I was super excited to go to Washington DC for this engagement shoot for Kristin and Mike, and little did I know that theirs was a whole DC love story! I adore when a city plays such a central role, makes it feel extra special when I show up and my couple has a deep connection with their location.
Funny enough though, Michael and Kristin’s love story had a much less rooted beginning. The pair met through the dating app, Hinge, while they were both in college! Mike was finishing up and about to move to DC for a job, and Kristin just happened to be in her junior year, right outside the city.
The pair spent around a month and a half getting to know each other, constantly texting, calling, and even facetiming. According to Kristin “We both knew just from those few short weeks, we had a connection neither of us ever felt before. It was so natural and easy and we were both waiting so eagerly to finally get to see if this connection was just as magical in person.”
Even though it was hard waiting to meet each other in person, they instantly felt they’d known each other forever and started the business of falling in love. Hinge for the win!
For their session, they wanted timeless, elegant, and classy DC inspired pictures to go along with their amazing love story, and I loved the fabulous outfits they picked out to go with this feel.
Their wedding will be a bit closer to home for me at the Barn at Silverstone, and I can’t wait to see how their classy vibes show up at their wedding next year!
