Sweet Aubrey and Loo.  I just love seeing the two of them together.  When Loo looks at Aubrey, I can see tenderness and awe in his eyes.  We met them six years ago through our friends Todd and Sara, whose beautiful vineyard wedding we photographed in 2008.  In the time that Jason and I have been friends with Aubrey and Loo, we’ve come to know them as our friends who can make great music, delicious food and beautiful babies.  Aubrey has a little baby girl on the way due sometime in September!

It was only natural for the two of them to have a casual and laid back wedding amongst their friends and family.   The celebration took place at Aubrey’s parent’s home in rural Amissville on what felt like the hottest day of the year.  Just about everyone found themselves at some point in the pool, myself and Jason included.

The day before the wedding, Jason and I, along with Todd and a few other friends were hanging out in our dining room.  While Todd was trying to write his speech for the toast, someone came up with the idea of writing a haiku.  This is what we all came up with, and yes, this is exactly what Todd recited at the wedding:

Loo and Aubrey

Louis… is a short ninja

Aubrey… is pregnant

Laughter all around, and Todd continued with a heartfelt speech, and at the end of it, read another haiku:

Loo and Aubrey

They are a perfect pairing

Lifetime happiness

Thank you so much Louis and Aubrey, for being our good friends and for letting me and Jason be a part of your lives and celebration.  It was so amazing to be amongst all of our dear friends on such a special day.  We love you and wish you a lifetime of happiness!


Quick interlude here… Todd read one last haiku that went like this:

Loo and Aubrey


Let’s drink some bourbon

I am probably on my way to Northern Virginia when you read this.  There is so much that I will have to blog about this month, and I just can’t wait to share everything with you all!

Our friends Loo and Aubrey got married late last month in Amissville.  Jason and I photographed their entire wedding on 35mm film, a first for us.  As soon as we receive our work back from the awesome Richard Photo Lab, I will post those images… so excited!

We are currently headed to Fairfax and staying at the Wesfields Marriott where JJ and Sarah’s wedding reception will be taking place.  I’ll be up tomorrow at the crack to hang out with JJ and the guys for a groom’s golf outing at Twin Lakes Country Club in Clifton.  Jason photographed Sarah’s brother’s wedding several years ago –  Ryan and Kelly… it will be great to see them and the whole family again!

We’ll be back in Charlottesville to photograph John and Keri’s wedding at Ash Lawn-Highland the weekend after.  These guys have been absolutely amazing to work with.  They literally scheduled their wedding date around our our availability… how flattering is that?!  They have three fun-filled days planned out for their wedding weekend.

Our third week of August will be Sejal and Kunal’s 4 day Indian wedding starting on Thursday the 18th to Sunday the 22nd!  Jason and I are obviously excited about this!  Saturday and Sunday’s celebrations will be taking place at the brand new Hilton Richmond Hotel & Spa in Short Pump.  The new hotel is stunning inside.  We love shooting there, and I have to say, their in-house shampoo and conditioner is the bomb.   I had to order my own bottles after using the hotel’s.

We’ll also have a couple of engagement shoots that you probably will see in September.  Please stay tuned.  In the meantime, I hope everyone is enjoying their summer.  Stay cool, stay hydrated and be safe out there!
