Morning engagement sessions mean the first thing I see when I step outside is darkness. Flashes of headlights, dark blue skies, and as the session draws near, the sun creeps up a little at a time. The sidewalks are always empty, there’s parking on the streets, and I get the photograph (and often meet for the first time) two people who plan to spend the rest of their lives together. There’s no more inspiring way to start my day.
Chelsey and JR are from my home state, West Virginia. They found each other in med school, studying to become doctors, they listen to amazing music, and they’re the proud parents of a bundle of joy French Bulldog (which, if you know me a tall, you know I can’t not love any dog with a flat face). They were hilarious, even at 7 a.m. and I loved that they came out to DC for a sunrise session so we could meet, share a morning giggling, talk about bands we all have in common, and take photos of DC in the early hours at daybreak.
