Old Town Alexandria Wedding Portrait Session | Mike and Val

Alexandria Virginia engagement session

Mike and Val contacted me just a few days before they took one of the biggest steps in their lives. This wasn't a rushed decision, for them it was simply the best time to go to the courthouse and be married! Having incredible photos to commemorate the day was something that was very important to both of them, so on the morning before they went to the courthouse we spent a few hours exploring around Old Town Alexandria.

We visited Carlyle House, walked the streets, and had a great time enjoying a rare cool August morning. The image above came from wanting to get a shot of the date on Mike's watch. But then I quickly saw the opportunity for a reflection, resulting in one of my favorite images so far this year.
