Jennifer and Tom
October 4, 2008
The Fairmont Hotel
Washington, DC

After being away from DC for over a year, I was super excited to get back to my old home town. It was a homecoming for me as well as Jenn and Tom. Jenn and Tom recently relocated from the DC area to Tom's home state of Massachusetts. I met Jenn when she was working at one of the photo labs I used back in the film days. It wasn't long before she started assisting me on jobs. Always patient and on her toes, she was an asset to my business. Eventually Jenn took over for me when I left my position with another photographer. Fast forward to her engagement to her long time love, Tom, and a plea to fly down to DC to photograph their wedding.

Leaving the baby for a weekend was harder than I thought it would be, but I was looking forward to luxuriating at the fabulous Fairmont Hotel in DC's West End. Lucky for me they had recently renovated their guest rooms so it was even nicer than I remembered. It really doesn't get much better than October in DC. It's neither too warm or too cool, the sky is bright and clear, and the flowers are still blooming.

Photographing a friend's wedding is always a mixed bag of nerves, excitement, and unbelievable pressure. Lucky for me, Jenn and Tom are a super laid back couple. I loved every minute of this day and feel grateful that Jenn trusted me to photograph it. Thanks for having me! Congratulations to Jenn and Tom. I wish them all the best in the years to come.

The online gallery will be available on Pictage very soon.

The courtyard at the Fairmont is a peaceful oasis in the middle of the city.

Love that there was an endless supply of Starbucks as well as champagne.

The bridesmaids got caught up on all the latest celebrity gossip as
they waited for the bride to finish getting her hair and make up.

Suck it in, Jenn!

Jenn's dad sees her for the first time.


I've known Jenn for a while now and never noticed her very cool eye color.

The handsome groom.

I love this shot of Jenn in the elevator on the way downstairs.
