I really am a sucker for bookstore engagement pictures! I just love the way the bookstores frame the couple and backdrop a bunch of mismatched stacked books, with a multitude of colors, gives the engagement pictures. It also helps though when the couple is SUPER adorable and the images are beautifully captured! Oh and their love story – it’s adorable, involving the adventures of a squirrel and a fake goblin king.
Matt & Katie’s Georgetown, DC Bookstore Engagement Session
How they met:
Katie and Matt met in DC where they work together as technical writers. Although their office is small, they somehow managed to go several months with little interaction. A situation that changed completely one day when Matt ate lunch with a squirrel named Jerry. Based on this chance encounter, Matt created an entire world revolving around Jerry and his fight against the Goblin King; he took Katie on secretive quests and adventures throughout DC, planting paper goblins in suspicious locations and making regular visits to Jerry for squirrel updates. Along the way a friendship formed during these outings, filled with late night discussions and car rides full of inquisitive chatter.
Soon, their friendship turned into a fun and adventures romance, brimming with laughter and surprises. This romance led to where they are today – planning for a wedding and a lifetime together, and knowing it will be an adventure they’re both excited to embark on.
