I am in LOVE with this first shot! First off, I love this unique, “non-monuments”, Washington DC engagement shoot location. U St. is such a cool area ~ so I was super pumped when Danielle sent this to me!!
Now, let’s meet Chelsea & Ben:
They met while students at the School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins. Ben was lost in the hallway and Chelsea had just gotten into a fight with her adviser and was kicked out a meeting into that very same hallway. Ben asked for directions and the rest is history. They live in DC now while Chelsea finishes her PhD and Ben works on the hill as a policy wonk. One of my favorite parts of the session was when Ben, in describing Chelsea, said, “Not only is she beautiful and intelligent, but she’s willing to try anything. And she loves boxing.” It’s just so perfect for them. As far as wedding plans, right now they’re unsure what they’re going to do. They had thought about having something here in the states with the ceremony and the reception, but then thought maybe they would prefer a courthouse wedding followed by a long world domination tour of Southeast Asia. They’re still deciding which fits best for them!

This is one of my favorite shots. The real orange in Chelsea’s hand, against the painted oranges & the colors are just blowing my mind. I love it.
Also, another one of my favorites. I love the contrast in colors and all the dreamy red brick. Such an awesome showcase of DC!
Congratulations Chelsea & Ben! Best of luck on the rest of your planning and your upcoming wedding!!! A special thank you to Danielle Cover Photography for sharing her images!
