This past weekend, I headed over to Theodore Roosevelt Island for a photo shoot. It was such a lovely evening that after we finished, I decided to stick around for sunset and wander around by myself to take some pictures. I love how beautiful, quiet and diverse the terrain of the island is, while being right across the Potomac from the hustle and bustle of the Georgetown waterfront. It's one of my safe havens.

I still remember the first time I met Jill. It was just before sophomore year in college started, and all the desk receptionists and resident assistants gathered for training, mixed in with some socializing, of course. One of the socializing staples was the group outing to the Jelly Belly Factory where you tour the factory learning how the jelly beans are made, see giant portraits of famous people made entirely of jelly beans and, of course, exit through the gift shop. Somewhere along the way I met Jill, and we decided to share a bag of sour Jelly Bellys, which I gladly purchased. Later that day, Jill found me in the dorm to make sure she paid me back. And I just knew that she was good people and we were going to be friends.
One bag of Jelly Bellys and about ten years later, I was thrilled to fly back to California to document her wedding day. I got to pass through our old stomping grounds of Napa Valley and St. Helena (most importantly, stopping by Giugni's for a BBQ beef sandwich, of course!). I got to see the beautiful Redwoods of Northern California. I got to see Jill and Eric's family and friends all chip in to pull together an impressive wedding, from designing the floral arrangements to building the altar to cooking all of the food and all of the handmade details between. Most importantly, I got to see Jill enjoy every moment of the wedding day and marrying the man she loves.
Wishing you all the best, Jill & Eric!
Shout out to all of Jill and Eric's friends and family who helped make sure everything came together. And special thanks to Milli Mike for all her help with pictures and for being my voice when I almost had none. (I hope I never lose my voice when shooting a wedding ever again!)
Some of you will remember Jacques and Paula from previous photo shoots. Or you may even have the good fortune of knowing them personally. Seriously, they are some of my favorite people ever. My first engagement photo shoot was with them. Since then, I've documented their wedding and growing family, and it's become tradition for me to be there to photograph their major life events. We've joked that I would have to fly to wherever they are to keep up this tradition.
Last year, Paula graduated from medical school and matched in Seattle. When I realized I would be in California to photograph Jill's wedding, I decided to see if I could incorporate a Seattle leg to my trip in order to visit them. It worked out beautifully and must have been fate, as I found out Paula was pregnant again! In addition to getting to spend time with them and their absolutely adorable son, Noah, I was more than happy to be able to photograph them again. They are such a beautiful family, and I'm so happy to see them settling in so well to their life in Seattle.
About a decade after attending college in the Napa Valley area in California, I returned for a trip north to photograph the wedding of my dear friend (and once roommate). While I work through editing those pictures, I thought I would share a few fun pictures from the trip.
