DELANEY & TJ | A JEFFERSON MEMORIAL ENGAGEMENT SESSION

Engagements

November 13, 2015

The moment I started chatting with Delaney about wedding plans – I knew we were going to hit it off! She sent me an email with lots of detail that I could paint the picture of her wedding vision. That’s my kinda girl – I’m a sucker for ALL THE DETAILS. I’ve been that way for forever. I think Delaney was scared she was telling me too many things, but I assured her that she wasn’t crazy! When it came time to decide where she wanted engagement photos taken it just HAD to be DC. TJ proposed to Delaney in front of the Washington Monument. I mentioned that the Jefferson Memorial was the perfect spot because you can see the monument perfectly across the tidal basin! Being huge Halloween fans, they skipped their normal party plans so they would be photo ready the day after Halloween! To compromise, Delaney let TJ wear his Halloween tie to the photoshoot. Both of them were so photogenic and easy going! We had a blast shooting all around the Jefferson! The place was swarming with people and two other photoshoots happening at the same time… but you’d never be able to tell from these images!! I can’t wait to photograph their wedding next Summer!

    Oh my gosh! TJ at TJ’s memorial — how cool is that? Delaney and TJ such a darling couple! Loved the penny loafers!! And the way you captured the blue and red bikes on either side of the photo proving there were people there yet without having your subjects centered in the photo was sheer perfection!
