I'm Candace and I'm a destination wedding & portrait photographer based out of the Washington, D.C. area. Chances are you won't find me in the DMV for too long. Come and explore my corner of the world with me!
You guys, Im not going to lie, I have been trying to publish this post on the blog for weeks now! The wifi over in SE Asia was never strong enough to actually LOAD my blog so I have been sitting on this pile of gold for a month! AN ENTIRE MONTH! (Im rolling my eyes so hard) – Now lets flash it back to the first day of our road trip down south back in January. We had a hot date with Tory and Clay, who happen to be friends with Andie. They were beyond gracious and opened their homes to us for the night. I mean the best hosts you could ask for! Clay helped with my beer, had koozies waiting and to top it off, we woke up the next morning and there were freshly baked cinnamon rolls and coffee for us. I mean the BEST hosts. Not to mention, these two are TOTAL babes and killed it that morning for our shoot. We originally planned to start at the crack of dawn but when we woke up, it was extra foggy outside and because of the dense fog, we waited for about an extra hour or so to let that sun burn away some of the fog.
Once the sun started to light things up, we packed up their adorable poochies and went right down the road in their neighborhood to take a few shots with their fur babies, Mallie and Charles. The two cuties poochies south of the mason dixie. I wanted to love Charles so badly, but hes a little off when it comes to new people so I kept my distance… it was hard, but even beyond that, he was the most picture perfect doggo ever. He sat and smiled at everyone. After a few fun and interesting moments with the kiddos, we dropped them back off before we made our way over to Mepkin Abbey for an intimate couples session. These two had us sweatin’! At least I was, it could have been from the humidity, but I’m gonna say it was from Tory and Clay. These two were literal fire! Wait until you see for yourself! Tory killed it in a fiery red gown while Clay cleaned up rather nicely in a classic black suit. These two really know how to dress well! Sending one more big ole thank you to Tory and Clay for their generosity and for being the best couple to kick start our week off with!
