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.

Washington, DC Wedding Elopement

Mar 5, 2019

Within the past year or so, I’ve begun to notice a new trend in the Washington, DC wedding industry. There has been a huge rise in the number of inquiries I receive from couples who are planning an intimate wedding or elopement;  Chi and Dayne’s was the third I’ve photographed in the past sixth months alone (check out this Jefferson Hotel wedding and this DC War Memorial wedding) and I have to say, I kind of love this idea! On one hand, as a bride, it would be hard for me to decide if I wanted a big, gorgeous DAR Constitution Hall wedding or something smaller with just close friends and family… but as DC wedding photographer, I’m in the perfect position to enjoy both! I love helping my clients plan for both types of affairs and it makes my job even more exciting to have variety each and every weekend. 

Chi and Dayne opted to share their special day with just those they love most — their parents and siblings. They recently invested in a new home together and decided that they wanted to spread the joy of marriage across several years of vacations and experiences with one another rather than on one day alone. It was such a privilege to be in the room amongst their five witnesses and to document this moment for the rest of their lives. After the “I do’s”, we then headed over to the iconic US Capitol for a sunset portrait session. Being February, we all expected and prepared for the worst. Instead, we were welcomed with a balmy 65 degree day, full of blue skies and bright sun! We stayed out until just past sunset, so we could head over to the Library of Congress for a few shots there as well. The winds began to pick up almost instantaneously as the sun dropped, but I sort of love how it made those photos even more authentic.

So no matter what sort of wedding my clients choose is best for them, I’m just excited to capture them as a couple and the day as it unfolds. Chi and Dayne, thank you for letting me be part of this day!
