Family Session – Broadway, Virginia

Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0028These are my sweet friends Carla and Carlos and their beautiful daughters.  We spent a lovely and chilly afternoon taking these photos near their home.  We found the coolest covered bridge which allowed us to take some fun photos. Carla, Carlos and girls, thanks for letting me be a part of this special session with you all!  It was such a joy. :)Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0021 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0001 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0002 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0003 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0005 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0004 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0006 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0007 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0008 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0009 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0010 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0011 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0013 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0012 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0015 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0014 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0017 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0020 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0016 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0022 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0019 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0025 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0027 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0026 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0024 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0023 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0029 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0031 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0030 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0032 Family.Virginia.Winter.Outdoor_0034

Nicole & Ryan: Jefferson Memorial, Washington, D.C. Proposal

Jefferson_DC_Proposal_0001

I can’t say how honored I feel to have been present for the engagement of Nicole and Ryan on a sunny and chilly February afternoon.  Ryan contacted me several months before the planned proposal and asked if I could be there to secretly photograph the event.  While an overcast and snowy morning had the potential to put a damper on the day, a sunny afternoon allowed the surprise to go off without a hitch!  The look on Nicole’s face, when Ryan got down on one knee, was priceless.  And then, braving the freezing temps and the windy gusts, we managed to spend a little time after the proposal taking some pictures around the Jefferson.  Ryan and Nicole couldn’t have been more sweet nor could they have been more in love.

Congratulations to you both.  I loved having the opportunity to photograph you guys!!  Thanks for letting me share in the moment. :)

No matter how hard we tried to control the wisps of hair blowing around by the wind, sometimes they had a life of there own. :) I loved the placement of the wisps in the image below.
