Christina & Kevin – DC

Oct 3, 2013

A few admin things: So, I have been absent from my blog the last two days which is no bueno! Things are happening in my personal life right now that are super exciting but taking up way too much of my time. And it’s busy season! Crazy! But seriously, no more excuses! I may be doing High Five for Friday on the weekend for the next two weeks to stay caught up on real posts during the week, just so you know.

I really truly loved this session. Yes I was working late the night before, yes I set my alarm for an ungodly hour of the morning, yes I drove to DC and forgot my coffee, but seeing the sun rise with these two, being so totally in love and in a city they love so much on the Lincoln Memorial steps, was definitely a magical thing to see and capture. Couldn’t have spent my morning doing anything better while being awake. 😉

This really just made me super ecstatic for their big day next August!!
