I’m pretty sure this post is going to make you want to have a winter wedding. Oh My goodness, we had so much fun shooting it and I’m just so excited to share with you. Lauren and I met only a few months before her wedding and we immediately clicked! That weekend I photographed their engagement session in Georgetown and the following months I mentally prepared myself for shooting in the freezing cold….since their wedding was planned for February 28th. But as you can see from the photos, the weather was quite a bit warmer than what you’d expect for Alexandria, in February. What a wonderful surprise that was! Lauren and Adam were married at St. Mary’s Catholic Church and the reception was then held at one of our favorite venues, The Hotel Monaco of Alexandria. I hope you enjoy looking at these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Make sure to check their wedding out on Style Me Pretty!

Alissa and Nate fell in love in our nation’s capitol, so it made perfect sense for them to do their engagement portraits in the District. I met Alissa and Nate about a year and a half ago, and I remember thinking how natural they were as a couple. I met them right in the beginning of their courtship and it’s been so exciting to watch their love for one another blossom. Their upbeat personalities, positive outlook on life, and kind spirit are magnetic. I’m lucky to be able to call them my friends!

I’m looking forward to their wedding at the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, Florida, on October 25th, 2014. Make sure to check out this session on Capitol Romance today!
