Chalise and Ryan- Washington Wedding Photographer

Chalise and Ryan were married this past Saturday in what was one of the most gorgeous fall days any bride could hope for when planning a wedding! I loved their wedding for many reasons but especially because they got married in the same church that my husband and I got married in about 4 years ago. On top of the beautiful day and pretty church, Chalise stunned in an amazing lace wedding gown! Congratulations, Chalise and Ryan! Here’s a peek at your photos. Enjoy!

The church <3

After the ceremony, they had a balloon release as they walked out of the church.  I’d never seen that before but I automatically loved it!The clouds came over at just the right time for the balloons! Our photos took place at just the right time of day to get gorgeous sunflare to work with! This is my personal favorite photo of the day.
 We were blessed with wonderful weather and picturesque scenery. It almost looks too pretty to be real.I wanted to get some beauty shots of the bride, like in the above photo, but Chalise’s dress fit so perfectly that it made it difficult to squat for more than a few seconds. Luckily, Ryan stepped up and lent her his knee. I love how he is gazing at her. Shot by Ashley.
This shot by Ashley…And this one by me. Don’t you love how the sun setting behind them is giving a little glow to them as they walk?

Faked some wind. Lost the veil. Love the result.

Congratulations, Chalise and Ryan! Thanks for having us as part of your day!
