To be the first to photograph the wedding of a truly wonderful couple at a newly renovated historic DC venue is a once in a lifetime opportunity. The Watergate Hotel Wedding venue is a photographer’s dream! We were so fortunate to have an amazing couple and staff to design a once in a lifetime event. I met the bride, Laura, at Alexis and Noah’s wedding several years ago, which made it a joy to see so many familiar faces! The guest list spanned the globe and the groom’s family and friends traveled all the way from Finland. Michael and the Watergate Hotel went above and beyond to make the evening absolutely spectacular. I was honored to work alongside so many exquisite professionals.

The Next Whiskey Bar inside The Watergate Hotel is the perfect setting for portraits with the groom and his best mates.
