hooray you're in!

Best Outdoor Engagement Photo Location in DC: Becky and Dan

October 3, 2017

Becky and Dan have given me a new favorite phrase that I’ve used at least a dozen times in just the last week!! In their engagement questionnaire, where we asked them to describe their relationship, they said, “We share heart.” Wow! Isn’t that just an amazing description of what happens with that person you love? You feel one another’s joys and sorrows. A wound to one is a wound to the other and any triumph belongs to both. I’ve thought about this a lot over the last week, and I’ve realized the more I can think of my relationship with my husband this way, the better we’ll disagree. I couldn’t hurt or insult my own heart, right?! So, I just loved this description of Becky and Dan’s relationship. I also loved the words they used to describe each other. They spoke about integrity, faith, honesty, and self-sacrifice. These are the qualities that a strong marriage is built upon! Before their shoot, I was feeling so privileged to meet them and photograph their relationship!!!

Y’all: they were just as sweet in person. I loved that, while their questionnaire was deep, they related in a fun, silly, and lighthearted way. The perfect (and most adorable!) balance. They said they’re like puzzle pieces, and it’s true: they just fit together! We absolutely cannot WAIT for their wedding day.

One last word about the location of this shoot. Because Becky and Dan are both runners and being outdoors is a huge part of their relationship, we were looking for something with a very outdoorsy look in an accessible location. A photographer friend of ours uses Pierce Mill frequently, so we thought we’d give it a shot. Every one of us was blown away by the *perfection* of this location!!! It’s super easy to access at Tilden and Beach Drive. We couldn’t believe that it boasts woodsy trails, rustic bridges, a gorgeous tree canopy and EVEN a small little waterfall(!!!!). We also loved that it’s part of Becky and Dan’s regular live because Becky does hill workouts right by the mill!!! We will definitely be using it again and I’m so, so glad they helped us find it!!

Becky and Dan – congratulations!!! We are so happy you both found your puzzle piece and we can’t *wait* to photograph all the joy of your wedding next August!!!!
