Scott & Vicky || Washington, DC Engagement Photography

April 25, 2017

I spent a beautiful Saturday afternoon with Scott and Vicky for their Washington, DC engagement session exploring a few iconic locations- including the DC War Memorial, Constitution Gardens, and the Reflection Pool overlooking the Washington Monument- as well as the slightly off the beaten path Teddy Roosevelt Island.

When Scott first contacted me to talk about their wedding plans, he emphasized that he really wanted their wedding to be “for Vicky- she’s always thinking about other people and taking care of others, so I just want to have this wedding for her, so that she’s the one being taken care of for a change.” What a sweet sentiment that truly embodies the giving nature that is marriage. With that in mind, I knew that we’d have fun during their engagement portraits, but I was blown away at how their loving relationship translated in their photos. I loved watching Scott and Vicky interact with each other throughout the session- the joy that they find in one another’s company is infectious, and I found myself constantly bursting into laughter with them throughout the engagement session.

One of my favorite parts of the session was having Scott and Vicky show me a spot on Roosevelt Island that overlooks the water. Living nearby, Scott comes to Roosevelt Island frequently as part of his morning runs, and finds comfort in the peace and quiet, so close to some of DC’s most bustling areas. After he met Vicky, he showed her this place, and it quickly became important to both of them. As he explained it, “This used to be my spot. Now it’s our spot.”

I can’t wait to photograph Scott and Vicky’s wedding at President Lincoln’s Cottage in DC in June!
