Hello New York! We're very happy to hear that NY is now among the States that legalized same sex marriage. As Eleven Hearts Photography we've always believed and supported love in all its forms. Since March 2010 we've been capturing those precious moments here in Washington DC, now it's your turn New York!
Welcome! What took you so long?
We always worked with the best wedding album companies like Leather Craftsman, Graphie Studio, Quensbery, Couture, Cypres and more. We believe that a professionally designed wedding album is the best way to preserve and showcase your wedding pictures. Thinking of digital age and overwhelming social media existence, sharing your most intimide moments on a screen should not be the only way to go. Sure, it takes time to design, print, and bind a wedding album but it's future proof. We work with the best companies all over the world, and each and every wedding album professionally printed and bound in a beautiful linen or leather volume. If you have a CD of your wedding pictures, and want an album designed it is still here are tons of different options Just send me a note and we’ll send you the rates.
We would like to talk about a wonderful custom Presentation Box that Cyprus just created for photographers. Two of the slip-in cases on the left side of the box have velvet jewelry holders. There is a removable mat for a print that is magnetically held into the box. They also created a custom envelope out of fabric that slips under the tray and is easily removed with the ribbon.
As you can see the possibilities are endless! It's great to have everything from the wedding day all perfectly stored in an Heirloom Presentation Box.
We love it!
If so, we might have found a place for you that is truly vintage. The River Farm is an historic home built in the 1800′s and conveniently close to the Washington DC metro area.

Harry Houdini and lived in the mansion during his short career with the fledging movie industry in the 1920’s. The house, on Laurel Canyon that was rented by Harry Houdini for roughly one year around 1919. While he lived in the house, it became a frequent host to strange experiments and more...They say the lot on Laurel Canyon for many years had stone and cement ruins of a large house, and these ruins were often referred to as the "haunted" Houdini. Well, the good news was Jim Morrison was in the neighborhood around 1970's. He lived in a house behind. He was one of the many rocks stars who made Laurel Canyon their home in the 60's and 70's. Today, the house open to public to host events like weddings. It was a nice surprise to see Amber showing her Tattoo to prove that how brave she is to pick Houdini's so called Haunted Place.
We love fun, personalized details in a wedding. When you can look at a wedding and see that couple’s personality splashed all over different aspects of the day. Well, Goknur Olguner (Gigi) from Eleven Hearts Photography… loves to create and shoot customized details. Knowledge that a wedding is a lifelong commitment to celebrate with friends, she has created a wedding collection filled with thoughtful, shots of the wedding day. Greg is a chef at very fancy restaurant. Including simple pepper and salt shakers, which may be the cutest darn things we’ve seen in a while! The only thing better than wearing your ring for the first time is to see them posing next to salt bottle while you get ready for your big day. This image taken at the wedding of Lauren Lovejoy and Greg Dan.
I shot many destination weddings last month. I love travelling a lot and this one is from Istanbul, Turkey. Fethi and Ozlem Kaleli put together the awesome event and shared their vows in front of 500 people. That seems like is an average number for typical Turkish wedding. They got married at “Büyük Kulüp” in Istanbul.
When a couple makes the conscious decision to take their relationship to the next level, the question of love, faith and trust comes to the surface. To ask for someone’s hand in marriage may quite frankly be one of the most important questions a man or woman will ask in their lifetime. With a simple response of “I accept" or "yes” the duo steps into the next phase of their union, the engagement era. And what better way to present this engagement to the world than with photographs. To celebrate this landmark occasion in their lives together, Lindsey and Adam spent a day in District of Columbia’s National Mall, surrounded by the historical monuments of America’s fore fathers, the two frolicked, smooched and just simply spent time together. And you can beat your top dollar: Eleven Hearts was there to capture every moment.
With her signature style, Goknur Olguner shot some of the session using a 70-200 mm Tele Zoom lens. To document moments of this sublime day, Goknur likes to use the lens to highlight panoramic views of places such as the Lincoln Memorial.
The National Mall was a perfect choice for the photo shoot because it symbolizes not only National pride but North American as a whole. Being that Lindsey is Canadian and Adam is from the States, the mall represents American unity at its finest.
I had a such a fantastic shooting at Glen Echo Park in DC last Saturday, despite the weather being so hot. Holly and Kerron were so relaxed and great to work with, I came out with some great shots, thank you guys.

Hi everybody, Slacking a little on my blog post lately, and in general, back to back weddings are taking its toll, but...from now I will try to post every day...see how that goes. Wish me luck. This image is from Emilia Sin and Peter Padiotis's St. Katherine’s Greek Orthodox Church Wedding. I shot that image from a small stair behind the mezzanine with my 15mm f1.2 lens. I run back to aisle to catch the first kiss right before they were announced husband and wife for the first time.
