I can’t believe it, but in the last year and a half to two years I’ve been so extremely fortunate to photograph the weddings of a handful of HB Woodlawn alumni! I can’t even begin to express the pure joy and honor I feel. For all of you who know HB, you understand the bond we all share. But for those of you who may not be familiar, HB Woodlawn is more than just a school — it’s a place that has turned out some of the most exceptional human beings I’ve known. I for one know that if I had gone anywhere other than HB, my life would not have turned out as well as it has. OK, I could go on and on about HB, but this has got to be a super quick post because Darius and Jennifer are getting married THIS weekend! I’m tickled pink to be photographing the big day, and also that we snuck in a quick engagement shoot in DC just under the wire. Darius and Jennifer will be wed in DC just a few short days from now, so I wanted to share a few of my favorites from our time together last week!
Stay tuned for what I know are going to be some raucous wedding images!

I had the great fortune — and I use that particular word for a reason — of meeting Denise at a seminar for artists that Washington Project for the Arts (WPA) put together last year. The seminar was about getting your finances and taxes in good working order, and if you’re an artist, you know how we can struggle with that sometimes! I signed up the moment that email from WPA was dropped in my mailbox, and I am so glad I did. Not only did I gain an AMAZING financial advisor (Denise), I also gained a friend, colleague, and someone who really understands what it means to be a working artist.
When Denise emailed me earlier this year to let me know she was getting married to her partner Lauren I was so thrilled and honored that they wanted me to shoot the wedding… but their wedding date was proving to be a very popular one and I was already booked! Luckily, I was in the process of finalizing my new business strategy for 2014 and was tickled pink to be able to let Denise and Lauren know that I now have an associate photographer, and he IS available! We all sat down over tea in DC one day and, boom, instant connection! So if I can’t be there to document the day, I know that Kip will be a great alternative.
Because I knew I wasn’t going to be able to be there on their wedding day, I inserted myself in the engagement shoot Kip had planned this past week, and I’m so glad I did. It was awesome to get to be a part of Denise and Lauren’s wedding celebration. I am so happy for them!
I can’t wait to share the wedding photos, but for now, here are some of our favorites from the shoot. Job well done Kip!
(and yes, that is me being cheesy and making a heart with my hands for Denise and Lauren to kiss through… I couldn’t help it)
A big congratulations to Mandy and Mike! I had so much fun with them during their engagement portrait session in Washington, DC this fall. Mandy and Mike are both from upstate New York and will be heading back there for their wedding next year (and maybe settling back in that area, too). Coming to Washington, DC has been a new and exciting part of their journey together, and I am so glad I got the chance to help them capture this time in their relationship with some intimate engagement photographs around the Capitol. I hope that wherever they end up, these images will provide a tangible reminder of how their relationship took an amazing step in this amazing place! Yay!
