Let me just start off by saying I love this Old Town Alexandria engagement session SO much – I think it might have to do with this cute as can be couple! Allow me to introduce Hannah and Evan (otherwise known as Heaven since I accidentally called them that at one point during their shoot). Hannah and Evan are dear friends of mine and that made this shoot extra special.
About a year and a half ago, Evan told me he was going to marry Hannah. About a year ago, Evan told me about the ring he was going to propose to Hannah with – a family heirloom that meant a lot to her and her family. About six months ago, I figured out Evan’s proposal plans (and geeked out a little bit). About three months ago, Evan proposed to Hannah and I got to photograph it!
(In case you’re unaware, Evan is my boyfriend’s little brother. Ev proposed to Hannah the day Hannah moved to the area a few days after Christmas. A family dinner and gift exchange was planned, and Evan used his gifts to Hannah as a way to propose! He wrapped up 3 frames: one with a photo of her dad’s parents, one with a photo of her mom’s parents, and one with a letter that Evan wrote for her to read “on the day you say yes” – so sweet)!
Evan and Hannah have a relationship that is very gentle and kind – they’re both really silly, in a good way, and the way they care about one another is reflected in every action they take. Their happiness brings me, and so many around us, a lot of joy!
In planning their shoot – I tossed out a few locations, but they decided they wanted an old town Alexandria engagement session. As it’s one of my favorite locations, I happily obliged.
Upon arrival, we started shooting all around town. Old Town Alexandria is so charming… with the beautiful houses, cobblestone streets, and the waterfront – we couldn’t have asked for better views. ALSO, we couldn’t have asked for better weather! That summer sunshine was on full display for us, which we were all thankful for!
On to the images! I hope you enjoy this little peek into their Old Town engagement session!!
