Lovers Don’t Finally Meet Somewhere, They’re In Each Other All Along | VA/DC/MD Engagement Photographer

The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you,
not knowing how blind that was.
 
Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere, they’re in each other all along.

Back in May of 2014 I photographed a very cool Alice in Wonderland themed costume birthday party at the O Street Mansion in DC. The costumes were awesome — lots of bright colors, personality and trippy stuff. Of course, because I was there to capture the event I was checking out everyone and their costumes. And I remembered seeing this one couple with steampunk style. I thought to myself, now that’s a hot couple. And I knew that they had found their life partners. It was their energy, the way they looked at each other, I could tell. And I really liked their style.

I can’t remember if later that year one of the hostesses of the party mentioned that they had gotten engaged or if I just assumed it had happened but I thought of them about 2 months ago. Wondering if they were married now. I was planning on reaching out to that hostess to find out. Two or three days later Christine messaged me about engagement photos. Not sure who picked up on who’s vibe and energy but talk about manifesting and the universe at work!

Christine and Keith wanted engagement photos that showed off their fun and kick ass style. Yes! So we met up at Theodore Roosevelt Island and then headed into Old Town Alexandria to capture not just their style but how much they truly adore each other. You’ll see, these images don’t lie. This is the real deal. I barely had to direct them at all, they just did their thing, expressed their love for each other. Just like the poem says … they were in each other all along.

We had so much fun. Great graffiti, almost like it was painted just for them and this day. Magic love potion in the forest. Dancing fun to just be silly and laugh. Secrets whispered in exchange for giggles.

Thank you Christine and Keith. What a wonderful afternoon. I’m still feeling the love and I absolutely cannot wait to photograph your wedding. I’m grateful every single day for how blessed I am.
