lindsey + chris: married!

hello newlyweds, farewell 2008!

lindsey-chris-1913

lindsey + chris are married! this was my final wedding of 2008 and a fantastic way to conclude a phenomenal season! everything about lindsey + chris’ wedding was beautiful, emotional, and wonderfully classy. i teared up more than a few times, struck by the sincerity and magnitude of their true love for each other and their amazing family + friends.

i am so lucky to have such truly incredible clients. at each wedding i continue to be awestruck as i find myself standing in the presence of true love and watching as the most beautiful moments of intense, heartfelt emotion unfold before me. the only thing greater than experiencing all of this love is having the privilege of documenting it and preserving it. i love people and i love love –  and the best gift every single one of my clients has given me is the challenge of capturing that love. in turn, i love giving it back to them, presenting them with images that have so much meaning. images that are passed along online, shared on the pages of albums, displayed on the walls of their homes (on the walls of my home!) and cherished forever. these images, they are more than just photographs – they are the most real and important moments of life and i am so honored that these amazing people with so much love choose me and trust me and love me. and i, in turn, love them.

so it goes without saying that lindsey + chris’ wedding was divine. their love and their faith is inspiring and the way they look at each other is incredible – it’s the perfect mix of elation, adoration and respect that every couple should strive for, not only on their wedding day, but for the rest of their lives.

lindsey + chris: thank you. thank you for your trust, thank you for your friendship, thank you for making me smile, and laugh and cry – i couldn’t ask for anything more! have a wonderful honeymoon, a fabulous holiday, and enjoy the fastest blog i have ever posted!!

here’s to 2008 and here’s to love!

enjoy!

carrie + jay: married!

a legendary evening.

carrie-jay-99791

carrie + jay are married! their was a simply wonderful celebration at the amazing hotel monaco in old town alexandria. 

carrie + jay are such a fun couple – they are always up for anything, have a great sense of humor and are a perfect match. november 22nd was one of the coldest days of the year, but they braved the weather (with their fantastic bridal party in tow!) to visit some of their favorite (outdoor!) locations and the result was some of my favorite portraits ever! all of the details of the day were superb – carrie has fantastic taste and the excellent team at cherry blossom events helped pull it all together. 

highlights included carrie’s fabulous red shoes, jay’s hilarious + entertaining behavior, their ring-dog dalton, carrie’s fathers fancy footwork on the dancefloor, and all the amazing women in carrie’s life who made me laugh all night long! they even brought along these ridiculously adorable mini-me dolls – complete with a blonde carrie doll in bridal attire – which made for some good laughs and *great* photos! 

it was a beautiful, intimate affair, and i loved capturing all of it. carrie + jay: you are the best! 

enjoy!
