Amanda & Chris!

Friday, June 26, 2009


A few weeks ago I was able to go see one of the final Nine Inch Nails concerts and I was just ecstatic when I learned that Trent Reznor had set a very lax audio/video/photography policy for the tour. I had already purchased AWESOME seats since it was the last tour and add that to the fact that I could bring in my pro gear.... OMG. I just about died.

Nine Inch Nails has been one of my favorite bands since I was like 14! In high school I actually had one of those large wall size posters of Trent Reznor above my bed (how embarrassing to admit!). It always was a dream/fantasy of mine to be able to photograph him live. And well just about 15 years later I got the chance!

As geeky and fangirl as it sounds, looking at him through the lens of my camera with the music pounding in my ears and my heart pounding out of my chest... I was out of my mind. It was one of the best experiences I have ever had.

Enjoy a few of my favorites!

How quintessential NIN is this?

Jonathan took this last shot since he had a taller vantage point. It was at the very end after the encore. *sigh*

And yes.. I will be picking one of the images to print BIG and hang in the house! Maybe not over our bed but somewhere!

Also here are a few NIN videos that showcase some of the more recent music which I think is just *so* amazing. Most people are only familiar with the hits but as the years have gone the music has matured so much and has so much depth. Also they are all filmed by the AAAHHHMMAAZZZIIINNGGGG Rob Sheridan who has been working with NIN for like the last 10 years. His photography/videography of the band is to die for!

Payal & Kevin!

On Sunday I met up with Payal and Kevin in Old Town Alexandria to shoot our "Getting to Know You" session.

These two are just absolutely ADORABLE.

That shade of blue looks so stunning on her doesn't it?

Outfit change!

I just love this one...

Too funny!

I had a ton of fun with Payal & Kevin and am so excited for their wedding this October! They are getting married just 8 days before my own wedding!

Speaking of my own wedding, are you guys at all interested in me blogging about my own crazy wedding planning?

Dale & Mike - 06.06.09

I just loved being able to spend the day at Dale & Mike's wedding. They are such a sweet couple and I was honored to be their photographer.

I met up with Dale at the Ritz-Carlton in Tysons while she got ready for the wedding.

And then we were on our way to the ceremony!

During the ceremony they surprised Mike's daughter with a family medallion.

Mr. & Mrs.

Stunning couple!

Party Time!!

Thanks guys, I had such a good time at your wedding!

Puja & Sajan's Totally AWESOME Rockin' Wedding!

I knew we were going to have a blast at this wedding as soon as Puja ran up to introduce herself to me at Arti & Gautam's wedding last fall. She has the most fun personality and Sajan is a total riot. It you remember they totally rocked their engagement session a few months ago!

They got married at the stunning Baltimore Marriott Waterfront. All of the decor was done by the highly talented mother/ daughter duo at Partyland Flowers & Event Decor. Every time I get to see their work I am just floored by the creativity and beauty of everything they put together.

My second shooter Tracy Timmester was amazing and helped me get every yummy detail captured. (check out her blog post to see some photos she got while hanging with the guys)

I started out hanging with Puja and the rest of the women.

She just takes my breath away here!

Once she was all ready we arranged a first look between her and Sajan. I just LOVE doing that.


Bridal party fun!

We loved the light so much where we did the first look that we went back there to grab some quick portraits before the ceremony.

The ceremony!

Doesn't Saj have the BEST smile ever?

During the cocktail hour I went up to the suite with Puja while she changed for the reception.

Then Tracy and I worked the ballroom for those amazing details. Oh and something to note... the amazing programs, table numbers and invitations (didn't get a shot of those sadly) were all designed by my friend and former bride Arti! Please go check out her site for her design company Zoya Couture!

The bride and groom's entrance was great!

First Dance!

And finally some AWESOME dance floor shots!

I had a blast at this wedding!
