maybe it’s because the temperatures here in d.c. are creeping down towards freezing, or maybe it is because this was one of my top favorite days as a d.c. wedding photographer, ever. but i’ve found myself thinking back to these great marsh estate wedding photos over and over again as of late! and when you’re done perusing through them here, check them out on one of our favorite wedding blogs, grey likes weddings, here.
back in the spring of 2018, i hosted a workshop for photographers alongside my sweet and talented friend hannah bjorndal. as part of our education, we orchestrated three styled editorials, planned by the lovely claire duran events. our first shoot of the day was a romantic, ethereal spring affair. filled with pastel colors, soft tones, and exquisite details, everything came together so perfectly. there was a definite mr.-darcy-and-elizabeth-bennett type energy about it, and i mean, can you really ever go wrong with that?!
i can’t say enough about the incredible team of vendors who pulled together to make this happen! from the insanely beautiful styling and design from claire, to the stunning florals by my amazing friend sofia of casa delirio, to the watercolor cake from fluffy thoughts… sheer perfection. and don’t even get me started on the bespoke, foiled invitation suite from wild hearts calligraphy! our real-life couple models, maura and tim, are the kindest (AND gorgeous) couple, as well! and the hair and makeup from valerie hammer and shear society studio couldn’t have been more classic. the lavender-inspired welcome basket from the welcoming district really tied it all together, as well. great marsh estate weddings offers an incredible backdrop as well– an incredible property, and the best bridal suite we’ve ever seen!
it was an honor to get to work alongside some of d.c.’s finest while teaching some really remarkable photographers! although we didn’t host any formal, in-person workshops in 2019, educating other creatives still has such a special place in our hearts. and we’ve got big plans for 2020 on the education front, so hang tight!
in the meantime, enjoy this beautiful shoot, and think of warmer weather…
