Rachel and Matt met during the college years in Penn State, and they’ve been dating ever since! After graduation, they decided to move to DC together for work, and have just purchased a charming place together just a year ago. Rachel knew that Matt would be popping the question, she just wasn’t sure when! During the summer, Matt surprised Rachel with a ring and he popped the question while visiting the Dumbarton Oak Garden. Little did Rachel know, Matt recruited the help from their friends and family, and even have it captured on camera by her cousin! Rachel said yes, and the rest is history!
For their engagement session, they want their photos to represent how they usually spend their time together. We decided to have their session at their lovely home in DC, as well as strolling around the neighborhood, which is highlighted by historic rowhouses, beautiful mini-gardens and foliage, as well as quaint streetscape and grassy area. Always love a classic downtown DC street!
Rachel and Matt have the best chemistry, and they are such a joy to hang out with and one of the sweetest couples I’ve ever photograph! Looking forward to their wedding in 2019!
