2016 year in review


at the end of every year, i get a little bit nostalgic and overwhelmingly grateful for the experiences i’ve had with this little business of ours. we are so blown away by the kindness and love of our clients and so grateful for the chances we have had to photograph and film so many special moments and happy days.

we feel lucky enough to have shot in hawaii, utah, pennsylvania, idaho, new york, minnesota, mexico, virginia, maryland, georgia, and of course, our beautiful washington, d.c. we photographed and filmed persian, nigerian, indian, american, christian, greek, persian, brazilian-puerto rican-trinidadian, fusion, and jewish weddings.

we shot in vineyards and ballrooms, beautiful churches and temples, beaches and bayside docks, historic manors, urban rooftops, and city streets. we got to meet some of the most amazing creatives– florists, planners, calligraphers, dress designers, stylists, models, jewelry designers, photographers + videographers– you name it! in this sense, it was such  a fun year of shared inspiration, collaboration, and relationship building; we can’t wait to continue working with our new vendor friends (and make new ones!) in 2017.

we really, truly love what we do. we love our sweet clients. we love this community. we love working together as husband-and-wife (and busting a few dance moves as we work!), and we love getting to celebrate joy and happiness each time we go to the office. we love creating art and honoring memories every single day.

thank you for supporting us and joining us on our journey! we love all of these 2016 peeps (stay in touch!!!) and are so excited for 2017; our year is shaping up to look so good so far! we’re costa rica, spain, iceland, france, mexico, + aruba bound and have a bunch of local virginia, maryland, and washington, d.c. weddings to shoot too!

without further ado, here are some of our favorite photographs from this past year (and don’t forget to check out our favorite wedding films here!)

year 2017, we’re coming for ya! we still have some wedding dates available (and special travel deals in for weddings, elopements, and portraits in the aforementioned locations!), so holler at us, and let’s make some magic together!

wishing you all a beautiful start to the new year.
