Katharine and Gary Married

Katharine and Gary were married at the Airlie Center on the 7th anniversary of their first date. These two high school sweethearts had one of the most gorgeous weddings we’ve photographed. Soft, romantic, vintage details were paired with an updated style and a dash of Scottish heritage. At the reception guests enjoyed a cigar and candy bar, a clear roof tent to appreciate the beautiful surroundings, and a very spirited entertainer with a flawless voice, Alfio. Tara of Perfect Planning Events and her team did an amazing job as always!...

Changes Ahead

Posted by on 8:55 pm in News | 10 comments

There are lots of changes brewing (and growing) with Jess and I. As you all know, Jess and Nils are expecting their first child in early July! We are all so thrilled to meet baby Latos/Thomsen and document her adventures with poodles, Abigail and Parker. The news that might come as a shock is that I will be leaving the DC area in January 2016. Phil and I have decided to sell most of the things we own, buy a van, and spend a year traveling the United States and Canada. We will spend our time hiking, rock climbing and visiting friends. And of...

Ellen and Ryan Married

Ellen and Ryan’s wedding was like a simple love song. Sweet, intimate, beautiful. The pair were married at Woodend Sanctuary in Chevy Chase MD. It was the perfect backdrop for an event filled with love, laughter and their non-traditional style. Ellen was pretty in pink! A perfect choice for the daytime event. Guests enjoyed lawn games, tulips, and tasty treats. Often our favorite part of the reception is speeches and toasts, its when we get to know our clients the best. These speeches didn’t disappoint and made it even more clear...

Michele and Ryan Married

Michele and Ryan were married at the picturesque Running Hare Vineyard in Prince Frederick, MD. After the first look and while we photographed the wedding party, the guests enjoyed a wine tasting near the ceremony site. They then watched as the pair exchanged vows while carpenter bees buzzed around their heads. The reception included heartfelt speeches, delicious food, dancing, and one epic bouquet catch. These families were filled with so much love, fun and ridiculousness! And were a blast to document. venue- Running Hare Vineyard hair and...

So many awesome details, vendors, and prettiness, we were beside ourselves! Julia and Brad were married at The Oaks Waterfront Inn in Easton Maryland on an inlet of the Chesapeake Bay.

Jen + Justin Married

One big happy family! That is what Jen and Justin have. And the love they have for their family shows in the way they love each other. The pair were married at one of our favorite venues, Riverside on the Potomac in Leesburg, VA. Their coordinator, Delia Anne, was a pleasure to work with. Rain was inevitable, but it held off just long enough to complete the ceremony and family portraits. It drizzled while Justin twirled Jen in the field and then came down when we are all tucked away in the barn for the reception. This wedding was full of...

Allyson + Perry Married

Sometimes all you want is to be with someone that makes you laugh and Allyson and Perry are surrounded! The pair were married at the Gaithersburg Marriott in the Washingtonian Center under a beautiful chuppah and an isle lined with cherry blossoms. The soft elegant details were the perfect opposite to the fun, lively crew. A few details that stand out… the first look with an emotional audience, the non traditional father/daughter dance, and the amazingly talented band, Spectrum. Venue: Gaithersburg Marriott Washingtonian Center Flowers:...

Megan + Cory Married

Happy Snow Day! I have been meaning to blog this one for a few months now and since we are all stuck home I figure today is the day! These two goofballs got married at the Jack Rose Dinning Saloon in DC. Megan and Cory were so much fun to photograph! We walked around the block taking photos of the two of them then headed in for the ceremony and cocktail party. As the pair stepped up to the bar good friend Clay was waiting there to marry them. One of my favorite ring shots of the year is below… thanks to my assistant Mark Johnson for...

A Rooftop Proposal

This past weekend we photographed Mark’s proposal to Lindsay on the rooftop of the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel in Bethesda MD. Mark had been planning this for some time. First he went to Leslie Sandler for the perfect ring, then lost 16 lbs, named a star after Lindsay, hired us, made an awesome collage explaining all the ways he loves her, and had his brother set up the rooftop. Lindsay’s reaction was priceless and the energy was infectious! Lindsay’s first phone call was to her 6 year old son to tell him the good news. The...

Joe’s Bar Mitzvah

Joe’s Bar Mitzvah was our last event of 2014! Both the service and party were held at Lakewood Country Club. Joe’s aunt flew east from California to perform a very special service. The theme of the party, “Not Your Average Joe”, was executed perfectly by Fox Ventures. Talk of the Town provided the games and entertainment. MC Spots and his crew at Glyde Productions kept the party lively and the adults on the dance...
