I swear I'm not getting a commission

Speaking of photography, as I was earlier, I have four, count 'em, four friends getting married this year (oy, my poor Amex). Anyway, today I was reading an online chat with one of my favorite Washington Post columnists, Gene Weingarten, and, in an aside, he mentioned he had been contacted by a woman, the sister of someone he had previously written about, who had emailed to tell him she liked the article about her brother. Weingarten threw her a plug, noting she's a photographer, and said to check out her work to see wedding photography like you've never seen before.

So, dutiful loser with way too much time on my hands that I am, I clicked over to her site, and, sure enough, there's some really unusual work there. Click on “Wedding Showcase” (at the top of the page) and then hit Next (at the bottom) to see a brief portfolio. And, at about 10 pix in, there's a great photo of a bride and her dog that's incredibly touching. Maybe it's just my love of dogs kicking in, but the “bye old friend” look on each of their faces is wonderful. The “Featured Couple,” section, in the tab next to Wedding Showcase, is pretty good too. Anyway, it's not the usual couple-standing-in-front-of-the-ice-sculpture stuff.

She's based in the Washington D.C. area, so none of my friends would be using her anyway, but all you potential brides in that region may want to keep her in mind.
