This Washington DC wedding was definitely a career highlight for me! Meet Hunter and Kay. Two lovebirds that live in Charlotte that took a chance on me and hired me to photograph their Washington DC wedding! Their wedding date was actually my BIRTHDAY! I had no expectation of anyone taking a moment to acknowledge it, but when my Uber dropped me off at the girl’s getting ready location, I walked into a Happy Birthday song from all of the bridesmaids and a card that everyone had signed! It made me feel SO loved and appreciated! What a good start to my day! Oh and the breakfast at the house I got to snack on didn’t hurt either!
Airbnb for the win!! This house was BEAUTIFUL!
After the girls were ready, we called an Uber and headed to our first stop, the Jefferson Memorial! If you haven’t seen the session I did there the day before the wedding, you can check it out here! This is the spot where Hunter and Kay will read letters to each other, and see each other for the first time!!
Hunter caught me and came in with the prom pose, haha!
Bring in the wedding party!
Hey random stranger, you get your picture too!
Now it’s off to the Capitol building! Wedding photos at the US Capitol have been something I’ve always wanted to have, and we DID it! Fun fact, we got in the wrong Uber. Woops!
Cherry Blossom season in DC was interrupted by a snow earlier in the week, but we found a few blooms here and there! It’s still awesome to have a Washington DC wedding, even without them 🙂
Now it’s off to get married! On the Uber ride to the venue, Hunter mentioned that he never had the opportunity to introduce Kay to anyone new as his fiance. He introduced her to the Uber driver as his fiance the hour before he married her!, it was his last chance I swear these guys are so sweet.
Is the Loft at 600 F GORGEOUS or what? Hunter and Kay actually MADE all of these candles out of wine bottles! They were a gift to each guest!
It’s time to get married!
After some family photos outside, the party began.
Thank you guys for such a magical day and for bringing me up from good ol South Carolina to document it, it was SUCH an honor and will forever be a career highlight for me!
