Engagement Sessions

All the Details

Whether you plan to use Save the Dates or just want to share your first professional photos together as a couple, engagement sessions are really more about getting to know each other before the wedding day. Let's grab coffee or drinks before beginning our session where he proposed to you last summer, or the pub you visited on your first date. Sit back, relax, and enjoy being in front of the camera. I promise I'll teach you everything!

Engagement sessions can be taken anywhere but are most often at a specific location that holds a special meaning to you as a couple. Let me know if a place like that exists! Otherwise I'll have a few recommendations for you in the DC area. Sessions may take place at either sunrise or sunset, Sunday or Monday each week.
