The weather the month has been crazy, to say the least. It’s been unseasonably cool for September (which I am certainly not complaining about — bring on fall as soon as possible, please!) and we’ve been experiencing some devastating hurricanes across the country. Thankfully the Washington, DC area has been spared the worst, but it’s brought quite a bit of rain to the region which is never a good thing when it comes to planning your photo session! Not surprisingly, all this rain coincided with one of my busiest weeks for engagement sessions and I had lots of stressed out clients, understandably so. At Colleen and Ted’s session, I was joking with them that I had many clients vying for their sunrise session block because it was the one morning that week that was supposed to be clear! It turns out, these two were headed to California for a wedding in Napa Valley later that night, so it worked out perfectly as they wouldn’t have been able to reschedule for weeks!
What we ended up with was a perfect sunrise in the Bishop’s Garden at Washington National Cathedral. I later found out this actually where Ted proposed to Colleen, so it was a meaningful spot to this sweet couple. They were students at Georgetown and went to visit the iconic monument one weekend and he popped the question while they were inside! Since Georgetown itself was also an important part of their relationship, we also headed downtown to stop on some of the adorable streets and were in awe of the beautiful architecture.
These two are getting married next April in Georgetown and then heading to the Chevy Chase Club afterwards for drinking and dancing with their friends! I cannot wait to capture their big day in our nation’s capital this spring; Colleen has already teased me with a dress from Kleinfelds, so you know this is going to be a stunner!
