Debbie and Adam live outside of Washington D.C. so I don’t get to see them very often. When they came into town this weekend I couldn’t wait to share their beautiful album with them. It was fun to relive the wedding day. We had wonderful weather and so many special moments. They started laughing when they saw the cake photo because they remembered that their cake knife was falling apart when they tried to cut the cake. So they had to make it work! Debbie and Adam – I wish you two all the very best in the next chapter of your lives.

Happy First Anniversary to Debbie and Adam

Congratulations to Debbie and Adam on their first anniversary! Their wedding day last year was absolutely beautiful! Their afternoon ceremony at St. Peter in Chains Cathedral was filled with many emotional moments – from her father lifting the blusher veil to the smiling groom at the altar. Their fun reception at Hilton Netherland, Hall of Mirrors included a five tiered wedding cake centerpiece. My favorite part of the reception was the dance with the parents. It started as a slow song and then switched to a really fun mash up of popular songs including Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) and Starships.  What a fun surprise! Congrats you two! We wish you all the very best! To see more of their wedding photos, be sure to check out their blog post.

Debbie and Adam are some of the nicest people I have ever met. I am so glad that Debbie’s cousin Rebecca recommended us because we loved working with their family again. The first time that Debbie and I talked on the phone I just knew we would have so much fun together for their engagement session and wedding day. The weather was perfect and I can remember walking into the girls getting room with a big smile on my face. Their day was here and I couldn’t wait to say hello and see all of the details including her blue shoes. The perfect cast of wedding vendors were coming together to create something wonderful! After a few relaxed portraits with the girls, we headed over to the church to meet the guys. It was great to see Adam in a classic bow tie and black tux. The afternoon ceremony at St. Peter in Chains Cathedral was filled with many emotional moments – from her father lifting the blusher veil to the smiling groom at the altar. After a few church formals we headed to Piatt Park for some fun with the bridal party. Don’t you just love the purples of the bridesmaids’ dresses – they look amazing against the yellow leaves in the background. When we arrived at the Hilton Netherland Plaza the couple had a chance to see their reception room and how wonderful it turned out. The room revel was stunning with the five tiered wedding cake as the centerpiece! My favorite part of the reception was the dance with the parents. It started as a slow song and then switched to a really fun mash up of popular songs including Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) and Starships.  What a fun surprise! Debbie and Adam it has been so wonderful to work with you both and your families. It is an honor to be your wedding photographers! We wish you two all the very best. A special thanks to their talented vendors who made everything beautiful!

We just receive Debbie and Adams’s engagement book and it looks great. Who doesn’t love a rainbow with a cute couple? Their Alms Park engagement session was so much fun. We were almost rained out but then the sun came back out again. We can’t wait for their wedding in just a few weeks!

The first time I met Debbie on the phone I just knew we would have so much fun working together. Her original engagement session was stormed out in November. We were both watching the weather reports closely last week to see if we would have better luck. Since they were coming from out of town I knew we wanted to make it work. On the day of their session it was a little cloudy but it hadn’t rained much -until we were a few minutes into their session. It began pouring! So instead of waiting the storm out in our cars (my phone was telling me that the storm would take an hour or so to pass) we headed down the street for coffee. It was great to get to know Adam more and to work on the timeline and location ideas for the wedding. As soon as the rain stopped we hopped in our cars and headed back up to Alms Park. When we parked I looked up and saw a rainbow! We took advantage of the rainbow and the great weather. The couple actually got engaged last year the day after St. Patrick’s Day, how cool is that! It ended up being the perfect evening with just the right temperature and the sun peeking through the clouds right before it set! Debbie and Adam thanks for sticking out the rain with me, I am so glad we did! I can’t wait for your wedding this September – hopefully after all this rain, your wedding day weather will be perfect.
