Sunday, December 18, 2016,  I was lucky enough to photograph the Winter Showcase & Holiday Party for the Fred Astaire Dance Studio (Fairfax, VA).  The event was held at Washington Golf & Country Club in Arlington, Virginia.  It was a posh affair with a showcase of professional dancers and their students.  Additionally, there were some professional only showcases as well as open dancing in between.

I highly recommend the Fred Astaire Dance School as their is always food, fun, friendship and most importantly LOTS of dancing.  It is an amazing dance school, with an extremely talented staff, great for all ages.  They are even teaching me to dance and I am loving every minute of it!

While I don’t photograph many weddings here the United States, I truly love Destination Weddings.  Couples running off to far away exotic places to celebrate their love and future together.  It’s so romantic and you can just feel the love in the air.

I think I love these small destination weddings so much because that it what my husband and I did so many years ago in Mykonos, Greece.  We didn’t have a photographer of course so all we have is one little image taken by a tourist or a local (I don’t quite remember) who was walking by after maybe stopping at the little cafe in the harbor of Mykonos.  It’s almost in focus, and yes it was film.  No do overs.

WEB  Destination Weddings

So when a few years ago while living in Naples, Italy I had the opportunity to photograph some amazing weddings with photographer Renee Williams.  Of course I jumped at the chance!  What fun and to give them some visual memories for years to come…awesome!  Back then I wasn’t really blogging or posting much.   But now I find myself now missing the beauty and wonder of the vibrant city of Naples.

Please click on the image below to enjoy a few more pictures of that lovely and VERY HOT day with this couple in love.

I wish I could just follow couples in love around the globe to document their special wedding day.  Anyone….Anyone?

You have spent time and money getting coordinating outfits, getting hair styled, driving to your session, paying your session fees and all you purchased were some digital images. How often do you view those images?  Are they on your computer or social media?  Has your computer crashed so you don’t have the image anymore?  Can you find your images quickly?

So, was it worth it?

Isn’t it about time to see those amazing images of your beautiful family every day?  Freshen up your decor with prints of you and your family.

Don’t know what to buy?

No problem, let me help you!  Give me a call, email, or book a print consultation appointment online and let me help you decide what images would look fantastic on your walls.  I can help you decide if prints, metal, or canvas are best for your budget and style. Are you a visual person?  I can even design a wall for you so you can see what it would look like in person.  Scaled and sized to your home.  All I need is a quick picture of your wall.  Yes, iPhone pictures are fine!  First, tape up a piece of 8.5×11 paper to your wall horizontally then snap your picture.  It’s best if you take the picture from straight across the room, and be sure to include a little of the ceiling and floor to get the right perspective.

Voila! I can now custom design your wall like these… CollectionPreview 1024x748 Where did I put that digital image?     CollectionPreview1 1024x748 Where did I put that digital image?   CollectionPreview2 Where did I put that digital image?   CollectionPreview3 Where did I put that digital image? CollectionPreview5 Where did I put that digital image? CollectionPreview4 Where did I put that digital image?
