Before I start this post, I have to warn you. It is full of so much joy! Despite it being six in the morning, Annie and Brendan were all smiles – the whole time!! Sometimes it can be a challenge as a photographer to keep everyone upbeat and excited at sunrise sessions. But with these two, I didn’t even have to try! All I had to do was tell them to look at each other, and the spontaneous moments just happened.
From the first miute to the last, they simply had so much fun together. And their laughter was contagious! I had a blast documenting it, and I couldn’t help but grin along with them. The best part? I know they will take that happiness with them into their marriage!
One of my favorite moments was when Annie revealed she had brought a secret note for Brendan! I hid it in my camera bag until the right moment so Brendan wouldn’t be suspicious. Don’t you just love when couples add their unique story into the photos? Needless to say, Brendan was surprised and it added such a sweet memory to the session.
I also loved how they had a date planned as soon as we were done: breakfast at The Virginian! It was even cuter when they explained it was the restaurant they went to after Brendan proposed at the DC monuments. Because it was sunrise then, too.
Their wedding is this summer, and I can’t wait to see them start this new adventure as husband and wife. I have no doubt their wedding day will be even more joyful. And capturing their love will be the biggest honor.
Until then, here are a few of my favorite moments from these Vienna Town Green engagement photos!
