Today we celebrate Stephen and Alicia as they prepare to say their vows!
These two were so much fun to work with during their Washington DC engagement session! It’s easy to see how much they adore each other. I would catch Stephen gazing at his beautiful bride-to-be and Alicia just glowed with love.
I am thankful for the opportunity to get to know this gorgeous couple and I can’t wait to celebrate with them as they tie the knot later this evening.
Thank you to Stephen and Alicia for allowing me to photograph this special moment in your lives! May God bless your wedding day and continue to grow the love that you share. <3
If you are looking for a Washington DC engagement photographer, please email me. I’d love to chat with you!
In the meantime, there are a few things you’ll want to consider as you begin planning your engagement photos:
What to Wear
Don’t let this one stump you, I’ve shared a few tips to help you get started here. Keep in mind that you are more than welcome to change your outfit midway through the session. If you have any questions about this, please email me.
Location, Location, Location
Is there a place that has a special meaning to you? Tell me all about it and we’ll try to work it into your session.
While they are absolutely not required and your gorgeous ring is usually the focal piece for that kind of shots, simple props like the bouquet of flowers that Alicia held for a few of these photos can be a nice addition to your session.
Glasses or no glasses?
For someone who wears glasses on a daily basis, you’ll likely want to include them during your engagement photos like Stephen did. One thing to keep in mind though, is that I still want to see your beautiful eyes. That said, I recommend you leave the transition lenses at home.
My goal is to capture images that truly show the love you have for each other.
So while it may feel a little awkward at first, please don’t be afraid to snuggle up, smile, giggle, cuddle, hug, kiss, dance, and most of all… please have fun!
And a few more images, because you need check out Alicia’s amazing ring! Nice work Stephen. 🙂
