A Perfect Wedding at the Ft. Belvoir Officers Club

It’s hard to believe that I photographed my first wedding reception at the Ft. Belvoir Officers Club which overlooks the Potomac River,  way back in 1979, 35 years ago!  I was just starting out.  Here we are 3,200 weddings later!  Lately at… FBOC I’ve had weddings where it always seem to rain but Carolyn and Rob’s wedding last week had perfect weather.  In fact, I think it was a perfect wedding!  A few of the photos from the reception here….   Click on thumbnails to enlarge.  Learn more about us on our website at www.philipkent.com.

Photographing Weddings in the Rain… Again!

It seems like we have photographed quite a few weddings this past year on rainy days.  Emily and Jeff’s wedding last Saturday in Old Town Alexandria and the Ft. Belvoir Officers Club presented a few challenges that were overcome with plenty of enthusiasm… and umbrellas!

Nice thing about a rainy day is the softness of the lighting.  Here are a couple of nice portraits of Emily and Jeff under an umbrella or outside the front door of the club but protected under a portico while it’s raining heavily.  No extra lighting used, just the natural light there.

The Beautiful Army Navy Country Club in Arlington

Here are a few photographs from the beautiful new (new a year and a half ago) Army Navy Country Club in Arlington, VA.  Rebecca and Michael’s wedding there recently had over 200 people, a 10-piece band and more fun than one can imagine.  Click on any of the photographs to enlarge.  See our website at philipkent.com for more information on our services!


A Fun Reception at the Springfield Golf & Country Club

Valerie and Nick’s recent reception at the Springfield Country Club was a blast.  Following a catholic ceremony at the Church of the Nativity in Burke, a series of outdoor photos were taken on the putting green just outside the ballroom.  Then a fun reception got underway after the introductions of the wedding party which was an event in itself!   Click on each image to enlarge.

The Spectacular NEW Army-Navy Country Club

Open less than a year, the NEW Army-Navy Country Club in Arlington is a spectacular addition to northern Virginia’s wealth of beautiful wedding venues.  The facility is first-class with dramatic stairwells, ballrooms and a huge outdoor patio area with unique views of Washington.  Shannon and Jack’s wedding there recently was a great pleasure to photograph in such a setting.  Here are just a few of the hundreds of great images that were created.  Click on any of the images to enlarge.

Another Great Reception at the Belmont Country Club in Ashburn

We have photographed many  beautiful weddings and receptions at the Belmont Country Club in Ashburn in recent years.  Mary and Stephen’s recent reception there was no exception.  A few sprinkles of rain didn’t even stop their enthusiasm for some outdoor photos!  Also see the stunning new St. John’s Church in Leesburg where they had their ceremony.  A few of the photos are shown here.  Click on the thumbnails to enlarge.  Please visit our website for further information on our photography!


A Walk in the Vineyard…Running Hare Vineyard

I knew that photographing Stephanie and Michael in their favorite vineyard would be a lot of fun.   They wanted to walk the grounds and create a nice series of portraits that would reflect their love of the place–and themselves.  Their recent reception at Running Hare Vineyards near Prince Frederick in Southern Maryland provided the perfect setting!

From a Pizza Parlor to Waterford Receptions

“You want you engagement portraits in a PIZZA Parlor?” I asked.  “That’s where we got engaged”.  Of course.  That was the start of a great relationship with Keri and Jake, whose wedding I photographed recently.  After a wonderful ceremony at a little country chapel in Prince William County, Va., they had an exciting and fun reception at the beautiful Waterford Receptions in Springfield, Va.  For more information on our Award-Winning Wedding Photography and studio, see our website at philipkent.com.

Marriott’s Westfields Conference Center…Michele & Andrew’s Wedding

Here are a few wedding album pages from Michele & Andrew’s recent wedding at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Fairfax and their reception at Westfield’s in Chantilly.  After a little rain slowed things down at the church things dried out and we did some beautiful photos on the grounds at Westfields.  Known for years as a large, elegant reception facility with multiple large ballrooms, Michele and Andrew’s reception was held in the beautiful upstairs promenade, not normally used for receptions but as a restaurant.

They chose one of our Leather Craftsmen leather-bound albums with a very contemporary design and layout which some couples prefer as opposed to our very popular traditional matted albums.

A few of the page spreads are shown here…just click on them to enlarge!






St. Leo’s in Fairfax & the Landsdowne Resort

Malia and Jeff’s recent wedding at St. Leo’s Catholic church in Fairfax and the Landsdowne resort in Ashburn was quite an event.  The rambuncious wedding party had some recent Virginia Tech graduates (including the bride) and the reception offered quite a opportunity for some great photographs.  See a few of them here.   Also, visit our website at www.philipkent.com.
