Maddy and Seth at Gasparilla Inn's Beach Club

A little bit preppy, a little bit hippy.  Two Washingtonians gather their friends and family on a quaint island for beach time and to celebrate their love, under rose petals and the Florida stars.

thank you Alison

I save all my thank you notes from clients, but Alison’s I framed.

As you know, I was extremely concerned about how I would look due to the effects of Chemo, that I wouldn’t be able to look as I had always hoped I would on my wedding day. Kate, I have never felt more beautiful than when I look at your photos. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
— Alison, bride

As a photographer, I was proud. As a woman, I framed it as a reminder of what true beauty is, for being happy with what you have, comfortable with who you are here and now. And for how gracious, resilient and joyful she was after beating breast cancer just a few months before. Alison inspires me as so many of my clients do.

Life doesn't always turn out as you expect, but when it hands you lemons, make an 8-tiered lemon elderflower cream frosting wedding cake and have the best day of your life.

Dear Grandma,
Discovering a new little island, Boca Grande, and loving it's quaint streets and easy going vibe.  You can park anywhere and hit the beach!  Loved my clients Maddy and Seth, getting married at the historic Gasparilla Inn, and especially her bridesmaids who treated me like a friend all day and eve.

Jaci and Mark originally conceptualized a large, summer wedding in their backyard. But, when it came to it, they decided to pare the guest list down to 20 or so and marry in an intimate ceremony, followed by the most fantastic meal...and moved it up to January, with a little over a month of planning.  The same week of their wedding, Metier was named the best restaurant in Washington, DC by Washingtonian Magazine and they had booked it all for their Saturday wedding.  How serendipitous, how hip.
