When I think of Madeline and Alex and their casual Capitol Hill engagement photos, I think of laughter and sass! Maybe laughter because of sass! haha
Better than Cellfies
Madeline and Alex, like many couples I talk to, wanted to commemorate their engagement of course, and at the same time, were excited to get some ‘good’ photos of them together. True, everyone has the typical #cellfies and other cell phone pics while maybe dressed up at a wedding or other event, but it’s a completely different thing to have a professional take photos of you! That’s one reason these two engaged love birds were excited for their casual Capitol Hill engagement photos.
I often hear from couples that they aren’t great at having their photo taken, and especially that they struggle taking photos together – and very rarely is that the case. These two were actually great at having their photo taken! I think it helped that Alex has a strong sense of humor and he kept Madeline (and me!) laughing pretty much the entire time! And if you can’t tell, I’m here to tell you – that looks adorable in photos! It was a great way to capture the fun these two probably have together all the time!
These two love birds had what I feel like is a quintessential D.C. meet-cute experience! Their law firms merged a couple years ago and that’s how they met! They love to do things together, like go to concerts and play kickball, and what I appreciated most about what they shared, is that they love to try new things together! Life is more fun when you have someone by your side for adventure!
Best wishes and congratulations to Madeline and Alex!
