Kennedy Center Engagement Photographer | Washington DC | Kate & Rich

We knew from our very first phone call with our bride and groom, Kate & Rich, that we were a match made in heaven!  There usually comes a point in our conversations when we are speaking with a potential bride and groom when we know that we are perfect for each other.  In this particular case, it was when Kate mentioned that she and Rich had met in the 6th grade.  She alluded to the fact she they had met originally because she used to make fun of Rich!  But, we won’t give away the secret as to why she was teasing him;)  You’re welcome, Rich.

Jayson and I will often give our couples a “pep” talk prior to the session, because let’s be honest, having cameras in your face while trying to “connect” or make-out with your fiancé is NEVER comfortable.   We offer lots of direction when it comes to any posing to make sure that our clients feel absolutely at ease every step of the way.  But probably our most favorite images are the ones captured in between the poses.   Kate & Rich were SO awesome at making each other laugh!!  Their natural chemistry is so beautiful and it was an honor to photograph their engagement in the lovely town of Washington, DC.

Both creatives, Kate working at the Folger Shakespeare Library, and Rich, working at the Kennedy Center, they knew a DC shoot was exactly suited for them.  We began exploring a couple of monuments making our way to The Kennedy Center via the DC Metro.  Engagement sessions for Jayson and I are waaaay more than just taking some pretty photos of our couple.  This time gives us some insight to be able to see how our bride and groom interact with each other, how they talk and move together.  So we love to go exploring with them!!  Each couple is very beautifully unique and it’s our job to document their authentic love story, not one we’ve synthetically created.  To do a Washington DC and Kennedy Center engagement session, we invest as much time and energy as it takes, because to us this never seems like work.

We ended our time together at The Kennedy Center just as it began to rain.  We can’t thank you guys enough, Kate and Rich.  It was an absolute pleasure to spend time with you both and we are so beyond thrilled to be documenting your amazing wedding at The Antrim Mansion in 2016!!
