• Nik + Lindy

I have to admit that I was a little nervous about this one. The government is shut down and Lindy has always dreamed of having portraits with the national monuments! However, despite the barricades and massive amount of tourists, we made it happen!! The only way to shoot portraits around DC on a weekend with a gov’t shut down is to have an amazing group of friends in your bridal party AND you have to have a stretch hummer! :) Michael and I loved riding around DC with Nik and Lindy and their best friends. As we sat in the limo and headed to their ceremony, I was reminded of just how awesome this job is. We get to spend so much time with our couples on their wedding day and that’s such a privilege!! Nik and Lindy are just amazing. They have a story that not many have. Dating for 9 years is quite an accomplishment and so their wedding day was SUCH a celebration!!

Friend and family who have watched them grow up together have been waiting for this day for a LONG time and it was finally here!!! And it was beautiful. Everything was just lovely from beginning to end! As soon as I walked into the hotel room that morning, and saw Lindy’s dress, I knew it was going to be a good day!! Gorgeous!!! She was stunning and I knew she would be. Lindy just has this grace and elegance about her that is so beautiful.  I can totally see why Nik thinks he’s the luckiest guy in the world. :) As they shared their vows, exchanged rings and shared a kiss, their 9 year journey turned a new corner… a BIG corner! We couldn’t be more excited for them as they start their new life together as husband and wife!! We remember that transition and it was so much fun!!

Nik and Lindy, you two have been such a blessing to us this fall!! We love you, we love your story and we LOVED being a part of your amazing wedding day! I can’t wait to see all that God has in store for your marriage!! xoxoxo

Love this…

Of course the girls dresses match the church!!

Coolest “Hey, I just got married!” shot to date! 

Happy dance!! I’m not sure if they were dancing because family formals were done or because they just got married!! Probably both:)

Just gorgeous!!!

Haha Nik is SO excited!! I mean, they’ve waited 9 years for this day! I would be too!!

Loved their reception!

  42. Tangie reply

    Very nice photos. I love the “I just got married” shot!!!

  43. Julia reply

    Hey Katelyn!

    I was wonderng if you use flash/your light setup when photographing reception details, or if you just use a lens like the 50mm that allow a lot of light so no additional light is needed? I find when I am shooting a ceremony my shots with flash with people in them look great, but with details I am struggling with making them look good and not like fake flash (i use bounce flash)

    Any tips would help. Thanks! Love ya girl! :)

    – Julia

  44. Cate Waters reply
