Renee & Natie – engaged!

Yesterday on a very summer-like day, Renee and Natie braved the heat to meet me in Old Town Alexandria for their engagement session. I’m not going to lie, I’m kind of a mess when it’s over 90 degrees – melted makeup and flyaway frizzy hair – but Renee and Natie looked so fabulous the whole time. Proof of that:

I love how her fingers are tucked into his pocket! Too cute:

Heloooooooo gorgeous light, gorgeous couple!

I was so excited when Renee and Natie chose Old Town for their location – there are just so many fun little spots to shoot.

When I’m shooting and looking for good spots for an image, I have a habit of saying, “Oh, I like that doorway/wall/alley/etc.” It sounds funny out of context, but whenever I said it, Renee and Natie were great about humoring my every whim, including this next image when I said, “Oh I like that tree and those rocks.” Renee kicked off her shoes and they both climbed over the rocks underneath the tree, and then I grabbed one of my very favorite images from the day:

Thanks for hanging out with me yesterday, Renee and Natie! You were so great for sticking it out the heat. You know I’m super excited for your wedding in November – I can’t wait!
