Oh, guys, I am *so* excited to share these sunrise Old Town Alexandria engagement photos with you today! Vanessa and Sal chose Old Town Alexandria as the location for their session and I’m so glad they did! I’m even glad they chose sunrise (even though early wake ups are not my fav…) because that morning magic hour light was so good this past Sunday!

Meet Cute

Vanessa and Sal met in the cutest way – her best friend is Sal’s cousin! (Wouldn’t it be great if everyone’s best friend had a cousin that was your soul mate?! haha) The two love birds got engaged at the National Cathedral (!!!) in the spring, and Vanessa recently moved from Pennsylvania to be with Sal while he’s stationed here in northern Virginia. Vannessa, Sal, plus their dog, Nemo, make a happy trio – all excited for them to be married!

Morning MAGIC Hour

I met up with Vanessa and Sal (and Nemo) bright Sunday morning for their sunrise Old Town Alexandria engagement photos. We met at the waterfront to kick things off highlighting the beautiful sunrise in the background over the water. Oh, my goodness, it was pure magic!

Nemo, the Star

Speaking of pure magic, I have to give a huge shout out to the world’s best behaved dog, Nemo! Dogs can be kind of a wild card for photo shoots (see here). And I can’t blame them; it’s not like they know what’s going on! But Nemo, Nemo was different. As soon as I put my camera to my face to take a photo, he sat down and looked right at me! That never happens! He quickly became the star of every shot he was in during Vanessa and Sal’s sunrise Old Town Alexandria engagement photos sesh.

Congratulations and best wishes to Vanessa and Sal on your engagement!
