It was about 9 AM last Sunday morning and my phone rang. Steph had found me on The Knot and was in a panic after her photographer had canceled on her for the 4th time. “This is the last weekend we could possibly take engagement pictures because we’re moving but we really wanted pictures in DC and I even got my hair and nails done and EVERYTHING!” Well. Of course I had to meet up with them, afterall she had her hair and nails done and everything! :0) She then told me how she and Matt really wanted more modern, edgy, hip style pictures and I knew we were gonna get along GREAT!
I know it was no fun to deal with all those cancelations, but I’m SO glad that it worked out the way it did! We had an absolutely gorgeous 65 degree sunny Sunday afternoon to get to know each other and take some awesome pictures around Old Town Alexandria and Washington DC. Steph and I both kept saying how everything was just so meant to work out this way. I loved getting to know this awesome couple; hearing all about how they met, the proposal, their wedding plans, and moving to Texas at the end of the month. Stephanie and Matt, I had so much fun getting to know you guys this past weekend. It was awesome to see how well you love each other. How Steph just lit up talking to me one on one telling me how she knew right away Matt was ‘the one’, while Matt sprinted to go get the car so she wouldn’t have to walk in those high heels three different times. I’m so excited for this new friendship and to see how all your plans for the wedding unfold! I’m sure its going to be absolutely perfect! :0)
Hellooooo gorgeous!! They very nice/sleepy trolly driver generously woke up from her nap to let us on the empty car for a few shots :0) Then we headed into the city to end the session and I’m so glad we did! They are so bummed to leave this area at the end of the month so we wanted to take some in the heart of the city.I really love these last two.. they were definitely some of the favorites of the day! Here’s your slideshow! Enjoy!! :0)
