Meg & Jon | A Charming Old Town Alexandria Engagement

It’s couple’s like Meg and Jon that in the midst of a BUSY season (where I often find myself a bit stressed out) totally refresh me and remind me of how much I LOVE my job. Spending the evening with these two was a breath of fresh air and a true blessing.

I first talked to Meg and Jon over Skype while we were in Bogota. I started the consult off with asking how they met, fell in love, and how the proposal went down. I loved hearing them both describe their first meetings while working at the same restaurant in Old Town, how they grew in love over the years of dating, and then we got to the proposal (always my favorite part;)) Jon described that he asked Meg to be his forever on the gorgeous rooftop terrace at the Kennedy Center around sunset… the same place Joey proposed to me!!! And if that wasn’t enough to feel as though we were the perfect photographer/couple match- Meg later found out that Jon actually saw our proposal story and images (taken by the lovely¬† Abby Grace Photography) while gathering inspiration for HIS proposal. Match made in heaven, am I right!?!?

I finally had the chance to meet these two wonderful people a few weeks ago in the place where their love story all started. They brought their HANDSOME pup, Tyson- and we had the best time exploring every charming nook Old Town has to offer. I kept telling Meg and Jon how I felt like we’d been friends forever! Maybe because our stories are so similar (Joey and I also fell in love in Alexandria!), but mostly because these two are that great! They are so warm and welcoming- and I am so so thankful for the blessing of being their photographer!

Meg and Jon- I think you two are the coolest- and I absolutely cannot wait for November to get here!

Enjoy a few of my favorites from our time in charming Old Town!
