Thoughts

Matthew and Clare

Taking advantage of the opportunity, I grab Amanda and both camera kits, high-tailing to DC. Amanda is the assistant camerawoman, gorgeous date, and incredible dancer:

I had the privilege to photograph and film the marriage of dear friend, Clare, and husband, Matthew, on 14 June 2014. The wedding will remain one of its kind.

Descending upon the Catholic University of America, the bridal party, friends, and family spent time at the President's house (on campus), celebrating at a small - but packed - chapel, and both dining before dancing in the Catholic University's Law School courtyard and atrium.

Historically, the setting for wedding activities would seem either arbitrary or uninspired. But they were necessities and proved beautifully designed. Clare is a painter, a true artist, truth be told.

An enormous bridal party, lots of children, and a wonderful couple. They were cornerstone to a successful wedding weekend. Photos below and film still holed up in the proverbial editing bay, I had what will be an unforgettable time working for and with friends.
