Ever thought you’d meet the love of your life at a college party? Ever thought you’d meet the love of your life while playing beer pong at a college party? Truth is, love can be found everywhere (seriously had to refrain from quoting Love Actually on that one), even at the pong table ;) Sure, that’s where Molly and Daniel first met, but it’s certainly not what defines them as one of the most wonderful couples I’ve had the chance to meet this year. Molly’s sweet, bubbly personality and joy for life makes you feel like great friends just moments after meeting her, and Daniel brings the perfect balance with his quiet-at-first personality. But once you’re able to sit down with him over some good happy hour craft brews, you’ll realize that he’s actually a physics genius and an incredibly hard worker. Put them together and you get one great pair and a whole lot of adorable love.
Old Town Alexandria is so special to me. Everything about it oozes charm and the historic homes with their painted doors and gas lanterns are the definition of envy-inducing. It’s the perfect place to explore for engagement sessions and I’m so lucky to have it right on my front doorstep! I’m almost certain that I could photograph in Old Town every week and never get sick of the beautiful homes, lovely trees and gorgeous riverside views. So when Molly shared that Old Town was an important landmark for Daniel and herself, we knew pretty quickly that this was the sweet spot for them! Though M+D met their junior year in Blacksburg, their first date actually took place in Old Town while they were both home on Thanksgiving break. Not to mention, Old Town was the also the site of Daniel’s proposal! Swoon swoon swoon.
We had all of the most beautiful bits of foliage at our disposal for Daniel and Molly’s session, and I was loving it! Enjoy some highlights from our Old Town session!
Ookay you two, starting out with a bang, are we?
Those colors!! This couple!
And then I died. A round of applause for Daniel and his ring choosing abilities, yes?
Somehow Old Town bottles up all of it’s most beautiful light and hides it in these adorable alleys. I couldn’t love it more.
Sparkle for days.
Daniel!! If that’s not the GQ look I don’t know what is. Looking good, man!
May or may not have been attacked by a gang of seagulls. It was fine.
Molly is just a little ticklish ;)
