day five: rita and hammoud are beautiful together.


like a movie star!

hammoud gets ready.

cake designed by cake love and oh so good.

it was a cloudy day with bits and pieces of light.

paola, from italy, is such an alive person.

this was the lovely union of rita from hungary and hammoud from syria in oakton, va. i already knew rita from our yoga teacher training and just thought she was the coolest lady. then i got the privilege of photographing their small and precious ceremony the day before thanksgiving. i felt like family right away and enjoyed myself so much. on days like these, i really feel like i have the best job ever.
