Destination Wedding at Sunrise, Washington DC



An intimate wedding as the sun rose over Washington DC, the bride and groom spoke their vows, just the two of them, no officiant, because in DC you can self unite ; marry yourselves.  It was just the couple, and me, plus some early morning joggers. So honored and lucky to witness and photograph this intimate wedding of two awesome people.


As the bride got ready, the groom watered the plants.

The bride came out to let the groom know it was time to get ready, as her hair and makeup were near complete.

The couple chose to get ready together, in their home. I wish more couple got ready together- you feel the excitement of the day, less stress, and it ‘s just fun.

Celebrating ensued where the couple first met, a bar, named Lyon Hall.  The place had just opened, so we were able to be seated exactly at the same spot where the bride said to the groom as he walked by- “Hey,You’re Cute.”   A bottle of champagne and some fun vintage inspired / paparrazzi flash photography was the perfect way to celebrate.

We can’t thank you enough for coming to shoot our wedding. You helped make our day so special and you provided us with photographic memories that will last a lifetime. We had so much fun around Dc with you!”

Fun snipets from the day- fancy myself a filmmaker.
