D.C. Garden Glam | A Styled Shoot | Northern Virginia Wedding Photographer

Garden Glam at The Hill Center

All events are a wonderful collaboration of vendors, coming together to bring our clients vision to life. Styled shoots aren’t much different, other than the fact that there’s not really a designated client. Someone, be it an event planner, a photographer, florist or other creative, gets an idea in their head and works to bring it to life. 

Her Vision

This particular vision struck Candice Miller of CM Events, and she spent months bringing together the necessary vendors to carefully curate the picture in her head. 

The Hill Center, in downtown Washington DC played host as we all came together to celebrate and document Candice’s dream. 

The Florals 

Amy Lauren Floral Design did a wonderful job with florals, bringing together rich spring hues to lend to the “garden glam” feel of the shoot. 

The Details 

Everyone knows what a sucker for details I am, so between Emily Baird Design and Bianca,  of A Beyoutiful Fete, I was in complete Heaven. The paper goods were perfect, and with Bianca’s impeccable styling, the details were nothing short the glamourous look Candice was going for. 

The Cake

Glamour can be found in simple elegance, a detail not lost on Angela of Angyono Custom Cakes. Her cakes are always spectacular, and the only issue I had with this one was not being able to taste it!

The Couple

No styled wedding is complete without a gorgeous couple. Ashley and Steve were definitely that. In a gorgeous lace dress from White Swan Bridal, and a suave tuxedo from Generation Tux, Ashley and Steve wowed us all afternoon long. Bringing a beautifully polished look to their already flawless skin, Renata Lynette Makeup is certainly a wizard when it comes to hair and makeup.
