julie + patrick: engagement party!

country chic.

big red barns + twinkling white lights make me very, very happy.

imagine taking a perfectly picturesque venue and decking it out with buckets of bright yellow mums, bales of hay, clusters of corn stalks and big orange pumpkins. then mix in a totally rockin’ band, great food, 150 or so happy family + friends, and one of the nicest, cutest couples ever. the result was a simply fabulous celebration for julie + patrick! yay!

i was thrilled to document this event, and excited to trek out to poolesville and check out pat’s family farm. although it was a very wet + rainy evening, the barn provided perfect shelter and an unbelievable atmosphere for all the excitement surrounding this couple!  i literally shrieked with delight when i saw the fantastic barn all lit up, and didn’t stop smiling from the moment i met julie + patrick. they absolutely exude goodness + happiness. they are getting married next fall and i know they are looking forward to an exciting year of planning and celebration – woohoo!

enjoy!

festive attire at the NMSF leadership awards dinner on june 2, 2009 in DC.

i was thrilled to photograph the national marine sanctuary foundation leadership awards dinner for the second year in a row, earlier this month during national capitol hill ocean week. the event was held in the absolutely stunning atrium at the ronald reagan building + international trade center in dc. guests were treated to a masterful, four-course meal prepared by dc’s premier chefs – todd gray, michel richard, ris lacoste, and xavier deshayes collaborated on a truly amazing menu. 

master of ceremonies, boyd matson of national geographic fame, entertained guests and introduced notable guests dr. sylvia earle and NMSF board chair bob talbot who honored this year’s award recipients.

in recognition her commitment to protect and preserve ocean and coastal resources, representative madeleine z. bordallo of guam received the 2009 leadership award. dr. robert d. ballard was honored with this year’s lifetime achievement award for his life-long commitment to ocean exploration, marine conservation and national marine sanctuaries. commercial fisherman and ocean lover, josh churchman, was named national volunteer of the year.
