See the album... Pleasantdale Chateau Rachel & Daniel

Happy Monday! No work today? ( Labor Day!) Lucky you! I hope you all are kicking back and enjoying a nice glass of wine and late summer evening. I know my potential brides and grooms often enjoy seeing albums and it allows them to imagine what their book will look like. This weekend I had the privilege of delivering Rachel and Daniel's swanky DC house (with a rooftop overlooking the city that made me want to throw a dinner party!) I usually (insure) and mail my albums, it was SUCH a treat to watch them ooh- and- ahh as they flipped the pages. Thought I'd share with you all this week...



 I'll often have potential clients ask if we do family pictures... Of course! ( Unless you ask us not too!)

Adorable first look. I love the emotion on the right picture




 We always make a point to capture all the beautiful details you planned of course, and all those big in-the-moment smiles...




(This particular couple was not wanting a lot of bridal party pictures but I threw one in there and they did love it- yay!) 












Did you love? Hope so. Hey guess what? We're almost at 500 likes on Facebook... share the love but spreading the link if you know someone who has a rockstar boyfriend that needs to step up to the plate :) http://www.facebook.com/MichelleVanTinePhotography






 Also, want to know a little bit about more about what we do behind the scenes between shoots... there's a lot that happens between us cliking and you unwrapping...  join the fun and see behind the scene shots of us making the magic on Instagram @michellevantinephotography.com

Clifton Wedding: A laid back wine tasting

When I received and email from Meghan, just a FEW weeks before her wedding saying that she had not yet found a photographer who inspired until she stumbled across my work... I was flattered and nervous!  As a photographer herself, she wanted images that were artistic and laid back, like their beautiful day.  The wedding started with a wine tasting, followed by ice cream and drinks and apps at a local restaurant. Beautiful day! Meghan, I hope lived up to the standard!

White Hall Manor Wedding: Sallie and Heang

Happy Monday! I know it's a pain in the butt to go back to work, so I hope visiting the blog every week gives you a little smile, seeing art, beauty and a brief window into the love of a man and a woman. If I could title this post something less practical ( Search engine optimization always in mind!) I would rename it BEAUTY.  Plain and simple. It's feminine, soft, and absolutely all things beautiful. There were other things at the wedding... a groom, family, decor... but Sallie stole the attention every minute with her timeless beauty. Hope you enjoy. MAJOR high five to Pablo and Rebekah who shot this wedding, and I threw in some love with the editing. Enjoy

Brides always try NOT to cry as not to 'ruin the makeup'.... I always say, let it loose. So sweet...
