Longtime readers of this space will remember the fun engagement portraits and incredibly celebratory wedding of Liz & Jon, and wouldn’t you know it, it’s been a year since their wedding already! How time flies. We’ve kept in touch with them (we’re actually working on their album right now) and recently asked them what some of their favorite images from their wedding day might be and why. Here’s what they had to say:
This moment is of my mom taking a look at the dress right before I slipped into it. The dress was hers and this was a beautiful, quite moment I’m so happy I can witness, thanks to your spying. (Even though I bug her for wearing a scrunchie.) [Editor’s note: Be sure to read Liz’s story about this dress in Washingtonian magazine.]
This one is Jon “tracking” me, as I walked down the long staircase and then down the aisle. Such anticipation.
This is me introducing Liz as my wife. During the rehearsal the day before, Father George, our priest had told me that one thing that he never thought was right was that the first person to introduce a wedding couple for the first time was “some DJ or band singer” and that I should go ahead and do it on my own at the end of the ceremony. The picture is great because obviously it caught Liz off guard. [Editor’s note: Such a fantastic idea! We can’t believe no one had ever done it before you guys.]
This is great because our parents decided on the spur of the moment after the ceremony to walk down the aisle arm-in-arm together. The picture perfectly captures that, and given that we celebrated our anniversary with all four of them shows how close we all truly are. We’re so lucky.
Both of these moments were “ours,” in that we were alone together. Before the ceremony (following our “first look”), we walked from the Sofitel to the museum and it was so much fun–after being surrounded by so many people getting ready all day–to just be with one another and laugh and kiss and laugh… The second shot is us alone again following the ceremony. I remember just thinking, “Whoa! We just got hitched! Holy…”
Thanks again for such memories, Anne and Bill. We enjoyed reliving the evening tonight, combing through so many beautiful moments. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: You are both exceptionally talented. Thank you, thank you.
Thank you, l&j! 🙂 It’s always such fun seeing some of our clients favorites images from their wedding day. Some of yours, were most definitely some of our favorites, as well.
Happy Anniversary you two!!
