I met Christine + Justin recently in downtown DC for a fun session running around U St. We started at Tabaq for a drink and then headed out. The weather kept threatening thunderstorms, so we were prepared to duck into the closest bar, but luckily, it never rained! I loved Christine’s dress – so colorful and fun! These two are so sweet and easy to be around – can’t wait for the wedding at Dumbarton House in September!
This was a sort of funny moment, but I loved the energy in the shot!
We headed back to Justin + Christine’s house for some photos in their gorgeous backyard with their adorable dogs!
If you’ve never been hiking at Sugarloaf Mountain in Dickerson, MD – you must go! It’s stunningly gorgeous there and so close to the DC area. Laura & Ryan, wise and worldly as they are, know all about Sugarloaf and chose this gorgeous spot for their engagment photos. After days of ominous weather forecasts, the sun came peeking out and the day was beautiful! We drove all over the mountain, stopping here and there for photos. Laura and Ryan are such sweet, fun people – you can’t help but have a good time around them. And their little poodle is just about the cutest thing you ever did see, no kidding!
We dropped by the grounds of Stronghold Mansion for a few quick shots. It’s so gorgeous there, you could spend the whole day!
I must warn you before you look at this post – prepare yourself from some extra special silliness! Andrea & Chris are really awesome people – they love to laugh and goof around and just have a really fantastic time with each other. Our session just kept on going and they never ran out of energy or delight in each other – it was so much fun!
Andrea and Chris will be getting married on New Year’s Eve in Annapolis, so we headed to the water for their engagement session and got a few fun New Year’s Eve – style shots for their Save the Dates! Can’t wait for the big day at Governer Calvert House!
I just loved this solitary moment with Andrea watching out on the traffic.
Katherine + Allen met up on a chilly fall day recently for their engagement session. They live in Virginia and the idea of an urban setting in their home state really appealed to them – and where in NoVA is more “downtown” feeling than Rosslyn? We started for a drink and then jumped all around the town. And everywhere we went, Allen had Katherine laughing hysterically – madly even! I couldn’t help but laugh along with them and the time went so fast, I couldn’t believe when the sun was already setting! Can’t wait for the wedding in April – I’ve no doubt it will be an incredibly joyful day!
