Engaged With The Monuments

Jonathan and Maristelle knew they wanted their engagement photos to be done near the DC Monuments, which hold a special meaning to the both of them.


The day turned to rain during their portrait session, but it didn't put out the fire between the two- they turned it up, glowed and their love for one another came through in spades.


What we discussed prior to the session starting: nerves, not being models, doesn't take good photos... Boy, did they prove themselves wrong.
