Every day I’m so thankful that I get to photograph beautiful people in beautiful locations. This Brookside Gardens engagement session made me feel so #blessed.
Sasha and James met in Law School (talk about an intimidating power couple) and are both so kind and fun to be around. While I’ve known Sasha for a long time (her younger sister and I are HS pals), I didn’t really ~know~ her if you understand what I’m saying. It was really great to spend some time learning about her and James and their relationship!
James proposed to Sasha around Christmastime, which was also closing in on their 5-year anniversary! So exciting! They’re planning to get married in Florida but wanted to take some engagement photos in the DC area first.
They opted to have their engagement session at Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, which served as the perfect backdrop for their images!
Also, for the first time ever, I had a client bring a camera along to the shoot! James was recently gifted a new camera and between locations, Sasha and I would chitchat and James would take photos of how all the beauty Brookside had to offer! I thought it was awesome and a little funny because he kept falling behind and would have to catch up to Sasha and me!
Anyways, enjoy their Brookside gardens engagement photos – and like how stylish are these two!?
Fun fact: Sasha’s a big fan of Kate Middleton and referenced the royals a few times when we were discussing outfits for the engagement session.
