This is not the first time I have captured this BEAUTIFUL couple. Laura was a bridesmaid in a wedding I shot earlier this year, and I snagged a few photos of her and her fiancé, Wes, on the dance floor. At the time I had no idea who they were (the coolest couple ever – thats who) or that in just a few months I would be shooting their engagement session in Washington D.C. Let me tell you, I was SO DOWN to shoot int D.C. This wasn’t a destination shoot for them. They live and breath this city, so it was so fitting to have their session in the midst of it. Wes is the manager of the Hyatt Place Washington D.C/White House and Laura works for the Nations Parks Service for the White House. I told you they were cool, didn’t I?! Laura was giving off some major Olivia Pope vibes in that white dress. People on a tour bus even started pointing, staring and taking pictures because they looked like movie starts and I was following them around with a camera.
Wes and Laura are so incredibly sweet, funny, full of life and kind! We had so much fun. There was a lot of laughter in this session which was mostly me making fun of Wes (sorry..) and fawning over Laura because she’s perfect. Wes is an avid Eagles fan and Laura is INSANE at yoga, so we incorporated that into their shoot! Laura, Wes and I have been talking about this shoot for a while and I LOVED that they came into it with vision and excitement. Afterward they took me out to lunch (so sweet, I know) where we had GREAT sushi and got to know each other even more. It’s not every day or every business that you can have lunch with your clients and really feel like you’re just hanging out with friends talking about life. They were so encouraging and just plain good to be around.
It took a lot of will power to not share every single image from this shoot with you, but there were literally hundreds, and I want this to be a blog post of reasonable length! Congratulations Wes and Laura! I truly can not wait to capture your wedding next year. If this is your engagement shoot, I can’t imagine how gorgeous your wedding will be!!
