Ted + Danielle || Wedding || The Potomac View Terrace

Documentary Wedding Photographer

Ted and Danielle is an extraordinary couple and you will see it in their wedding pictures which I’ve been privileged to take. This beautiful and madly in love couple met years ago in college where they firstly started as friends which led things to them becoming a strong bonded couple. Their whole traditional Jewish wedding day was full of joy, real and bright emotions, awesome dances and plenty of perfect family members and friends who joined and celebrated their beautiful day with all their hearts.

I’m always available if you want to get your own photo journalistic wedding. It can be taken in any place of the world. All you have to do is contact me and I’ll be glad to participate!

Ben + Brittany || Wedding || Shenandoah Woods

This couple and their story are exciting and extraordinary. Ben and Brittany both quit their jobs as decided to go for an Appalachian Trail. They didn’t know each other at that moment. But luckily they met on the trail and this trip changed everything for both of them. They even had to go for 40 miles one day to get their first drinks and dinner together:)
The couple celebrated their wedding in Shenandoah Woods where all their closest friends and family joined them on this joyful occasion. They chose this place as it’s possible to see the mountains from there:) It was truly fun to make these documentary pictures of their perfect wedding day.
