Couple Sessions

On Sunday, I had the opportunity to spend the evening with Libby and Mark for their engagement session and I just LOVE them!! They are one of my sweet 2017 couples and, after emailing and Skyping with these two, I wasn’t sure if I could love them any more than I already did…but I adore them even more after our shoot together!! These two are so kind, loving and full of grace. They are also HILARIOUS and so much fun to spend time with!!

We planned to do their shoot in Old Town Alexandria (which I absolutely love!!) But, a drive that is supposed to take 50 minutes took almost 3 hours…and I didn’t realize until I was 5 minutes away that the Marine Corps marathon was in Old Town the same day!! OOPS. We ended up finding some of the most beautiful side streets and alley ways and I just adore every photo from this shoot! I can’t wait to be a part of Libby and Mark’s wedding day next June…enjoy some of my favorites from their e-shoot until then!!


Love this one!!!
