From time to time we are contacted about doing a wedding with short notice. Alicia and John got in touch with us a scant 3 weeks before their wedding date! We were on our way up to Old Town Alexandria for an engagement shoot when I called Alicia to set up a time to meet and discuss the details of their day, and we moved some things around in our schedule to talk at the coffee shop the next morning. Something I say to all our wedding couples is that I think it's important that we meet in person (or Skype) to see if we are a good fit for each other. During our discussion I could tell Alicia was a little frustrated with her current situation and it was in no part a lack of planning on her or John's behalf. Once we got all the details worked out and got to know each other a little I could see the relief in Alicia's expression; the beautiful smile we would see so much on her wedding day began to show. Here's a look at some of my favorite moments from Alicia and John's wedding:
I remember Alicia laughing at the way I held her veil up to my lens to make the right side of this picture go white.
