Caye + Colin's sunny Blagden Alley engagement session in Shaw | Washington DC engagement photographer
Real talk: I hate to admit it, but not all photo sessions are created equal. The weather, or the season, or the venue, or the light, or a wardrobe malfunction, or a weird camera malfunction (this is why I carry backup gear!) or even someone just having an off day or a bad mood are all super-common things that as a professional photographer, I deal with all the time. And it's my job to handle them gracefully, and in the words of Tim Gunn, "make it work". I'm always proud of my ability to do that, and for the most part, my couples never even know that it was a thing! But a handful of times every season, the stars align perfectly, everyone looks and feels great, we have a killer venue, and perfect weather, and EVERYTHING IS AWESOME. This is one of those sessions. There were rainbow murals, and bicycles, and Caye + Colin are so photogenic and their pup is so cute and general anytime I look at these photos, they just make me happy. Caye + Colin, thank you for trusting me to capture your love, and thank you for playing in Blagden Alley with me, one of my favorite places in DC! Yay!
