Jason & Emily, April 27, 2012

This past weekend I had the great privilege of photographing Jason and Emily as they exited the Washington, DC LDS Temple. It was a bit unusual, seeing as how I'd never had an opportunity to meet the couple prior to documenting their special day! Both students out West and with families from Pennsylvania and Connecticut, there just wasn't ever a time for us to get together. However, I immediately felt welcomed into their big day by their family, friends, and the warm personality of this couple. I loved getting to know them better and their story.

For example, did you know you can get a custom made wedding gown on Etsy? Also, photographing a photography student (aka someone who knows their stuff) is a bit nerve wracking! In the end, that only worked to my advantage as Emily knew exactly how to work in front of the camera, given what I can imagine is extensive work behind it! I love it when a couple seems to forget I am there and I catch a real moment.

Here are just a few of my favorite shots from their afternoon at the Temple! Right now they're probably soaking up the sun and solitude in Mexico =) Wish them all the best, and congrats again you guys!!
