A new to Capitol Romance photographer is sharing a gorgeous DC engagement with us today! The beautiful love of Grant & Kelly, set amidst the Cherry Blossoms and then in the couple’s home neighborhood of Adams Morgan. Audra Wrisley Photography wrote to us, excited to submit her session which featured two “Very DC” elements: blossoms in the Basin and good ole AdMo.
We get a lot of cherry blossom engagements, but some shine above the rest – and obviously the fact that the session involved an ADORABLE pup named Ellie, totally swayed my vote on featuring ;) Special thanks again to Audra Wrisley for sharing her images!
Grant & Kelly’s Cherry Blossoms Washington, DC Engagement
^I totally can’t get enough of this DC mural. Or Ellie appearing to “look away” as her masters smooch. LOVE.
How they met:
Grant and I met in Washington, DC in 2009, after returning from Peace Corps in Guatemala and Ukraine, respectively. We saw each other for the first time at the Peace Corps Career Center, where we both used to go there to work on our resumes and job applications. After a couple weeks of seeing each other there and at other events around DC, Grant asked me on our first date. The following Saturday, he took me to dinner in Chinatown and to the National Portrait Gallery.

Almost four years later, in December 2012, Grant took me back to the Portrait Gallery and asked me to be his wife. We have chosen to get married in Washington, DC because it is where we met and made our life together.
Congratulations Kelly & Grant! Thank you for sharing your love story with us and a special thanks to Audra Wrisley Photography for sharing her beautiful images of today’s DC engagement feature!
