Karen & Rupert
Karen and Rupert were married on a beautiful, if slightly warm, day in late May at the Kentlands Mansion in Gaithersburg, Maryland. I actually know Rupert through a college connection, and both he and his bride are alumni of my own alma mater, the College of William & Mary. It's always nice photographing weddings for people you know, as it affords the opportunity to get to know them better, and in a way that many other friends do not. As with any other kind of photography, when the subject is open, honest with his or her emotions, and trusting of you and your mission, the pictures almost seem to take care of themselves. Both Karen and Rupert were trusting from the start, which also happens to be how they interact with one another. It's not hard to tell when two people are crazy about one another, and if the way they were looking at each other during their first dance is any indication, they'll be crazy about each other for a long time to come.
