It had been a long time since I'd photographed a wedding at Oxon Hill Manor. Long one of my favorite sites, a nasty fire many years back kept it closed for many years. It was good to be back.
More than that, it was good to be back with a bride like Staci Greenbaum, who married Misha Neff. Staci is a costume designer by trade and only a costume designer could have seen the full Downton Abbey-ish potential for a wedding at Oxon Hill.
Of course, at first I thought Staci was marrying her best friend, Carly. Back in summer, the two of them came in to the studio and didn't stop laughing for two hours. I thought they might have been twins. Laughter is always a good barometer of potential clients and it didn't fail me in this case. They laughed as much on the wedding day.
