photography for the modern romantic

Angela + Alex | Burke Lake Park | Fairfax, VA

Right from my very first call with Angela to discuss her vision for her and Alex’s engagement session, I knew this was going to be a match made in heaven! First, they were super clear about wanting to get away from rigid photography poses and, instead, try to capture their unique relationship using fun prompts which encouraged candid moments. UMMMMM, HELLO Y’ALL… that’s my thing! Second, they wanted their giant furball pup, Apollo, to get in on the fun. I think it was around that point that I started squeeee-ing over the phone. Dream clients and dream sessions are my JAM. Spoiler Alert: Apollo was a MODEL dog.

Now let’s get to Angela and Alex. These two are straight up darlings. As soon as we started working, I could see their love for each other and also for Apollo! I had such a blast capturing their connection and giving them the opportunity to play around, to dance, to twirl, and to just enjoy themselves in front of the camera! Also major shoutout to Alex for being our resident spider-remover during the session! I hope you all enjoy this gorgeous family’s photos as much as I do!
