His And Her Photography - Washington DC Wedding Photographer

Janelle and Bryan had a beautiful wedding celebration over Labor Day weekend at The W Hotel in downtown Washington, DC – just around the corner from the White House and Lafayette Square. Earlier in the Spring, I had the pleasure of getting to know Janelle and Bryan during an engagement photo shoot at the Tidal Basin near the National Mall in Washington. Here’s an image from our engagement shoot:

On Janelle and Bryan’s wedding day, I was assisted by second photographer – Alexis Glenn – and a special thanks to Alexis for her excellent work! We began photographing early in the day. We met Janelle and Bryan at the W hotel and documented them getting ready with family and friends. Janelle and her bridesmaids had a suite at the hotel where the talented and convivial Renny Vasquez provided makeup artistry.

The wedding ceremony and reception were both at the W Hotel and here are a collection of images from their story:

  1. Friends & Fam ~
    We are truly, truly blessed! Thanks for visiting our wedding blog, and if you have a moment please leave a post. We’d LOVE to hear from you. On our special day, God was definitely in the midst and we can’t say “thank you” enough for the outpouring of love & well wishes!

    Not only were we surrounded with love, but we had FUN, FUN, FUN! Our wedding day “chucks” definitely came in handy. So, for anyone who attended that has a nomination for someone who really showcased their “dancing skillz” on 9/3, please let us know. There will be a grand prize winner announced on Christmas Day. Stay tuned…

    With a heart full of joy,
    Janelle
