katie + daniel | top of the town


I am so thrilled to finally share this wedding! Katie and Daniel were married at Top of the Town two weeks ago, and their wedding day was absolutely amazing. The weather was incredible all day long, and I loved exploring the city with Katie and Daniel (and their fun bridal party!) before the ceremony. They were surrounded by an amazing group of friends and family, and I honestly enjoyed every minute of their day. (I also need to give a shout out to my awesome second shooter, Courtney! She captured some of the detail photos below.) It was definitely difficult to narrow down the images, but here are just a few of my favorites from their wedding day…

Katie, you’re beautiful!


Daniel, you’re pretty handsome too. :)


Katie and Daniel got ready at Le Meridien, and their first look took place on a terrace overlooking the city. The light and location were just amazing! It might have been my favorite first look location to date.

After the first look, Katie and Daniel were joined by the bridal party for photos around DC. The bridal party on film is still one of my favorite things ever.

Before the ceremony, guests were encouraged to enjoy a glass of champagne. I’m convinced that this is the best way to greet your guests.


The champagne was made even better with an appearance by Barack and Hillary.
