Michelle + Alex | Washington, DC Engagement

I am beyond excited to share Michelle and Alex’s engagement with you, because I just love these two so much.  Michelle and Alex are two of my most hip, stylish, cool, and fun friends. When they reached out about an engagement session, I am pretty sure I screamed.

 

They wanted to do something meaningful and unique to their relationship, so we planned a multi-part engagement photo session to capture the essence of their relationship.

 

We started off with an in-home lifestyle engagement photo shoot with their four adorable cats. I like to help couples feel “at home” so we often start with an activity to help everyone get comfortable. I had Michelle and Alex make each other a drink, turn on some music, and asked them questions about their love story!

 

We then took things outside and played in the alley before hopping on their motorcycle to head out to Edwards’ Ferry. You read that correctly. Their MOTORCYCLE. I told you they were cool! On our way out to Edwards’ Ferry things started to look gloomy, like the sky was about to dump a bunch of water on us. I asked them to pull over and shoot on a random roadway and then the sky opened up. They were such great sports about it!

 

I love how these shots feel like stills from a movie. The rain, the moto, their home all felt so cinematic - like snippets from their indie film love story.

I’d love to tell your love story next! check out my couples portfolio and contact me!

xoxo,

Megan

Luis + Isha | Surprise Engagement Party | Lost Creek Winery, Virginia

Isha + Luis are engaged! YAY!

A few weeks ago, Luis contacted me about a surprise party he was planning for his girlfriend, Isha. I think you could say I was pretty pumped because 1. Isha and I have been following each other on Instagram for, well, years and have never met in person and 2. I’ve therefore been following Luis and Isha’s relationship from afar and couldn’t be more excited!

Luis worked out all the details, even contacting Isha’s job to make sure she would have the day off. He successfully planned a surprise proposal and engagement party at The Vineyards & Winery at Lost Creek in Leesburg, Virginia for Isha, with 26 of their closest family and friends, from all over the country (and beyond!)

Their joy was absolutely contagious. It was so obvious how in love these two were, and we loved every minute. Congrats, you two!
