DC sunrise lovin’

         First light at the Lincoln Memorial is always magical. Add a lovely couple for an engagement session? A dream! Daryus and Vanessa were so much fun to work with! They were so comfortable in front of the camera and their photos turned out stunning!          So here’s a little sweet story how Daryus proposed! The day before last year’s Thanksgiving, and it happened to be Daryus’s sister’s birthday; he invited Vanessa and her family for a dinner at Reston Town Center! While surrounded by their loved ones, Daryus went down on one knee and asked the woman of his dreams to become his forever. Of course Vanessa said yes! [smile] As seen on | DC REFINED Engagement venue| LINCOLN MEMORIAL, DC Wedding venue| SHADOW CREEK WEDDINGS Engagement ring| ELITE JEWELERS Cheers!

Christine + Oscar’s Garden Engagement

         Christine and Oscar went to the same college but actually never met. In 2010, they became roommates through a common friend and because they shared a lot of common interests, they instantly became good friends and eventually started dating. A couple of their shared interests are: architecture and cats! In fact, they are both architects and they have a fluffy cat named Margaux! [smile]          Last year around Christmas time, after watching one of their favorite comedians, Louis C.K., Oscar proposed to Christine and she said yes! Take a second look at her gorgeous engagement ring below!          Christine and Oscar will be tying the knot in November at Rust Manor House in Leesburg VA and I can’t wait to document their wedding day!

Cherry Blossoms Engagement in Washington DC

         After 4 years of dating, Rodney proposed to My right before Christmas of 2016 at the National Harbor in DC under a giant Christmas tree! My’s inner joke, how romantic! yet she said yes and that’s what matter the most!          My and Rodney are opposite! My is an introvert, who likes quiet times and loves to simply hang out with Rodey and their 2 cute dogs! She loves to dress up thus shows in her outfit choice for her engagement! Stunning! Rodney on the other hand is an extrovert. “He’s fun-loving and goofy!” Just how My described him casually! My fell in love with Rodney because of his personality, to sum it all up, he completes her!          My’s dream was to have her engagement session done in DC during the cherry blossoms season and she made it happened! It was like a fairytale that came true! They started their engagement at the Jefferson Memorial. They walked around, chatted a little and danced in front of the memorial overlooking the Washington Monument. It was breathing!          After their quick dance, they walked around the Tidal Basin and enjoyed the cherry blossoms while their blooming! In between their chats and quick dances, they giggled and gave each other some lovely kisses. These two were inseparable and so in love! Their photos truly shows their love and affection with each other!           My and Rodney will be getting married this September at RASPBERRY PLAIN MANOR in Leesburg, VA and they can’t wait to tie the...

Kristin + Josh Engaged!

         Kristin and Josh celebrated their engagement with a bottle of wine at Morven Park in Leesburg, Va. These two were inseparable! They held hands while walking, and snuck a few kisses here and there! It was a chilly afternoon but Josh made sure that Kristin was warm enough- he even blew her hands to keep her warm during their engagement which was really cute. I’m glad that moment was captured! You know what they say, if there was no picture, it didn’t happen! [smile]          After roaming around Morven Park, Kristin and Josh decided to sit down and just relax. They pulled their picnic blanket out, laid it on the cold grass and then it was time to take out their red wine.          Josh was an expert opening the wine bottle. In a few seconds, voila! the wine was opened and poured on two wine glasses. Kristin and Josh clinked their glasses and then sipped a little. After a few more sips, next thing you know, it was almost night time. Kristin and Josh watched the moon rose up while snuggling. Before it went dark, Kristin and Josh sealed their engagement celebration with a lovely kiss. Venue | MORVEN PARK Calligraphy | MOMMY IN PINK Cheers!

Deepika + Arthur’s Lincoln Memorial Sunrise Engagement

         It was a chilly Saturday morning at the mall for Deepika and Arthur. The sun was just peeking out when their engagement session started. These two were naturals in from of the camera; they laughed, they danced by the Reflection Pool and didn’t mind the crowd watching! Deepika and Arthur’s affection to each other showed beautifully in their pictures!          Arthur held Deepika’s hand and walked slowly by the Reflecting Pool from Lincoln Memorial towards the World War II memorial! It was such a lovely moment to watch them relive their second date! YES! You heard that right! How awesome is it to go back to your dating days and make it your engagement location? Genius! But wait! [smile]          Arthur and Deepika had a quick stop where Arthur popped “the question” to his future Mrs! I backed out a little and gave them some privacy to chat. I could still imagine their happy faces while glancing on each other’s eyes. It was a beautiful moment.
