Kyra & Jason // Washington, D.C. Wedding
Tara and Jeff Photography always strive for something special and striking when clients choose us specifically for our modern, classic, and creative photography. Kyra and Jason knew their wedding would be incredible and wanted the photographs to showcase the elements of their special day. We started off with the couple getting ready at the Grand Hyatt in Washington, DC. The rooms were spacious for Kyra’s bridal party, and had a great modern look and feel. Afterward, we headed to one of the couple’s favorite DC monuments, the Lincoln Memorial. Despite thousands of people everywhere on one of the first amazing spring days of the year, we were able to capture some beautiful bridal portraits of Kyra and Jason with careful timing, posing, and lighting. They also received many wedding wishes from the memorial visitors. After leaving the Lincoln Memorial, we arrived at the infamous National Museum of Women in the Arts for the ceremony and reception. The dinner tables were set up on the balcony overlooking the dance floor and bar which served Kyra and Jason’s signature drinks. The wedding was a wonderful combination of people, incredible locations, and wedding details. Check out some of our favorite images. Congratulations to Kyra and Jason. Enjoy the photos!

Favorites of 2013 // Weddings & Engagements
It seems like just yesterday I was cleaning and prepping all my gear for 2013, and somehow it’s over already? Looking back, there’s no doubt it went by quicker than ANY other year before it.

Incredible weddings at some of DC’s finest and most unique venues were plentiful, more clients became friends, new travel adventures continued, and shooting alongside Tara Parekh made 2013 a year to remember.

With this year completely set to go (and one wedding shot already!), if it’s half as fulfilling as 2013 then I’m in for a real treat. Thanks to everyone and without further ado, here are my favorite images taken from 2013. Enjoy!

Megan & Matt // Hay-Adams Wedding
Meet Megan & Matt. An incredible couple that had one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever shot. They selected perhaps the classiest and most elegant hotel in all of Washington DC, the Hay-Adams. From start to finish it was non-stop excitement! Many of Megan’s family and friends came from Great Britain, and it was a pleasure to spend the evening with everyone. Throughout the reception we had a few chances to capture the stunning view that the Hay-Adams Hotel has to offer. It’s one of a kind!

Melinda & Pat // DC Day After Session
Melinda & Pat are back! I’m thrilled to showcase this session as one of my last blog posts for 2012. Melinda & Pat wanted to spend a few hours going around DC in their wedding attire. We stopped by the Jefferson Memorial and then ventured around the Capitol. The weather was great for this late in the year and with a little patience we captured stunning images without anyone in them.
Enjoy!

Meggin & Doug // Sonoma Wedding
Meggin & Doug’s wedding was one of the most incredible weddings I’ve ever had the privileged of being part of. Meggin and Doug are friends from college, with Doug and I being members of Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity. When they got in touch about flying me out for their wedding I was ecstatic! I knew right from the start their wedding would be special.They selected the beautiful Gundlach Bundschu Winery, which was in southern Sonoma just outside of Napa.

With rain looming all morning the weather turned out to be absolutely gorgeous, with a sunset beyond compare.

Truly great people + a great setting + perfect weather all contributed to this unforgettable wedding.

Here are just a handful of my favorite images from the day. Photography by myself and Tara Parekh.
Enjoy!
