I met Ali & Jack on a rainy Friday at their DC apartment. Jack had an extensive music collection and was proofing some pizza dough on their small dinning room table and Ali had just made her way back from work. I looked around their apartment as saw various relics from their travels, which was something that they loved to do together whether it be for work or on personal trips. Ali had a smile that would make her eyes squint into two tiny slits and Jack has a contagious laughter. Both are warm and inviting people and together they made me feel as if we had all known each other for years.
We had almost rescheduled our session, but decided to go museum hopping to shelter from the rain instead. So we weaved in and out of a few museums and even got to see some art while we were at it. Once the rain slowed down we worked our way to the Jefferson Memorial to photograph under the rotunda and utilized the white granite to help illuminate our photographs to help with the fading light.
Tomorrow, these two are getting married in my neck of the woods. In the fields of West Virginia at a family friend’s house. Instead of rain, we will feel the cool Autumn air brush against our skin and watch the sun set over a field of soybeans, a juxtaposition from our DC engagement session.
