I seriously have the best job in the world! I get to combine all of my most important values into my work and capture some of people’s most precious moments and memories. I’m excited to share UD and Didi’s formal D.C. engagement photos with you today – because they’re a gorgeous couple and I love these images, and because this session a perfect example of combining my value of connection with my work.
I met Didi last spring when I took headshots and branding photos for him and his brother’s design company. They were so smart, funny, and just a joyful duo. It was fun to get to know them and take those important photos for their brand. Fast forward six months or so, and I was excited to hear from Didi again regarding taking engagement photos!
Didi and his fiance, UD, are originally from Nigeria. They were about to return home for their traditional Nigerian wedding celebrations and wanted to document their engagement in D.C. before they left. That’s where I came in!
Pat on the Back
Didi and UD love Georgetown, so we planned their formal D.C. engagement photos to take place in some picturesque spots in the area. I had found this cool mural last time I was there, and thought it would be perfect to complement UD’s gorgeous red gown. I was definitely patting myself on the back during Didi and UD’s formal D.C. engagement photos session, because we made it to they waterfront at the exact perfect time to get one of the glowiest, warmest portraits I’ve ever taken, that just screams ‘autumn’!
As of last month, Didi and UD are officially married, so congratulations and best wishes to these sweet love birds!
