Gretchen & Sean had their wedding during Winter Storm Jonas which left over 2 feet of snow along the east coast. They got ready at The Hilton in Old Town Alexandria where many of their wedding vendors and guest stayed overnight while the snow kept coming and streets became un-driveable. Many couples rescheduled there wedding due to the weather however Gretchen & Sean, their guest, venue, and all the wedding vendors were ready to have a wedding! After getting ready at The Hilton they had their ceremony and reception at The George Washington Masonic Memorial. My favorite part of the day was when we ran outside during the high winds and snow to get the shots in from of the venue! This wedding was featured on "Offbeat Bride" and "Capital Romance"
"I hired Jon for my January 23, 2016 wedding, and it was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding! In case that date doesn't mean anything to you, January 23rd was dead in the middle of Winter Storm Jonas, the blizzard that dumped 2 - 3 feet all over the DMV. Yep, on my wedding weekend (because just having a wedding isn't stressful enough withOUT a blizzard in the mix, hahahaha.) Luckily, I had Jon Fleming Photography on my side, and he was so flexible and accommodating in ensuring he'd still be there to photography my big day. We made arrangements for him to stay at the hotel near the venue for us and he basically gave up his entire weekend to ensure he could still capture every moment. He and his second photographer, Nick, took such amazing photos and I'm thrilled with how everything turned out! Of course, blizzard crisis aside, Jon just did a fantastic job with our wedding photos! He has such an eye for unique perspectives, and his ability to capture details is really incredible. He uses flashes and artificial light really well, which means you're don't have to worry about being limited if it unexpectedly rains (or, ahem, snows) on your wedding day. He is super friendly, non-obtrusive, and His communication is great too, sending very thorough contracts as well as a questionnaire before the wedding to make sure he knew all of the shots I would want. And even though I had an obnoxious amount of requests, he didn't blink an eye. He also got the photos back to me so quickly (including an awesome sneak peek the day after my wedding!) Many photographers will quote you 6 - 8 weeks to get your pictures back to you, but Jon sent all of them within 4 weeks. He's a steal too -- snap him up for your wedding, special occasion, engagement shoot, or whatever, while you still can!"
