Julia + Nick | Anderson House | DC Wedding

Nick and Julia had one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve been to at the Anderson House in Dupont Circle. Every room was elaborate with ornate details, gilded metal, antique furnishings, and hanging tapestries. It was a gorgeous venue and all of the details came together perfectly. In addition to the beauty of the venue, the day itself couldn’t have gone smoother thanks to Nick, Julia, and their families. Everyone was so relaxed, calm, and excited. It was a very…

I met Ryan and Heather on the day that I took pictures of them. What a great family! Their kids all had fun personalities and are by far some of the cutest kids I've met! Not only are they fun and energetic but they never complained despite the very chilly weather, and they come from the most generous and kind family.

Then I had to select a date based on the availability of that venue. There were still about 1,000 things that I had to check off a list before my actual…

What About Bob? Baby Steps…

Over labor day my husband and I had the opportunity to go to Ocean City, NJ with some friends of ours. On our last night we were all ready to cozy up and watch a movie. After about 45min – an hour of deliberation on what movie we should watch we decided to take a trip back in time. We settled on a DVD from the 90s (80’s)?, “What About Bob”. Bob was essentially afraid anything and everything you can…
