Remember Matt + Ashley’s? They were that super adorable couple we photographed in Old Town Alexandria, VA for their engagement photos. Well these two love birds said their I DO’s last Saturday on a beautiful day in DC.
Matt + Ashley chose to do a First Look at the Jefferson Memorial that overlooks the Tidal Basin in DC. A First Look happens prior to the ceremony and is without a doubt my favorite part of a wedding day! This is a special time for the bride and groom to see each other all dressed up, share some words and shed some tears while I am tucked away photographing all of their real and raw emotion. This is a special time for just the two to be with each other prior to wedding guests arriving and partying the night away. First Look portraits never cease to be my favorite among the bride and groom.
Once we were done photographing the First Look and the entire bridal party, we headed to the Potomac River to board the Odyssey, a cruise ship where Matt + Ashley choose to host their ceremony and reception. Friends and family danced the night away as the ship sailed down the river on a beautiful September evening.
Matt + Ashley, you two could not have been more fun to work with and photograph! I wish you decades of love & happiness! #itsgoingdowney
