I know this is old news, but I am just getting around to talking about it because I didn't know how to process it! It was announced in February of 2017 that the Washington DC Temple would be closing for 2 years for extensive renovations. I was shocked. I was sad.
Engagement sessions are my absolute favorite! I have such a blast getting to know my couples during this time. It's a chance to get comfortable with each other and gives us the opportunity to talk about the wedding day.
They met at James Madison University at a fraternity/sorority mixer. Kaitlin and John were introduced through mutual friends. They were inseparable the whole night! The following day they went up to the mountains together and the rest was history! They dated a few more years throughout college. John graduated from JMU a year earlier than Kaitlin. He began his career in another city while she finished school. Long distance means they would alternate visiting each other every weekend. Their four hour roundtrip drives and accompanying visits made their relationship that much stronger!
I first met Diana and Rylan at her BROTHER'S WEDDING in August of 2017. Diana's mother had an unfortunate fall during the beginning of family pictures and had to be rushed off to the hospital to get stitches on the bridge of her nose. We were all traumatized in the moment but after everything it formed a friendship that I am grateful for.
Did you know that bridal sessions don't just have to have the bride? That's right, it's totally acceptable to get dressed up with your groom before the big day! In fact, it's very common in LDS weddings because often times weddings are scheduled in the middle of the day and don't offer ideal lighting situations.
Heidi and Patrick were sealed in the Washington DC Temple on the most beautiful sunny day! I couldn't believe how blue the sky was and how the perfectly placed clouds made it look like it was painted! The temple grounds were filled with exotic flowers and it was the perfect backdrop for such a sweet couple.

Isn't this family beautiful!? They are a blended family of 8! They were so much fun to work with and I loved their Carolina blue, navy and white color palette!
I had the best time with Joyce Anne and Mike at their First Landing State Park Engagement Session! I love engagement sessions because I get to know the couple and talk all about how they fell in love and what they like to do together.
