A Gravelly Point Engagement

Audrey & Sam

When I asked Audrey and Sam about their perfect location for their engagement session, one particular spot came to mind – Gravelly Point Park. Gravelly Point is a beautiful park overlooking the Washington Monument just south of the river in Washington, DC. Gravelly Point is also a super unique place since it’s located right at the end of the runway of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and affords an *amazing* opportunity to stand underneath the planes as they fly overhead. (SO FUN – seriously – check out some of the shots below! (And yes, I was lying on my back to grab those ;-).) Gravelly Point also happens to be oozing with special meaning for Audrey and Sam! Located just a few short minutes from their apartment, for these two, Gravelly Point has been the site of many bike rides, runs, and dog walks throughout their relationship, and the place where Sam proposed back in July! Was there really any better location to capture the love these two share?? I think not!

Sam is one of my husband’s closest friends from college. In fact, they were roommates during their undergrad and Masters programs at Georgia Tech in Atlanta. Not only that, but when I graduated from undergrad and moved in with my now-husband, Sam became my roommate, too! And honestly, how much fun is it to get to photograph a friend who you’ve known so well over the years?!

Sam brought Audrey into our lives a few years ago and we couldn’t have been more thrilled for our wonderful friend to have found the one who brings him so much joy <3.

Sam and Audrey, I’m so glad I was able to see you both this weekend, catch up, and get behind the lens to capture your love. I can’t wait to photograph your gorgeous fall wedding at the Carnegie Institute of Science this November!!
