Every now and then, we get the privilege of photographing a wedding that truly inspires. When Annie and Stephen wrote us the most thoughtful note about their upcoming wedding in Washington D.C., we wholeheartedly accepted. Their Meridian House wedding in the historic Georgetown area of Washington D.C. was designed as beautifully classic yet modern, but truly bespoke. Despite currently residing in Japan, they flew all the way home to celebrate with their nearest and dearest in the U.S. Captial.
On an unseasonably warm (for us) day in May, we had the luxury of time to explore a few different neighborhoods in Washington and Georgetown. We used the opportunity to capture a sizeable variety of portraits for them – it really was a timeline designed with photography and light in mind, which was much appreciated as it doesn’t always happen on a wedding day. We explored the Kennedy Centre, Georgetown, little shadowy alleys and sun-lit avenues, and finally the Meridian House mansion which was incredible all on its own. Their wedding was beautifully planned by Caroline Dutton Events – each detail was so thoughtful and wonderfully romantic. We also had the chance to work on this Meridian House wedding with our friends at Tomasz Wagner films. Tomasz and his team created the most beautiful video for Annie and Stephen, and if you’re looking for a great videographer that complements our style of wedding photography, please check them out.
So what was our favourite part of this glorious day? As usual and cherished, it was spending time with two people in love – A couple who really value photography without needing to resort to making the medium front and centre in their day (we also really value couples who allow themselves to savour the day for what it is). It makes our job extra enjoyable when we’re in the company of calm, joyous couples like Annie and Stephen and in turn, we think we deliver better photos for it! We wish them so much happiness and adventure together!
