Nina and Ian: Married April 4th, 2016

Nina and Ian met me through Nina's brother Bayard, who I've had the pleasure of working with now and then since we first met in 2005, most recently working together at the Castleton Festival's annual gala.  The weekend Nina and Ian got married was a twofer; Amy and Brandon's wedding in rural Maryland was two days beforehand.

Nina and Ian's wedding day was threatened by rain showers, but luckily the bands narrowly missed Ida Lee Park, located in the heart of Leesburg, Virginia, only kicking up some wind and sprinkles during our portrait session.  By evening, the sky had cleared for a pink and orange sunset.  The party continued that cool night until Nina and Ian's friends and family gathered to light sparklers and send the newlywed couple off to their honeymoon.

As always, the fantastic Eddie Kyle assisted me in photographing Nina and Ian's big day.  Check him out on Facebook and his website!

Rachel and Andrew: Married May 31st, 2015

You might remember Rachel and Andrew from their snowy engagement session with their two beautiful horses.  Now you will remember them for their lovely southern-style summer wedding, right on the Potomac River.  The weather held out all day for a breezy outdoor ceremony and bright barn reception with a live band to keep the party kicking.

Rachel and Andrew are avid wine and scotch aficionados (yay!), and even incorporated their love of good spirits into their big day; the ring bearer was more of a flask bearer, and their favorite bottles were available for everyone to enjoy at the reception.

I have to thank my fantastic assistant photographer Eddie Kyle who helps make photographing weddings like Rachel and Andrew's possible.
