Summer Update: Teasers & Travels

Inhale ... 




exhale.

As summer starts to retreat I am finally able to catch my breath. It's been an extraordinary summer, engrossed in adventure, love, family, and work. I'm grateful for a season of busy, but ever so glad for things to finally slow down. 

My husband is mostly healed from a car accident at the beginning of the summer {praise God and thank you for all the love and patience while we have dealt with this!}. I've gained new friends and built stronger bonds with existing ones. We traveled & then traveled again. I've been challenged by a food allergy I never knew I had, but have learned to manage and live with.  I've juggled many hats this summer and by the grace of God have been able to accomplish the many jobs He's set before me. And best of all I've grown. I can't pinpoint specifics, but this summer has changed me and I'm not the same lady I was at the start of it.

Hope your summer was a full, as wonderfully-challenging, life giving & warm as ours. 
I'll leave you now with a sweet set of teasers, with full blog posts to follow.
{My husband took this dreamy sparkler filled photo, as I was on the other side of my bride & groom taking a completely average photo. My Mr. is so talented!}
 The rest are photos from this summer's East Coast travels.

Happy weekend folks!

Glen Echo, DC Wedding: Martin & Lindsay

Patterns, colors, sweets, and so many beautiful details … this wedding was top notch fun.

From start to finish I was like a kid in a candy shop while I worked and witnessed this beautiful wedding. And besides the uniqueness of their big day, Martin and Lindsay have one beautiful love. Their friends and family spoke the moon of each of them and their relationship during both the ceremony and reception. Witnessing the joy that fills their eyes in the arms of the other … there's no denying their immense love for one another. 

Martin and Lindsay you spoiled me rotten in asking me to capture your crazy beautiful wedding day. Thank you again for giving me the kind of wedding to capture that makes me adore my job.
