I can’t describe in words how much I love to have a couple so in love in front of my lens. There is something about love and happiness is so contagious. Susie and Mario have that wonderful love and care for each other, and it was such a pleasure to photograph them. I knew Susie from our TU marching band days, so it was such an honor for me photograph another “band alumni family member”. She’s such a sweetheart, and I am so happy that she and Mario found each other. We met up for a sunset session in the heart of DC, the National Mall. Unfortunately, Mother Nature rolled in clouds and took away my beautiful light, but that didn’t stop me to help document their session! We had a blast walking around to a handful of monuments, taking in all this history this city has to offer. We even saw a family of ducks by the reflecting pool (which of course I had to include in the blog post!), and of course ended at the beautifully lit up DC war memorial for some beautiful night photos.

They are getting married this December, so help me wish them well and congratulations on the blog! Congratulations Susie and Mario!
