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!
