Columbia Country Club Wedding Photography – Hughes Wedding

post written on 09 Nov 11 in Weddings

When I moved my business from Los Angeles to Virginia I encountered many differences.  Hip and cool LA vs conservative and traditional Virginia.  Beaches vs rolling hills.  Year round gorgeous weather outdoor venues vs save us from the heat indoor facilities.  The most important aspect of my business I brought with me was my philosophy on how to treat my customers.  I like to think of my clients as part of the RHP family.  When someone recommends their friends to me I feel a sense of responsibility to take care of them.  I consider a referral to be gold.  I shot Jessica and Joey’s wedding in July of ’09.  Alison was one of the bride’s maids and I was thrilled when Jessica suggested me.  She and Seamus were married at Blessed Sacrament church in DC with a reception at Columbia Country Club.  This is my second time at Columbia and I honestly believe it is the finest country club in the greater DC area.  Of course Alison and Seamus made everything easy for me.  They are a handsome couple with a warm and friendly manner.   Being crazy in love always helps too!!

Rosemont Manor Wedding Photography – Carey Wedding

post written on 07 Nov 11 in Weddings

To all brides who have not booked their venue yet; If you are considering Northern Virginia you must pay a visit to Rosemont Manor in Berryville.  Only open to the public for about a year it is a charming 1800′s classic Virginia Mansion.  The house is elegant and stylish and the grounds are remarkable.  Peggy and Rob were married there a few weeks ago on a perfect fall day.  Their ceremony was held on the lawn below the magnificent columns of the back porch.  After the ceremony we spent some time exploring the grounds and creating some timeless images.  The guests retreated to the Carriage House where Jake from Dream Day DJ’s kept the party going all night.

Washington DC Wedding Photography – Waltho Wedding

post written on 01 Nov 11 in Weddings

This has been one of the strangest weather years I can remember.  Andrea and Mark’s wedding was no different.  The first week in October should provide a beautiful day, not freezing cold rain.    The DACOR Bacon House in DC has a wonderful courtyard which could not be used.  We made due inside and an elegant wedding and reception followed.

Leesburg Virginia Wedding Photography – Scott Wedding

post written on 24 Oct 11 in Weddings

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.

Chesapeake Bay Beach Club Wedding Photography – Seifter Wedding

post written on 21 Oct 11 in Weddings

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.

Whitehall Manor Wedding Photography – Rose Wedding

post written on 21 Sep 11 in Weddings

In the week leading up to your wedding everyone feels its their duty to give you advice on what to expect.  How to deal with an earthquake and a hurricane is normally not included!  Kristen and Andrew were at the mercy of the Weather Gods when they got married at Historic Whitehall Manor in Bluemont, Virginia.  A rare east coast earthquake shook things up early in the week and then hurricane Irene hit on the day of the wedding.  A positive attitude is almost a requirement under the circumstances and Kristen and Drew had this in abundance.  Nothing was going to slow them down from making the most of their day and having a great time with friends and family.  The bride and groom are graduates of Ithaca College and the wedding was packed with fellow IC alum.  I felt a special connection to this enthusiastic group as I am one myself.  Go Bombers!

National Museum of Women in the Arts Wedding Photography – Keljo Wedding

post written on 19 Sep 11 in Weddings

Having a wedding in Washington, D.C. offers some unique venues not available anywhere in the country.  Lindsey and Michael held their ceremony and reception at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.  Wonderful sculptures and paintings filled the building which is a work of art itself.  It combines the size and elegance of an Italian villa with the modern touches of a hip nightclub.  A second floor balcony makes for a fantastic vantage point during the ceremony.  The museum is also located within walking distance of the White House for those bold enough to walk the streets in a wedding dress.  (Which Lindsay was!)

Trump National Golf Club Wedding Photography – Leonetti Wedding

post written on 15 Sep 11 in Weddings

Chris and Laura were married at Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, VA.  They had planned an outdoor wedding in front of the beautiful giant waterfall with a view of the Potomac river.  The weather had other plans however and we were forced indoors.  No problem.  The staff at Trump switched everything without a hitch.  The ballroom made for an elegant ceremony.

I have known Laura for a while and I can honestly say I have never seen her happier.  It was impossible to remove the smile from her face all day long.   She and Chris had dreamed of partying the night away with their friends.  This was accomplished by renting a bus back to the hotel where all the guests were staying.  No one had to drive.  Brilliant.  The party, oh my……..

Baltimore Wedding Photographer – The Engineers Club – Saul Wedding

post written on 03 Sep 11 in Weddings

Tammy and Ryan were married at The Engineers Club in Baltimore, a beautiful turn-of-the century mansion.  This facility has one of the most unusual architectural features I have ever seen.  There is an atrium in the middle which must of been an open air patio at one time.  If you are a bride and groom in search of a classy, elegant reception space in Baltimore, look no further.

We were lucky that the ceremony and reception were both held indoors as the temp outside was in the high 90′s.  After a wonderful and moving ceremony the reception followed highlighted by an uncle giving a speech in Russian which clearly had an emotional effect on everyone.  The evening ended with a spectacular sparkler line as the bride and groom walked to their honeymoon night hotel up the street.  Very sweet.

US Naval Academy Wedding Photography – Doran Wedding

post written on 01 Sep 11 in Weddings

I am always excited to shoot a wedding at the US Naval Academy.  (For anyone living in the D.C. area it is required for your “must see” list.)  It is a magnificent facility dripping with tradition.  Laura and Kevin’s ceremony was at the beautiful Naval Chapel and was followed by a reception at the historic Governor Calvert House in Annapolis.  We were able to create some fun and dramatic shots of the couple with the Naval Cadets marching in the background.  There were a lot of nervous moments leading up to the reception as most of Annapolis did not have power for the entire day.  With candles already burning and daylight fading fast, the staff was scrambling to set up a generator when the power came back in a nick of time.  The party that followed was a response to almost never happening as the group seemed to revel in every moment.  (Very crazy!!)  I also must mention the speech of the Father of the Bride.  It simply was the best I have ever heard in my almost 20 years in the business.  “Tears forward” is what it was called and I will never forget it.
