Scott + Jordan's Engagement Session || Washington, DC

First off (and yes, I know I'm partial) - shout out to friends who gift engagement sessions! It's such a neat way to meet new clients, and I knew right from the start I was going to love Scott and Jordan. I was looking forward to their engagement session for many months, even more so when I found out that they live in the same building as a few of my DC friends! We started our session right in their neighborhood, enjoying the breezy, beautiful golden hour at Navy Yard.

These west coasties made a special request to wear alma mater (and rival!) college pullovers, and it got hilariously 'heated'.

After a quick outfit change, we popped over to the Capitol and kept the golden magic strong, right on in to a seriously gorgeous sunset.

Seriously, you can't beat this view! And how lucky were we to have the are relatively empty? Or, at least by empty-enough-to-photoshop-out-stragglers ;)
