Bruce + Britni

A Bull Run Winery Wedding | DC Wedding Photographer

filed in:

After over 8 years of shooting weddings, I can honestly say that there are few things that bring me more joy on a wedding day than brides and grooms with amazing relationships with their parents. I love seeing the tears, the hugs and the sweet interactions between the couples and their moms and dads. Bruce and Britni’s parents have gotten to know one another over the course of their relationship that started in college. Sometimes I take for granted that my parents and Michael’s parents know and love one another. It’s such a gift!!

Bruce and Britni had such a beautiful day. The storms stayed away and the classic car pulled up right beside the ceremony site. Britni’s sweet dad opened the door and helped her out. It was straight out of a timeless movie! As she came around the corner of the aisle Bruce saw her for the first time and his eyes were teary. I was shooting the processional but I could hear all of the sniffles of the bridesmaids behind me. The pastor said something that I loved. He said that the best way that you can show someone you love them is to give them your TIME. Throughout the entire day, Bruce and Britni’s friends were invested and engaged in their celebration! The tears, hugs and laughter are so evident in their images and it was such an honor to be the one capturing their day!

Enjoy this gorgeous wedding at the Winery at Bull Run!!! Ps. You’re going to love her peony-filled bouquet!!!

This shoot was supposed to happen about a month earlier on the exact day that leftover rains from a hurricane swept through Washington. I’m so thankful we rescheduled! Our reschedule date was absolute perfection! The temperature, the glow, the locations…. it was beautiful! Tyler and Abby’s outfit choices were wonderful and the leaves were full of color and still hanging on the trees.

Brian + Shannon | Engaged Virginia Arboretum Engagement Session

When Michael and I were in our early years of dating, I would go on trips with his family for Thanksgiving and summer trips to West Virginia and I spent time with his cousins! “Bri-Bri” was so little! He’s the youngest of all of the cousins and it’s crazy to think that he’s old enough to be getting MARRIED! He’s actually older than we were when we got married!! We have known Shannon for years and we were THRILLED when we heard that Brian had proposed because we always hoped that would happen!!!

This session is beautiful… if I do say so myself! It’s colorful, it’s vibrant, it’s full of joy and it’s also LONG! It’s a lengthy post because I just had so many favorites and I absolutely loved my time with these two last week! Paige, like a lot of our brides, is a photographer herself! She’s talented, full of life, energetic and creative. I felt the pressure to take this location that she knows well and make it look fresh and knew to her!! Nikhil is an audio engineer for Apple (which we think is fascinating!) and despite hardly ever wearing a suit, he wore one for Paige and made all of her outfit dreams come true!

I’m so excited to share this final 2020 Wedding with you all!! It’s a special one! We photographed this beautiful wedding day on our own 10 year anniversary! Ten years ago on this day, we were celebrating in my parent’s backyard under a massive white tent too! This was my brother-in-law’s baby sister’s wedding day and celebrating with the Malizia family was such a treat! They are a family MADE for weddings!
