I was having some issues getting the images together for this post – so I apologize in advance for how late it is. BUT I promise it’s totally worth it. Tiffany & Ben are awesome people. They are laid-back, cool as ice, and have a seriously rad love story. They are getting married this October at one of Baltimore’s coolest wedding venues (the Corradetti Glass Blowing Studio) and I am absolutely honored that they have chosen me to be their coordinator for their wedding day!
They are pretty much the epitome of my ideal couple and I am so excited to get to share their wedding day with both of them! But first, they had a super rad Washington DC engagement session with their photographer, Olivia Jacob Photography. They casually went around their NW Washington DC neighborhood to take some gorgeous images and they so perfectly capture just how calm, collected and IN LOVE these two are!
Tiffany & Ben’s Casual, Washington DC Engagement Session
About the couple:
We were born and raised in different hemispheres but somehow had similar upbringings that featured lots of trees, books, church and Led Zeppelin. The differences of a long standing itinerant lifestyle and a commitment to the town of one’s birth converged in 2011 when we both found ourselves living in NW/DC. We were brought together through equally contentious relationships with the internet, a similar appreciation for Doc Martin boots and common recognition of the genius of Nick Cave.
Our differences were evident from the start. One of us liked whisky, the other preferred whiskey. Somehow we overcame this. After a particularly compelling Bass Drum of Death show we fell upon the conclusion that we were onto something good. Whisky, whiskey and rock ensued. A vinyl collection started to grow.

The proposal story:
A year later, after dinner in our NW apartment on a regular Wednesday night, we got engaged while listening to a Swedish folk fiddle record. We didn’t feel the need to try and create a big moment; we want to get married because our day to day lives together are awesome.
On their DC engagement session:
We applied this same philosophy to our engagement photos. We love living in DC and wanted to capture that. Our photographer, Olivia Jacob, was awesome, flexible and totally understood what we were going for. The images are just us in our favorite places and regular hangouts. It turns out we have a similar dislike of posing for photographs.
Congratulations Tiffany & Ben! I cannot wait for your October wedding. A special thanks again to Olivia Jacob Photography for sharing her images!
