Hollin Hall Wedding in Alexandria, Virginia

Lara Swanson, who also runs So You’re EnGAYged with me, and I met through both being wedding photographers. And even though our friendship has grown so much since that first meeting, being able to shoot with Lara is still one of the funniest things to do. A lot of photographers have egos the size of Texas, and when your second shooting for them- you feel that. You’re second. Your just there for them to look good.

With Lara, I LOVE second shooting. I feel like were a team and we have one goal: to get kick-ass pictures of this amazing wedding. And one big thing: she trusts me. She trusted me and let me go creatively even when I just started doing weddings. Since then? It’s only become better!

So I was lucky enough to second shoot for Lara at Liz & Nick’s wedding at Hollin Hall in Alexandria, VA. With tons of etsy details and the personalities to match, it was so much fun to shoot this wedding. I cracked up when I saw their cake toppers- a bride and a knight in shining armor!
