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!

The LDS Philadelphia Temple shines bright in the City of Brotherly Love! I had the pleasure of photographing Simmandi and Kyle’s temple sealing on a VERY hot July day! The temps reached the mid 90s and their friends and family stuck it out for the happy couple!
When Abby’s mother first reached out to me about photographing her daughter’s wedding we immediately had so many connections. I have known Abby’s grandparents for years and two of my past brides (Shelby and Kim) referred them to me. I loved seeing all the friendly faces at the Washington DC Temple and at the Chesapeake Noah’s Event Venue!
I spent a BEAUTIFUL spring day at the Washington DC Temple with Emily, Cristian and all of their closest family and friends. The temple was very busy on this day with weddings. We quickly did all of their family portraits near the front temple doors to allow extra time for Emily and Crisitian’s couple’s portraits. They will traveled one hour to Frederick, MD for their same day wedding reception. They had an intimate and small DIY reception at the The Tea Room at Gambrill State Park.
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.
Leslie and Payton were sealed for eternity on a chilly December day at the Washington DC Temple. When I first met them at their Richmond engagement session, I instantly fell in love with them. They are such a sweet couple and have so much love for one another. Their family welcomed me with open arms and I immediately felt so at home with them.
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.
I’m am striking gold with all of my couples this year! I met up with Leslie and Payton at the Historic Tredegar Iron Works in downtown Richmond this past August. Every thing about this session was perfection! The outfits, the location, the chemistry……. I’ll let their pictures do the talking 🙂 Their […]
