Oh Monday. Sometimes I can handle you and other days all I want to do is punch you in the face. Today is the punch-facing kind of Monday. I had a wonderful weekend in NJ with my family, celebrating my sister & her husband’s baby shower. But between the humidity, the late bed time, these allergies of mine, and the fact that it’s Monday – well, let’s just say I need this DC engagement session more so than most Mondays.
Allie & Dylan’s DC Engagement Pictures at Tryst & Meridian Hill Park
I have the fortunate duty to not only get to share this adorable couple’s engagement session but to be working their wedding this Fall too! Allie & Dylan are amazing clients and I love everything about their wedding so far. I can’t wait to share that day with them in October :)
How we met:
We met in freshmen year Irish History class at Dartmouth. It was a course reserved for upperclassmen, but Allie and I separately petitioned to get into the class. We were the only freshmen in the class. I was also the cashier at the campus convenience store on Sunday nights when Allie and her friends would come in to get snacks before Grey’s Anatomy aired. It took me a few weeks to finally introduce myself, but 8.5 years later, we’re getting married.

How we got engaged:
We went ring shopping together before the proposal because my track record for buying Allie jewelry she loves (and might want to wear for the rest of her life) isn’t stellar. Given the lack of surprise about the ring and the impending proposal, I secretly flew in Allie’s best friends from Boston and sent Allie on a scavenger hunt around the city to find these friends at some of our favorite places in DC (the zoo, Hank’s Oyster Bar, the fish market by the Navy Yard, etc.) I eventually proposed by Jefferson Memorial on the Tidal Basin.
Congratulations Allie & Dylan! Cannot wait for your wedding day this Fall. Thanks Aimee Custis Photography for sharing your images of this adorable DC engagement session!
