Tiffany and Vishal's Colorful Indian Fusion Wedding at the Mayflower Hotel!

I'm so excited to share Tiffany and Vishal's Indian fusion wedding today! I had the honor of photographing their wedding in December and loved every minute of it. Tiffany and Vishal have this undeniable chemistry when they're together. As I'm sure you'll see from the photos, every time they look at each other they grin from ear-to-ear and genuinely love being around one other! 

Tiffany and Vishal had colorful Indian and American ceremonies at the stunning Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC. We were lucky enough to take some photos with the Mayflower holiday decor, plus some photos with White House and some other outdoor locations! Tiffany and Vishal were such troopers even working outside in the cold at times. Then, back inside, everyone laughed and partied the night away. I loved every second of photographing Tiffany and Vishal's big day and hope you enjoy the photos we were able to capture!

Many thanks to Tiffany, Vishal and their family and friends for letting us be a part of the festivities! And a big thank you to Mallory Rood of All the Dainty Details for planning this fabulous event! ❤️

Thanks for looking!

Sarah and Daniel's Reagan National Airport Engagement Session!

I'm so excited to share Sarah and Daniel's engagement photos with you today!  I have known Daniel for a long time now, as I've photographed both of his siblings weddings (Hi JP and Jacqueline!).  So when Sarah, Daniel's fiancée, reached out to me about photographing their wedding, I was beyond thrilled and I cannot wait for their big day!

Sarah and I became immediate friends and we both decided it was a good idea to do an engagement session so she and Daniel could get comfortable in front of the camera.  We went back and forth with location ideas, but when she suggested Reagan National Airport as an option, I was totally in.  Sarah and Daniel both LOVE traveling and they really wanted photos that represented travel well. Daniel is also an architect and is a fan of gorgeous architecture (of course!), so that played a huge role in choosing Reagan Airport as well.

So, one bright, sunny afternoon, we met up and drove to Reagan Airport!  We had luggage in tow so Sarah and Daniel looked like legit travelers.  We stayed mostly in the terminal C area, grabbing a lot of wide architectural shots on the main floor, then some fun departure area photos on the second floor.  We took a little break in the airport restaurant for some drinks  (yay!) and then moved on to the Metro station area for some train photos.  After that we decided to head to Gravelly Point Park to get some sunset photos with the planes as they landed.  I am beyond thrilled with how all of the photos turned out and hope you enjoy them below!

Sarah and Daniel, thank you so much for having me photograph the most unique and fun engagement session I've ever had!  I hope you love the photos as much as I do!

Update: This engagement session was featured by Washingtonian Magazine! Squee!

Lisa Boggs is a Three-Time Fearless Photographers Award Winner!

Say whaaaaaaat?!  I won some awards?!  It's true!  Last year I decided to take the plunge and start entering some of my wedding photos into competitions, my first competition being with Fearless Photographers.  I cannot even begin to explain how intimidating Fearless Photographers is to me.  Each and every image I've ever seen from this group of photographers has floored me!  So, needless to say, I never thought in a million years I could win anything with it.  Plus, the odds are not fabulous...each image I submit has less than a 1% chance of receiving an award.  And those odds are only getting harder!  Eeek! Anyway, as luck would have it, I nabbed three awards, one each in Collections 20, 21 and 22!  I screamed like a maniac each time I received one and I'm convinced Penny the Dog thinks I was possessed each time.  But hey, what're ya gonna do?  :)  Here are the photos that won with little mini descriptions about the the photographs underneath:

lisaboggs-r20

"This was one of those photographs where you had to be right there in the action to get it in time! I was already following the best man and his girlfriend quite closely, as they had a ton of energy and were dancing wildly on the dance floor. In a span of seconds, I saw the girlfriend jump up on the best man, wrap her legs around him and then he proceeded to spin her around in the middle of the dance floor! I'm still not quite sure how I got this shot as the best man did not spin his girlfriend for long, but I'm so happy I did. It's a really fun, sexy, dynamic shot with lots of color and movement. Plus, I absolutely love the way the girlfriends hair looks in this photo. It's definitely a favorite reception photo of mine!"

LisaBoggs-r21

"My couple happened to be dentists (who even met at dental school) and they incorporated the teeth/dental theme throughout their wedding. I had conjured up a few ideas before the wedding that had the same motif, but when I saw that my couple had floss favors at their candy table (so cute, right?) I knew I had to take a photo of them flossing together. So, after my bride changed dresses for the evening, I had my couple head into the bathroom for the flossing photo. The best part about this shot, besides it being completely silly, was that they really did floss their teeth and thanked me for having them do so. Apparently they needed a good flossing and didn't know it!"

lisaboggs-r22 copy

"When I found out that my couple owned a 1965 Plymouth Fury, I just had to photograph them in it! I envisioned the groom in the driver's seat with the bride behind him and their hands clasped together outside of their windows (focusing on the hands with the couple slightly blurred in the background). I have to admit, it wasn't the most natural of poses, but once I put them there, it just worked. We were in an average neighborhood, so to make the photo more visually appealing, I crouched down on the ground and shot up toward them. I was very pleased with the result and it's one of my favorite couples portraits I've ever taken!"

Here's hoping I can nab a few more Fearless Photographers awards this year, but with so much talent to compete with, it's going to be really tough to do!  At any rate, I'll just keep pushing myself to try new things and continue grow as a photographer and a person.  That's the very best I can do!

Thanks so much for reading!

Andrea and Nicole's Old Town Alexandria and Lincoln Memorial Engagement Session!

I'm so excited to share my engagement session with Andrea and Nicole on the blog today!  I met Andrea and Nicole this past summer and I instantly felt like they were old pals of mine.  They're both gorgeous gals, super laid-back and incredibly fun to be around.  Not to mention, they are just smitten with each other and I love the energy they have between the two of them! For their engagement session, we decided to incorporate Old Town Alexandria (where they live) and the Lincoln Memorial to add a little DC edge!  Photographing Andrea and Nicole was a dream because they really connect with each other without too much direction.  They also could switch back and forth between looking like total models and being complete goofballs!  My favorite moment though was when I had positioned Andrea and Nicole on the ground with some leaves and started photographing above them.  We had some passers-by who had to exclaim, "Look!  Twins!" and we all had a big laugh over it.  Thanks so much for a ridiculously fun engagement session, Andrea and Nicole!  I can't wait for your wedding later this year!  :)

Saleena and Omar's Washington DC Engagement Session!

I'm super excited to share Saleena and Omar's engagement session with you today!  Saleena and Omar were a blast to work with .  Leading up to the engagement session Saleena and I texted back and forth about outfits for the two of them (which even included photos!).  So I got to play the role of stylist and photographer with them which was definitely different for me, but so much fun! As I'm sure you'll see from the photos, Saleena and Omar are not only gorgeous, but have an electric energy between them.  I did not have to instruct them how to pose very often, because they knew exactly what to do!  We were able to get some gorgeously bright and dramatic photos at the Lincoln Memorial and Georgetown Waterfront, which I'm sure you'll enjoy.  My very favorite is the one of them about to kiss in front of columns with Saleena's hair blowing in the wind.  :)  Enjoy!

Beeta and Ali's Stunning Persian Fairmont Hotel Wedding!

I am so excited to share Beeta and Ali's wedding at the Fairmont Hotel in DC with you today!  Beeta and Ali are two incredible people that I had the pleasure of meeting through some former clients of mine, Gina and Dan.  Like Gina and Dan, Beeta and Ali had a stunning Persian wedding with their closest family and friends and their wedding did not disappoint!  I probably took a record-setting number of photos due to how gorgeous Beeta, Ali, and their wedding guests looked, plus their Sofreh Aghd and reception were so breathtaking I couldn't stop myself! It's hard to say what I loved most about Beeta and Ali's wedding, but if I had to pick something, it would probably be how close all of their family and friends are to one another.  Particularly during the reception when they were all dancing, you know when big groups of people start forming a giant hug that they must really love each other!  Plus, this crowd really loves to dance and have a good time, so it was so fun and entertaining to photograph.  :)

Beeta and Ali, I can't thank you enough for having me along to be a part of your special day!  It was truly a pleasure and I hope you love the photos as much as I do.

Marta and Brian's Decatur House Wedding!

I'm so excited to share Marta and Brian's wedding with you today!  Marta and Brian have an incredible love story.  Marta is from Spain and happened to be working a job in DC at around the time Brian was in DC as well.  They both met at a local bar, fell in love, and the rest is history! When I think about Marta and Brian's wedding day, I just picture so much life, emotion and color.  The wedding day was certainly the culmination of a lot of emotions, as it took Marta a year to receive her fiancée visa.  As you'll see in the photos, there were tons of smiles, kisses happy tears now that Marta and Brian could get married and spend the rest of their lives together!

Marta and Brian, thank you so much for letting me be a part of your wedding day!  I was truly honored to be a part of it and hope you enjoy the photos as much as I do!  And, special thanks to HJ Planners for being so wonderful to work with.  This wedding was a blast!

Emily and Mike's Daughters of the American Revolution Wedding!

I recently had the pleasure of photographing an amazing couple, Emily and Mike, at the Daughters of the American Revolution Headquarters.  I love so much about this couple, but I think what I love most is their enthusiasm about being with one another.  When I first met up with Emily on their wedding day, she kept talking about meeting up with her husband (who still wasn't "officially" her husband quite yet) and would get this big toothy grin on her face.  Nothing else really mattered to her other than getting to see Mike and officially tying the knot.  And, once the two shared their first look, you could just see the immense happiness on both their faces.  I just knew these two people were meant to be! Emily and Mike's wedding day was perfectly beautiful.  I loved everything about their style as it was timeless and classic, just like them.  I admittedly could not stop staring at Emily's Suzanne Neville dress, because it was just so stunning and unlike anything I'd ever seen!  That and Mike's midnight blue tux wasn't too shabby either.  :)

Emily and Mike, thank you so much for including me in your special day.  I loved working with you, your family and friends...you were all such a loving, fun and vibrant group of people to work with.  I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I do!

Kim and Kevin's Springtime Engagement Session!

Today feels a bit like winter, but don't worry because those warm, springtime temperatures will be back in no time!  Also, why not warm up with these lovely engagement photos of Kim and Kevin?  Trust me, you'll feel the warmth with these beautiful, sun-kissed photos! I met Kim and Kevin down in DC last weekend to photograph their engagements among the newly blossomed trees.  First, I was introduced to their golden doodle, Macaroni (aka, Macki), who we took a few photos with before he had to leave us (he did so well, even for a four-month-old pup!).  Then we just spent some quality time among the gorgeous weeping cherry blossoms and weeping willows on Ohio Drive!  Kim and Kevin were all laughs and smiles the entire time, which really translates in the photos.  My favorite part though, was when Kim changed outfits and wore a tutu she bought specifically for the engagement shoot.  I about died when she showed it to me and couldn't wait to photograph it!  Conclusion: tutu's make everything better.  :)

Kim, Kevin and Macki, thanks so much for having me along to photograph your engagement photos!  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Ashley and Tom's Georgetown and Carnegie Institution for Science Wedding!

My first wedding of 2014 was with the most amazing couple ever, Ashley and Tom.  When I met first Ashley, I wanted to work with her instantly.  She is one of the sweetest individuals with the biggest, brightest smile I have ever seen.  We also figured out we have a ton of connections: she went to college with one of my high school soccer pals (who even recommended me!) and she lived and worked in my hometown of Nashville, Tennessee, which is where Tom proposed (more specifically in Noshville Delicatessen, a local fav)!  So when she officially hired me I was ecstatic and couldn't wait for their big day. Ashley and Tom's wedding was simple and classic.  They both got ready at the Loews Madison, a very clean and minimal hotel (perfect for details and portraits).  You'll note very quickly that I became a huge fan of their outdoor terrace that had giant green hedges!  One of my favorite shots of the day was what I call an unconventional family portrait.  When we were leaving the Madison, Ashley and her family walked out out together (the family all holding the veil) and they were all smiles and excited to leave for the ceremony.  I just love it because it's not your typical family photo!

Ashley and Tom's ceremony was at St. John's Episcopal Georgetown Parish.  My favorite photo of the day was taken literally just after Ashley and Tom had recessed down the aisle and passed through the blue church doors.  That excitement of being newlyweds was so palpable and I love that you can see it in the photo!  After we left Georgetown, we made our way to the reception space at Carnegie Institution for Science.  There are so many photos I love from the Carnegie, but the one that sticks out is of Tom's two groomsmen photobombing the bridesmaids photo.  That photo gives you a good indication of just how fun-loving and happy everyone was at Ashley and Tom's wedding!

Ashley and Tom, thank you so much for having me photograph you wedding!  You were an incredible couple to work with and I hope you enjoy your photos as much as I do.  And many thanks to my second shooter, Kristi Odom, and wedding planner extraordinaire, Tabitha Roberts, of Roberts and Co. Events!  Enjoy!

Erin and Cisco's Dumbarton House Wedding!

I love Erin and Cisco.  They're two people who just wanted to be married and have a giant celebration on their wedding day, which is my kind of couple! Erin and Cisco's wedding was full of so much personality.  Even though they're one of the most laid-back couples I've ever worked with and were never once uptight or nervous about anything, they managed to have fun with the entire day and portray every emotion imaginable.  There were happy laughs and happy tears, and any wedding that can combine those two elements is such a joy to photograph.

Erin and Cisco's big day started out at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC.  We all goofed around and got some great getting ready photos before we headed off to the Dumbarton House for the first look.  Erin and Cisco's first look was a very memorable one, mostly because I noticed Cisco was so happy to see Erin...but I didn't realize he was actually crying too!  So cute!  There were more tears and laughter during the ceremony, and one of my favorite parts was when Erin's mom was asked (by Erin's dad, the officiant) who gave Erin away, she accidentally said, "Her mother and I do!"  It was a wonderfully perfect moment for their ceremony!

After the ceremony, guests enjoyed amazing popsicles by Pleasant Pops, and golly was I glad they had those!  It was such a hot day and it really hit the spot, not to mention made some amazing photos (I love the one of Erin and Cisco eating their pops, doing everything they can to not spill on their wedding attire!).  Soon after cocktail hour began, Erin and Cisco joined for toasts from their amazing family and friends. Than we launched into dances, and I cried my eyes out when Cisco and his mother danced to "I'll Be There" by the Jackson 5.  It was so touching and I don't know why that's not danced to more!  Once dances were finished there was a beautiful dinner by Main Event Caterers, followed by so much dancing and music by DJ D-Mac that everyone was boogying to all night long.  Let me be clear in stating that Erin, Cisco and their family and friends are some of the best dancers I have EVER seen .  Cisco was out there rockin' it in his shades, we had a guy do the worm, and honestly I think every single guest was out there at some point.  I was so impressed!  And, of course, later in the night I took Erin and Cisco out for a romantic night photo on the Dumbarton grounds which turned out lovely.

Erin and Cisco, I can't say enough great things about you guys and your wedding!  I loved every single minute of it and I hope you, your family and friends enjoy the photos!  And a big shout out to my second photographer, Hannah, for all of her hard work on this one too!

Jen and Chris' Intimate W Washington DC Hotel Wedding!

When I met with Jen and Chris about their wedding at the W Washington DC Hotel, I felt like we were old friends.  We hit it off immediately and told jokes like we had known each other for years, so I felt very comfortable with the two of them when their wedding rolled around.  Jen and Chris chose the W Hotel because they love going their to eat, drink, relax, take in the amazing views from the POV Lounge and so on.  So it made perfect sense to have their wedding there! I loved Jen and Chris' wedding because there was so much emotion.  It was clear Jen and Chris were just so excited to have found one another and were tying the knot at last among their close friends.  There were happy tears shed by all (myself included) and it was such a joy to witness.  Even though Jen and Chris had a smaller wedding, I still loved their attention to detail and the fact they wanted to take some dramatic photos around the W Hotel to commemorate the occasion.  We had such a fun time walking around and talking about the day, while I took photos here and there.  Whether these two were posing, laughing, crying, being sassy...they were just such a pleasure to work with.  I'd photograph them again in a heartbeat!

Jen and Chris, thank you so much for having me photograph your wedding!  You guys were amazing to work with and I hope you enjoy your photos!  :)
