Brooke+Eric | New Year’s Eve Wedding | Washington, DC Wedding Photographer

As we close out 2015, we figured what better way to wish you all a Happy New Year than to feature Brooke and Eric’s rockin’ wedding from last New Year’s Eve. These two hail from Washington, DC’s Shaw neighborhood and they kept their big day super local. Wanting to celebrate their neighborhood through and through, Brooke and Eric chose their favorite local brewpub, Right Proper Brewing Co. for their celebration. Needless to say, they brought in 2015 with a bang, surrounded by friends, family and a whole lot of love. I hope the start to their 2016 is just as joyful and fun! Many wishes of a Happy New Year to all of you from us at Photoladylove!

Veronica + Alberto | Old San Juan, Puerto Rico | Wedding Photos | Destination Wedding Photographer

Do I have a treat for you guys today! This was easily one of my favorite weddings of 2014, not just for the breathtakingly gorgeous setting, but for the 2 people who tied the knot. Alberto and Veronica hold a very special place in my heart. I’ve known Alberto for years, back since our days at Syracuse University when he was always willing to use his design genius and collaborate with us photojournalism students. He’s a wonderful friend, super talented visual artist, and he brought his rum, salsa moves and spirit directly from Puerto Rico. Well, Alberto met his match. I love Alberto, but I LOVE Veronica. She is sweetness and playfulness personified, and she is the perfect fit for Alberto. So…as you can imagine, I was tickled pink to get to document their wedding in Old San Juan, PR. Knowing the groom, I expected beautiful details, and my wish was fulfilled. Every flower was made of paper, the lighting was spectacular, the settings chosen stunning. From El Morro, a 16th-century citadel perched on the northwestern-most point of Old San Juan, the Cathedral of San Juan Bautista and Museo Casa Blanca, one of the colonial structures still standing in Old San Juan, all connected by charming alleyways strewn with sleeping cats, the day was a feast for the eyes. Most importantly though I was honored to be the one charged with documenting this day. As beautiful as every detail was, the best part of the experience was watching these two together. So many wishes of love and a happy life together to Alberto and Veronica. Following are my favorites from the day: enjoy!
