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

3 Comments

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!

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!
