Happy Tuesday Romancers. Somehow I survived the BIGGEST wedding of my life this past weekend and am still alive to tell the tale. Two weeks ago my bride texted me to tell me their venue was being shut down immediately due to mold … and so began the most insane two weeks of my couples’ lives. Finding a new venue, notifying guests, signing new contracts, hiring new vendors … and the list went on. Somehow it went off with only a few hitches and I cannot wait to see the images Documentary Associates captured, because it was downright stunning.
Yesterday I spent the morning trying to put the finishing touches on the brand new #CapRoShop – and with help from Alesha, Kara & Lauren Louise Photography, we are targeting a November 1st launch!!! We’ll be doing a week of giveaways to celebrate and our CapRoNewsblast subscribers will be the first to know. But anyway, for today I have a darling engagement session taken at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. SO much laughter and happiness on these two (which I could totally use after that insane debate Sunday night). Here’s hoping the rest of this (short) week goes well for you all!
From the photographer:
It is strange how some people come into your life. I met Pam and Tom in a very nontraditional way. Most of my brides find me through word of mouth, mutual acquaintances or Instagram. When a parent of a student I teach mentioned that her friend was getting married, I felt it was bizarre fate that my two businesses would collide. Going into our engagement session, I didn’t know what to expect! I had most of my conversations with Pam prior to setting up the session. She seemed extremely laid back concerning wedding photos: no bridesmaids, no getting ready pictures, a small window for bride and groom portraits.
I was surprised that she would want the complimentary engagement session at all but, oh man, am I glad she did! Our sunset session was amazing. Truth be told, I didn’t even suggest the location! Pam’s father works closely with the Kennedy Center and Tom thought it would be the perfect place for photos. He was right! The view was spectacular and there were very few people on the roof because sunset was right smack in the middle of a show. How lucky were we!? Not only was the location perfect but this couple was heaps of fun! They were complete champs with posing but also got creative with some moves of their own. When I told them to “practice their first dance” this was the move the duo busted out! I can’t wait to capture their actual first dance this October.
