Chris and Clare | MARRIED!

I first met Clare and Chris (and their adorable puppy, Woodrow!) at Chris’ home in Arlington for their engagement session several months ago…and after seeing how absolutely beautiful Clare is, I was already excited to get to photograph her as a bride! And she didn’t disappoint…Clare looked STUNNING on her wedding day and I couldn’t help but think that Chris must feel like the luckiest guy in the world to be marrying her. Not only does Clare look like a model, but she also has a huge heart. Clare and Chris made time to have a mini reception at the church for the special needs kids that she works with. When the newlyweds walked into the room where the mini reception was, everyone was SO excited to see Clare dressed in her white dress…They all wanted to give her hugs and congratulate her and it was such a special moment! I love that Chris shares her caring and generous heart…The two of them fit perfectly together as a couple, and it was clear from the comments their friends and family made through out the evening that everyone else thinks so too!

Clare and Chris, thank you so much for allowing me to capture your wedding day! It was such an honor and I am so happy for you two! I hope you enjoy my favorites from the day!

And thank you so much to Brittany for second shooting with me!
