Have you ever met someone and immediately know that you have a connection? Well, that’s how I felt when I first met Catherine and Newton. From their constant smiles and synergy as we talk about their story, to the fact that they are big foodies and love to travel FOR food, I instantly fell in love with this couple and over the moon to be capturing their moments for the wedding next summer!
Catherine and Newton have known and dated each other since high school. They even went to prom together! At first, they just thought they got along well and enjoyed each other’s company. As their relationship grew throughout college, they began to realize that there isn’t anyone else they would rather be with! So last year, Newton worked with Catherine’s sister and their friends and planned a beautiful proposal at Centennial Park. There, Catherine said yes and the rest is history!
For their engagement session, we decided to venture into DC at Meridian Hill Park. It was a beautiful afternoon, with the perfect golden light as the sun began to set. Even though the fountain was turned off, the sophisticated architecture and the luscious tree lines made the perfect backdrop. From Catherine’s mint color dress that matches perfectly with the bouquet by Lori of Wild Green Yonder, to the way they looked and smiles at each other, everything about this session was absolutely feast to the eyes!
Congratulations on your engagement again, Catherine and Newton! I can’t wait for your wedding next summer!
