I'm Candace and I'm a destination wedding & portrait photographer based out of the Washington, D.C. area. Chances are you won't find me in the DMV for too long. Come and explore my corner of the world with me!
Happy Monday you guys! I know everyone back home is prepping to head back into the work week but before you settle down for the night, I had to share a little peek into Chris + Rachels engagement session at Quiet Waters Park before I left for Costa Rica. These two cuties brought along their dog babies and if you know me, you know I was a-ok with that! Winnie + Colt were so well behaved and we somehow managed to get them to sit on rocks and pose for their own photos. Best doggos ever – Shout out to Rachels friend Camille for coming along to wrangle the fur-babes when they weren’t getting their photo taken. Rachel + Chris have the best personalities which made hanging out and wandering around the park that much easier. They are so comfortable with each other in front of the camera and on their own. Its no wonder since these two are real life high school sweet hearts right here in good ole Somd. We laughed and I made them do awkward things with people driving by but it was a hoot to photograph and I couldn’t have planned a better day even if I tried. Rachel looked stunning in her floral dress and Ill admit that Chris wasn’t half bad himself. The dogs stole the show though ;).. Kidding!
We hung around the gardens for a little while before making our way down to the river just in time for a beautiful sunset. We did a little off roading for a little path along the water. You can’t tell from the images but it smelled….. beautiful. haha. After making these two get their feet wet, we had a little snuggle sesh on the docks with the softest light. I mean, could these two look any better together? Im just going to have to find a way to be patient until their wedding rolls around because I already know its going to be one heck of a celebration! Until then though, enjoy some of my MANY many favorites from their engagement celebration.
