Meredith & Denis are getting married in July at the beautiful Meadowlark Gardens, so for their engagement shoot, they really wanted something with some city! Denis (the s is silent and the i sounds like “eee” – just pretend you’re French while you say it – and yes, it does sound really cool, doesn’t it!?!) lives in France (so jealous!) and came all the way over for some wedding planning and picture taking. We headed out on a really chilly, but sunny afternoon to U St and had a great time!
We started at – yes, believe it – the Love Cafe, where the cupcakes are sooo delicious! Then, we headed out down the street, braving the cold!
I love the huge colorful murals in the alley near U & 14th St…
Once Meredith & Denis were sufficiently freezing cold, we popped into this cozy little bar called Polly’s for some hot chocolate. Cici, the owner, was there and was so sweet! I think we’ll all be going back to Polly’s again sometime soon!
Nothing like some cuddling by the fire…
So, I’m sure that by now you’ve realized exactly what I did after about 5 minutes with them – Denis & Meredith are so cute together! They laugh and have such a good time – they are some of the most photogenic people ever and are so much fun to spend time around. It’s pretty clear how much they belong together!
Yes, we ran into traffic for this shot and yes, I nearly got run over by a big truck with a DC parks logo on it. But, it was definitely worth it!
Congratulations guys! I hope you had fun and I can’t wait for the wedding!
