2016 Behind the Scenes

Dec 20, 2016

I’m pretty sure this is my favorite post of the entire year! Don’t get me wrong, I love nothing more than sharing the stories of my amazing couples and their big day, but there is something so fun about going behind the scenes to show a day in the life of a Washington, DC wedding photographer. In one of my recent client reviews, a bride told me I made her feel like family and I found that to be the highest compliment; when I arrive in the bridal suite, I never want it to feel like a stranger is in the room and that we’ve built a bond over a year of planning for this moment. Because trust me, as you’ll see below, we get very close in a hurry! Without further adieu, some of my favorite moments of 2016!
