I've had the great pleasure to work with the Ulsh family on many occasions. I did some work for Brian a couple of years ago when he owned The Lawn Barber, taking before-and-after photos for his lawn care business. I was also fortunate to shoot Ben (another Ulsh brother) and Heather's wedding in 2012, and now, little sister Laura's special day. We started at Knollwood Community Church where Laura and Younes didn't let the cold weather keep them from capturing their "first look" on the grounds of the church. Laura and Younes exchanged vows in front of their favorite people and ended the evening in Woodbridge, where these families threw a great party! Let's just say the party could've continued! Thanks for letting me be a part of such a wonderful day!
Craig and Beth put "its a small world" to a new test. You see, Craig and I went to high school together (photo to follow) and Beth and I have family ties. Her uncle Rob is married to my sister, Carol. We are also Godparents to their daughter Robyn. So, it is a small world. How these two found each other is truly an amazing story. I can vouch, Beth told us the whole story after some drinks. :)
They sealed the deal at Reheboth Beach, DE on the beach. Torrential downpours subsided to give way to a beautiful beach wedding. Allison and I feel so lucky to have been a part of their day. Here are some of my favorites of the day.
I don't shoot many weddings but when I do I bring the big boys. I typically rent a whole slew of equipment, including wide angle lenses, macro lens, extra camera body, a couple of extra speedlights, and any fun gadgets I feel like trying. This wedding was no different, however, I will say for my next wedding I am going with the minimalist approach.
On to the lovely couple...Alison and Chris are awesome! Chris is a friend of my wife's, from their home town of Hampton, VA. They found me through word of mouth and facebook and we got in touch. Alison, the bride-to-be and I meet about a year prior at a local Starbucks and discussed details, but after that meeting we spoke only occasionally via email or phone. That's why when I saw her get out the car the night of their rehearsal, the breath left my body. She was stunning! Needless to say, they are a wonderful couple. Their wedding day went off without a hitch, although we did dodge a few passing clouds. Here are some of my favorites from their day.
