I don’t have enough good things to say about these two! So kind, so funny, so sweet…their engagement session was a blast to photograph. I didn’t hurt that it was in my back yard of Reston Town Center, either! The session started out great and I even got to photograph them with their puppy, Harper, who is a bag full of adorable and then some. RTC was where they first met so it’s full circle for them coming back at their engagement. After we’d gone around the town center, we decided to head to the woods in my neighborhood just across the street, for a little more of a nature feel. We knew we were running a tight timeline against Mother Nature and a storm front coming in but we didn’t know HOW tight. Within 5 minutes it went from bright and sunny to dark and forboding. I took a look up at the sky and saw THE most amazing cloud line with the storm front and quickly directed them to the perfect spot. As they walked it began to rain. Within the 10 seconds it took to get the photo it had started down into a FULL DOWNPOUR! They were such good sports about it. We all (me, them, Harper, and their friend who was there to help with Harper) made a fully mad dash sprint for the safety of my garage, but not before we were all soaked! Being as awesome as they are, they laughed it off and now it’s a great story to tell along with the amazing storm front photo (that everyone thinks is totally photoshopped but isn’t). I owe these guys a drink after all that! I can’t wait until their wedding this Spring.
