Capitol Romance: Vida & Chris’ Waterside Engagement Session in Alexandria, Northern Virginia

We’re back this afternoon with a lovely little waterside engagement session in Alexandria, VA by Kelly Ewell Photography, submitted via Two Bright Lights. Vida & Chris have a beautiful love story, with the cutest proposal [and an awesome capture of Chris popping the question, in real time] down by the Capitol Building!

Vida shares some details on their engagement shoot:

 Our shoot was in Old Town, Alexandria. It’s where we first met and where we love to hang out. It will also be where we live in our first home after we’re married! Since the engagement session was in fall, we wanted to incorporate pumpkins. We love carving pumpkins and like to have a little competition every year with our jack-o-lanterns. Also, since we spend the majority of our summers watching the Nats play, we knew we had to include some curly W pride too!

 Vida & Chris’ Waterside, Alexandria VA Engagement Session

How They Met:

 The first time I saw Chris was one night when we were out at a bar with a group of mutual friends. I was immediately interested but didn’t get the chance to talk to him! Luckily for me we were re-introduced at a friend’s birthday party a few weeks later. We exchanged numbers and, a few days later, we had our first date where Chris made me a delicious dinner. Best meal I’ve every had :) We were both pretty smitten after that and have been dating ever since!

Lindsey & Beto’s Washington DC Engagement at the Franciscan Monastery

Mondays: the constant struggle to accept that the weekend is over and a long work week is ahead of me.

Once I finally get my butt in gear and start blogging – it’s amazing how much my productivity grows and I am suddenly much happier than when I got out of my car and began my walk into the office :)

For this morning’s engagement session, we have the lovely Lindsey & Beto, a stunning couple with a common faith that decided to use the Franciscan Monastery in NE DC [my hood! what what?] for their Washington, DC engagement session. The shoot was shot beautifully by Evelyn Alas Photography [the colors in this session are downright dreamy!] and submitted via Two Bright Lights.

Lindsey & Beto’s Franciscan Monastery Engagement Session in NE Washington DC

How they met:

Lindsey and Beto met three years ago, at a dinner party through a mutual friend. Despite many attempts by the friend to introduce Lindsey to Beto, they finally meet that evening at the worst time.

Lindsey was ill and not her bubbly self, but that didn’t dissuade Beto to take an interest in her. He even drove her home that night since she wasn’t feeling well and the rest is history!

About the couple:

Lindsey has always had a deep love for latin culture. Beto is Mexican and they both enjoy learning and traveling. Since Beto and Lindsey are Catholic, they couldn’t think of a more appropriate place for their engagement session, at the Franciscan Monastery in NE Washington. D.C. Lindsey and Beto look forward in getting married on August 18th.
