My brother and his now wife got married secretly. The actual elopement had no attendees.
One week later, I visited to take their wedding portraits. I braided Casey’s hair. She did her own makeup. We went to the National Arboretum, home to beautiful trees and a discarded set of columns. These columns used to stand in front of the US Capitol, but now they stand in the Ellipse Meadow.
I love wedding portraits. Day after sessions. Sometimes on a wedding day, you don’t have time for more than 15 minutes of portraits together. We had a couple hours to take these and it was terrific.
