National Cathedral engagement session

Grace & Glen
  • Location: Washington D.C.

Nestled in the heart of Washington, D.C., the gardens of the National Cathedral stand as a testament to the city’s rich history and breathtaking beauty. I had the pleasure of capturing the love story of Grace and Glen against the stunning backdrop of this iconic location. The beautifully maintained gardens created such a stunning backdrop that perfectly matched the couple’s overflowing love.

The National Cathedral’s gardens boast a symphony of colors and textures, with vibrant flowers, lush greenery, and charming pathways creating a dreamlike atmosphere. The cathedral’s historic architecture added a touch of grandeur, making every frame feel like a work of art. It was such an enchanting setting for Grace and Glen’s to capture this sweet milestone of their love story.

These two fabulous humans connected on Hinge, and what was supposed to be a simple coffee date evolved into an unforgettable 10-hour adventure!  After coffee, it became lunch, dinner, and then drinks! They went from restaurant to restaurant continuing the conversation for hours, and really connected and felt something special on that first date.

Grace and Glen’s chance encounter marked the start of a love story that completely changed their lives. Grace, a Maryland native, found a sense of wholeness with Glen by her side. As for Glen, a natural wanderer, meeting Grace grounded him in a place he could finally call home.

The gardens provided the perfect setting for recreating the magic of that special date, with Grace and Glen effortlessly reconnecting amidst the natural beauty that surrounded them.

It’s always magical for me to see the romance as we capture images of an engagement. The couple’s affection for each other was palpable as their laughter echoed through the gardens, fueled by inside jokes that had become an integral part of their relationship.

Grace also mentioned how their bond is even more special because she truly appreciates all the thoughtful things Glen does for her. He’s always making an effort to make her feel loved. And Glen, well, he absolutely treasures Grace’s kindness and patience. It’s what he believes forms the foundation of their love and makes every moment they spend together truly extraordinary.

Looking ahead, Grace and Glen couldn’t contain their excitement for the amazing adventures awaiting them. They dreamt of growing old together, starting a family, exploring the world, and always being there to support each other.

Their wedding is going to be a fabulous celebration at the Crystal Room at The Willard. It’s a perfect setting for their intimate ceremony, with its elegant architecture and stunning decor. The crystal chandeliers and marble floors will add a touch of luxury to the already romantic occasion.

Grace and Glen are also looking forward to incorporating some personal touches into their wedding,  and are looking to make the decor romantic, elegant and timeless.

Their engagement session at the gardens of the National Cathedral captured their love in a way that will last forever, showcasing the timeless beauty of a love that keeps growing. I can’t wait to join them again in the Summer to keep capturing their effortless love.

But for now, enjoy these fabulous ‘romance in the garden’ images.
