Alexandria VA engagement photos are always SO beautiful, especially with these two! When I first heard from Justin & Theresa through my contact form, I immediately knew that we were going to be a perfect fit because of their humor! They started off their love story by saying “we found love in a hopeless place” and I mean, come on y’all, who wouldn’t crack up at that?! Why was it a hopeless place? The two of them met on Tinder, so maybe not so hopeless at all!! Their mutual love for corgis made them swipe right on each other. Thank GOODNESS for Rascal, their sweet little pup that you’ll see all throughout this blog post. I absolutely LOOOOOVE that Justin woo’d Theresa over with this precious line: “I bet you a date and a bottle of wine that you swiped right for Rascal”. Can you guess who won that bet?!
I think that it’s absolutely perfect that their two main loves are corgis & wine. They’re getting married at The Winery at Bull Run in September. Plus, they have the sweetest little corgi together, Rascal!! Theresa & Justin even dream of starting a winery one day. Their ambition is inspiring because that is and how they want to make a life out of their passion. I cannot wait for their wedding day so soon! I know it’s going to be a romantic & joyful celebration with all of their friends and family.
Theresa & Justin got engaged at Great Falls National Park. Have you ever been?! If not, it should definitely be on your bucket list because that place is MAGICAL! The waterfalls themselves are something everyone should see at least once in their lives. Justin & Theresa had planned an outing to the park. However, after a few hints throughout the week, Theresa had realized that she might get engaged very soon!! They found the absolute perfect spot to have a picnic and he proposed while they were sitting together on a rock by the water. How ROMANTIC is that?! I don’t think it gets much better!! Insert all the heart eye emoji’s
Their engagement session took place in Old Town Alexandria because it is super close to where they live. It’s also such a romantic & diverse little town. Alexandria was the ideal backdrop to capture the two of them in their element! We started the session off with Rascal on the cobblestone streets of Old Town before he went off with the doggy-sitter! How cool (and SMART) is that?! Theresa hired a doggy-sitter for Rascal. That way, they didn’t have to bring another person to the session just to take care of him when he wasn’t involved in the photos. Rascal was SO well behaved. Where do I begin on how DASHING he looked in that sweet little bow-tie?! ADORABLE!! He is the sweetest & fluffiest dog ever. I can’t wait to see him again at their wedding!!
We finished their engagement photos at the waterfront in Alexandria VA. It’s right near the boats on the dock out in front of all the restaurants. The lighting out there is always just phenomenal at sunset. I adore all the little sailboats that are docked alongside the way. These two killed it at their session – I’m 100% obsessed with how much they rocked the twirl, nuzzle, and kiss & linger!! Dare I say they are pro’s?! I am so happy for the two of you. I cannot wait to watch you say “I Do” in less than a month at the most gorgeous winery ever! I’m counting down the days, sweet friends!!
