Welcome to my blog, where I share highlights of everything from my client's wedding days and portrait sessions, to recent features and our adventures around the world. 

Hi, I'm Alicia.

National Press Club Wedding

Sep 30, 2014

Andrea and Esteban were married at the National Press Club in Washington, DC this past September and are one of the most fun loving couples I have had the opportunity to work with this year.  I mean, I truly think all of my couples are fun….but Andrea is a bit non traditional (in an awesome way!) because instead of worrying so much about what the color scheme for the day would be, she focused on making sure their guests had the absolute best time possible; they had family coming in from all over the country and didn’t want to disappoint! Esteban was able to convince one of his favorite local bands, Nayas, to reunite for their wedding night and they were simply amazing — everyone was out dancing as soon as they started! And they didn’t stop until 2:00am… well, I mean the guests didn’t stop dancing until 2:00am — the band and DJ took turns so that the music was always fresh!

Since the ceremony began after dark, we were out of natural light when it ended and left with few options for outdoor portraits. But like I told you, these two are pretty awesome and agreed to do a day-after session (sunrise, to boot!) at the iconic Lincoln Memorial! I think it was the perfect way to end all their wedding celebrations and I truly wish them nothing but the best!! Also, it didn’t hurt that they were able to bring their super cute bulldog, Basil, along with them for our shoot :)

 
 
 
 
 
I know a lot of photographers have (totally understandable) gripes with cell phones/other camera being present during the ceremony because it can mean them missing key shot… But this was one of those rare, awesome exceptions where it is a great thing. See Andrea’s sister was unable to attend in person and watched the entire ceremony via Facetime!!
