Considering my husband was an astrophysics major in college, I sometimes joke that when I’m with his friends my life feels like an episode of the Big Bang Theory. I am definitely Penny in said episode. All their jokes go over my head and I just kind of smile and nod. . . Long Story short, I’m used to being around people who are WAY smarter than I am. So, when I first met Michelle & Ian for our consultation, I felt super comfortable!
Michelle & Ian both graduated from MIT (yes, MIT)! Michelle is a Math major who just finished her Masters (!!!) and Ian is an aerospace engineer who holds 2 masters degrees! Can we say POWER COUPLE?! I just adore these two! They are so perfect for each other in so many ways. It was easy to tell from the start that they are genuinely in love. When we scheduled their engagement shoot this weekend in Old Town Alexandria, VA, I couldn’t have been more excited!
We had such a great time exploring Old Town together. We started near City Hall and made our way to the waterfront. I was happy to have found a few new spots along the way. It’s always nice when you can change up a location you’re used to shooting in! I felt an instant creativity boost when we found the new spots.
Michelle & Ian – Thank you for trusting me to capture this special time in your lives – and also for posing next to trash bags because the wall was so cool! haha. You probably thought I was a tad crazy, but I hope you’re excited about how the photos turned out! I can’t wait till April!
