“Thank you so very much for your reply. I’ve literally been checking my email constantly with all of my fingers and toes crossed in hopes that you would be available for us. THANK YOU! I am so thrilled!!!… Your work is absolutely breathtaking and it indeed portrays my envisionment of romance and elegance. Please let me know what are the next steps from here. Can’t wait to work with you!” This was January 8th, 2017; the day when My sent me an inquiry. I responded on the same day and she booked right away! The rest is history.
I knew from the beginning that My was going to be a dream JOFFOTO bride. From her smile-worthy initial email inquiry, perfectly coordinated engagement session, up to the day of her wedding, she was a pleasure to work with! Though it took me a while to blog her wedding, because it was so hard for me to pick my favorite photos to showcase the beauty of it all, I think every second of the wait is definitely WORTH IT!
My and Rodney became my instant friends! I felt very comfortable with them! It’s as if I’ve known them for a very long time! And that was validated after our first meeting! We had a lunch date and talked about their engagement and wedding planning. My’s dream was to have her engagement photos during the cherry blossoms season in D.C. And you guessed it right! We made it happen! It was around peek season when we headed to the Tidal Basin and took their photos! My looked gorgeous and Rodney looked dapper himself! It was dreamy and beautiful. And.. it got published in one of my favorite online wedding blogs! I’m sharing all of this to you because I feel it is important to share their whole experience. Through their engagement session, they managed to get very comfortable in front of my camera and practiced posing for their wedding day.
On the day of their wedding, My’s bridal details were ultimate perfection! My knew exactly what she wanted. She wanted romance and elegance. From her personalized blush colored The Mrs. Box, lovely invite suites, and stunning Badgely Mischka wedding shoes! I can just go on and on.
In Raspberry Plain Manor’s secret garden, Rodney was waiting patiently to see his dream become a reality. He was waiting to see My in her breathtaking, very elegant wedding dress, with a long and delicate veil flowing from her back.
The long awaited moment finally came. My came down from the mansion to the secret garden to meet Rodney. It was pretty windy on their wedding day but that didn’t stop My from wearing her veil! And she looked stunning! Slowly walking down the steps towards Rodney, My filled the air with warmth, happiness and love. As soon as she reached Rodney, he turned around and oh man that smile I witnessed on his face was priceless! It was one of those moments that will be remembered forever.
