Susie & Becky » Washington DC, MD & VA Wedding Photographer

Masthead header

Daniel and Hannah met online and have spent most of their relationship apart. Far apart, actually! Except for an occasional visit, Hannah has been living and working in Turkey as teacher at an international school until just a month ago. Nevertheless, they had the most natural and relaxed way around one another!!! Hannah has a million dollar smile that I could have photographed all day and Daniel knew just how to bring it out. I’ve hardly ever edited so many laughing pictures!:-)

We met early to avoid the rain that was predicted, and of course, as happens EVERY time, there weren’t even any clouds in the sky when we finished. Because of the early start, we had to be a little careful about the harsh light and wrapped up before golden hour. Didn’t matter! When I met Daniel and Hannah at the Bean Hollow in Ellicott City, they were sharing a snack side by side in the same booth and the most gorgeous window light was on them. The shoot only got better from there.

Can’t wait until August 1st, Hannah and Daniel!!

Woohoo!!! So beautiful!

I know that I overuse capital letters and that they really mean that you’re YELLING and not just emphasizing a word. So I’ve been working on that (A little. Not very successfully.)

But when Susie offered to always cover a least-favorite job of mine, I really was yelling this response that I emailed back right away:


NO! YOU’RE KIDDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I could not even do that to you.



And when she responded that, indeed, she really was not kidding, I actually audibly laughed with relief. Like this: LOL!!!

She didn’t take it for “free”, she just agreed that I can always do one of my favorite jobs (blogging the weddings) in exchange (how can she not love that job?).

For Susie, it was about which job takes less time. For me, it was about which job was more tedious.

Teamwork. It’s the best:-)

Becky, you are so cute…how many groomsman hit on you during the photo shoots!!!! Good that John is so strong and doesn’t get jealous! :)

Last week I had the pleasure of taking some maternity photos of my friend, Lindsey. She’s due in just a few weeks, and it’s so neat that we’re having babies only a few months apart!   Unlike me, however, she and her husband have the patience to wait for the entire nine months to find out if it’s a boy or a girl. :)  I’m so happy for them and can’t wait to meet their baby soon!

We wanted to do some photos, but because of the hot weather we’ve been having, plus the fact that she’s 36 weeks, we thought it would be best if we rented a studio for the shoot.  It turned out to be a very good thing and we had a great time.

Congratulations again, Lindsey, and I hope these last few weeks go quickly for you!:)
