I will be the first to admit that my ambitions are simple: I want to take pretty pictures of happy couples in love, and I really want their photos to be a sincere reflection of who they are. For this reason, I was giddy during Zoe & Ahmadali’s engagement shoot on Friday afternoon. These two are happy, affectionate, and they are completely comfortable in front of the camera. As if that weren’t enough to make me ecstatic, they showed up in stylish, colorful outfits and they chose charming Old Town Alexandria – the site of Ahmadali’s proposal – as their backdrop. I was in heaven photographing these two and I could have kept at it for hours. Seriously. I cannot wait for their wedding, which is only a month away!
Zoe and Ahmadali met while attending the University of Maryland for grad school. Apparently, Ahmadali spotted Zoe from afar and pursued her for a while before she finally gave in to his persistence. Their first date took place in Old Town Alexandria near the very spot where Ahmadali would later propose. :)
