When you have a 2 year old puppy, you just KNOW he has to be front and center in your engagement photos. Lee and Alden decided to take a lovely fall walk around Georgetown for their engagement session! I toured them all around my favorite spots to get the ideal fall leaves and some European […]

Washington DC Engagement | District of Columbia Wedding Photographer Kir Tuben

Lauren & Greg had a vision to take portraits all around D.C. and did they ever! We started the day one of the district’s most historic hotels: The Willard. Greg and his guys snapped pictures out front while Lauren and her gals were at Cafe Du Parc. The whole gang then took a ride to Georgetown’s Chapel where these two would tie the knot followed by family formals and portraits on the lawn. The final stop was DAR Constitution Hall where their reception was flawless!

Jenna and JJ were introduced by mutual friends. They met at a concert in DC but almost like an episode of How I Met Your Mother, JJ ended up on TWO blind dates at once! He had to run up and down the flights of stairs at the club to entertain two set-ups from different groups of friends that unbeknownst to him, unintentionally fell on the same evening! What are the odds!

Union Station Engagement Session | Washington DC Wedding Photographer | Jenna and JJ

Christina and Shaun messaged me about snapping their engagement photos this summer. The two actually live in Chicago (where they got engaged) but their love story began in DC. They had their first date at Cylde’s in the district and their love story grew, eventually leading them to their life together in Illinois. Shaun proposed the day before her birthday over dinner before meeting a bunch of their close friends to celebrate.

To say I have a couple crush on these two is an understatement. David and Meaghan are the ultimate college sweethearts! These two were so natural in front of the camera, I barely had to pose them at all. Even during our rainy session on Georgetown’s campus, these two shined on camera.

I have felt super connected to this couple since day one. We had a Skype call to introduce ourselves and, almost immediately, we were introducing each other to our cats! Morgan and Jeff met at trivia and are the sweetest couple you’ll ever hope to meet. They are both so authentic and genuine that they completely embody my motto of being ‘true, original sweethearts’. Their wedding planning, just like their relationship, seems so honest to who they are; they’re even getting vegan treats for their dessert!

Oh man do I have a soft spot for this couple! Not only do I appreciate a man who plans to have a photographer capture the most important question of his life but I also have a tendency to adore sarcasm. Given those two facts, Raumil was the perfect client. This couple was a dream to photograph and I was able to do so alongside my dear photographer friend Marirosa! Best. Day. Ever.
