Sheila and David January 23, 2010 – Cosmos Club Washington DC

Sheila and David were married in the same church Sheila’s parents were married in and held their reception at the beautiful Cosmos Club in Washington DC.  Their special request of me as their photographer was to focus on the guests!  There was little to no photography during the ceremony and they wanted to enjoy the cocktail reception. So, we held an abbreviated formal photo session right before dinner.  Sheila’s mom Susan sent me an email right after the wedding to say “the way in which you organized us and ran through the formal photos was quite remarkable!….with grace, humor and super efficiency.”  She also went on to comment on our sleek black attire and my balletic movements while photographing.  Funny thing is, my first love was ballet and until I gave it up to go into photography, I was studying in NYC to become a ballerina!  Even though our focus was on the guests, I was still able to get some wonderful moments of Sheila and David.

Heath Allen’s band also traveled from Philadelphia to DC for the wedding and provided some wonderful music to dance to.

Enjoy the slideshow below.  The toasts were quite humorous as you can tell from the guests laughter and I enjoyed hearing about Sheila’s career as an FBI agent and David’s athletic abilities!
