Alexa + Josh, a Washington DC Engagement Session

Brooke Tyson Photography

I met up with Alexa and Josh in DC on Sunday night for their engagement session – and just wait until you see their beautiful portraits! DC is a special place for these two; Josh and Alexa met during college at George Washington University, these two live and work in DC, and now they are planning a DC wedding, so the National Mall in Washington DC was an absolutely perfect location for their engagement session. And not only did we have a gorgeous location, but the weather could not have been better! In the week leading up to their session, I checked the weather every day – and Monday through Friday it showed not only rain but thunderstorms! But then, miraculously, that forecast changed to sunny skies, and I am so glad it did – just wait until you see the gorgeous, golden, glowing portraits of these two during our last half hour and the beautiful sunset at the end of the evening!

Alexa and Josh, your engagement session was absolutely beautiful; I can’t wait to photograph your wedding day! Congratulations and enjoy this exciting time!

I love this one on the left! These two are such pros at the dip + kiss, and the Jefferson Memorial made for such a beautiful and iconic backdrop.
