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!
The Spring season is finally HERE you guys! My weddings are fairly spread out through spring and summer but I was extra pumped to kick it off with Toby + Kristy for their Woodlawn Farm Wedding here in Southern Maryland.
Im a sucker for simple and I love the simple yet elegant touches these two incorporated into their wedding day. Kristy looked stunning in her gown… so stunning that Toby was blown away when he turned around and saw his soon-to-be wife standing in front of him. In fact, their first look may be one of my favorites. Kristy was still walking up behind Toby when he started to lose it but the anticipation was REAL.
I love that these two had a more intimate wedding day. I felt like I was able to really interact with the guests more and take in the celebration on a different level. They even made sure to make Kristys son, Sho, a big part of the day. He had his own first look with his momma, was a groomsmen for Toby, read during the ceremony, poured his own sand into the unity sand jar and snagged some first dance time with his mom. He even jumped in on the cake action when Toby + Kristy smashed the cake in each others faces. haha It was the sweetest moment.
They went out in fashion surrounded by their loved ones with fire in hand. Sparkler exits can be magical! Especially when there are a few wizarding matches inter-mixed. Everyone was working on their swish and flick =P. I had such a good time celebrating these two human beings and Im still not sure how I narrowed down these favorites because they are all perfect. Have the best time on your honeymoon you two!
Shout out to all the vendors who helped bring this day together.
