My dad called me randomly one night on the way home from work. He told me that he was at a business dinner and overheard two girls talking about needing a wedding photographer. So, naturally, my dad (who can pretty much become friends with ANYONE) interrupted and told them that his daughter was a wedding photographer and gave them my card. You gotta love proud dads 🙂 I never thought anything would come of it..but the next day I got an inquiry in my inbox from Perry! We met at a coffee shop in Alexandria and ended up talking for over an hour…we immediately hit it off and I had been looking forward to her wedding day ever since!
Perry and her bridesmaids are just the sweetest group of girls I’ve ever worked with. They made me feel so welcomed and so loved…I miss them all already! None of them even questioned me when I made a curtain cocoon in the bridal suite so that I could shoot the details with white reflectors…haha!! They all trusted me and my creativity and that always makes for some of my FAVORITE wedding day blog posts!
John and Perry: Thank you both so, so much for inviting me into your special day! I feel so blessed to have worked with you two and I hope you are having an AMAZING honeymoon so far!!! Enjoy some of my favorites!
LOVE Perry’s oval ring!!! So stunning!
SUCH a beautiful bride!!!
Cutest little ring bearer I’ve ever seen!!
SWEETEST father-daughter dance!!! Not a dry eye in the room!
