Is it October yet?! Aidan and Greg are my first clients to book me less than 4 months before wedding day! It’s actually very fitting with their personalities. These two value love and none of the pomp and circumstance that surrounds wedding day. They are having a small ceremony at the Josephine Butler Center which they want to feel more like a casual party & cocktail hour with friends. This may be the first time I will not be documenting getting ready or detail shots on wedding day!

Washington D.C. Engagement Session | District of Columbia Wedding Photographer | Kir Tuben

I will never stop thanking Pinterest for connecting me with Shannon and Ben. Shannon wanted some quintessential DC engagement photos and my goodness we got them! It was a little foggy at sunrise at the Jefferson Memorial but that didn’t stop us from getting amazing images! Shannon is also my favorite because she read all of my blog posts! She wore a maxi dress AND brought her sister as a dog handler. Hello perfect client.

When Rebecca showed up wearing this Lulus sequin gold dress I nearly had a heart attack. How stunning does she look!? Rebecca and Christian were in town on a little vacation up from South Carolina. She is a wedding photographer herself, and as such, this couple treats themselves to anniversary photos once a year! I was honored to be able to capture this session for them!

Oh Lincoln Memorial sunrise engagement sessions, how I love thee. This light and this location may never get old. Ashley and Will were my first couple ever to do have photos taken at the Lincoln and Jefferson Monuments in one session. I was surprised at how easy the transition was!

I just adore couples that talk about pizza and their animals. Molly and Dan were a blast to hang out with at their engagement session at the Lincoln Memorial. They had just gotten a new puppy named Jake so naturally, labs were a big topic of conversation. The weather was stunning so, naturally, we had to get creative with the tourists around at sunset but these two were troopers waiting for the right moment to snap these images!

THIS SESSION RIGHT HERE. Wow. Bri and Nic heated up the monuments on this overcast sunrise engagement session. The second Bri arrived in that dress, my jaw dropped. Doesn’t she look stunning!? Maxi dresses at engagement sessions are my fave.

The story of how Paige and Jared met is straight out of a fairytale. Jared lost his wallet in a movie theater. Paige was the lucky movie-goer who found the lost item and called the phone number in the wallet to try to return it to its rightful owner. The number was actually Jared’s mother! After some light conversation, Jared asked Paige on a date and the rest is history!

Meadowlark Botanical Gardens Engagement | Paige and Jared

It was 6:30AM on a Sunday when I met with Jonathan and Erin. The two both admitted to being rather camera shy and felt that the concept of posing for an hour was a bit unnatural; I couldn’t agree more! No one is used to having a stranger capture intimate moments of kissing and nuzzling. After a few warm up poses, these two became naturals! I couldn’t believe how much fun they were having! This completely reaffirmed my beliefs that a couple should do an engagement session before their big day.
