Yuna & Michael - Richmond Wedding Photography

I've been putting off this post for a while because there's just SO MUCH AWESOMENESS to talk about with this wedding. I'm gonna try and keep it short.

From their six-tiered cake to the personalized menus, Yuna and Michael's wedding pretty rockin' in every way. Everything was monogrammed (including the dance floor) and the uplighting by Blue Steel Lighting brought the reception room at the Jefferson Hotel to a whole new level! One of my personal favorite touches was the "miracle berry" station. If you've never seen them before, miracle berries are these awesome fruit-tablets that you dissolve in your mouth and they actually change your palate. For real. Like, highly acidic things suddenly become sweet. I sucked on one of these tablets and then I was eating lemons like they were candy. It was the weirdest thing.

Oh yeah, and this wedding was published in the Richmond Times-Dispatch. No big deal. You can read the article here.

Serena - Annapolis Portrait Photography

Sometimes it's fun to just take photos of people you know, for no real reason at all.

Serena is an awesome photographer in the Baltimore area (check out her company: Love by Serena) and we've been hanging out ever since we hit it off at a networking event last year. Aside from being totally fun and a great partner in Rock Band, she's also my new fashion consultant. Haha. (I'm totally not kidding about this part.)

And clearly, she's beautiful! She was a much better model for me than I was for her. :)

Libby and Jason - Belvedere Wedding Photography

What a fun wedding! It just what I needed to get me excited about all of my 2012 weddings. I had only one wedding in January (which I still plan on blogging about), then nothing for the whole month of February, so by the time Libby and Jason's wedding rolled around at the beginning of March I was pretty ready to do some serious shooting!

This couple is the real deal. Their love was written all over their faces - I don't think Jason could have smiled any bigger if he tried!
