Amy & Tim ~ May 14, 2011

10 Jun

I have been meaning to post this blog for awhile and am so excited to share images from Amy & Tim’s Wedding at Tarara Winery!

When Amy & Tim fell in love with wine as they were falling in love with each other. Some of their first dates would be taking scenic drives through Virginia and popping in for a refreshment at small wineries along the way. The first time they visited Tarara, it felt right. Perhaps it was the smiley staff or the great tasting wine but if I had to guess, it was probably the long conversations Amy and Tim would get  lost in together, or the laughs they shared from old stories that would turn into new memories of time spent together.

Amy & Tim are enamored with each other. I felt so honored to photograph their wedding because I was the witness for the day. I can’t tell you what it feels like to be watching/documenting  a wedding when it is stripped down to the incredible beauty of two people committing to each other for a lifetime. Magical, is the first word that comes to mind! I found myself wiping away my own tears as I clicked the shutter and looked on as Tim took his turn and vowed his love to Amy. Quietly listening, she beamed proudly with the kind of joy and happiness that can take your breath away.

Amy & Tim – Thank you so very much allowing me to be a part of such an amazing day! I know you both found your missing piece and I wish you happiness for the rest of your days!


Ashley & Steve: An Engagement Session!

31 Mar

Last week, I met up with Ashley and Steve for a fun engagement session at East Potomac Park. Even though the clouds hung heavier than the cherry blossoms and spring decided not to make an appearance, we decided to bundle up and go for it!  Ashley was the brave one of the group,  instead of wearing her jacket she tossed it aside and in its place donned the most beautiful smile.

Steve and Ashley are just adorable! They are truly best friends and in between laughing and smiling with each other they cuddled with their adorable puppy Desmond! Even though the time we spent with each other was short, I had such a fun time getting to know them!

Thank you so much Ashley & Steve! You both are so sweet!

PS: I hope you the traffic didn’t keep you from enjoying dinner!
