Prior to Katie & Matt’s sunrise session (which you can find here), I hadn’t had the opportunity to do a session in Georgetown despite desperately wanting to take advantage of all the beautiful, hidden spots it has to offer. Oddly enough, I got an inquiry from Lucy who also wanted to do a sunrise engagement session with her fiancé, Michael, in Georgetown that exact same weekend! I giddily accepted on the spot; Abby Grace turned me into a sunrise convert so anytime someone agrees to one, it’s icing on the cake!
I knew it would be a bit of a challenge to ensure that the sessions didn’t turn in to a replica of one another; when doing them back to back in the same location it is easy to fall into the trap of repeats. In some ways, the weather did half the work for me! Katie and Matt had overcast grey skies, while Lucy and Michael had a glowing sunrise – neither bad, just different and beautiful in their own unique way! While I tried to avoid going to the same locations, we of course had to go to the iconic canal as the beautiful reflections that it creates are to die for! Both turned out absolutely stunning and there is just no easy way to pick a favorite so you’ll have to decide for yourselves!
Lucy and Michael were an absolute dream to work with; their love for one another came pouring out immediately, doing half the posing work for me through their natural embraces and soft gentle kisses. These two will be getting married next April in Peru! The majority of Lucy’s family still lives there and instead of having them travel here, they decided to take the once in a lifetime opportunity to have scenic Peru as the backdrop for their big day. I hope you enjoy some favorites of this sweet couple as much as I did!
