This summer has been such a whirlwind… I am so excited to finally be able to share this beautiful Washington DC engagement session from this past spring! I like to call this session “Love Lock Down” LOL!
Lauren and Josh are an amazing couple! They have been together for 4 years. They are both from New Hampshire and they’ve been together for 4 years. Lauren is a physical education teacher at an elementary school in New Hampshire and Josh moved to Washington DC to join the police academy. They were inseparable before Josh moved to DC, so living apart has been the hardest thing that they’ve had to deal with in their relationship. Although it’s been tough living in different states, Lauren is very proud and supportive of Josh’s career and training with the police academy. Since that has a big impact on their lives, they wanted that to reflect in their engagement photos. Lauren suggested that they have a DC themed photo session incorporating some of Josh’s police gear including his handcuffs and boots. Although Josh is the police officer, I think Lauren is the one who has him on love lock down!
We started the session at West Potomic Park. Although it was after the peak of cherry blossom season, we were still able to experience some of the beautiful blooms. From there we walked a little bit around the National Mall and I got to know a little more about them. They usually like fishing, going to the beach, and going for joy rides. But since they live in different states now, when they see each other, they just like to relax and watch movies with their two dogs Lola and Bella. Lauren and Josh are such a fun, easy going, and loving couple; I really enjoyed working with them! I wish them the best of luck in their future life together.
