Jonathan + Chelsea | Washington, DC Wedding

In 2012 I was asked to photograph a wedding in the Redwood Forest. Ever since then, I have loved every opportunity I've been given to travel for a wedding. I've been able to shoot in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, California, Tennessee, Kentucky and NOW Washington, DC.

When Jonathan and Chelsea first spoke to me about their wedding, I was over the moon excited. Chelsea is an art teacher in DC, and with the help of her family, did all of the decorations for the wedding. And the flowers? They are from her family's garden. Yes! 

On top of the personalized DIY decor, there were just so many sweet elements from this wedding. From when Jonathan saw Chelsea for the first time to Chelsea's father giving a toast at the reception - it is so hard to pick a favorite! 

To Jonathan and Chelsea, thank you so much for allowing me to capture the start of your future together! It was truly an honor!
