Algonkian Park in Sterling has more activities available than you can do in a weekend. A golf course, soccer and baseball fields, the Potomac River, a water park, and lots of nature trails to hike. This was where Dianne, Kent and I spent an afternoon exploring and making some great images.

Who knew there are wooded parks in the middle of Washington, D.C.? Lori and Andrew told me they had a great little spot near their home. I love it when my clients suggest an unusual location for an engagement shoot that they are familiar and comfortable with. It was natural for Andrew to bring his guitar as they are both very much into music. We got a lot of fun, casual, loving shots in a wonderful location.

I always encourage my clients to choose a location for their engagement shoot that holds personal meaning. Someplace that they are familiar with or that is special to them. When Anna and Mike told me to meet them at the corner of 14th and I in DC my only response was “huh”?!?! (It is a very nondescript street corner in the middle of downtown). What was their plan? As it turns out……..that corner was not only where they first met, but also the spot that Mike got down on one knee and proposed. My appreciation for their choice grew more and more as we walked around Mike’s old neighborhood dodging raindrops. We discovered some great locations, had fun, and for the most part stayed dry. Trust your clients. Great lesson learned.
