beth & david | engagement

Beth and David are great.  I first met them both during a torrential downpour at a Caribou Coffee in DC.  After chatting for a while I knew that we would be friends.  Come to find out, Beth photographs weddings too!  And David has a son named Thomas who happens to be the same age as my little boy.  That worked out to our advantage during their engagement session in Old Town Alexandria. We did photos with Thomas and then when he was bored out of his mind, he joined my son Sio and husband Sean on the playground while Beth, David and I did photos with just them.  We all had a lot of fun.

The highlight of the afternoon for me was when David climbed in the window of that brick building, which I think is a parking garage, and then Beth fallowed him into the window next to him.  Believe me, it is way more precarious than it looks!  I was yelling “Don’t fall!” as I snapped away.  Thankfully, no one fell or got hurt.

I am really looking forward to photographing their wedding next April.  Thomas is going to look so cute in a little suit!
