Danielle + Tom // Washington DC Engagement

Summer magic in DC. 

It was an unnaturally cool evening in DC when I met up with Danielle + Tom.  The days before were excruciatingly hot but for whatever reason, out of nowhere, this day was perfect.  We explored Washington DC's Tidal Basin for more than two hours hanging out, walking around, and getting some gorgeous views of the Washington Monument and the Potomac River.  If you know me you also know that Roosevelt Park is one of my favorite lesser-known spots in DC, and I was so happy to check it out again with new friends!

Can't wait for these two to get married in November...I have a feeling that it's going to be amazing!!

Janene + Jerel // Richmond Virginia Engagement

Oddly enough, up until last week I have never done a portrait session in a recording studio. 

Well, check that one off the bucket list!  Because this engagement session at In Your Ear recording studio in Richmond Virginia was amazing!

First off, Janene looked stunning in a beautiful, sparkly black dress.  And I loved her ability to make Jerel laugh.  Second let me also mention that Jerel is a FANTASTIC pianist.  It's not every day that your engagement session has a soundtrack performed by the subject. 

Their love and affection for each other made me really happy.  I could tell by the way they held each other and looked at each other that there is something truly special and joyful about them.  This session was an incredible amount of fun and I'm so excited to be showing these images off!

Amanda + Jason // Richmond Virginia Engagement

Amanda + Jason met up with me at Floodwall Park in Richmond Virginia, and we explored the small park and gigantic floodwall, with its epic views of the James River and downtown Richmond City!  It was warm and wonderful, sunny and not too hot.  And yes they brought their dog along!

I loved spending some time with these two and getting to know them a bit!  Amanda + Jason are spunky and adventurous, and their love for each other is evident just looking at them. 

After Floodwall Park we made our way over to Scott's Addition and walked around exploring for a bit before stopping by Ardent for a few beers, which speaking of, I'm going to recommend beers during all future engagement sessions.

It's...the right thing to do.

Their wedding isn't until next year, but I'm already excited for it!
