DC \\ New Places

Derks Works Washington DC Wedding Photography20130511-001

Visiting DC was a wonderful experience and a whirlwind of a weekend. Having never had my “eighth grade trip” or seen the sights of DC, I was thrilled to accompany Benjamin  for the weekend to photograph two amazing couples. We made the most of our 48 hour trip, seeing the statues, tasting amazing food and finding the local treasures of DC. I tried to temper my first time excitement and blend into the city while soaking up the details. However, my over excited tourist heart definitely came out as I was constantly taking and posting pictures (check out my instagram if you don’t believe me). I look forward to visiting DC in the future, to enjoy even more fabulous restaurants, historical land marks and museums. Please enjoy some of our favorite sites and images below!

It was an honor to visit the WWII memorial and remember the brave men and women who fought fearlessly.

Spending time with Jenni + Sumit was absolutely delightful! We not only enjoyed making beautiful images but we also earned an amazing discount on some froyo in the 14th street corridor! See Jenni + Sumit’s engagement post here.

I love watching Benjamin as he works with clients. He is an amazing artist and captures such a beautiful, personal and unique story with each couple.

DC \\ ONE FRAME #2

DerksWorks20130427-001

April, 2013 \\ Washington, DC \\ The more I look at this frame the more I love the variety of experiences it expresses. Some people come to walk around, to congregate, some for exercise, for a place to read, some to pay their respects, some to stand at attention one last time, to remember.

    Absolutely love the photos! You both look so good and so happy – makes me feel happy! Hope every day of your life together makes you feel this good! Love you a lot! AS

    The first and last ones are special! (Not implying that the rest aren’t, just that those stick out to me the most.)

  2. Susie

    Love all of the doors and gates. It’s so symbolic. I can’t wait to meet you at the wedding!

    Love Love Love!
