abby + russ // engagements // washington, d.c.


making the transition from primarily colorado-based photographers to washington-dc-based destination wedding photographers/videographers has been one wonderful adventure. we have loved keeping our roots and heading out west at every given opportunity while exploring a whole new host of beautiful landscapes, lovely clients, and interesting markets. we love being out east. can we say that one more time?! we love the east coast. and we love shooting engagement photographs in washington, d.c.

thus, we were so excited when russ + abby contacted us about shooting their virginia wedding and ¬†engagement session in downtown dc. they’re such kind, down-to-earth people with a really sweet love. it has been such a pleasure to get to know them, and we can’t wait to get to know them further when we shoot their wedding this fall!

we did this awesome, marathon engagement session with these guys because we wanted to get a nice combinations of locations and city vibes. but they’re almost like two completely different sessions! so we figure it’s just easier to split the post into two. we spent the first half of their engagement session at the iconic union station, and then we headed to shoot the rest of their engagement session at meridian hill park. if you’ve never been there, go! it made us feel like we were in europe again, with relaxed vibes, beautiful architecture, gorgeous florals, and hosts of people enjoying the nice weather. you might fall in love with it as much as we did!

aren’t they the cutest?! and abby’s dress… the best! anna may or may not have had to go out and purchase the same one in a different print to shoot weddings in… tune in for the second part of their shoot, and soon!
