Weddings & Portraits :: Washington DC
Lauren + David | Top of the Town Wedding

I’ve been looking forward to Lauren & David’s wedding ever since I drove 3 hours to shoot their engagement session at David’s Parents’ house on Tilghman Island, where we were treated to not only a gorgeous sunset, but a harvest moon to top it off. Not to mention how much fun we had trespassing on some private property in search of the perfect tree to use as a backdrop for some fun silhouette shots. Even though we didn’t get any sun, but rather a constant drizzle the entire day of the wedding, we managed to get some bridal party shots at both the Lincoln Memorial and the Capitol, all while being mobbed by roving gangs of tourists. With the wedding reception being held at the gorgeous Top of the Town in Arlington, we even got some dramatic rainy portraits of just Lauren & David out on the balcony at night.

This was just an all around awesome wedding and I’m thankful to Lauren & David for letting me be a part of it :)

  • Beautiful wedding, love the group shots! And I see that the rain had no impact on the mood too! :)

  • Gorgeous work Leo! You really told their wedding beautifully, and the back lit shots in the rain are phenomenal!

  • Great wedding and photos! Love the kiss shot in the park with the wedding party around them!

  • Beautiful work, Leo. The rain shots are sooo beautiful, and I also really love the group shots here. My favorite (besides the rain portraits) might be the one of the couple kissing on the sidewalk while their friends look on. Very nice all around.

  • Love that silhouette shot with the tree branch! Great job with the rain!

  • Wow…that last shot is breathtaking!

  • Nick:

    Loving your black and whites, Leo. Some great moments captured.

  • really dig those last few night portraits.

  • The night portraits are beautiful.

  • Lauren Cheplen McEvoy:

    Leo – these are just absolutely stunning! I am obsessed with them and pretty much look at them every day. You truly captured my vision for wedding photos in a more amazing way than I could have ever imagined them. I really enjoyed working with you and would recommend you to anyone!

  • Lynne Cheplen:

    Leo, an absolute delight working with you and the photos are beyond my wildest dreams…My two favs are the b/w of Lauren just after the wedding and another b/w of Lauren/Dave in the van driving to the DC sites for pix.
    Thx again for all you did for us . A very happy Mother of the Bride !!

  • I just can’t stop staring at your back lit shots in the rain…. it is very lovely and stunning….. PERFECT!!!
