D + E 's Engagement Session | Meridian Hill Park, Adams Morgan, and Home | Washington, DC
Wow! It's been a LONG time since we've had a moment to sit down and put together a blog! Brace yourselves - not only is this a SUPER sweet engagement session, but we also have TONS of blogging to do in the coming weeks (we have had a whole lot of weddings, engagement sessions, and more this summer)!
Congratulations to Danielle and Eddie (and Luke)!
Imagine coming home from a stressful week at work to your loved one on one knee, holding a ring AND a puppy!
When we heard this story, we totally fell in love with these two (or should we say three)!
Danielle came home one evening to a brand new puppy, flowers, candles, and an engagement ring from the love of her life. Is there anything better than that?!
The screenshots below were pulled from the bride-to-be's instagram because we just LOVE this story!
It wasn’t even a question that Danielle and Eddie wanted their puppy, Luke, to be a part of their engagement session - and we couldn't have been more excited to include this spunky pup!
We love an engagement session that is sentimental; that’s exactly what this couple had planned. They chose Meridian Hill Park because it is a special spot for these two; they often stroll through the park with Luke. It's a quiet little haven in the hustle and bustle of the city.
While we photographed at Meridian Hill Park, Danielle’s mom acted as the designated leash-holder when Luke wasn't being photographed. She even came into the city to be part of this fun day! So perfect. We loved it!
What's an engagement session without the "I'm a model, you know what I mean, and I do my little turn on the catwalk"?
We wandered through the park until we found the perfect spot for a little break. Danielle and Eddie spread out a blanket that Eddie's grandmother had made.
Annnnd of course we had to make the Luke-face!
We back-tracked to Danielle and Eddie’s home to take some more intimate photos and pop some bubbly on the porch. These two couldn’t have been more fun. The plan was to photograph a little more of a champagne "explosion", but without even trying to pop the cork, the first one flew out; Eddie’s reaction was absolutely priceless. We thought it was even more fun than if we had been able to pop the cork the way the couple had hoped!
We also snapped some photographs in their apartment. They toasted with champagne glasses that Danielle's mother and father used at their own wedding!
We decided to venture back out and reminisce about how these two me. It was hysterical, romantic, and totally adorable!
Our last stop was the location where these two met - playing kickball
Right next to this Adams Morgan kickball field, there is a mural that says, “Everyday I see something new.” It is totally fitting for these two considering they met there, and it was the start of their relationship!
We cannot wait for Danielle and Eddie's wedding! We just know it's going to be AMAZING!
