Photographing a wedding in Washington D.C. was absolutely amazing, especially with the bride and groom I was able to work with! Corie and Greg could not have been a sweeter couple! We started the day at the Bennett House Bed and Breakfast. It was a charming location for the girls to get ready at. The entire day they were surrounded by family and friends that just kept pouring out love and support for them. It was an honor to be there and to be a part of it.
The fun didn’t stop on the wedding day either. The next day we decided to take time to get more images at some of the monuments. Doing a session the day after a wedding and even up to a year after a wedding is one of my favorite things to do. You may know these sessions as “Trash the Dress”, “Encore”, or “Day After” Sessions. The result is never actually trashing the dress, but just giving the bride and groom an opportunity to capture amazing images on a day other than their wedding day. This reduces the stress of time and also the stress about keeping the dress clean. Brides feel a little more comfortable walking around and even sitting for different poses.
One thing that really struck me about this couple was the adoration Greg has for Corie. He really does treat her like a princess. Even the way he looks at her is endearing. I’m so happy for them and for this new life they are starting together!
