The Potomac View Terrace | Julia + Johnny


I loved kicking off wedding season with these two! Julia and Johnny were married earlier this month, and their day was so full of joy and light– it was a complete dream to photograph! These two could not have been sweeter… They have such a steady and genuine love for one another, and it was amazing to capture it. Julia and Johnny were also surrounded by an incredibly supportive (and fun!) group of family and friends. I could not have asked for a more amazing wedding to start the year!

I began the day with Julia and her girls at Julia’s parents’ home. The light was incredible, and I loved capturing these sweet details before we headed off to the church…

While I was with the girls, Susan grabbed a few photos of the guys before heading over to St. Aloysius Catholic Church for the ceremony.

There are so many gorgeous spots around D.C., but Union Station has always been a favorite of mine. Doesn’t Julia look absolutely amazing?!

After portraits around D.C. we walked over to The Potomac View Terrace for the reception. It was such a beautiful location!

The reception was a blast and so much fun to photograph! Johnny’s family has a tradition of parading into wedding receptions with props and flags, and it was amazing!
