We had to reschedule this session twice but it was all worth it for this lovely weather and sunrise views! Alexa and Jared wanted something classic DC and romantic garden so there was no better place than Jefferson and Tudor place. We hit the very end of fall for autumn colors! Cannot wait for their […]

“Betsy & Beau” sound like a pair from a made up romance novel but here they are in the flesh… just an unbelievably good looking as you imagine their fictional counterparts to be 🤍 I could photograph you both for hours, days, years! Thanks for catching sunrise with me kids.

Hard to believe these two were at all nervous before their engagement session! I met Casey through a high school friend! Small world! And now, I get to be the one to capture their District Winery wedding this spring! Here are my favorite images from their sunrise DC engagement session. Cannot wait for wedding day!

I think proposals are my all time favorite thing to photograph! I get to play secret agent for a day and play tourist- hiding in plain sight. Matt and Lucy flew in for a quick romantic trip to DC. Little did she know, Lucy would leave the city engaged! Congrats to this happy couple on […]

Lincoln Memorial Proposal | DC Proposal Ideas | Matt and Lucy

What is more romantic than a surprise proposal? Jae proposed to Julia on a rainy afternoon in the city. We talked about proposing at Meadowlark but with the rain, Jefferson was the best possible rain plan! A quiet afternoon at the national mall made for a super intimate setting in the district. Congrats to the […]

Lily and Ben are two of my all-time favorite clients! When I had to pick models for a mentoring session, they were the first couple I thought of! I actually shot their wedding during the pandemic but we never did an official engagement together so this was the perfect excuse to get together again and […]

It’s evenings like this one that make me believe in love. Jessica and Bryant eloped on the national mall on a Wednesday. With the pandemic in full swing, they decided to make private vows to one another and self-officiate at the DC War Memorial. We took a handful of portraits at Lincoln before walking to […]

I just love when a gal has a signature color. Rachael showed up in this stunner and I knew it had to be a thing. She even has a green engagement ring! She’s basically a real life Elle Woods but subbing out green for pink. These two got super lucky with the cherry blossoms this […]

Spring DC Engagement Session | Cherry Blossom Season District of Columbia | Rachael and Charles

First comes love then comes marriage…. then comes engagement session?? Welp, if 2020 taught us anything it’s that life can be unpredictable. I actually photographed Erinn and Jon’s intimate Anderson House wedding mid-pandemic last year and we realized they never actually took engagement photos! When they reached back out I was over the moon excited […]
