There are few places as iconic, memorable and historic as the National Mall in Washington, D.C. For those looking for a historic, elegant or just architecturally outstanding spot for their engagement photos, there's little reason to look elsewhere. Though you'd think the popular spots would be difficult for an engagement shoot, Shawn and Sarah's photo session was a breeze, made all the more perfect by the lovely couple's unique touches.
Equal parts rustic and elegant, the Glasgow Farm is a perfect setting for any country-chic event. The venue is still a working farm today, and the event space, the Family Home and the Old Barn, both built in 1900, reflect their historic origins. Full of charm, this fabulous wedding venue was a joy to photograph.
Alexandria's Wilkes Street Tunnel is an important part of the city's past, but it will be forever remembered in this couple's minds as one of the stepping stones to their future. The fantastic spot they chose for their engagement shoot, the tunnel provided a little bit of vintage romance that, combined with their personal styles, resulted in great photos with a dose of casual, urban class.
High school sweethearts Tina and Chris will be getting married at the Old Silk Mill in Fredericksburg, Virginia, and so they took their engagement shoot to their wedding venue. They didn't stop there, though. A cute, vintage-style ice cream parlor also offered a sweet setting to snap a few photos of the couple having a little fun.
Lauren and Alan decided to take their engagement shoot right to the place where they first met -- the baseball diamonds at Wakefield Park in Annandale, Va! The casual setting was the perfect place for the two to show off their fun-loving personalities, while also getting in some sweet shots during the golden glow of the twilight hour.
The beautiful setting of Burke Lake Park in Fairfax Station, Va., was the perfect backdrop for Victor and Kaitlin's engagement shoot! The lake, charming train station and tracks, and colorful carousel all worked together to provide a venue that was one part vintage chic, one part rustic and woodsy.
The BARN at Serra Valley Farms Wedding
The BARN at Serra Valley Farms is an amazing rustic wedding venue surrounded by tall enchanting Oak trees. The barn itself sits back at the rear of the property and is quite disguised until you make your way to the end of the long stone driveway giving it a private party feel in Mt. Airy, MD.
The Glasgow Farm Wedding
The Glasgow Farm is our favorite venue. I'm not quite sure what it is but you get a feeling like you are home when you're there. It has that warm feel to it and country laid back vibe. The beautiful farm house is such a unique, rustic, antique place to get ready. It has so many nooks and crannies which as photographers is music to our ears or cameras for that matter. The Glasgow's manage the farm, so don't be surprised if you and a chicken cross paths during cocktail hour. Everything is so very genuine about this place and we love that.
Westfields Golf Club Wedding
Westfields Golf Club is a beautiful venue in Clifton, VA. It is a stunning golf course which sits behind an amazing lake and hosts a gorgeous club house. The club house has beautiful windows across its entire back wall gracefully letting the golden hour light shine through. A phenomenal place for a wedding.
