Intimate Wedding in Georgetown, DC - Josiah & Steph Photography

Joey + Janki

It may not have been the wedding they were planning, but Joey + Janki decided to have a beautiful family only ceremony in Potomac, Maryland last week. Before their ceremony, we met up with them for their first look and portraits in Georgetown. We hopped to a few different spots around town. We went to the University, the C&O Canal, and the Alexandria Aqueduct ruins that overlooked the river. It was actually a great tour around the area! It’s definitely a cute little town we want to return to once the pandemic is over and done with.

I’m so happy to say that despite COVID interrupting their big plans for a wedding this year, they still got married. I can’t stress this enough, but you don’t get engaged to have a wedding. Well, at least that shouldn’t be your primary motivation. You get engaged to get married! The marriage is the important part and it’s the aspect that can’t get overlooked. The pandemic forces couples to simplify and there is actually a beauty in the simplification of the wedding day. It’s no longer about the guests or the details or how good the food may or may not be. Instead it is all about the couple. The simplicity of Joey + Janki’s wedding day meant they could focus entirely on one another without the overwhelm of everything that normally happens at the wedding. And that’s exactly what they did.

These two are both so sweet and fun to be around. We are so thankful for Janki’s brother, too, who was our dedicated chauffeur. We all crammed into his car to go all over Georgetown for portraits. Joey + Janki were so, so, so easy to work with. They’re also freakin’ models! That was a huge plus as every picture you take of them is just pure gold. More importantly, the joy between them is tangible and each photo radiates the warmth and love they both share. Working with them has been a highlight of 2020, for sure!

To Joey + Janki:

Thanks so much for trusting us with your photos and for sticking with us through all this craziness. We are so grateful for you both and hopefully next year we’ll get the chance to celebrate with you again with all your friends and family, if you decide to do that. But until then, we hope you enjoy some of our favorites from your wedding day!
