Washington, DC in the Spring is one of the most magical places. After another bitter cold Winter I was more than thrilled to welcome the cherry blossoms, Magnolias, Dogwoods, and Forsythia back into my life. I’m reminded every year at this time of how blessed I am to live in our nation’s capitol. Today I want to share with you a blossom filled maternity session!

This past July, I had the privilege of documenting Mallory and Phil’s July 26th wedding classically romantic wedding. They started their day by getting ready at both the Hay Adams Hotel and Anderson House in Dupont Circle. The love birds said their vows at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Old Town Alexandria and their reception was held at Hay Adams Hotel, in downtown Washington, DC. I just fell in love with the light blue accents especially the gorgeous bridesmaids gowns! I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them!

I’m so excited to share this sweet wedding with you today! Rachel and Taylor were married at a beautiful estate called Oxon Hill Manor, which is located just outside of the District and Old Town Alexandria. I love shooting at this venue because of the amount of privacy and the breathtaking gardens. Karson Butler did a fabulous job pulling together the beautiful decor and Highway to Hill created some masterpiece florals. Make sure to check out their wedding on Style Me Pretty today!

Savannah is such a enchanting place and I feel truly fortunate to have studied photography in such exquisite town.  As most of you might know, I went to Savannah College of Art & Design for my graduate studies, about 6 years ago. My time in Savannah has proven to be invaluable. I guess you would say that I found myself in Savannah. I realized my passion for wedding photography and nurtured some of my most treasured friendships. One of those friends has been working by my side for most of my weddings for the past 3.5 – 4 years. Many of you know who I’m talking about…it’s Michelle! During our time in Savannah, Michelle and I knew from the very beginning that our interests lined up. We were both crazy about fashion photography and styling shoots…..and just crazy in general. I fell in love with her work ethic, her creativity, and pretty much everything she created. I really don’t know what I would have done without her these past few years. Sweet Tea Photography would not be where it is without her help and encouragement. Next week Michelle will be moving to Denver, Colorado and she will be dearly missed. *My eyes just filled up with tears*

Another friendship that blossomed while studying in Savannah, was with the fabulous Mrs. Bevin Valentine Jalbert. When moving to Savannah, I knew there was another Hollins alum in the photography graduate program and reached out to her immediately. She proved to be one of the most darling, intelligent, and fun gals I have ever met. When I found out that Bevin was getting married this August to her true love, I was so excited to make the trip down to Savannah! The months before the wedding, I was filled with inspiration and the desire to add some moss-draped oaks to my portfolio. Eventually I talked to Bevin and Siobhan about doing a styled bridal shoot for their southern Art & Style webzine. They were completely on board and we started planning from there. We brought on some of the most amazing vendors and I am thrilled to share the photos with you!
