Eddie and I were thrilled about taking Lauren and Lance’s wedding photos. We did their engagement pictures around Union Market in D.C. and it was such an adventure. Part of our excitement for becoming DC wedding photographers was discovering brand new places to shoot. In New York, we always found cool sites to take photos and we were happy to do the same in D.C. They were so fun and open for anything; they forced us to push our boundaries. Including going into a sketchy corridor to get a “risqué” shot.
After that shoot, we knew that it would be one of our favorite weddings. Their personalities shine through in every one of their pictures.
Lauren and Lance got married at the Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in northern Virginia. We love the fact that we have access to so many different areas in the DMV area.. That place is beautiful and it just added to the magic of their small, intimate wedding.
They were married on a beautiful gazebo that overlooks a pond, as their best friend’s looked on lovingly. I have to admit, I did get a bit teary eyed as Lauren glanced into Lance’s eyes and repeated her vows. Their love was evident and it was felt throughout the entire ceremony. It was hard not to reflect back on our own very own small, intimate wedding day. Alas, this was their experience and it was wonderful documenting their day.
They welcomed us in and made us feel like we were always friends. This is one of those weddings that we will always remember with a smile.
