My interview with Junebug is up today, in which they call me “one of D.C and Maryland’s best wedding photographers” The interview includes a lot of never before seen work from this past year.
“it’s easy to take a flawless picture – but wrangling chaos and flaws into some sort of beauty can be difficult. I have to struggle against making everything perfect, personally. But I think the most beautiful images have imperfection somewhere.”
I’ve kept this one under my hat for a little bit, as it was just published on Junebug Weddings, but finally here it is! Lea’s and Matt’s Secret Garden Wedding, which Lea and I share as childhood favorite book. The art deco touches were icing on the cake. The venue, Cylburn Arboretum was a perfect choice, as well as stunning locally sourced flowers from Local Color Flowers and excellent farm to table food by Clementine. Another coincidence — Lea’s bouquet was Lily of the Valley, which I had at my own wedding. Lea and I connected like sisters over the magic of fairy tale, chased lightning bugs and stories and I’m so glad I got a chance to work with the two of them and their family. A VERY special shout out to Mantas Kubilinskas (aka, the Lithuanian Shadow), one of my favorite photographers in the DC area, a now dear friend, who co-shot this wedding with me and got some superb images of the guys getting ready. Go give him some love, internet!
I got a perfect shot of this guy, which means Lea and Matt have been inducted into my secret bee club.
