This weather SUCKS. I tried really hard not to get my hopes up for a snow day (but I did anyway) and now I am obviously disappointed to not be on my couch in PJs. So all you peeps in NJ/NYC/Boston – enjoy your snow, we’ll be sitting here in DC enjoying COLD. RAIN. For today’s post we do have a beautiful engagement session from Love by Serena. So at least there’s that ;) Amanda & Neal had one part of their engagement pictures at The Winery at Bull Run and then the second part at H Mart (an Asian grocery store!). The bride to be is part Asian and they shop at H Mart, so they found it to be a perfectly fun & appropriate place to have their engagement pictures (love this!).

How they met:

Comet Ping Pong hosted a records swap & music event, which Amanda and Neal both attended.  In the sea of people, Neal stood out to Amanda because of his height and the bright, yellow Miles Davis t-shirt he was wearing at the time.  They both found each other in the crowd and began talking.  After speaking at length about music and records, they exchanged contact information. Not long after, he asked her on a date to his favorite pho restaurant at Eden Center in Falls Church, VA.

Capitol Romance: Lindsey & Gaurav’s Sugarloaf Mountain, Maryland Engagement

We are back with a beautiful Maryland engagement session by Michelle Zahn Photography [submitted via Two Bright Lights]. This adorable couple took to a beautiful winery, on Sugarloaf Mountain in Maryland for their engagement session. They snapped photos with some wine and amid the beautiful fall foliage, but I think my favorite part of this engagement session was when the couple practiced some yoga on the top of the mountain!

I love this first shot…

Lindsey & Gaurav’s Sugarloaf Mountain, MD Winery & Yoga Engagement Session

From the photographer:

Lindsay & Gaurav are set to get married September 2013, so we got some engagement photos this fall before the leaves fell off the trees. In talks with the couple, I discovered they both loved wine and yoga. We decided to incorporate both of their favorite activities into the engagement session – using the vineyard and mountain where they got engaged as a backdrop.

Following a relaxing start to the session with a glass of wine, we raced to the top of the mountain to beat the sunset, and just before it did, Lindsay & Guarav got in a quick session of yoga on top of the mountain.

Capitol Romance: Lola & Wale Virginia Winery Engagement Pictures

What a fantastic way to start off the week! Today’s Capitol Romance shoot is from Tracy with Timmester Photography.  Tracy is just such a cool and talented photographer in the area and you will quickly see that in the shoot you are about to feast your eyes on!

Enter Lola & Wale (uh. hello name envy.)

Tracy explains:

Meet Wale and Lola.  Wale is one of my talented second shooters, and he proposed to Lola, his wonderful girlfriend of years and years, in December.  It was great to hear the behind-the-scenes updates from Wale throughout the year as he planned the proposal – from where to buy the ring to how to pop the question.  Great guy that he is, Wale managed to create a memorable, romantic evening, and Lola was completely surprised and thrilled when he asked her!

Clearly, the good-looking, too-adorable-for-words couple deserves all the credit.  Seriously.  Couldn’t you just eat them up?  :)


Better yet, this awesome couple’s shoot took place at Barrel Oak Winery!! Why the “!!!”s you ask? Because I blogged about this fantastic place a while back as an awesome option for your bridal shower, e-shoot, or your wedding!! Be sure you saw the feature here. Ok, so here we go

Thanks again Tracy for sharing! Lola & Wale ~ all the best to you both!
