I am so excited to finally share this wonderful fashion piece with everyone! Since moving to DC, I have met the most amazing people – Frankie Bethea is one of them. Frankie is one of the most talented women I have met in this city, not to mention she has the kindest heart. With her tremendous makeup skills and her fantastic voice, she is a woman of many trades. I felt super lucky to even shoot her {album cover}.

With a plethora of fashion concepts and the gorgeous appearance by Jelena, we all came together to create this shoot.

I have had the privilege of getting to know Marcie and Kevin over the past year. I initially photographed their {engagement session} in Washington, DC where they live. When I moved up to DC in January, we started going out for dinners and schmoozing. I always mention that photographing someone’s wedding is much more meaningful when I know the couple very well. With Marcie and Kevin, I was truly able to see their relationship as a friend, rather than just their photographer. This really enabled me to capture their Big Day with more ease as they had become very comfortable with me and vise versa.

Their Poconos wedding at the {Shawnee Inn} was on a gorgeous Saturday in late June. I feel so lucky to have captured their story here and love the moments we were able to document. The reception photos might be my favorite of all time…see how crazy they get!

I have been very fortunate this year to travel all over the country for magnificent weddings. Sarah and Patrick brought me all the way to York, Maine where the weather was all over the place! It down poured in the morning (bringing good luck), then turned into a deep fog (perfect for the shore photos), then the skies opened up to a beautiful sun. Let’s just say that the photos speak for themselves – a super sweet couple in breathtaking scenes. Feast your eyes on this beauty…

 

Congrats Sarah and Pat!
