Haley + Jack's Intimate Old Town Alexandria Elopement
Not even a chilly Friday or an extended wait (20 minutes to be exact) in a law office In Alexandria, Virginia, could dull the beauty of Haley + Jack's intimate elopement. Between laughs, sweet whispers, and Jack's subtle foot and hand-on-knee- tapping, I could tell they were both a little nervous. However, their excitement to become husband and wife was always evident. They began the afternoon meeting with an officiant, exchanging rings, and reciting vows. Then they made their way down the always busy, but exciting, King Street. Finally, in the early evening around 5pm, they ended their walk at the Old Town Waterfront Park taking a few quiet moments to love on each other and take in what happened just an hour before.
Days like Haley + Jack's wedding - where every moment is genuine and infused with true love - are what really inspires my documentary-style of wedding photography. Not a moment was missed. Even moments where it seemed like not much was going on produced incredible captures that highlighted simple and small examples of their love. They didn't have a fancy hotel or ballroom that was filled to the brim with gorgeous décor, florals, or loved ones. But, they did have each other and the resulting images are beautiful. What more do you really need?
