Callie and Chris- A Harpers Ferry, West Virginia Engagement Session

A while back, I photographed Katy & Drew's engagement session in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. One of the backdrops we used was the St. John's Episcopal Church Ruins. Well, that session led Chris to me even BEFORE he proposed to Callie! 
Callie and Chris met in Hawaii (where Callie now lives), but they have spent much of their relationship apart since Chris was stationed in Georgia. Ever since the possibility of becoming engaged, Callie wanted to have the engagement shoot in front of church ruins. This lead to asking around, lots of google searching, the proposal, and finally the shoot! She loved the idea of having the contrast of them in formal wear in front of the ruins. Callie found both of her gorgeous dresses on Rent the Runway! She channeled her former modeling career for the engagement session and looked absolutely killer. Chris didn't look too bad himself. Ha! 

A HUGE thank you to David Aspinwall for being my assistant and light holder extraordinaire and helping me not freaking out about driving next to a sheer drop into the river while getting us lost and then unlost. 

Here are a few of my favorites are below:

Pratik and Ronak- Lincoln Memorial, Washington, D.C Surprise Proposal

Last Friday morning, was not the warmest of mornings at all, but you could find me hanging out in front of the Lincoln Memorial in DC. I was there to photograph waiting to spot Pratik and his girlfriend, Ronak. They had flown in from Texas the evening before and were spending Valentine's Day/President's Day weekend in DC. Pratik wanted to kick it off by proposing to Ronak, and he did just that, AND she said YES! 

Here are a some of my favorites from the surprise proposal:
