Kristen & Ryan - Kent Manor Inn Wedding Photography

I love random connections and this is definitely one of them.

It was sometime last year when I was having coffee with Alison of Freckle Photography that her friend Kristen walked in. Alison introduced us, mentioned that Kristen was getting married and she should hire me to shoot the wedding.

And so Kristen did.

She and Ryan moved to Wisconsin shortly after, so I never met with them again until the day of the wedding. Fortunately for me, they were super fantastic in front of the camera and their wedding was full of pure awesomeness. It was a GORGEOUS day at the historic Kent Manor Inn, and with the help of Carly of Carly Fuller Photography, we captured some perfect moments. Even Ryan's 100 year-old grandmother made it to the wedding! She was so cute, I took a zillion photos. Haha.

Kristen and Ryan don't know it yet, but they are the faces on my new sample album. Can't wait for it to come in so I can post photos for the two people who read my blog!

Caitlin & Ross - DC Engagement Photography Yards Park

Everything about Caitlin and Ross is pretty awesome, including the small world story of how they met. At a convention in Chicago, they discovered they worked for the same company, lived in the same city, and were from the same state. Reminds of You've Got Mail or something. Without all the drama. Haha.

Anyway, Caitlin and Ross invited me to their neighborhood in southeast DC where we spent some time around Yards Park and then toasted champagne on the rooftop of their building at sunset. Yep, it was just as perfect as it sounds.

I loved getting to know these guys - they are warm, open, and fun. I am thrilled to be shooting their wedding next year... New Jersey here I come!
