Georgetown is a great area for an engagement shoot. It has it all; beautiful scenery, historic buildings, interesting streets, there seems to be something unique around every corner. Andrea, Mark and I spent an afternoon exploring and came away with some great images.
Weddings come in all shapes and sizes. I have done events with 300 guests but I think I enjoy the small intimate ones the best. Dianne and Kent were married at Kent’s mothers house (with her freshly finished back patio and landscaping) surrounded by friends and family. We ventured into the neighborhood and found some amazing plants and bushes which worked really well for the bridal portrait. However we spent the next 20 minutes picking pieces of the plants out of the brides dress. Opps! Special mention to Elon from Double E Mobile Music who turned the basement into a mini dance club and kept everyone rocking all night.
I have always said that the only way for me to build my business is to do a good job for someone and they will tell their friends. I shot Marsha Permut’s wedding last year and her daughter Lori’s this summer. This is a first for me! Lori and Andrew were married at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club which is one of the few venues in the general DC area on the water. The Blaire Reinhard Band traveled from NYC and rocked the house all night long.
Algonkian Park in Sterling has more activities available than you can do in a weekend. A golf course, soccer and baseball fields, the Potomac River, a water park, and lots of nature trails to hike. This was where Dianne, Kent and I spent an afternoon exploring and making some great images.
