Chic and Modern Engagement Session at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC | Emille + Greg 

Her bold red heels, a dash of audacity against the classic marble. In the luminous corridors of the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., a couple strides towards their new life.

Emille and Greg and I bonded over soviet films and a passion for unique photography – the slash of shadow and light, a heavy-lidded look towards the lens, and cinematic mood that reveals layers of feeling and story. They discovered me for my Rangefinder 30 Rising Stars accolade, but quickly moved beyond that.

Sometimes you have an hour long conversation with someone and you just know they’re the one.

Take a peek at the art we created on the perfect day in Washington D.C. – I’m chuffed to this day at how much of these city-wandering, adventuring spirits I was able to capture beyond just the obvious facade of faces.

Venue: National Portrait Gallery
Dress: Reformation
