blog this wedding for a looooooong time!  Rachel and Jay were married awhile back but I hadn't had the chance to blog them until now. 

So here we are: a gorgeous and super fun wedding at Hotel John Marshall in Richmond!  If you haven't been there before, the groomsmen suite is gigantic and it has a pool table.  I love that.  After getting ready photos we hopped over to the Virginia State Capitol for their first look + a few portraits.  They were married and partied in the ballroom!  Rachel and Jay are notoriously ridiculous, and got the notoriously ridiculous band Three Sheets to the Wind to play the wedding.

I'm told that they've also has seen them multiple times since the wedding.

Here's to you guys, such an honor to be there at your big day!

On to the photos:
