lovin’ it up in logan circle.
oh how i *love* kathleen + jerry!
they are engaged to be married this saturday at DAR and i cannot wait to photograph their day! we finally managed a rain-free hour on saturday to shoot their engagement session in logan circle – my favorite neighborhood (and theirs!) since they spent a ton of time there when they were dating. not only is logan such a colorful and rich area to begin with, but i didn’t realize how many black + red backgrounds would perfectly compliment their sassy attire! we had a blast walking through the neighborhood, wandering through the alleys and commandeering the sidewalk to get some amazing shots.
kathleen + jerry have such good energy – i really dig being around them. plus they are super stylish, ridiculously good looking, and have a fabulous propensity for easy laughter and genuine smiles. oh, and they are having duff from charm city cakes create an iphone wedding cake – what could be cooler than that?
showing love for the district.
i was *delighted* to discover this eco-friendly tote while doing holiday shopping yesterday at PULP in logan circle. it’s one of my favorite gifts since it combines local flavor + local art! i grabbed two of the last bags (one to give, one to keep!) and was lucky enough to meet the artist herself at the shop! she told me that although this design is almost sold out there are more fabulous creations on the horizon for 2009! check out her etsy shop and stay tuned!
crazy fun + lots of love.
kim + tony are engaged!
i documented their engagement a few weeks ago here in dc and had so much fun! it was a chilly afternoon but they were absolutely up for anything, so we started at FDR and then headed towards U street for the perfect mix of classic + urban dc. i loved how excited kim was for the session, and i really loved how i won tony over with my crazy antics…at the end of our shoot tony said he never imagined that it could be so much fun “crazy, running through mud puddles, chuck taylor wearing, psycho-bubbly kind of fun” were his exact words…and that, ladies + gentlemen, is the best quote, and most wonderful compliment ever!
tony + kim: you guys rock!! enjoy!
here’s to love!
i was so excited to meet up with katie + bob for their engagement session! it’s been months since we first met and i am really looking forward to their fabulous spring wedding next year…katie is a breath of fresh air and bob is so sweet – they are truly beautiful people inside and out and i’m so happy they found me! i really had a great time hanging out with them last weekend. we walked around logan circle (my fave neighborhood!) strolled along national mall, and ended the session in one of my new favorite spots…chatting about their wedding, honeymoon plans and life in general :) they were such a pleasure to be around and so easy to photograph – i can’t wait for their wedding, i know it’s going to be wonderful! at the end, they wanted to have a little fun with their football jerseys, and despite supporting opposing teams, these two are one perfect couple. i mean, if their love can transcend a superbowl rivalry, they can survive anything, right? so regardless of whether you cheer for the giants or the pats, i’m sure you will be a huge fan of katie + bob! :)
