Nicole + Joe's sunlit winter DC engagement session at 14th St. and Meridian Hill Park

I have a new favorite dating app, Coffee Meets Bagel, and I found it thanks to Nicole and Joe, who sang its praises... and how not, when they're getting married in Baltimore this summer?! When it came time for Joe to pop the question to Nicole, there was one other family member he wanted to have on board first -- their pup, Macie. Joe had two jewelry boxes prepped and ready to go -- first, he presented Macie with a new collar and tag to pop the question, and then Nicole with a truly gorgeous ring. So it's only fitting that when we met up at Meridian Hill Park in January to celebrate with some engagement photos, that Macie had to join us to get things started! It was a little chilly but the sunshine was on our side on this gorgeous, crisp late winter day.

Once we'd finished up with Macie at the park and sent her off to frolic with a family friend, Nicole + Joe stepped up their game and changed into a gorgeous plum lace dress and coordinating suit... and from there we headed to DC's 14th Street corridor to stroll, see the sights, and generally just rock things. We finished up channeling our inner Parisians outside of Le Diplomat, before catching the last of that magic winter sunset light in Logan Circle park. I seriously can't wait for them to tie the knot at the Four Seasons Baltimore this summer!
