Lena & Buzz chose a beautiful fall day for their engagement session. The sun was out. There were fluffy white clouds in the sky. The leaves were in their peak color. It. was. perfect. Taking only an hour or two for an engagement session on a day like that is just plain wrong, so on this day, we decided to make the most of it. We started in Great Falls State Park in Virginia at 8:30 to photograph the beautiful fall colors, illuminated perfectly by the rising sun. From there, we headed to Washington, D.C., to the Corcoran Gallery of Art, where, thanks to Lena, we were able to get permission to shoot in the Salon d’Ore, a beautifully decorated and ornate room originally from France that is now a permanent exhibit in the gallery. Of course, between all of the running around and picture taking, we had to stop by the Met Cafe for some delicious sushi during a well deserved break :) We finally left D.C. after 5pm, just in time to catch the sunset during our scenic drive along the George Washington Memorial Parkway. How awesome was hanging out with Lena & Buzz all day?
All I will say is that their wedding is going to be legen.. wait for it.
