Michelle's Bridal Shoot

Remember the bridal session I shot for a special client that I couldn't really show this summer? Read on...

In August Michelle & I got together to shoot her bridal portraits in Old Town Alexandria. I'm so happy to finally post some of our favorite images & her slideshow now that her wedding day is done and Jared & Michelle fly off to Key West for their honeymoon. Last night's wedding was incredible with some unexpected encounters with D.C. tourists, plus the live band that rocked the Monroe House inside the Arts Club of Washington, Liquid A, that played everything from Young MC to Metallica to Ring of Fire ... yep, they were awesome and the guests loved them. Definitely one of the best bands I've seen at a wedding.

More pics from Michelle & Jared's memorable D.C. wedding will come, but for now enjoy her bridals and some teaser wedding pics =)

Some teasers from the wedding ... a gorgeous dress with purple shoes ;)

And the tourists must've thought they recognized her from somewhere because a whole busload of them raided my photo shoot like vultures!
One of them even grabbed a bouquet!

There were 14 groomsmen. Here are a few of them cuttin' it up ... and no worries, the tourist being carried was not harmed, LOL.

Of course with 14 loud groomsmen, 6 bridesmaids, the bride & groom, and two dozen tourists following us, US Park Police stopped me immediately.
Permit presented, checked & approved... I could get the shot I've been wanting to get for a while. Thank you Michelle & Jared!
