Becky and Stephen

I finished off 2009 with the most refreshing and delightful wedding. Becky and Steve split their wedding into two completely diverse events with a honeymoon in Barbados in between! How unique. Their wedding began with an intimate ceremony at Temple Micah in DC and dinner reception at Citronelle in Georgetown, and will culminate with a big party at CBF in Annapolis this April. To make matters EVEN BETTER…their CBF reception will be my first wedding of 2010! How exciting…we’ve got the ceremony and group shots out of the way, and we can just get right to the fun part when we see each other again. Can’t wait!


My assistant Renee and I met Becky at her hotel, The Latham, about 30 minutes before she and Steve were scheduled to see each other for the first time. We walked along the C&O Canal doing portraits and making a bit of a scene with our beautiful bride! It was a cool, overcast fall morning on a day that had rain in the forecast, so lucky for us that not many people were out and about.

During our site visit a few days before the wedding, we were lucky enough to meet the shopkeeper who owned this picturesque courtyard along the canal. She was gracious enough to let us stage Becky and Steve’s “first sight” there on their wedding day. It was quite an emotional moment!

We arranged for Becky and Steve’s families to meet us on the canal for group shots shortly after having their moment together. It was really fun being able to capture their reactions, too. I also love how the group shots turned out.

My husband said this looked like the cover of a New Yorker Magazine when he saw this image. I agree….for some reason it brings New Yorkers Stieglitz and Woody Allen to mind for me!

I am not sure if I like the color or sepia better. Love them both!

We built in this time on their wedding day to walk through Georgetown and down to the waterfront. Being there at dusk with hardly anyone around combined with Steve and Becky’s unbridled happiness was just heaven!

I shot through the beveled glass doors to get this effect.

The simple, modern architecture at Temple Micah was really beautiful.

And so was their ketubah.

The kids passed on the tuna tartare appetizers at Citronelle…

…but filled up on Shirley Temples!
