Darian & Jonathan- Engaged

Blindsided By Love!

Everyone loves a good love story, so meet Darian and Jonathan! These two met on a blind date set up through a mutual friend. Their blind date led to a 4 year relationship, and now these two are preparing to commit to one another for the rest of their lives! Exciting right? I photographed Darian and Jonathan’s engagement session at the Brookside Gardens in Silver Spring, Maryland and let me tell you it was a beautiful fall day! During our time in the garden I got to learn so much about these guys. Darian is a college professor and Jonathan is a research consultant in the chemistry field. While their professions may sound a tad intimidating, they are very down to earth and have a ton of amazing hobbies and interests! You think I’m exaggerating? Well, Darian plays the trombone and Johnathan plays the cello, and they love playing music together. Darian loves the outdoors so he enjoys running (including marathons), camping, hiking, and doing crazy things like the polar bear plunge! Jonathan enjoys cooking, baking, and gardening. I even got a little plant and flower tutorial as we walked through the gardens…thanks Jonathan! Oh and if that wasn’t enough… they also enjoy traveling, tennis, and Darian has even developed a passion for painting. Trust me when I tell you that this is one well rounded and busy couple! I am grateful to have had the opportunity to document such a special occasion for this amazing couple! I wish them nothing but the best.  I hope you enjoy this preview from their engagement session.


Way to go! Such motivated young and talented men! I love it, I love them!! Moments like this give me something to be excited and happy about!
