It came as no surprise that photographing Tori & Dave’s Lincoln Memorial engagement session at sunrise in Washington, DC was nothing short of a delight. These two were an absolute joy to be around from the moment we first met. Additionally, Tori comes a reference from a long line of past clients who, truly, have been some of my all time favorite people to work with.
If you haven’t been following along, I’ll take you all the way back to 2016, when I first connected with Sam & Ash at their Dumbarton Oaks engagement session. I, unfortunately, wasn’t able to document their wedding the following fall as I was due with Landon just days after it would have taken place — something that still bums me out to this day! That same year, however, I did get to photograph Sarah & Justin’s Riverside on the Potomac wedding. Fast forward to 2018, and I’m so honored to document Olivia & Kyle’s Meridian Hill Park engagement, followed by Jenlain & Matty’s Old Town Alexandria wedding in 2019.
While these might all seem like random sessions and weddings to mention, they have one thing in common — Sam, Sarah, Olivia, Jenlain, and Tori all work (or have worked) with one another at the same law firm in Washington, DC. And they are all truly lovely people who I could gush on and on about. I owe a big shout out to whoever is in charge of hiring at their firm — you have selected some of the most intelligent, kind, and progressive women in the District and it is nothing short of an honor to have worked with all of them.
And a second shout out to all of their equally wonderful significant others who are just as kind, funny, and thoughtful as their counterparts — an ALP reunion with all of you is something we officially need to plan!
Tori & Dave, thank you so much for allowing me to document this time in your lives! Wishing you both a beautiful celebration next January in Mexico with your nearest and dearest!
