Hands down, the most beautiful detailing of a dress I’ve ever seen. ✨
Your hustle is only as valuable as your well being // Wedding vendors- todays post is for you. I know that wedding season means non stop work. I know that it’s hard. It means less sleep, less time with the people we love and less energy for the things we enjoy doing, but I am here to remind you that you are only as good and valuable to your clients as you are healthy, in mind and body. I know that wedding season doesn’t allow for long, restful vacations (that’s what our winter months are for) but it doesn’t mean we cant find time for rest, even if only for a few moments. Every night before bed I’ve been taking 15 minutes to make three lists: what I’m grateful for, one thing I did for myself today, and my goals and to do’s for the following day. These lists not only help me sleep better at night (writing things down helps get stress out of your mind and onto the page) but they hold me accountable for my own self care. If I can’t list one thing I did for myself that day among the chaos of wedding season, then I’m reminded to do better tomorrow: go for a run, take a bath, meditate, sit at a coffee shop and write sappy posts to inspire and encourage my fellows photographers (ha.) Reminding myself of what I have keeps my priorities in check. These lists have given me a perspective to fall back on when I feel overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done to give my clients the best possible experience, smack in the middle of what we call our tax season. So please remember to take care of yourself - your clients (and families) will thank you for it. 📷
The most perfect fall palette for the first day that actually FEELS like fall! 🍁 🍂 🍃
One of our favorite snaps from Chris and Kay’s Old Town wedding last weekend! 🍁
We don’t usually photograph non-wedding events, but we couldn’t resist this English garden styled first birthday and baptism at The St Regis 🖤 Impeccable style and wonderful taste! Check out our stories to see more!
Today in our stories we’re talking about what couples splurged on for their wedding day. Any guesses?
We ask our inquiring couples which wedding they love the most in our portfolio so that we can get a sense of their style and Chris + Melissa’s is always tippy top on their lists. Not only are they incredibly kind but they have impeccable taste and hired amazing vendors! (Lookin’ at you @portandpalmco 👋🏼)
Up bright + early for my flight back to DC to shower my girl @elizabeth_carberry with all the 👶 love!
