Karla + Billy are Engaged, and by the way Roosevelt Island is awesome

You learn something new every day! I got lost on Roosevelt Island once 2 years ago, which is funny since it's a tiny island and the trails are like one big circle.  In fact at the time I remembered seeing a giant statue of just Theodore Roosevelt's head, which apparently never existed.  So of course when Karla and Billy suggested we go around to the back of the island since there was a fun wooden trail there, I was like, "Wait there's a back?"

My engagement shoots are so enlightening!

It was really cool!  Karla and Billy were wonderful to work with.  Their wedding is in just a few weeks and I'm excited!  The National Airport air traffic was constantly flying over, adding a fun distraction every few minutes.  By far one of the coolest parts of Karla, Billy and I's Tour de Roosevelt Island was when we saw an Osprey perched over a fish it had caught in a tall tree in the center of the island.  It could have picked any tree of course, or, y'know, the ground, to eat its meal but it picked THE TALLEST TREE ON THE ISLAND.  Showoff.

Congratulations K+B!

Enjoy the photos!



Cainna + Charles Engagement Session at Reagan National Airport

It's no secret that for the past few years I've wanted to go to National Airport to take photos but was scared to because I thought I'd get arrested or something. I don't know.  I'm weird.

But Cainna + Charles wanted their engagement session inside National Airport.  So I said, "Okay!"

And so apparently Airport Security doesn't care at all if you take pictures inside the airport.  What the heck was I doing for two years???

The shoot went wonderfully of course and Cainna and Charles were really fun to hang out with.  Their wedding's in three weeks!!  GET EXCITED!!!


Gravelly Point Rocks

Gravelly Point is nice this time of year, isn't it? It's a little park on the north end of Reagan National Airport's main runway, just outside of DC.  It's a perfect spot for watching planes take off and land, picnic (I generally pack at least one bag of Oreo DoubleStufs per trip to Gravelly Point), peoplewatch, take pictures, and chill out.  If you're in the DC area and you haven't ever been...what are you waiting for?!  Get out there and do something with your life!

And here are some pictures for you.   The rest of the photos taken that day are on my smugmug page.
