Scott + Leslie Wedding

Scott & Leslie tied the knot last weekend in a beautiful ceremony in the old village of Falls Church, VA. The couple wed in the First Presbyterian Church of Fairfax in an intimate ceremony officiated by Scott’s brother Bob. I really enjoyed taking pictures inside this church as it had a beautiful high wooden ceiling, which reflected the warm lighting of the room and provided a beautiful setting. The reception that followed took place in the Old Town Hall in the center of Falls Church. A nice setting for the party and right next to a park where we were able to capture some tender shots of the couple.

Edjah Proposes to Kelley at Wentworth Mansion!

The best part about being a wedding photographer is the ability to capture some of the happiest moments of a persons life. Its not everyday that someone asks for their proposal to be photographed so I was very excited to be able to capture this moment for Edjah and Kelly. The night Edjah proposed was one of those perfectly beautiful summers nights in Charleston, SC. From the top of the Wentworth Mansion the entire city is visible and as the sun set over the rooftops of Charleston, Edjah proposed to Kelley… and she said YES!!! Below are some of my favorite images from the night. Best of luck planning the wedding guys!

James and Tamara chose the site of the 2009 US Open to hold their magical outdoor ceremony! I didn’t know this before attending the wedding but the Bethpage Country Club is actually a state park! The couple was an absolute joy to work with and the setting could not have been more perfect. The falling evening light was idyllic adding a glow to an already beautiful scene. I especially enjoy the image below of the light reflecting off Tamara’s gown.

James and Tamara took salsa lessons leading up to their wedding. This shot was taken as James grabbed Tamara for an impromptu dance outside the reception hall. I love this image because I feel it captures the playfulness of their relationship.
