This week’s plan to do a post with all my recent fun wedding engagement sessions got a bit derailed this morning. I received an email from a special MOB (mother of the bride) who wanted to know if I’d do a slide show with their favorite images from the recent engagement session I did with her daughter and her fiance around Washington, DC.
I had so much fun with Hayley and Neil this summer as we took photos at the Jefferson Memorial (Neil is a UVA grad) and around Nationals Park (they’re both big Bryce Harper fans). We had a really short window to get the session done since Neil is heading back to military training and I’m thankful we had such a nice day. One shot included in the slide show was a special request from the bride-to-be. She had a copy of her mother’s wedding day photo of her parents sitting (yes, sitting in a wedding dress) along the edge of the Tidal Basin. Her dad was in full uniform and the pose was a little awkward and hard to hold without almost falling in. But we recreated it with great success.
Previously I’ve only done slide shows for weddings (and occasionally for other events) but never for an engagement session and WOW did I love the result. So while I work on my next post here’s is the slide show I made with the couple’s favorite images. And I’m now thinking this needs to be a regular thing.
