Alison's New England Portrait

Tuesday, September 24, 2013 | Portraits

You might remember my bride Georgetown bride Alison, whose wedding I photographed a few years ago (see here, here, and here). She's now living in Rhode Island and I have caught up with her many times in during travel shoots and weddings when I'm in New England. This time, we took a few headshots exploring a little Connecticut town and fishing docks. I absolutely cherish her as a friend and feel so lucky to meet the amazing people I do photographing weddings.

being a bridesmaid

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 | Behind the Scenes

This past June, I was a bridesmaid in one of my best friend's wedding. I donned a gray, ruffled collar taffeta gown and enjoyed the amazing day. Here's a few tidbits and tips I put together on being a bridesmaid. Any other ideas?

1) Smile all the time. It helps set the tone. It helps you relax. A frowning bridesmaid stands out in a photo.

2) Help out the bride with whatever she needs. And set up your own transportation home and your own lodging.

3) Use your hair style and accessories to be yourself if you're wearing a matching dress. You'll be more comfortable.

4) Don't carry or bring too much, don't expect wedding planners to carry things for you. Your make-up will last all evening.

5) When you're walking down the aisle, don't walk too fast. Keep your head up. Don't look at the camera. Look around, smile, take it in!

6) Try not to take too many iPhone photos. Enjoy the day.

7) If you're giving a speech, keep it to three minutes and under five minutes. Avoid inside jokes or anything that would make you cringe later. Keep it classy, heartfelt and inspiring.

8) Be sensible about footwear. You might need some comfy flats for the end of the evening. Save the flip flops for the dance floor, they don't look good in photos.

9) Help get the party started on the dance floor (who else is going to do it?)

10) Never stop smiling.

details on the Chesapeake

Sunday, September 1, 2013 | Travel

I photographed these images for Victoria Magazine's summer story on the Chesapeake. The Eastern Shore of Maryland is only about an hour and half drive from Washington, DC and makes for a beautiful day on the water, eating crabs and moseying around the maritime museum and surrounding docks.

{ One of my favorite places is the Inn at Perry Cabin in St. Michaels where I've photographed many weddings over the years.}
