Best of 2013 Senior Portrait Photography

best of 2013 senior portraits

Drum roll please! Here are the Best of 2013 Senior Portrait photography! There were so many phenomenal pictures to choose from that it was difficult to narrow it down!  We loved each and every senior we had the privilege of photographing this year and are looking forward to another great season and meeting the class of 2015.

One of the most exciting things for us during our 2013 season was launching our Senior Model Program which we will be starting again in the next few months so keep your eyes peeled for more info! With beautiful locations such as Mount Ida Farm, Panorama Farm,  and The Boar’s Head we had a great time during our sessions getting to know these fabulous Seniors and capturing their personalities along the way. We couldn’t have done it without our incredibly talented makeup artist Anne Kibler of Charlottesville Makeup Artist, LLC.  and Stylist Joel Codiamat! Thanks so much to everyone who made this season such a great success and congratulations on the Class of 2014, we can’t wait to see you graduate!

Wedding Reception at the Carnegie Institution for Science

carnegie institution for science
Erin and Alexei’s gorgeous wedding reception at the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington, DC is not one we will soon forget! From the grand venue to the beautiful florals by Helen Olivia and delicious catering by Well Dunn this couples special evening reached the height of elegance and fun! We always love to play around with night photography and had the perfect opportunity to take some portraits after the sun went down. Some of Aaron and guest photographer, Matt Ryb‘s  favorite moments in the evening were photographing the unique traditions incorporated into the wedding in honor of Alexei’s Russian heritage (which includes drinking vodka out of the bride’s shoe!) and the newlyweds celebrating with loved ones. For a sweet ending to their wedding day, the happy couple sent off guests with a cupcake from Georgetown Cupcakes! Enjoy looking through more of our favorite wedding pictures and be sure not to miss part 1!
