Best of 2021

Excited to present this video of the Best of 2021. It was a rebuilding year, as is often said in the sports world. And the images tell the story of weddings i photographed in a country trying to regain its composure.

A hearty thank you to all of the magnificent people I worked with this year, and to those brave photographers who worked with me: Kate Duffy, Jessica Latos Photography, Elyse Franco.

Back at it to do an engagement session at the Lincoln Memorial, and I meet this wonderful foursome of motorcycle officers from Memphis, TN in town for a week of recognition. They were so gracious and in awe of the monuments. Loved meeting these guys. #goodcops #memphissheroes #motorcyclecops #lincolnmemorial #washingtondcweddingphotographer

Covid made us all scheduling acrobats. Some tumbled and cancelled. Some twirled and rescheduled. Like M and K. They rescheduled and resized and repurposed until the perfect backyard micro-wedding was born this past Saturday. And as the rain raced toward their suburban DC home, the sun greeted them for just a peek. And this was the moment.
