Family Portraits at the Jefferson Memorial :: Washington DC Portrait Photographer

It was a beautiful, although somewhat chilly & windy, morning in May when I met up with this wonderful family for a fun family portrait session.  They wanted something “very DC” and I think we accomplished just that.  Enjoy!

Twin Newborn Portrait Session :: Arlington, Virginia Portrait Photographer

After Judie’s British Baby Shower at the Mayflower Hotel, you just knew the boys would have a British themed nursery didn’t you?!

It was so wonderful to meet the boys and be able to photograph their first family portrait session.

I also was so thrilled to design their Christmas Card/Birth Announcement.  I love designing these custom cards and for babies born in the fall, sending out a combination card is popular every year!

A British Baby Shower at the Mayflower Hotel :: Washington DC Photographer

Last summer my long time friend Judie hired me to photograph her baby shower.  It was a really magnificent baby shower!  Since Judie’s husband John is British, it was a perfectly themed afternoon tea at the Mayflower Hotel.

Judie & John’s adorable twins were born in October and I was so honored to photograph their newborn and family portrait session.  You can see the twins’ session and their custom designed Christmas card/ birth announcement here.

A Surprise Proposal in Georgetown :: Washington DC Engagement Photographer

Last fall Renz contacted me about stealthy photographing him as he proposed to his girlfriend Neda.  He wanted to propose on a boat and he wanted it to be a surprise. Since they were traveling to DC from out of town, I helped Renz find a boat – which was not as easy in October as it would be in the summer of course.  But it all went on without a hitch and I boarded Potomac Riverboat Company‘s Miss Mallory in Alexandria, Virginia for a Monument Tour and did my best to act like a tourist.  At the predetermined time, I made my way to the lower deck and waited for Renz to propose to Neda.  In such tight quarters I was sure Neda would think something was up but she didn’t notice me at all.

After Renz proposed (and Neda said yes!), we disembarked in Georgetown for a portrait session.  Luckily Neda’s sister was in on the surprise and had convinced her to buy a new dress for what she hoped would be a romantic cruise.  After spending sometime on the Canal, Neda was in for a second surprise as her parents and sister met them to congratulate the newly betrothed.  The whole clan headed to Farmers Fishers Bakers for a champagne toast.

It was such a fun afternoon & I had hope to photograph more surprise proposals in the future!Georgetown Surprise Proposal - Washington DC EngagementGeorgetown Surprise Proposal - Washington DC EngagementGeorgetown Surprise Proposal - Washington DC EngagementGeorgetown Surprise Proposal - Washington DC EngagementGeorgetown Surprise Proposal - Washington DC Engagementgeorgetown-surprise-proposal0064Georgetown Surprise Proposal - Washington DC EngagementGeorgetown Surprise Proposal - Washington DC EngagementGeorgetown Surprise Proposal - Washington DC Engagement

Temple Emanu El Wedding in Cleveland, Ohio

I love that moment when a bride & groom first see each other on their wedding day – whether it be during a “first look” or at the altar or, as during a traditional Jewish wedding, when the groom uncovers the veil of his bride during the bedeken.  This moment was truly special during Abby & Yoshi’s wedding this past weekend at Temple Emanu El in Cleveland, Ohio.  I look forward to sharing more images from this wedding soon!
