My Thought Process | Lens for Reception Details

  • Ask Anything

Last week I photographed my first greek wedding and the getting ready portion of the day was a bit different and challenging because of the lighting and because of our time restraint. So, I created a blog post that basically walked through what was going on inside of my head during that part of the day. In some ways, I sound crazy… but evidently, it was helpful! We’re so thankful for the response and so we decided to do it again!! If you’re enjoying these “case studies” of sorts from our recent weddings, let us know and we’ll continue to enhance these posts and keep them coming!!

  • Georgetown Canal & Waterfront Engagement Pictures

You know when you have a feeling that you’re going to love someone after emailing with them a few times? That is exactly how I felt about Sally. Ever since her first email, I just loved her and I have been looking forward to meeting her. We pulled into Georgetown and it started raining. My heart sank and I hoped for a break. David and Sally showed up and as soon as we started walking towards the canal, the sprinkles stopped and they didn’t return!
