One of the coolest things about my relatively new photography business is seeing clients become friends and friends become clients. The latter might be slightly more exciting because I don't ask friends to become clients. I don't want anyone to feel compelled to hire me to in order to maintain a friendship or because they feel bad for me—I'd prefer to be hired based on skill and confidence in having an enjoyable wedding or portraiture experience. I know that I'd probably have more professional success if I was pushy about closing the deal and really solicited everyone I know, including friends and family, but that's just not me. Plus, it's really exciting when friends ask me to shoot their weddings.
Gary was one of the first friends I made after moving out to DC from Southern California. He's super smart, quick-witted and has abs of steel. Sterling is the perfect match for him intellectually, but is clearly a lot prettier than he is. Don't tell Gary I said that. (For some reason, I get really truthful when I'm talking to the internet) We took some engagement photos in preparation for their upcoming wedding in January. These photos were taken in what felt like the dead of winter, absolute frigid digit-numbing conditions, but Sterling and Gary light up every frame.
Also, I will answer the question on everyone's mind: Yes, all of my friends are extraordinarily good looking.

  1. Beautiful! I love the urban feel and that bright red brick wall. Keep up the good work on the narratives, too!
