Hey that rhymes! (Also, I am positive that is not the first time they have probably heard that, so I apologize). Anyway ~ today’s blog feature includes a beautiful engagement session in Alexandria, VA captured by Jeff Simpson photo!

I just love this first shot ~ it makes me feel like we stumbled upon this couple, so in love and intimate. They look SO naturally in-love, it’s adorable.

From the couple:

Matt and Cat are our names, we are a young couple from the Midwest and West who live in the Washington DC area. When searching for a photographer and a location to have pictures, we wanted some place that was special to us. We wanted a beautiful and natural setting with a photographer who understands the natural look we wanted. With our photographer’s help we were able to find some unique and special areas to shoot some beautiful pictures. As a couple we frequent Old Town for it’s restaurants, coffee, shopping and over all atmosphere. It is one of the most romantic areas in Northern Virginia and the greater Washington DC metro area. Our wedding will be in Colorado (the bride’s home state). We wanted pictures to show nature and a casual elegance. Our wedding will have a rustic chic theme. I believe our engagement pictures did just that! We will treasure these pictures and the fun memories of taking the photos for years to come!

I think Jeff did a fabulous job of capturing exactly what they wanted, don’t you think?

this is one of my favorites from the set. I’m not even sure why. I think it’s just the water below them and the way they are on the dock. beautiful.

so adorable. so in love.

love, love, LOVE this middle of the street shot! those cobblestone streets in Alexandria just look AWESOME here with Matt & Cat.

I saved the best for last ~ this is my favorite. The sun setting, the birds flying, the kicked up foot (that doesn’t even look planned) … it looks like the end to a romantic comedy or something! I love it!

Congratulations Matt & Cat … may the rest of your wedding planning be just as awesome & lovely as your engagement shoot! Thank you again to the wonderful Jeff Simpson Photo (submitted via Two Bright Lights) for sharing your images!!



  1. I wish I would have hired you for my wedding. I wanted this style and tied to convey it to my photographer, but he just didn’t have the vision.
