When I first spoke to Inna & Gabe back in January, I was extremely excited about the opportunity to capture their wedding in Georgetown. Not only would I be creating a film for them, but also documenting their day in images. If it sounds like a challenge, it definitely is, but I could not be more proud of what we were able to capture. Inna & I talked several times before their wedding and we had the timeline down to the exact minute. One of the best things about doing photo & video, is that I had so much more influence over the timeline and how everything should run. I also love that they want an amazing film first and then photos, which is super rare. I brought in an amazing crew that included Kurt Baier, Paul Hairston, and Greg Gooden to help me document the day, and I could not have been happier with how well it worked. I served as more of the director and switched between photo & video on certain shots I specialize in, while the rest of the crew covered other sections. We also made the decision to shoot as much of the photography on analog film as possible to emphasis the pink dress and beautiful textures in Georgetown, which was perfect for this wedding. The preps & reception took place at the Four Seasons Georgetown in Washington D.C, while the ceremony was in the heart of D.C at the gorgeous Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. After the ceremony, we headed to Lafayette Square for a few images, and then the locks in Georgetown, which provided a gorgeous backdrop. Throughout the day we really tried to emphasis the coming together of Jewish, Russian, Armenian, and South American traditions. This also made for some pretty amazing dancing at the reception (I love the hora). DJ Brennan Sullivan of Bialek’s Music got the party started and everyone danced into the night. I really hope you enjoy the film and images below!! Thank you Inna & Gabe for trusting us to capture such an amazing event.
