Who says that elegant weddings have to be stiff? Not Kate & Stephen!! Even in the midst of all the elegance, the energy was all about having fun and enjoying good company. These world travelers really know how to throw a party and enjoy themselves!! I feel so lucky that they chose me to capture their wedding memories!!
Have I mentioned how much I love getting ready moments?
Kate has such a wonderful relationship with her brother, it was obvious how much they care about each other.
She only stood in this beautiful light for a split second, and I'm so glad I caught it!
A completely candid moment before the ceremony began...
I can't say that I've seen many saxaphone quartets play for wedding ceremonies, but it was the perfect combination for the music that Kate & Stephen chose- especially when they danced down the aisle after their kiss!
When Kate told me about her wedding at the The Washington Club, she had mentioned how many mirrors were in the room where they'd have their ceremony and wondered if it would be a big problem. Mirrors? I love mirrors!
Kate & Stephen had just a few minutes alone together as man & wife before joining their guests for the cocktail hour.
I just love photographing musicians... and I have yet to attend a reception where a live band didn't keep the dance floor alive all night long!
There's a really cute story behind this picture. The paper doll's name is Jack Flash and the boy was participating in a project where students send their paper people to other students around the world who take pictures of the paper doll in different places and then tell the story behind the picture. It's like pen-pals, but with photographs and a fictional character to help tell the story in third person! How cool!!
Happy Father's Day!!
A special selection from overseas? ;-)
Rumor has it that the building was used as a second home for the White House during a period of major reconstruction.
You go girl!
The moments before and after the posed shots I'm asked to take are some of my favorite. I absolutely love how this image really shows everyone's personality!! You can just feel how much everyone cares about each other - I can only imagine how much their families miss Kate & Stephen now that they're living in Cambodia!
To Kate & Stephen - I'm so grateful that our paths brough us together. I hope these images can help keep your family close at heart even when you're miles apart.
