About City Tavern Club:

“Originally constructed in 1796, the City Tavern Club functioned as both an inn and a major hub of civic life in the area during the early Federal period. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and other Founding Fathers frequented the Tavern during this time.

Throughout the 19th century, the Tavern changed hands many times and was known by many names until it was converted for retail use in 1898. By 1959, the building had fallen into a severe state of disrepair and was scheduled for demolition to make way for a parking lot. A group of Georgetowners happened upon the Tavern and recognized the Federal period architecture. They realized that the building was a landmark of significant historical value.  The City Tavern Association was formed to restore the old tavern and preserve its authenticity and the building was reopened in 1962 as a private social club.

Today the City Tavern continues the traditions set forth by the Founding Fathers and is a second home to many distinguished members of Washington’s political and social elite.”

About the Couple:

When asked about their love story, Elly told me that they went on a blind date set up by a mutual friend and there was an immediate spark! Will invited her to visit DC for a Valentine’s party the following weekend, while Elly was still living in New Jersey. They started dating that weekend, and their first date as a couple was skiing in Virginia (hence the ski-themed cake topper). After getting engaged in October 2021, these two planned the perfect Georgetown/D.C. wedding, complete with a stunning Catholic ceremony. Their modern reception was held at City Tavern Club in D.C. Their hobbies include philosophical conversations, exploring the D.C. area, and cooking together!

WHY we're the perfect match:

WE WANT THE SAME THINGS

As a wedding photographer, my priority, is capturing your experience in an authentic light. But more than that, it's making sure you spend time with people - YOUR people - and that THOSE moments are captured. When it comes to your wedding day, I'm an efficient photographer WITHOUT compromising quality, and truly feel that is what most couples need during their wedding experience. I want you to be able to run (not walk) to cocktail hour, dance to the Wobble at your reception (if you're into that), and not have to rush around on your wedding day. For 95% of my couples, we get photos done EARLY and you're free to party with your people right afterwards.

When you hire me as your wedding photographer, you hire a fun sense of organization with timeline prep, efficiency, and an overall sense of servitude for you and your guests on your wedding day.

You should definitely hire her now for your photography needs!"

Andrea is so professional and detail-oriented, while still being fun, friendly, and loving. She feels like she is your best friend as soon as you meet her!

She goes above and beyond in everything she does.

LIZ & ZACK

"Her excitement about being our photographer was contagious."

From the first meeting, we knew Andrea was an experienced photographer who was also warm and bubbly, which is the perfect type of person to have around you on your wedding day. She was extremely helpful with answering any questions we had, and was very responsive. Andrea is incredibly organized and efficient. She captured the best moments and got all the shots we wanted without making it feel like the photography was taking over the day. Working with her was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend her!
