We couldn’t have asked for a better day. All of the hard work was completed for the most important day in John & Kaitlyn’s life… and as John watched his new wife walk down the aisle towards him, he couldn’t contain his joy. Seeing them finally together, for good, after years of John’s service and years of distance, they were united in this moment of pure bliss surrounded by their most loved and cherished.

I love John and Kaitlyn’s love, because it’s real and very relatable to me. Their chemistry was obvious and instant; yet had to shared in spurts as John split his time between where he was stationed in Texas. Seeing them finally together, for good, after years of John’s service and years of distance was a treat they shared with everyone around them. They were united in this moment of pure bliss surrounded by their most loved and cherished. I’m so happy for you two! Congrats! -C

“You know your mom is awesome, right?”

My first words to Jason when we met at Georgetown. He didn’t even flinch—I mean, how can you deny the truth? I worked with Debbie over the course of a few summers for a company called Wear Red Lipstick. She and her business partner Michelle had so much faith in me to photograph models in their outfits. We had the best times drinking mimosas and blasting Fleetwood Mac as we “worked” away together. Ah, those were the days. Now Debbie’s baby boy is all grown up and engaged to the lovely Alexa.

And Alexa? I loved her right away. She was sitting across from Debbie when we first met at a Starbucks to discuss details of her wedding. She talked elaborately with her hands about how colorful her family is, who is originally from Cuba. I perked up right away. Did I ever mention how much I love shooting culture?! I was drawn to her bright radiating energy that one could only associate with a giddy bride. We were also wearing the same nail polish shade: Essie in Chinchilly. Fate? Perhaps.

Anyway, enough about me. You probably want to hear about how these two lovebirds came together, right?

Jason and Alexa knew of each other since freshman year. Isn’t that always the case with social media at a college these days? But their paths didn’t cross until their junior year at Radford, and the chemistry couldn’t be avoided any longer. She casually invited him to a theme party, and they went dressed as the Incredibles. One glimpse of seeing him in those red spandex pants  and she just knew: he was The One.


Alexa and Jason, I’m so happy for you both and cannot wait for your upcoming wedding in Florida! –C

I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect couple for my first ever cherry blossom photo shoot. As you can see in these photos, their love is natural and comfortable. Megan and Dave are both fun, cracking jokes as the morning (and coffee) kicked in. I fell in love with the way the early morning light shone through her hair, and the way that they laughed effortlessly throughout the shoot. Navigating our way around tourists, photographers and runners, I felt that they were the only two people at the tidal basin.

They met as they both campaigned for then Senator Barack Obama during the presidential primaries in 2008. Born and raised in the midwest, they helped him surprise the field by taking the Iowa Caucus. They followed their successes to Washington D.C. where they both work in the administration. Megan and Dave came to Washington and embraced the lifestyle, while still holding on to their midwestern roots.  It shows in their character — It only takes a few moments to realize that they are smart and hard-working yet laid back and witty. Similar to the cherry blossoms, Washington D.C. is lucky to have these beautiful transplants.

DIY: Drinking Glasses Out of Recycled Wine Bottles

The time we spent volunteering at Palmar Tent Lodge went a little like this:

Wake up, go for a stroll, bartend/greet new guests, enjoy the sun, talk to Bob the parrot, and in between these tasks, we’d do some awesome DIY projects for the lodge. One of my favorites was making new drinking glasses for the bar. Since it’s a small island, there were few places to buy decent drinking glasses, and what’s more fun than making your own?!

STEP 1:

Collect awesome bottles! Then you soak them in water for a few days so the label will come off easily. You CAN speed it up by soaking them in boiling water, but some of the stickiness may remain on the bottle depending on the label.

Tip: It’s VERY important to remove ALL of the stickiness/glue and label before you begin. Otherwise it will affect the quality of the cut on the glass.

STEP 2:

Kristin found a simple and extremely efficient glass cutter on Amazon that creates a thin hairline scratch around the circumference of the bottle.

You begin by keeping the bottom of the bottle flat on whatever surface you’re working on and keeping it level so the cut is even. Then steadily turn the bottle while pressing the cutter into the glass, stopping once you complete the cut all the way around.

Tip: Do NOT reinforce the cut. Once you get all the way across once, STOP.

STEP 3:

You create two water baths. One has to be boiling water (must must must be boiling) and the other is an ice bath (with lots and lots of ice!)

The point is to make both of the temperatures extreme to quickly separate the glass at the cut. I’ve made mistakes where I got too impatient to wait for the water to boil, but it’s very important to wait! Or else the glass will crack in places you don’t want it to, and boom, another one bites the dust.

The first couple tries may yield some uneven edges, but keep at it.. you’ll get it eventually! Start out with practice bottles first, and save the fancy ones for when you get the hang of it.

STEP 4:

Voila! You’ve got yourself a glass– BUT beware.. the edges are extremely sharp and dangerous. Both Mike and I cut ourselves pretty bad! We used the Dremel Engraver to sand down the edges and create pretty designs.
