Kat & James – Roosevelt Island Elopement

May 20, 2013

Arington, VA is home to one cute little Irish pub – O’Sullivan’s. While they do have fun live music, trivia night and great beer, they also have very little space. So naturally when two big groups of people are there – especially when one is a bunch of cute ladies at a birthday party – the groups will start chatting, buying each other rounds, and hanging out the rest of the night. From one fateful night in a bar a few years back, came this awesome, take on the world type, beautiful couple (and their super cute pup, Banks). I was super happy to be able to take photos of these two lovebirds before they made their way to the courthouse on their bikes for their ceremony. We made our way to Roosevelt Island which sits in the middle of the Potomac. A truly amazing place for photos – I can’t wait to go back! ๐Ÿ™‚

Banks got all dressed up for the occasion!

I feel like this one needs to be on a wall somewhere. So pretty.

    Dani I’ve said it before. Your outdoor photography is pure genius. So excited that you are doing My niece Katie’s wedding next year. What a vote of confidence from the Cowan family. Love you smillions.

    I love how he picks her up like it’s completely effortless. My faves are the ones where she’s standing behind him on the dock wrapping her arms around him….how he looks back at her… ๐Ÿ™‚
