I shot the wedding of Susan and Josh at Newton White Mansion in Mitchellville, Maryland. This wedding was an example of what happens when two large families get together and throw a great party. It was family love from start to finish. Susan was constantly assisted by her many sisters and Josh’s brother and his family were also fantastic. Thrown in about a million fun kids and you have the recipe for a great day.
I shot the wedding of Lissette and Jaye at Chantilly National Golf and Country Club in Centerville, VA. I met the bride at the Westfields Marriott and was able to create some wonderful Fall portraits. We then headed out to Chantilly National for the ceremony and reception. The highlight was a sand-blending ceremony with Lissette’s daughter. (My wife and I did something similar with our boys during our wedding). During the reception, all of the guests were moved by the loving tributes from the groom’s father and brother, as well as the bride’s best friend. There was not a dry eye in the house. The party went well into the night and ended with a sparkler exit.
I shot the wedding of Sarah and Brad at the Dumbarton House in Washington, D.C. This beautiful old Federal style house is located in the Georgetown neighborhood of DC. I have not shot there in a few years and they have made some nice improvements. The renovated reception hall was perfect for this sophisticated and elegant event.
I shot the wedding of Sara and Craig at Shadow Creek in Purcellville, Virginia. This wedding was a perfect example of two loving families putting forth a tremendous effort to create an unforgettable day for their kids. Every detail was perfect, from the tiny white pumpkins seat designators to the beer flight samplers. Shadow Creek was decorated with signs, tchotchke’s, and flowers, that created a wonderful atmosphere. The band rocked hard and kept the party going until the evening ended with a sparkler exit.
I shot the wedding of Michelle and Erich at The Winery and Vineyards at Lost Creek in Northern Virginia. A little rain could not dampen the spirit of this couple or their fun-loving guests. I have shot at Lost Creek for years and the staff always does an exceptional job. This family-oriented affair was no exception.

I shot the wedding of Michelle and Cole at Bazin’s on Church in Vienna, VA. This intimate wedding was done with the taste and style of the couple in mind. Bazin’s is a fantastic restaurant and was the perfect location for this elegant event. I traveled with the couple to Wolf Trap later in the day for some portraits. I would hope that more couples have weddings that reflect who they are as this one successfully did.
I shot the wedding of Jessica and Jamie at Patowmack Farm in Lovettsville, VA. This past summer seemed to get hotter every weekend and this day was no exception. With the temps threatening 100 degrees we managed an outdoor ceremony with a cooler full of ice cold bottled water for everyone. The bride and groom were not bothered by the heat as they enjoyed themselves throughout. The Farm transforms into a restaurant every weekend and by all accounts is one of the most highly rated in the area. I concur as the meal I had was one of the best of the year. Guests were treated to a live band as the temps finally came down after dark. I must add that Jessica was radiant all day and looked stunning in her wedding dress and flowered hair.
I shot the wedding of Drew and TJ at The Marriott Ranch in Hume, VA. I love weddings at this venue! Its a beautiful old home set on rolling hills surrounded by majestic views. The pavilion style reception area has games set up on the lawn. Guests can enjoy volleyball, corn-hole, shuffleboard, or horseshoes. It’s a laid back, family friendly place that always makes for a great day. Drew and TJ shared their vows under a giant shade tree on the front lawn and then partied with their guests all day.
I shot the wedding of Carissa and Phillip at The Ritz Carlton in Georgetown. The weather did not cooperate as it was 125 degrees outside, but the staff at The Ritz could not be more accommodating. They allowed us to photograph anywhere inside the hotel. The building has a unique history as it was once a recycling plant. When designing the hotel they left intact much of the original brick factory walls, which make for some wonderful photographic locations. Carissa and Phillip enjoyed the day and were fortunate to have Phillip’s family and friends fly over from Germany. They brought with them a special drinking cup which had been handed down through the family for many years. Phillip was clearly moved as he received the gift. The couple will soon fly to Germany to celebrate with those who could not make the trip.
I shot the wedding of Kathleen and Steve at The Vineyards and Winery at Lost Creek in Leesburg, VA. This summer has been a little hot and this outdoor ceremony was no exception. However, everything went smoothly and the loving bond between these two was wonderful to see.
