Amy and Ryan's Vineyard Wedding at Stone Tower Winery in Northern Virginia!

I’m so excited to share Amy and Ryan’s wedding with you today! Amy and Ryan are two of the cutest people you will ever meet. They both grew up just houses down from each other in the suburbs of DC and ended up high school sweethearts. After they got engaged, they had their engagement party at Stone Tower Winery and decided it was the perfect place for them to tie the knot! Hooray!

Amy and Ryan’s wedding day was the quintessential perfect autumn day. They had their first look outside right between the vines and it was just breathtaking. Afterward, Amy and Ryan said their vows under a gorgeous wooden arbor in front of Stone Tower Winery’s views and rolling hills. After family photos were finished, the happy couple was announced and Amy and Ryan celebrated by dancing all night long with their guests. They even attempted a dirty dancing routine where Ryan lifted Amy in the air at the end of night! It was really incredible and so much fun.

Design wise, Amy and Ryan used blush, cream and burgundy colors throughout their wedding (with a few pops of light pink!). For the ballroom, they incorporated lush high and low floral arrangements, but kept things pretty simple because they didn’t want to detract from Stone Tower Winery’s gorgeous aesthetics. Special additions for the guests included hot cider and sweet tea to enjoy under warm blankets before the ceremony. They also had a late night s’mores station just outside the ballroom where guests could make their own s’mores!

Many thanks to L&L Events for their incredible work on this wedding (more vendors listed below the photos!). And, as always, many thanks to my incredible couple, Amy and Ryan, for trusting me to photograph the most special day in their lives. Enjoy!

Natalie & Eddie's Nationals Park Engagement Session in Washington, DC

You may remember Natalie and Eddie from part one of their adorable  engagement session at the Kennedy Center. Well, this dynamic duo is back for part two...and they really hit it out of the park this time! The Washington Nationals Park, in fact. Yippee!

Natalie and Eddie met while both working for the Washington Nationals, so it made sense they would want to incorporate part of their engagement photos with Nats Park. The day we chose to photograph turned out to be a challenge, as it was raining pretty steadily for most of the shoot! It didn't matter though, as we just incorporated some Washington Nationals' umbrellas and we were good to go! 

I have lots of favorites from this group, but I still think Natalie dancing with the umbrellas is one of my favorites. I just love how carefree the both of them were in the rain, when we could have easily called the whole thing off! I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do.

Thanks for looking!

Love,

Lisa

 

Junia and Colin's Bluemont Vineyard Virginia Wedding

Junia and Colin's wedding was a truly special one! They were married at Bluemont Vineyard, one of my favorite places to photograph. It was the perfect day outside...sunny and happy...just like Junia and Colin! These two were beyond giddy that they had found each other and could marry alongside their closest friends and family. You can feel the love just looking at the photos.

One of my favorite elements to the wedding day is that Junia and Colin had an entourage of kids as flower girls and ring bearers. They were an integral part of the wedding and I absolutely loved it! You never knew what they were going to do next and it kept me on my toes, which was very fun.

My favorite images of the day is the last one. As you may notice in some of the photos, Colin was gifted some liquid nitrogen to make ice cream on site! Well, we used it to create a night time photo where it looked like Junia and Colin are kissing on a cloud. It was so exciting to create!

Many thanks to Junia and Colin for having me photograph their wedding day. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do!

Thanks for looking!

Love,

Lisa

Stephanie & Brian's Washington DC Engagement Session

Stephanie and Brian are a photographers dream couple. They're sweet and adorable, but most of all, they are crazy in love with each other. This, of course, leads to exceptionally amazing photographs which you will see below!

This was my second engagement session with Stephanie and Brian before their wedding day and we decided to photograph in DC. We first stopped at the Delta Solar just outside of the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum (that's the sort of angular abstract photo). Then we walked over to the Hirshhorn's Sculpture Garden, where I took some of my favorite photos of Stephanie and Brian under a weeping beech tree! Afterwards, Stephanie and Brian changed outfits and we headed over to Constitution Gardens where the sun was going down and we got some great sunset photos! Then we ended our night with some nighttime photos of Rosslyn and the Lincoln Memorial. I love how DC looks at night...it's my favorite!

Hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do!
