The Hirshhorn is one of the best places in DC to do your engagements pictures, especially if you are a total typography nerd like me. It’s weather-proof, right on the Mall, and gives you some of the most modern and FUN engagement pictures. Kathy & Doff actually had their first date at the Hirshhorn, so really for them, it was a no brainer. Thanks to eKate Photography for submitting this lovely DC engagement session our way!
Kathy & Doff’s Washington DC Engagement Pictures at the Hirshhorn Museum
How they met:
How do a freshly minted Biochemistry Ph.D. and a busy chef meet in this day and age? The internet of course. In 2012, after a can-your-schedule-please-meet-and-compromise-with-my-schedule coffee meeting a friendship that turned into a relationship began. Our first official date was at the Poste Moderne Brasserie at the Hotel Monaco DC, followed by The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.
For the Thanksgiving holiday, we decided to spend a couple of days at a local bed & breakfast in Columbia, MD (no family, no friends, just us). The goal was relaxation. I was banned from bringing my laptop. We lounged and managed to get out for a long walk. On November 29, 2013, Doff got down on one knee in the middle of our room (after our walk) and asked me to marry him. I was totally surprised. A hard feat for anyone to accomplish in my life. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect moment for just him and I.
Congratulations Kathy & Doff! Best of luck with your wedding planning. Thanks again to eKate Photography for sharing her images for this DC engagement feature. Check back this afternoon for a recap from our Capturing Love panel event from a couple weeks ago!
