It’s Monday, but a holiday – so hopefully most of you are out participating in a Day of Service, or enjoying the couch, or still had to go to the office and instead are thinking about how awesome it would be to NOT be there. I am luckily surfing the couch today and catching up on some admin things and blogging. I spent the weekend mostly in a car, traveling up to PA for a surprise 30th birthday for one of my longest friends, and then stopping for a quick visit in Philly on the way back to DC. I am excited to be in DC these next few weekends while Andy & I continue work on our upstairs floors and getting the nursery ready!

For today I have a sweet little engagement session from CapRo newbie, Boraie Photography. Mohamed shares the adorable e-sess of Kate & Patrick, two athletes that fell in love and love to run together. I love how they included running in their engagement pictures! Check it out.

Kate and Patrick met in August 2013. Their second date was a walk around Roosevelt Island. A little over a year later, they thought it fitting to take their engagement pictures there. Kate and Patrick are both avid athletes, and going out for a run is one of their favorite activities to do together. They wanted their engagement session to capture this aspect of their life as well. Kate and Patrick look forward to marrying next summer.

Heather & Scott’s Washington, DC Engagement Session on Roosevelt Island

I am an absolute sucker for dogs. My sister and her husband just adopted an adorable coonhound mix and now I get to blog this adorable Mutt, Brady, with his loving masters, Heather & Scott. Andy & I also babysat a co-workers dog this weekend, and watching my mini-doxie, Sadie, play with another dog was really giving me the itch to adopt another.

But back to Heather & Scott – the couple snuck in a last minute engagement session in DC’s Roosevelt Park and brought there pup along. Including a dog in your wedding day or engagement session ALWAYS makes for some fun photos and some good, clean natural laughter. Make sure you click through to read the proposal story too – it includes an iPad. Love a good IT proposal ;)

Thanks to Kelly Ewell Photography & Two Bright Lights for this adorable Washington, DC engagement session.

Heather & Scott’s Washington, DC Engagement Session at Roosevelt Park

From the photographer:

When your job is to be a planner, you know everything will be set out in fine detail and no stone will be unturned when putting your wedding together. I’m sure it adds a whole new level of attention to detail though, when it comes to your own big event. Especially when you’re doing it from a distance.

As Heather puts the polishing details together for her wedding to Scott in just a few weeks up in Philadelphia, she didn’t think she would have time for an engagement session with her photographer there. But with little pockets of time open while they were still here in the DC area, she rang me up to see if we could make something happen.
