in honor of independence day today + this country we feel blessed to live in, we’re sharing a classic elopement shoot in the heart of the nation’s capital: washington, d.c.! we are so lucky to live in such an amazing place; we love the mix of cultures and history here, and as washington d.c. wedding photographers, we’re so lucky to be able to photograph some of the most beautiful weddings and show off that classic d.c. architecture so often!
when my sweet photographer friend came to visit from san francisco, we decided that we wanted to get our creative juices flowing and shoot together in the city! we teamed up with bhldn to put together a romantic elopement, highlighting those classic d.c. vibes, and we’re so thrilled with how all came together. we were able to work with some of the most talented creatives, which made everything even better! rebecca looked incredible in her bhldn gown (can you believe the pattern on that lace?!), and cedar & lime co. busted out such a cool overgrown, garden-style bouquet of fresh peonies and greens.
i’ll also forever love those sweet vow books, stunning pear-shaped solitaire from the sweet susie saltzman, and charming “just married” elopement announcement postcards from kara hill calligraphy. one of the highlights of the entire process was the honor of getting the shoot published on one of our favorite wedding blots, glamour & grace!
we had the best evening exploring union station (i don’t know if we’ll ever get over that architecture!) and finished the evening with a twilight vow exchange alongside the potomac at the jefferson memorial, with views of the washington monument and city lights glowing in the background. we’ll forever love jefferson memorial wedding photos, and this is no exception! rebecca + jason share such apparent affection for one another, which was so natural to show off in these photos and in their d.c. wedding video (make sure to watch in hd!)
thanks so much to all of the amazing vendors who contributed to this shoot! and a special thanks to glamour & grace for showing it off so beautifully. happy birthday, america! wishing you all a safe + enjoyable fourth from d.c.!
