There are some clients that I know I'm destined to photograph. Jess is definitely one of those clients! Only a few minutes after meeting her, we realized we had so much in common. The glaring similarities right off the bat were that we both have gluten allergies and both try and experiment with gluten-free baking, which is really tough . Secondly, she and I both loved the same restaurant near the Courthouse Metro in Arlington, Toscana, which used to have the best gluten-free pasta options (and has since switched management and now offers no gluten-free options. We are both livid over it.). The most recent similarity we discovered is our love for Parks and Recreation! She and Matt (her awesome fiancé) are even dressing up as Ron Swanson and bacon for Halloween (you must watch the show to get this, but holy crap, it's the best idea ever!). So, needless to say, I was excited to meet up with Jess and Matt for their recent engagement session over in Capitol Hill! The day we went out to the Capitol was just beautiful! Everything was very bright and sunny, with a cool wind in the air and a little fall color. Jess and Matt looked amazing, and Jess had even coordinated their outfits to be red, white and blue, but without being obvious. I honestly had no idea that's what she was going for and I thought she did a great job with it! As I'm sure you'll notice, they're just a really adorable couple. They're incredibly fun while being laid back, and just mesh so well together. They had the day planned out perfectly so we could do most of the photos at the Capitol, do an outfit change at Jessica's work, and then head over to the Georgetown area to meet up with their super-cute dogs! I can't say enough how great this photo session was, and I hope you enjoy the photos. Thank you so much, Jess and Matt, for an amazing session! I cannot wait for your DC wedding next year (and to eat some really amazing gluten-free food! Yay!). Enjoy!
Thanks for looking!
