Kelsey + Keegan’s cozy Saturday morning engagement session at home in Dupont Circle
Home is where the heart is… no, really! My couples ask me over and over the best way to have a unique, memorable engagement session. My answer is a no-brainer, but it usually surprises people — have your session at home! No, this doesn’t have to involve cleaning your place from top to bottom and hiring an interior designer for a swoon-worthy living room… all I’m saying is, you picked where you live for a reason, so let’s stay in the neighborhood! The streets, alleyways, nooks and crannies of your neighborhood have a magic that can unlock some really personal-feeling photos. On a rainy and relatively chilly June morning, I headed up toward Kalorama to meet Kelsey and Keegan for a morning adventure around their neighborhood. We started at home on the porch of their Art Deco building, splashed in some puddles, cuddled in some hidden alleyways, and found the lushest, most perfect corner of the neighborhood park. Oh, and then stopped for coffee and a bagel, because, well, that’s what you do on a Saturday morning! So next time you’re wondering what the most magical place is for photos… chances are, you’re staring right at it every day!
