National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C. Engagement Session

When I realized that Lisa and Oliver lived in Washington D.C., despite the Pittsburgh PA wedding and celebration they're planning for later this fall, I jumped at the chance to head to D.C. to photograph their engagement session.  Our plans got waylaid.. twice.  The session was first scheduled in the spring but needed to be rescheduled when we realized the Pittsburgh Penguins (go figure!) would be in D.C. to play the Capitals in the playoffs.  We rescheduled for mid summer in hopes of lovely warm weather and lots of wandering around monuments.  When the weekend planned called for torrential downpours instead, Lisa and Oli didn't let that get them down and instead decided we'd move indoors to the National Gallery of Art - and I am so glad we did!  It may have been raining buckets outside, but we were cozy and able to take our time strolling through the galleries and getting some awesome shots among the artwork and architecture. 

Thanks so much you two for letting me capture these for you!  It was so fun and I'm excited for October! 

Linn Run Engagement, Christine & Brad

Christine and Brad will be getting married later this summer in Pittsburgh so they wanted a completely different vibe for their engagement photographs.  We met in Linn Run State Park on a day in March that turned out to be a beautiful winter wonderland.  One of my favorite things about engagement sessions is the ability to get to know my clients a little bit better and take some time to really relax and have fun with the session.  And these two were a breeze.  So many smiles and laughter, they made my job easy. 

Below are some of my favorite images!
