Cristy and Adam’s Wedding | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer

On February 17, 2013, I was fortunate enough to assist John Frank in photographing Cristy and Adam’s winter wedding in Washington, D.C. After Adam saw Cristy for the first time in her stunning dress (one of the prettiest I’ve ever seen!) at the Ritz-Carlton in Georgetown, we made our way to Union Station for some formal bridal party portraits. They all looked amazing, and without doing a weather report for the day, you’d never know by looking at them that it was in the 30s with extremely cold wind! After some photos, Cristy and Adam were married at the Sequoia in Georgetown, right on the waterfront. Some favorite photos from the day…

Newlywed Couples needed for Market Research in the Wedding Photography Industry

Hi friends! I am a student in Boston University’s Center for Digital Imaging Arts and I am conducting a survey for market research purposes. The purpose of the survey is to evaluate the wedding photography industry from recent brides. If you or someone you know has been married within the past three years, I need your help! This survey is comprised of 17 questions and should take you less than 15 minutes to complete. All you have to do is cut and paste the below questionnaire into your email and send it directly to me at jess@jessicaveltri.com. Even if you aren’t a new bride, you can still help out by forwarding this to a friend or family member who is!

All answers are confidential; your personal information will not be shared.

As an added bonus and a thank you for your time, if I receive 20 responses by Saturday, November 24, 2012, I will hold a drawing for your choice of an 8X12 matted print from my Travel Collection (A $55 dollar value). You can still participate in the drawing even if you’re not a newlywed! Forward this survey and then email me with the name of the friend that you referred. Once your friend completes the survey, both of your names will be added to the drawing! Thank you so much for your help and good luck!
