Catie and Scott planned an intimate indoor wedding at the Hay Adams Hotel in the late fall. Just before the ceremony got started they stole away upstairs with their immediate family, witnesses and rabbi as they signed their ketubah. From that point they were officially married - and giddy.

It was a lot of fun to be around them. Catie laughs a lot and she and Scott kissed more than almost anyone I’ve photographed before. It was great! They’d laugh a bit, kiss a bit, laugh some more, and all was right with the world.

Before the ceremony we ventured across H Street to Lafayette Park for some family portraits and some alone time for the bride and groom. The leaves were glowing in the afternoon sun an amber hue and had thankfully hung on to their branches long enough to give us a nice backdrop on a beautiful November day. The rest of the day just flowed naturally.
