Waking up in the mornings can be hard especially when we are talking 4:45am! When it comes to photographing engagement sessions in DC, it’s all worth it. Christine and Pat’s Sunrise Jefferson Memorial Engagement Session had the most beautiful morning glow and we had the place all to ourselves, just the way I like it. Their first date was at North Side Social in Arlington. They hit it off and Pat popped the question in January! They are now planning an August 2020 wedding.

I feel so honored to have been able to document a small part of this special couple’s lives and cannot wait to watch the rest of their story unfold. Looking forward to capturing their August 2020 wedding in the DC area.
