Rachel + Ben’s rainy Kingman Island adventure engagement session
Rachel + Ben tied the knot this past weekend at City Winery, and I had so much fun with them! I should’ve known, after the time we had together for their engagement session last fall. Rachel + Ben met a few years ago playing kickball (apparently, Rachel “wasn’t very good, but made up for it with enthusiasm at the happy hours afterward”), and today they live over on Capitol Hill. We decided to stick close to home for their engagement session, going to one of their favorite neighborhood spots, Pretzel Bakery (did you know they do weddings? I recently spotted their pretzels as a late-night snack at another wedding) for a snack before heading over to the boardwalk at Kingman Island, one of my favorite hidden oases in DC!
Well, the weather decided at the last minute to NOT cooperate, but we didn’t let that stop us. My favorite thing about Rachel and Ben is that anything they sign up for? They are HERE. FOR. IT. We played in the rain, I learned how ticklish Rachel is, and we splashed in puddles. All in all, these two just go to show that life is what you make of it, and this session is one of my favorites of the year for the memories it brings back. I’m so, so glad we didn’t reschedule!
