This stunning and picturesque farm was perfect for Caitlin and Tim's summer engagement session. The dusk lighting set the mood for a romantic and pleasant evening. The Poplar Barn, located on the property is a 200 year old barn, thats rustic charm was a perfect backdrop for their engagement photos. The owner of Sylvanside Farm, Jeff, asked if we'd like to bring out Jack, the Clydesdale, out for a photo and Caitlin lit up! This gorgeous and scenic farm was excellent for this engagement session.
An early summer engagement shoot on the National Mall was a perfect fit for these two lovebirds. Though it can get crowded if you don't stop by at the perfect time, we love the National Mall for elegant engagement portraits that can be as dressed up or casual as you like. Everyone looks great in front of the reflecting pool and at the Lincoln Memorial, but this morning we took a little side trip to get some awesome dramatic shots in front of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial as well.
Located just a short drive outside of Manhattan, Ramsey Golf and Country Club in New Jersey is just about as pretty as a golf course can get. The historic club property has its own formal English garden and lakeside beach, and the club itself is set in a 19th-century stone castle. The castle sports an ancient Norman architecture design and mirrors England's Ramsey Abbey. Lovely views from the interior look out onto the surrounding greenery and the elegant stone features mixed with the foliage would make you hardly believe you're in New Jersey.
This Maryland mountain is beautiful regardless of the season, but summer is particularly picturesque, with the lush greenery, knee-high ferns and moss-covered rocks. Not to mention, when you finally make your way through the forest, you're treated to spectacular views of the valleys below and the mountains beyond. However, you'll see that the surrounding areas near Sugarloaf also offer some differing backdrops, including quaint country roads and untarnished summer fields. It all comes together for some gorgeous engagement photos.
The Woodlands at Algonkian, in its regional park setting, is a great choice for a beautiful, rustic-chic wedding in Loudoun County. There are several cabins available for the bridal party before the wedding and several choices across the property for not only the ceremony but also bridal photos. Throughout, you'll find fitting wood and stone touches, and the reception space features a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows covered in twinkle lights.
