I think Morgan and Chuck couldn’t have made my 4AM alarm better. I spent the morning with these two walking around the Tidal Basin in Washington, D.C. and Old Town Alexandria capturing their engagement photos, and let me tell you, it was such a fun time. I didn’t even feel like I got less sleep than usual (it was probably the Starbucks though, let’s be honest).
There aren’t many words that can accurately describe this weekend for me. Kim and Stephen’s special day at The Granary at Valley Pike was more than I could have asked for! These two are such a special couple and the fact that I got to be a part of their day was such a blessing.
I loved the fact that the day started with a surprise. From the get go, Kim had hired one of her and Stephen’s favorite local musicians to play during the ceremony and cocktail hour as a surprise to her new husband. Stephen’s face was absolutely PRICELESS and I loved being in on the secret. Yay for love’s endless surprises and the joy that fills the room on wedding days <3 I’m blessed to do what I do. (also: I’m starting a petition that all future Andrea Cable Photography couples have a donut bar at their wedding)
KIM’S VEIL. ENOUGH SAID. She had the absolute most beautiful veil I have ever seen and absolutely rocked the heck out of it. It was truly one of my favorite aspects of their sunset portraits. Both Kim and Stephen were so willing to take as much time as we needed for their portraits and it truly was amazing. Sunset portraits are one of my favorite times during a wedding day
Kim and Stephen,
THANK YOU. From the bottom of my heart, I am absolutely overjoyed to have captured your special day. I can’t believe the chance to become your photographer kind of fell upon my lap unexpectedly, but I am just so happy it did. Enjoy your first few days of marriage, you two! Can’t wait to see all of the adventures you go on together <3
