Megan and Kevin's Georgetown Wedding - Sneak Peeks!

This past weekend I was honored to photograph Megan and Kevin's wedding in the heart of Georgetown!  Megan and Kevin were married at Dahlgren Chapel on Georgetown University's campus and then held their reception at Sequoia on the Georgetown waterfront.  We had so many great photographic opportunities along the way, but here are two of my favorites from the big day so far!  The first was taken among the apartments that Megan lived in when she attended Georgetown (loved all the shapes and lines!), and the second was taken by the waterfront overlooking the Potomac and Kennedy Center.  I hope you love them as much as I do!  Enjoy! m&k_georgetown_wedding_01

Dyanne and Steven's Mad Men Engagement Session!

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting up with Dyanne and Steven for their awesome Mad Men engagement session at the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner!  Eeeeeeeeeeek! When I first met with Dyanne and Steven to learn about their wedding, I knew I wanted to work with them because they're two of the nicest people ever.  However, as they talked further about their plans for an engagement session, specifically a Mad Men inspired engagement session, I was completely hooked.  We all sat there and talked about the show for a while, and Dyanne cited a bunch of still photos from the show that she was drawing inspiration from.  My heart fluttered in anticipation to hear back from them about working together, and when they emailed to book me, I was elated!

On the day of the shoot, Dyanne brought all of the inspiration photos we had talked about.  Some were still shots from the show, some were from stylized photo sessions of the actors, and some were other stylized shoots that had that Mad Men look.  The shots were incredible, and I was really excited to recreate/reinterpret them!  We had a blast working in the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner, specifically in one of their suites, their restaurant, Härth, and their stunning lobby bar.  The minimalist look of the hotel really worked with the glitz and glamour of the outfits that Dyanne and Steven wore!  And let me just say, I had about 50 audible gasps when it came to how stunning Dyanne looked in her Mad Men dresses (all from Rent the Runway).  TO DIE FOR!

I hope you enjoy these photos from the shoot!  Thanks so much for looking!

Thanks again for looking!
