The stunning gardens of Tudor Place Mansion in the Georgetown district of Washington, DC was the absolute perfect location for Kate and Michael’s engagement session early this fall. Summer greenery and florals were still in full bloom but there was a hint of crisp fall weather in the air.
Fall will always hold a special spot in Kate and Michael’s relationship, for it was fall when they met on the first day of orientation at Harvard Law School in 2013. Funnily enough, these two actually attended ungrad together at Brown and both majored in English, but never really crossed paths! Michael, however, recognized her from campus and introduced himself to her. As they say, the rest is written in history!
After graduation, they moved to the Washington, DC area where they work in completely different fields; Michael’s expertise is in Privacy & Security Law while Kate is working under a Federal Judge… as you can probably imagine, free time is limited for them at the moment! But both loving to travel, they find themselves taking spontaneous trips when the opportunity presents itself. It was on one of these trips last spring, to London, where Michael proposed! Knowing how important photography is to Kate, he searched high and low for someone to capture the moment. Turns out, photography is looked upon a bit different across the pond! Photographer after photographer just couldn’t understand why he would want them to stand there while he proposed — wouldn’t that ruin the surprise, they thought!? After navigating the
language communication barrier, Michael was finally able to convince one gentleman to hide behind a tree so Kate was totally taken off guard! It was on the early end of their getaway, so they were able to spend the rest of their time enjoying their good news!
Michael and Kate will be married next summer at the historic Anderson House in Washington, DC!
