Laura and Rich

Allison Britton has been keeping me busy assisting her photographing the weddings of many wonderful couples.   Earlier in April, I had the pleasure of assisting her at Laura and Rich’s wedding in Virginia.  The weather this spring has been great and this day was no exception; the rain held of until after dark.  The ceremony was held at the historic Aquia Church.

 

Gari Melchers Home and Studio at Belmont proved a lovely setting for the reception.  And what a fun reception it was! Laura, her family and friends were joined by Rich’s family and friends, most of whom travelled all the way from England to attend.

 

 

 

Allison and I were joined by Jamie from Borrowed Blue Photography, who gave me some fresh ideas and perspectives on wedding photography.  Thanks Jamie!

I wish Laura and Rich all the best in their new lives together.

Lindsey and Devin

Allison Britton asked me to photograph as her second during the wedding of a member of her extended family.  The wedding was beautiful, the bride was radiant, and the weather was perfect.  Though late in beginning, the ceremony and reception were worth the wait as family and friends gathered to celebrate the marriage of a couple who radiated their love for each other.

I had the privilage of photographing both Devin getting ready and Lindsey before she came down for the ceremony.  Allison made more beautiful images of Lindsey getting ready, but I enjoyed the opportunity to take a few as well.

 

The ring bearer and flower girl were about the cutest children I have seen!

The ceremony itself was very moving.

After the ceremony, Allison did a wonderful job of flow posing.  I made these two images over her shoulder.

Back inside, Devin and Lindsey took several turns around the dance floor looking very in love and happy.

Here are a few other scenes from the day.

I want to extend my best wishes to Devin and Lindsey for a happy and healthy life together.  And as always, my thanks to Allison for allowing me to assist her in photographing.

 

Everybody Wins! DC Gala

On Tuesday evening, Everybody Wins! DC held their 13th Annual Gala at the Washington Hilton.  This is a fabulous organization with a committed staff and many devoted, dedicated volunteers.  I was honored to be asked to create photographs of the evening.  The evening began with a reception and a silent auction.  Bob Levy was the Master of Ceremonies during the awards dinner and live auction.  He is pictured below with Everybody Wins! Executive Director Mary Salander.           The NOVA Winds String Quartet provided music during the reception.  An awards dinner and live auction followed.        

 

During dinner, guests were entertained by student singers from Thomson Elementary School and The Compassionates.     It was heartwarming to see so many people supporting the valuable work of Everybody Wins! DC.  Congratulations to all on a great Gala.  

ESP Photoshoot

Last weekend I joined a group of amazing photographers at Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia.  We were joined by a great makeup artist (Nicole) and some wonderful models who suffered mightily in the cold weather.  Here are some of my favorite images that I made that weekend.   

               Many thanks to Allison Britton for organizing and including me in this fabulous event.
