Capitol Romance: Jodi & Rich’s Nationals Stadium Engagement Session in DC

We’re back this afternoon with another engagement session ~ this time from Liz Maryann Photography [submitted via Two Bright Lights].

The bride to be, Jodi, is a charming radiation therapist from Virginia Beach, and the groom to be, Rich, is a fun-loving software engineer from Washington, DC. They decided to shoot at DC’s Nationals Stadium because that is where they had their first date!

Their love story:

From Jodi’s perspective: “I would come home on the weekends from having a full-time schedule at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA. I would go home to earn some cash flow by working at Harmony Dental Group and Matthew’s Hallmark inside Lynnhaven Mall. I somehow crammed working on the weekends and a semi-social life in less than 48 hours while in Virginia Beach.

After a typical crazy Saturday shift at the mall, counting down the minutes ’til you clocked out was always a habit of mine. Before clocking out that afternoon, a large rowdy group came in on a mission. Dolled up in my fancy Hallmark apron, khaki pants & white button up I noticed this really tall boy.



 First thought: ”Why is this guy wearing socks with basketball slippers?” Weirdest thing to me. I asked if he and his two brothers needed any help and Rich replied, “I am not from here, we are from Maryland & kind of in a rush to get to this baptism.”

After taking the time to help them and having small chit chat, we put together that we would be attending the same baptism that evening. It turns out his cousin’s son Rachris (which in the filipino culture Rich would say “nephew”) is married to my cousin Agnes.

Capitol Romance: Katrina & Mike’s Georgetown DC Engagement Session

I couldn’t bring myself to post on Friday with everything that happened in Connecticut. I am still having some problems getting fully back into blogging (mostly social media) but I know that life is full of ups and downs, and sharing love stories like the two I have today are part of the healing process and moving on with life.

So, that being said, first up today is the engagement session I meant to share last week. It features Katrina & Mike in the beautiful Georgetown neighborhood, shot by Jennifer Gulley Photography. I instantly fell in love with Katrina’s fashion sense when Jennifer sent the session over to me.

Mike & Katrina’s Georgetown, Washington DC Engagement Session

How they met:

Mike & I met while he was living in Annapolis. I had gone up there for a concert with my roommate, and we went out to one of the local bars after where mike was with a bunch of his friends. Mike caught my attention (I thought he was so handsome!) and we also were both cheering on the phillies in the playoffs. We both kept stealing glances at each other & kept getting caught doing it!! Eventually we struck up a conversation & danced & chatted the night away. After that night we saw each other every weekend and every day in between that we could until we got engaged.

Happy Monday Romancers – check back this afternoon for ANOTHER beautiful e-sess. Let’s all get through this week together, shall we?
