From the moment I met Courtney and Nick for their Washington DC engagement session I knew that they were fun people! After the initial introductions they started joking with us as if we had been long time friends. Pete had initially met Courtney while photographing a corporate event for her German employer in DC. After he was done with the event someone mentioned that Courtney was engaged and was looking for someone to take their engagement photos.
Fast forward 2 months to when we received an inquiry from her and Nick. They told us that they were ready for their images to be taken! The only thing that was important to them was that their pics included one of the monuments, preferably the Lincoln. And that another location was the National Portrait Gallery. Both of those were of course no problem!
We started their session relatively early on a Sunday morning hoping that there would not be too many people at the Lincoln Memorial. And we were in luck. We took a few pictures of them in front of the Lincoln Memorial and by the reflecting pool with the Washington Monument in the background. Then we headed to the National Portrait Gallery. Working for a foundation Courtney often visits the Smithsonian Museums with out of town visitors and this was her favorite one. We started in the courtyard and made our way up through Courtney’s favorite exhibits.
Congratulations Courtney and Nick! We are so honored that you chose us to take your engagement photos and can’t wait to document your wedding in 2019!
