Weddings + Elopements

The Stills | Washington, DC Elopement Photographer

Guys, you would never tell but on the day of Jermell and Monica’s DC elopement, it was so, so, so hot. Very hot. SUPER HOT. We’re talking fry an egg on the sidewalk hot – and yet, these two were troopers and persevered through the heat all while being this incredibly good-looking. I honestly have the best clients. As much as I love all of the pomp and circumstance of a wedding, elopements hold a special place in my heart. Just because you’re keeping things small doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t celebrate. Also, if you have a little bit of wanderlust, they have a fantastic lifestyle blog with an emphasis on their travels that is pretty damn fantastic.

  • Another lesson in letting the babies do exactly what they want to do #babiesgonnababy
  • Your bridal party squad doesn't need to be huge (or even be a thing!). Surround yourself with people who love you and it will be okay.
  • Thankful to call this mama a friend. Extra thankful that she helped create this ridiculously cute baby that I get to snuggle. This job? Not without its perks, guys.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
