Georgetown University engagement session: Carolina + Rich

While we'd never met beforehand, Carolina seems like maybe a little bit of a kindred spirit. We both work by day for awesome organizations with environmental missions. Anyway, Carolina and Rich are a charming couple. I'm shooting their small backyard wedding in a few weeks, so this past Sunday we took the opportunity to get some engagement photos and extra wedding shots at the Dahlgren Chapel on the campus of Rich's alma mater, Georgetown.

We'd originally planned to do their shoot along the C&O Canal in Georgetown. But for those of you not playing the home game, the weather gods have smiled on DC with lots  of rain this spring. We had to cancel the shoot the first time around, and it rained hard a day before our rescheduled date. If you've ever been to the C&O Canal, you know the towpath has potential for lots of mud when it's been wet, so we decided to play it safe and shoot at the chapel instead. I couldn't be happier with the results!

We got some charming casual shots (and who can resist Carolina's smile?), but I think the real gems from our handiwork were when Carolina was in her wedding dress and Rich was looking dapper in his suit. If they look this good on their big day, their guests will be in for a treat!

My favorite images of the day. Who can resist a couple as sweet as this with such a gorgeous backdrop?
