I love my job. I know I say this over and over again, but I really do mean it. I get to hang out with fabulous, laid-back couples like Christie & Mike, explore unfamiliar areas (in this case lovely Clifton), and make colorful portraits of people in love. It really doesn’t get any better than engagement sessions like the one I had with Christie & Mike. They are THE most delightful couple. If they only lived closer to me I would harass them with invites to meet at the local bar or to come over for martinis. Conversation with them is real and funny and comfortable. And this was my first time to Clifton, Virginia, which is one of the cutest little spots in Northern VA hands-down. There is an ice cream shop, creek, railroad tracks, and tons of historic, colorful homes with white picket fences!! I loved this engagement shoot, and I cannot wait until Mike and Christie get hitched on March 31, 2012!
