It was a beautiful summer day in Washington, D.C., and I was excited to photograph my first Russian Orthodox Church wedding. As I arrived at the church, the stunning architectural details and the domed roof greeted me, setting the stage for a picturesque ceremony.
Inside the church, the air was filled with the soft fragrance of incense, and the walls adorned with intricate religious icons added to the sacred atmosphere.
The ceremony began with the ancient and ceremonial rituals of the Orthodox Church. I carefully moved around the sanctuary capturing some candid moments.
After the ceremony, we moved to the National Cathedral for formal portraits with the newlyweds and their families.
Immersed in the rich traditions of the Russian Orthodox Church, made it an unforgettable experience. The combination of spiritual significance and cultural elements made this wedding truly unique, and I felt privileged to document every moment. Here are some gorgeous wedding photos at the Russian Orthodox Church.
