Alesha & Patrick – wedding – Rockville, Maryland

The wedding toasts at Alesha and Patrick’s wedding were a lovely glimpse by their family, into who Alesha and Patrick are, and how they are as a couple. Alesha’s sister, the maid of honor, mentioned how she wasn’t quite sure about Patrick initially … until some day when she heard Patrick address Alesha by a sweet  endearment, and then she knew, they really are in love.

It was clear on the day that Alesha and Patrick adored each other, and I think this shows in the photographs here of them as a couple. More than that, the entire day felt like a celebration, just as it should be.

About the photographs – after the ceremony we went to Glenview Mansion (Rockville, MD) for the family and bridal party photographs. Beautifully scenic as a backdrop. From there we went to the reception which was held at the Visarts building. The area has a busy night-life, so later in the evening we took some romantic portraits out on the street. I loved the way the colors came out! Vibrant.

As an aside, I photographed Alesha’s sister’s wedding about a year before – Aluanda & Clarence, wedding day at Oxon Hill Manor, MD

Here is Alesha and Patrick, and some of the wonderful people who shared their wedding day.

Awesome as always Neil! Just a couple of questions for you.

1- in the 2nd pic, there’s a light in the upper right corner. Is that a video light that you were using?

2- What kind, of modifier(s) do you use for group shots like with the wedding party?
