Jennifer & Evan

Nov 6, 2013

Dude. The light in the fall has got to be the most amazing light. Ya know, aside from that awesome California light all those photographers get in their photographs. When I typed an email to Evan and Jennifer suggesting we have an 8am start time in DC for their shoot, I sorta died a little inside because I like to sleep until at least 7am and this meant leaving at 7am. But we all did it, coffee in tow, and honestly, I never regret waking up early to capture two beautiful people in the best light possible. And that is exactly what I got to do Saturday. Jennifer and Evan are total sweethearts, so cuddly and cute; they are just a perfect fit for each other which makes them crazy easy to photograph. We hung out at Meridian Hill Park amongst the people working out and walking their dogs and then strolled down to 14th and U where these two had stayed up until 3am after just meeting for the first time at a birthday party. Sounded like a pretty awesome birthday party considering another couple met that night and are already married as well! So awesome! Can’t wait until February to get you two in front of my camera again!

The color!! The light!! It’s all amazing!!

Conveniently placed bride and groom.

    You are right, the light is amazing especially with that yellow tree! I love how they are balanced infront of the waterfall, and the rings infront of the painted wall is awesome!
