Fall Engagement Session in Washington D.C. Christina + Chris | Washington D.C.

Couple Sessions

Christina and Chris are one of my beautiful 2018 couples and I had SO much fun with them at their engagement session last week!! Their session brought me to an area of D.C. that I had never visited before…it was BEAUTIFUL! But…I’m not too great at D.C. driving. Haha!! I missed ONE turned on the way in because of construction and it added 25 MINUTES to my ETA!! But, apparently that’s typical D.C. driving so these two were SO understanding 🙂

The title of this is “fall” engagement session…but it definitely felt more like summer while we were shooting! These two modeled through it like champs and the images are so gorgeous because of it! I hope you enjoy some of my favorites of Christina and Chris – I can’t WAIT for the wedding next year!!

These two just kill me!! Chris’s best friend calls him “Tiger” and it’s been his nickname since college…so they had to incorporate it somehow!! HAHA!
