Kathleen + Matt | Reston Engagement Session Reston Town Center

Couple Sessions

Oh I just LOVE these two!!! When they first emailed me last month, I sent over a little list of questions to get to know them better. When they emailed back, they had taken the time to sit down TOGETHER and answer the questions-with little snippets of responses from each of them thrown in! It was the SWEETEST thing + I immediately fell in love with their love!

Kathleen + Matt wanted to have their engagement session somewhere near home. They frequently take strolls + shopping trips through the Reston Town Center, so we decided it would be the perfect place to shoot! We explored the adorable streets, parks + squares while we shot + I can’t get enough of these images! The bow in her hair + those match Converse…so sweet! Matt + Kathleen both take swing dancing classes and I LOVE that we incorporated that into their session at the end (keep on scrolling to see!!)

Enjoy my favorites from Matt + Kathleen’s engagement session + just WAIT until you see their wedding next year!!

    Aww I love these! They seem so carefree and joyous. Also Reston Town Center is the best, it’s so close to my home and I’ve always wanted to do a photoshoot there with a couple!
