I met Greg and Caroline at the National Arboretum last weekend to take engagement photos. It was the perfect spring day. We may have missed the cherry blossoms this year, but the park was gorgeous and everything was in bloom. I strategically placed us to avoid shots with the throngs of tourists who also thought it was the perfect spring day-man oh man was that place crowded. We enjoyed columns and gardens until the security guards kicked us out at closing time, then we headed to the Capitol Building. The second location was sentimental because Greg proposed to Caroline at the Capitol building, and then whisked her away to Paris to celebrate. Tres romantique, non?
I had a blast shooting Mike and Meredith's engagement photos. We met at Meridian Hill Park in D.C. for some photos at dusk, and then we hit U Street and Logan Circle for a few nighttime shots. Mike and Meredith were great models and they went along with all my crazy ideas. They stood in the middle of Mass Ave with traffic zooming by, posed in front of Ben's Chili Bowl, and feigned terror over an imaginary UFO attack. The fingerstaches were a nice touch, too.
