To say that I enjoyed my trip to D.C. would definitely be an understatement. The day after my birthday I hit the road to visit with my soul sister (and photo assistant extraordinaire), Tiffany, and shoot engagement photos for these two beautiful people. Zach + Lani met in Washington, D.C. and are moving to another city, so this shoot was bitter sweet. It was so beautiful watching them dance, laugh, chat, and hold hands all through the beautiful place where they fell in love. It is always inspiring to take photos in a new place with fresh eyes and I am just loving these photos. I hope I was able to capture Zach + Lani the way they see each other and themselves.
Here are a few of my favorites...
Thank you to Zach and Lani for just being your fun-loving selves and for hiring me- I can't wait to shoot your wedding. Thank you to Alexis for taking time out to catch up with me, have wine on the rooftop, and frolic amongst the monuments at 1:00am, and to Tiffany for being the best hostess, photo assistant, and friend. My cup runneth over.
I have been looking forward to this engagement shoot for quite some time. It seems like so long ago that Kelsey contacted me to book me for their wedding. The first time we met face to face was this shoot.
This spring engagement session turned into more of an "earthy" engagement session because everything is just starting to bloom and turn green.
Kelsey & Joey are truly the sweetest people. We took a long walk around Oglebay Park (it was pretty chilly) and stopped when we noticed places that we wanted to shoot. Kelsey was such a trooper in her little white dress in the cold. I really enjoyed chatting with them and learning more about them in between shots. They are just genuine, sweet, good people.
Joey spent a lot of his time snuggling up to Kelsey and trying to make sure she wasn't cold. All the smiles and snuggles are genuine. They just really love each other and I am so happy I am the one that got to capture that in their photos. I am even more excited for their wedding!
Here are a few of my favorites..,
Thank you Joey + Kelsey for being your amazing, natural, selves during this shoot and for giving me the honor of shooting your wedding this year!
Lots of Love,
