Stacey & Brandon married at Palmetto Bluff in Bluffton, South Carolina, just a few minutes across the border from gorgeous Savannah, on a Thursday. Because they’re cool like that. I never thought a few weeks later we’d have reporters calling us asking us questions about the venue because of Justin & Hailey Bieber’s wedding there the same year. I couldn’t really help them – but I could tell them how amazing Stacey and Brandon were, and how wonderful it was photographing their wedding there. On a Thursday. Because they’re cool like that.

Sebastian & MacKenzie gathered with us by the white marble memorials and gardens of the capital of the United States, the National Mall. We watched the sunrise together as we photographed their engagement photos in Washington, DC., beneath the titanic pillars of the Lincoln Monument. This session reminded us not to doubt getting up early for engagement sessions in downtown DC. Totally worth it to chase light like this.
