Engagement Photos // Why are they a good idea?

Hey guys!

Head on over to Catalyst Wedding Co.  My guest blog post for them just went live this morning! Engagement photos, why are they a good idea?  I tried not to ramble on for too long, but my feelings are so strong on the topic…

Engagement session // at Yards Park with beagle in tow!

Well, it’s been a few weeks since my last post.  We need to catch up! My super busy season is underway and off to a great start.

Today I am delighted to share a really fun engagement photo session from about a month ago.  On an early Sunday morning Holly and Michael, and their adorable little Beagle named Sprocket met up with me at The Yards Park next to the Nationals Baseball stadium (They are huge fans!).  We walked the dock, fetched sticks, and had a wonderful time! Here’s a peek…

Locals Only // Hyattsville, MD Engagement Session

Often I leave my business cards on bulletin boards at cafe’s. It’s not very often that I get a call from one that I have left.  Almost weekly I tack up my card over at my favorite neighborhood coffee shop, Vigilante. A few months ago Meghan and Marshall, who also enjoy Vigilante gave me a call. They saw my card, and they were in search of a wedding photographer! We met at guess where…. our favorite coffee shop!  We hit it off and the rest is history.

These two are getting hitched in Baltimore this fall, so we met up for engagement photos a few weeks ago, and we kept it local!

We started at sunrise in Magruder Park with the couples pup, Booker.  We ended the morning with a hot cup of coffee over at Vigilante.  We had a second meet up a few days later at their home.  M&M make homemade pasta on weekends, YUM.  We ended the evening over at Union Market where the couple enjoys visiting the Rappahannock Oyster Bar .

Here is a look at the highlights…

Sunrise Hike on the Billy Goat Trail // Great Falls Engagement

A few months ago I met with Meghan and Ryan and we chatted about their wedding and what they wanted to do for engagement photos.  I always like to have the engagement photos reflect the couples personalities and I love to include hobbies they enjoy together.  Meghan and Ryan didn’t even have to think about it, they both love to hike.  They suggested we have the photo session on the Billy Goat Trail at Great Falls. A lot of people like to hike this trail so we set out there before the sun and had the rocks to ourselves!  Here are some of the highlights…

Everything’s BLOOMING // DC Engagement

Happy April, Everything is BLOOMING! The Cherry Blossoms have come and gone here in DC.  We have had no shortage of wind and rain the last few weeks but, two weeks ago we had a perfect evening.  I met Shannon and Jonathan over in Eastern Market where we went on a stroll and then we ventured off to Georgetown where we walked along the EMPTY C&O and then along the waterfront where we witnessed one of the most beautiful sunsets and a FULL MOON!

Here is a look at our adventure…

Fall Engagement With Kelly & Scott

Last week I met up with Kelly and Scott in Lexington Park, MD.  These two love the outdoors and  woodworking- among other arts & crafts.  They are currently planning their fall 2016 wedding and I will not be surprised if they start crafting up a significant portion of the details for the BIG DAY. We spent the afternoon sanding wood in the backyard for one of their many projects and then we took a stroll around Saint Mary’s Historic Village, a favorite place for Kelly to go running.  We had a beautiful sunset on a unseasonably warm fall day! Here are some of the highlights…

Meridian Hill Park // Engagement

Hi folks! Another month as flown by and we are full swing into August now.  This is when the wedding season picks back up for me.  From now until the end of November my weekends will be jam packed with wedding fun!  This week I wanted to share some engagement photos from one of my November couples.  This duo met me in Meridian Hill Park a few weeks back.  It was a mild summer day around sunset, my favorite time for photos! Here is a look at the session…

Engagement // Picnic in the park!

A few weeks back on a lovely late spring evening I got together with Sandy and Neal for engagement photos.  This couple is so cool and a joy to work with.  We started at home where the couple packed a picnic, had a drink, and took some headshots – These two run their own businesses! Neal started Flashband, which is a website that helps musicians meet,  network, and play music. While Sandy runs S Squared  a organization development consulting firm.  This couple is super busy, but we took a few hours and had some fun getting to know each other and I left with some really fun photos.  Here’s a look…

Toasted Wedding Event // Engagement Session Prize Winner!

Back in October Erika Nizborski Photography participated in the DC Toasted Wedding Event at Eastern Market. I had put a complimentary Engagement Photo Session in the raffle and Danielle and Jakub won! This couple was a pleasure to work with and I am so happy that they won.  Danielle lives and works in DC while Jakub is busy running his business in Portland Oregon.  The two have been long distance for a while and they are finally tying the knot this fall in New York State.  I met up with them a few weeks ago while Jakub was in town visiting.  We took a stroll around the Georgetown C&O Canal and the waterfront.  It called for rain that day but the sun stayed out just for us! Here are the highlights-

Engagement Photos // on Capitol Hill

Diane and Charlie had their engagement session in Lincoln Park on Capitol Hill. This was a gorgeous late spring evening, we really couldn’t have asked for a better sunset!  The couple wanted to have their session here because they are both history buffs- see the unique statue of Lincoln, and this lovely DC park is just bursting with character and charm.  Diane and Charlie are both very active cyclists- so of course we had to add in some subtle hints to the photos, see the HOTSAUCE and Cross Hairs caps.  This shoot was a ton of fun, I can’t wait for this couples fall 2015 wedding!
