Washington DC Love Shoot

Categories Real Weddings + Wedding Stationery

When Dianne and John first arrived in our nation’s capital for their scheduled shoot, they were a little disappointed to find that due to chilly spring weather, most of the cherry trees weren’t in full bloom. But photographer, Eric Llanes and his staff did not let this little deterrence inhibit their vision in any way. Dianne and John’s Washington DC shoot is sweet, fun and interesting–and the amount of fun they’re having, definitely shows on their faces. Dianne said, “Eric and his photographers used their creativity and decided to photograph us at the nearby Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial. Our trust was immediately gained with their decision and we instantly knew the shoot was going to be even better than anticipated.” Enjoy!

Wedding Colors: Deep Purple, Silver, and (Breast Cancer) Pink accents…..
Engagement Shoot Locations:  Washington DC {along the Potomac River and at The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial}

Dianne and John personalized Sketched in Love Save the Date Magnet design and Sketched in Love Carrier Card.

Dianne had this to say about their non-traditional fall-themed Save the Date, “Our wedding is in the fall, our favorite time of the year. We wanted a fall wedding but we’re not into the reds and oranges. We love them on the trees but that’s pretty much it. So we decided to go with deep purple, which is fall-like but modern at the same time when mixed with silver. We’re also breast cancer advocates–as we both have family members who have been affected by it. And so in honor and celebration of October’s breast cancer awareness month, we accented our save the date with pink.”

Pro Shout Out

Eric Llanes Photography
Not only are they fun and easy-going professionals, they are very talented photographers that possess a good eye and vision for every photograph they captured. Their open and comical personalities allowed my fiancé and me to relax and feel comfortable for the duration of our session. Their amazing talent was evident, as Eric and his staff used their exceptional imagination and originality in every photograph. Furthermore, their patience and tireless effort was on display throughout the whole session, as they spent the majority of the day photographing us in different settings along the Tidal Basin, Potomac River and even in parts of nearby Arlington, VA.

My fiancé and I are very pleased and grateful for the job that Eric Llanes Photography did with our engagement photo session.  As our wedding date quickly approaches, we are very excited and looking forward to working with them again for our ceremony, reception and other related events leading up to our big day. We have great confidence in Eric and his staff to produce the same results as our engagement photo session. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Eric Llanes Photography.

MagnetStreet Weddings
While there were many companies out there who offered to make magnets, I was very glad that I chose to go with MagnetStreet. I received nothing but excellent customer service during the entire process of making our save the dates. All of my questions were answered promptly and many agents were willing to offer advice in order to make my vision a reality. I went through several drafts before the final product was finalized and MagnetStreet was very patient in working with me. The online personalization tools was easy to use and really allowed me to customize our save the dates. I really appreciated that I could order a “personalized sample” prior to ordering in bulk. It was comforting to know that I can actually see the product in my hands before committing to a large order. I also valued the fact that despite the many samples I had to go through before I made a bulk order, I was able to credit what I spent on the samples towards my bulk order. Overall, I am very impressed with MagnetStreet and will continue to use them in the future.

Thanks so much for all the kind words Dianne and thanks also for sharing your day with us! We wish you all the best!

    What a sweet and thoughtful idea to incorporate pink into their color scheme for breast cancer month/awareness (October wedding). Love that. What a cute couple, too…their smiles are infectious!
