The elements that make a session fun for me (beautiful light + great couple + picturesque location) all came together for this shoot! I’m so excited to share Sara and Chase’s Capitol Hill engagement photos with you today!
Let’s start with the ‘great couple’ part of the equation. Sara and Chase were pure magic in front of the camera! They obviously know each other so well and are genuinely excited to be with each other. That made them total naturals in front of the camera. I barely had to say a word (oh, but I still did! haha Ya can’t get me to shut up when I’m behind the camera!) because these two were just snuggling, chatting, and joking their way into photo shoot gold for their Capitol Hill engagement photos!
Sara has been in medical school out of state for three years now (get it girl!) and Chase has been living in D.C., so they’ve been doing the long distance thing for a while now. Sara is hoping to move to the area soon for her residency and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for her!
Capitol Hill is obviously one of my favorite places to shoot. There are so many options within short walking distance, the light is incredible, there’s greenery as well as architecture – and lots of white! Sara and Chase like the architecture of the location and they wanted to capture the quintessential D.C. vibe, so Capitol Hill engagement photos seemed like the best thing to do!
And the light! Oh, the light. That’s obviously more of a luck thing since we can’t control the weather (believe me, I’ve tried!). But we got one of the best evenings for Sara and Chase’s Capitol Hill engagement photos, especially for late August. There was a light breeze, it wasn’t too hot, and the light was gorgeous and glowy – not a cloud in the sky. Just the way I like it.
Everything came together so perfectly to create a wonderful evening for Sara and Chase! Congratulations love birds! I hope the rest of your journey to the altar is just as smooth 🙂
