Tim and Kia met the summer of 2005 in the beautiful “Sunshine State”.  It was Kia’s first week after relocating from Fairfax Station, Virginia to Jacksonville, Florida. A mutual friend introduced them at a Jacksonville Jaguars NFL Party. After the introduction, they soon realized that they certainly had one thing in common which was their employer, Johnson & Johnson, Vision Care. They enjoyed their brief chat and went about enjoying the party.  Kia’s thought before the night ended, “I hope we see each other again”. As fate would have it, a few weeks later, they ran into each other at the local mall.  Once again,they enjoyed a chat, much longer than before and realized that they had several things in common. To Kia’s surprise, Monday morning as she opened her email at work, the first message was from Tim asking her out to lunch. Their first lunch was great and they had many more wonderful dates.  The more time they spent together, the more they enjoyed each other’s company. Their friendship and relationship grew strong over the years, and so as their love for each other. On November 20, 2012, Tim visited Kia in Washington, DC for Thanksgiving.   Little did she know, he had much more in store than just a visit.  Several weeks prior, he had asked her parents for her hand in marriage.  He had spent weeks planning with the W Hotel staff an elaborate engagement event.  While overlooking the White House and Washington Monument from the W Rooftop, Tim proposed on one knee and Kia did a happy dance and said, “YES”.

In A beautiful sunny day on August 10, Kia and Tim eloped at the beautiful W Hotel in DC



I knew the day would be just perfect as soon as I saw Kia’s gorgeous face

SHE* IS* STUNNING inside and out


Then it was Tim and the guys’ time to shine in front of our camera….


Kia and Tim opted to see each other before the ceremony. They chose to see each other as bride and groom at the exact same room where Tim proposed to Kia {hashtag #howromanticisthat? }, and as you can imagine, internet, there were lots of lots of tears of joy:)


These series of images below are the reason I LOVE my job

The ceremony was emotional as well

and they were married

so we went to have some fun shots with their friends….

The receptions at the W Hotel are always stunningly elegant, rich in color, full of class

So just to give you an idea how awesome Kia and Tim are…Michelle Obama, aka first lady, wrote them a personal letter congratulating them on their union. Ok internet, how awesome is that???

I love when my clients incorporate images from their engagement session in their wedding. Kia and Tim actually used an image from their session on their wedding favor’s boxes below and it came out so beautiful.

and of course, as always, I took some night shots of the couples inside the hotel and outside


Kia and Tim, I count myself lucky to have the chance to document your love on your wedding day. I hope you are having the time of your life in Hawaii, and I can’t wait to come and visit you in FL to document {Kia, I promised to your mom} your future little ones.

    progressive auto madison wi - Eine Uebernahme der Wasserstrassen durch die Gemeinde wäre zu begrüssen. Voraussetzung dafür wäre allerdings, dass die Grundsteuer nicht nur für die Verwaltung, sondern auch für den Unterhalt und die Pflege der Kanäle dienen sollte. Ausserdem ist ein klares “Statement” seitens der Gemeinde, des Konzessionärs und des Staates überfällig, welches dem Liegeplatzbesitzer versichert, dass der Liegeplatz sein Eigentum bleibt und demzufolge verkäuflich und vererbbar ist.ReplyCancel

    growtopia - gaetan () / L'attitude du Nofollow c'est simplement de la fainéantise… et ne pas avoir à vérifier le contenu spammé ou non d'un commentaire. Donc logique (en quelque sorte) pour les gros sites ou blogs. Même si cela reste contre-nature au regard de ce qu'est (ou était ?) le web.Par contre, si on fait du Dofollow, il faut savoir aussi faire un peu le ménage de temps à autre. C'est le revers de la médaille.ReplyCancel
