Lila and Steven's Cinco De Mayo Courthouse Wedding (Washington D.C.)

Oh! I got plenty of time
Oh! You got light in your eyes
And you’re standing here beside me
I love the passing of time
— The Talking Heads

I haven't blogged a wedding in awhile, even though I've photographed some amazing ceremonies this year. It seems so intimidating to try and summarize such huge events in one small one grouping of images. Anyways, I'm going to try to blog more and Lila and Steven are the perfect couple with which to start. 

This was my first courthouse wedding. And it was perfect.  Family came in from out of town, speeches were read, tears were shed. Plus, Lila and the judge volunteer together, how cool is that? 

The best and the hardest part about photographing weddings is you fall a little bit in love with the couple. And this couple melted my heart. The first look alone brought tears to my eyes. So much love!
