I had the luck of meeting this wonderful couple from a model call I held. At the time I was just looking for some couples to work with to test out some new techniques from a recent training I had attended, I was actually unaware they were engaged and looking for a wedding photographer! The day after our shoot I received a text message from April oozing about how much fun I was and how amazing my pictures were. She wanted to meet to discuss the possibility of me shooting their big day!
We worked out the logistics and got them on the books for their Halloween wedding at the Thornewood Castle! It was such a stunning venue, every turn had another surprise and gorgeous area. I found myself obsessing over the hall of mirrors, it was so unique and amazing for pictures! Although it was a typical Washington fall day, dreary and wet, if we had wanted to we could have taken all of the pictures indoors. But that didn't stop us from making a run for it outside when there was a break in the rain!
It was a gorgeous wedding, and one of the most emotional ones I have ever had the honor of shooting. No one was spared from the tears during the heartfelt ceremony. This couple has a special sort of love, I can't wait to see what life brings them next! So glad I was able to capture their special day and even added a little bit of magic to match their Harry Potter inspired theme!
