I feel so incredibly lucky to have been the photographer at Jamie and Ryan's wedding. Everything was gorgeous. Perfect. I was in awe the entire day. After the gorgeous ceremony - photos of which will be posted in Part II - they arranged for a limo to drive us around to the various monuments they had scoped out in Washington DC for photos.
OMG. I was in heaven. As you can see from some of the photos, we had an audience everywhere we went. It was like Jamie and Ryan were celebrities and I was their paparazzi. It was so much fun!
One thing you can't tell from most of the photos, is that it had rained all morning, it was wet, muddy and chilly and overcast. Overcast weather is perfect for photos - lots of shade and no squinting.
These photos are my favorites from our trip around the city after their wedding ceremony. There were so many I had to break their wedding preview post into 2 posts. So there are more to come...
