Washington DC Wedding

I feel like I’m posting the wedding photos for old friends on this one…  Our experience shooting Sasame and Charlie’s wedding in D.C. was similar to our first meeting with them on skype.  Lots of laughter and when we were finished, Adam and I couldn’t stop talking about how awesome they were.  :)  We were counting down the days until meeting them in person, seeing (and cheering!) for their hitching celebration, and joining afterward for some camera-free dancing with the whole gang.  I think that in a lot of ways Sasame and Charlie had our dream wedding- small and informal, held at the Spanish Steps down the street from their place.  They followed with a DANCING reception at Hillyer Art Space, just a few blocks away. If that doesn’t sound perfect enough-they were escorted (New Orleans style) by a brass band the few blocks to their reception.  Anyone who knows us knows… we are all about New Orleans Jazz, and it is often in the background as the playlist to our lives, so paired with dancing guests and lots of honking horns, this was perfection!  :)  But like we mentioned- it was more perfect for us because we felt like we had known these two for longer, and are thrilled to have met them in time to see their wedding!  So, here’s a few favorites from Sasame and Charlie’s wedding in DC!

New York Engagement SessionJane and Jon could quite possibly be two of the most genuinely kind hearts that ever lived.  From our first chat with them on skype we knew they’d be a joy to work with, and meeting them in New York City for the engagement session didn’t disappoint.  With their creative spirits (he’s in film and she’s a web designer), love for delicious local food, and great taste in music there was plenty to chat about.  I believe it goes without saying that they are perhaps THE perfect subjects to have in front of the camera, and adding that magnificent New York skyline into the mix made it hard to stop taking pictures of them!  We’re so looking forward to their wedding this fall, and if their friends are anything like they are it’s sure to be an amazing celebration!New York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement Session

  • Olivia Vale - Pure mastery, my dear friends. This is one amazing shoot :)

The warm fuzzies that Adam and I feel when we even simply see or say their names are overwhelming, and the tears that ran down my cheeks just looking at the photos from their wedding were full of admiration and appreciation for their kind, caring, and genuine sweet selves.  All I could think during their wedding was that these two are the “salt of the earth”, the kind of people who light up people’s lives and leave lasting impressions.  It’s people like Sister and David that remind us of the important things in life- friends, family and faith- and inspire us all to make each second count towards something greater.  So, while these photos are some of our all time favorites, we hope that you see more than a composition and pretty light, because the people in them are worth taking note of.  :)

  • Sam - OMG! This wedding is pure #gangnamstyle! So cool that it is in an airport hanger :-). LOVE THIS!

  • lauren casile - you are a poet. you sculpt not just light and shadows but words and prose. :) thank you for sharing. i love you guys.

  • Kristi Wright - Beautiful as always but my favorite it the shot of the groom by himself – 3rd photo down. Love the moment!

Every now and then, holidays or other special dates (9-10-11 or 11-11-11, for example) fall on weekends and it always catches us off guard.  When Joe first wrote us from Chicago about photographing their Cinco de Mayo wedding at Wild Onion Ranch in Austin, we thought “Oh FUN! I’ll bet they’ll have tequila and stuff!”  Little did we know that their date would be one of the most requested dates we’ve ever had, and we were so thrilled that Joe and Denise had contacted us when they did, because there is nowhere else we would have rather been than at their party of a wedding.  Here’s some favorites from Joe and Nisey’s outdoor wedding in Austin, Texas.  Maybe have a ‘rita while you look you know… to add to the experience.;)

  • micah - Love love love those last three frames! Great stuff you two!

  • Caroline + Ben - Baller.

  • Sam - Whoa duder and dudette, this post is so freaking adorable! I LOVE the first shot with the flowers, it is so freaking lovely. It’s like you got a kitten, a puppy, a baby panda, and a baby kangaroo, combined them all into one amazing blog post and we got this. Fantastic work!
