Although this engagement session was actually a couple weekends ago, it feels like just yesterday I was up at dawn, standing at the top of the Lincoln Memorial with Jackie and Gilliam. We specifically chose a sunrise session hoping to catch the first glimpse of the sun coming up behind the Monument, but the forecast had other plans. Despite a cloudy sky, everything about this session was perfection. Even as the morning carried on, we were just about the only people walking around the Reflecting Pool. Maybe we were smart scheduling a sunrise session the morning after Cinco de Mayo!
If I had to use one word to describe Jackie and Gilliam, it would definitely be classy! In fact, seeing them in DC and at the various memorials, they looked to be in their natural element. So presidential! I loved that they opted to do their session in DC and specifically on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial where they got engaged. I had such a wonderful time getting to know this sweet couple and hear more about the details of their December wedding at the Commonwealth Club in Richmond, VA. It is going to be such an elegant and beautiful celebration!
I am thrilled to be sharing some of my favorites from this beautiful session! Enjoy!
