Even though the skIes were cloudy and the landscape was bare, Hailee and Justin’s Washington DC Temple winter wedding showcased bold pops of color! I loved the mix of teal and orange and gold that really brought the photos to life! I feel like it really complimented the white marble and gold spires of the temple!

Julianna and Kurt’s Virginia Beach engagement session….where do I even start? Aren’t they such a stunning couple? They have been dating since she was 16 years old! How cute is that? When I got their inquiry, she told me that I had photographed her brother’s wedding and I got so excited! See her brother’s past […]
August weddings at the Washington DC Temple are usually scorching hot! For that reason, I met up with Tona and Doug for a hour before they needed to be at the temple for their sealing. That way it was cooler and the light was better. We were blessed with mid 70’s and a beautiful overcast sky. When there are clouds at the temple, the spires really “pop” and it creates the dreamiest light!
Kim and Stuart’s Washington D.C. LDS Temple post was so full of gorgeousness that I knew their reception would need its own space on my blog. Temple Wedding Fact: There are 155+ operating temples for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints throughout the world. Some regions have many within a short distance, while other areas require members to travel long distances to attend. The state of Virginia does not have a temple, so when members of the church are looking to get married (or sealed as they call it) they travel to The Washington D.C Temple in Kensington, MD. It is 3.5-4 hour drive from Virginia Beach depending on traffic. Once it even took me 8 hours to get home because I-95 was a parking lot–yikes!
I was so excited for this wedding! Not only was it at my favorite place, The Washington D.C. Temple, but I’m so crazy about this fun couple! I knew when I met Kim and Stuart that they were my kind of people! They were so fun at their engagement session and I knew their wedding would be just as awesome as they are! They were sealed as husband and wife on a Wednesday. We had the entire temple grounds to ourselves.
Megan and Ira were sealed at the Washington DC LDS Temple this past Fall. The day was sunny and surprisingly mild! The temple grounds were filled with the autumn colored leaves that I love so much! There was so much excitement in the air as they celebrated with their family and friends.
