The Anderson House has always been one of my favorite wedding venues in the Washington, DC region. I first photographed a wedding there in 2018 and have returned several times since — for a proposal, an anniversary, and more weddings — each time exploring new nooks within this opulent paradise in the heart of the district!
I was excited to return to The Anderson House at the Society of the Cincinnati once again to capture an editorial composed by Elizabeth of East Made Event Co. One of the things that stuck out to me most about this shoot were the four different gowns from Naeem Khan. Khan is an Indian-American fashion designer who produces both bridal and every day collections. His gowns combine his love of ‘clean and elegant silhouettes’ with unique fabrics and styles that create a totally fresh take on a timeless designs.
Most of the gowns featured in the shoot had not even been released to the public at the time they were photographed. The dresses came in a variety of styles including bridal capes, blush satin, beaded tulle, and floral embroidery. Each dress was more beautiful than the last and I loved how Elizabeth styled each dress with its own, personalized backdrop — four gowns in four locations at one stunning property. Enjoy exploring each one below, along with some stunning flatlays, florals, and cakes provided by a variety of talented vendors who are credited at the end of this post!
Please be sure to explore all of the talented artists who made this editorial a reality!
