They wanted to spend a few hours with their closest friends. Bride, groom, and bridal party portraits for the wedding they wouldn't have. Not here, anyway. In just a few short days, Jeff and Kun are headed to Hawaii to exchange their vows in an intimate ceremony. And since the friends who would have stood at their sides are unable to make the journey, they spent the day together in celebration, and I was honored to document this time for them.
We started at River Farm in Alexandria. Its gardens are oh-so-beautiful, and the wisteria here was soft and romantic.
We then headed to Old Town Alexandria for a few more photos....
...before we headed to Columbia Firehouse for a late lunch, where everyone was famished from a long day of shooting.
Jeff and Kun, I had a wonderful time getting to know you and your friends, and I wish you all the best as you travel to Hawaii and commit your lives to each other!
