Washington DC Church Wedding | Sarah + Dave Photography

Years ago, before I took my business (or my business took me) full time, I worked at Apple.  I have mixed emotions when I think back to my time there. But the two things I remember are to “always assume positive intent”, and that I loved the people I worked with.  Apple has figured out the secret sauce to hiring really amazing, interesting, kind, genuine people, and Jeff was a prime example of this. When we reconnected when they hired us to be their Washington DC church wedding photographers, it felt like hanging out with old friends. Jeff and Lauren met online, when he bought an awesome old firehouse that he planned on renovating into a home, and was in a new city. Lauren just so happened to be the first person he messaged, but she took several days to respond (because she was visiting a friend out of state). Lauren eventually responded and they exchanged a few lengthy emails back and forth until Lauren said, “I’ve determined that you’re probably not a serial killer, we should meet.” So they made a plan to meet that weekend in downtown Silver Spring. Five years later, they got married on the exact same weekend they first met! I love it so much! As they told me their story, and about their wedding plans, and what was important to them for their wedding day, I knew we were a great fit. These two awesome people created a wedding day at the church Lauren grew up in, that was free of all the extra stuff, and full of all the things that matter (oh, and 1,000 paper cranes that Lauren folded herself), and you could see that throughout their entire Washington DC church wedding day. It was just such a special day and everyone in attendance at their Washington DC church wedding truly cared deeply for Lauren and Jeff.  It was such an honor to witness and be a part of. I felt like we were being invited into an intimate family reunion and we loved every second of it. Lauren & Jeff- it was such a joy getting to reconnect and get to know you guys, and we are so honored that you chose us to be a part of your wedding day! Now go enjoy these photos from their absolutely perfect Washington DC church wedding!
