This past fall I had the pleasure of travelling to Washington D.C. to photograph an old friend’s wedding. I’ve known Hideki since high school and when we asked me to come to D.C. to photograph his wedding to Tomoko, I was honored. This has been the 4th wedding I have traveled to photography outside of Colorado in the past few months, and it was a blast. The bride, Tomoko, as well as several friends and family members are from Japan, which gave me another great opportunity to meet people from another culture. For anyone who knows me well, they know that this is one of my favorite things about photography.
It was a lot of fun. After photographing them getting ready at the hotel in Roslyn, we drove over to the Lincoln Memorial where Hideki had proposed to Tomoko to do some photos there. Even though the memorial steps were very busy, when we walked around to the back side of the memorial, we had the place to ourselves.
After photographing at the memorial, we went back to the Top of the Town in Roslyn for the ceremony and reception. The venue overlooked all of D.C. and the Potomac.
