Washington DC Engagement || Katie & Greg


Katie & Greg had a glorious and almost private Engagement Session under the Cherry Blossoms in Washington DC. It was the perfect setting for their romance to shine while I captured the true beauty of who they are together.

We almost to rethink our Cherry Blossom plans altogether due to the crazy weather changes in the transition¬†from winter to spring. But just like in a good love story… the blossoms endured and only seemed all the more lovely after overcoming freezing temps and a March snow.

I am so looking forward to their December wedding at the Hyatt in Cambridge… It is sure to be a moving and gorgeous affair. Katie is going to walk down the same aisle as her mother, and grandmother did when they promised forever. I can’t wait to see what Katie & White Oak Weddings pull together.

How did you and Greg meet and fall in love? My version – We met on match.com in February 2015. I came across his profile and ‘liked’ his picture (the actual term may be to favorite the profile or wink at him – I can’t remember). He told me later that his membership had just expired but there was something about me he really liked, so he paid for a new membership just to write me back.

Usually, match dates consist of coffee or a drink in case it doesn’t go well (quick exit), but after a few messages back and forth he asked me to go to dinner on a Saturday night. Our first dinner in DuPont Circle lasted for about 4 hours, and we went to the National Portrait Gallery and out for oysters on our second date on a Sunday afternoon. Our third date was at a restaurant in Cleveland Park and that’s where he later told me he realized he was falling for me – under an awning in the rain while waiting for my uber.

From there, we started spending more and more time together and realized very quickly how much we meant to each other…and they lived happily ever after.

Manda is
A creative genius!

I met Manda when she photographed a wedding I was maid of honor in. I got to know her throughout the wedding planning process and spent lots of time with her on the day of that wedding. Her demeanor, positive energy, and absolutely stunning shots made her a natural choice for me to select when I got engaged. She was an absolute joy to be around when she photographed my wedding.

WOW all I can say is WOW!!! Hiring Manda as my wedding photographer was the absolute best decision I made for my wedding!!!

If you are looking for a photographer who will instantly make you (and your not photo-loving fianc√©) feel completely at ease, who has the kindest heart and who will make your wedding look like an absolute dream you want Manda!

Manda was an absolute dream to work with! Capturing natural images of the joy and emotion on our wedding day was very important to us...
Manda excels at just that. 

 After looking at Manda's work and hearing story after story from others about how talented she is, we knew we had to have her capture our wedding. . She has the incredible ability to capture loving faces at just the right time and at just the right angle. She is thoughtful, courteous, and appreciates the value of a couple's wedding day.

She is incredibly creative and it shows through her work. We highly (highly) recommend Manda!!!!
