Old Town Alexandria Engagement Photos | Carlyle House

While Laura and Avery dated they spent a lot of time in Old Town Alexandria so it was only fitting to do their engagement photos here! These two are tieing the knot in June of 2022 in Northern Virginia at Bull Run Golf Market. When Laura and I first spoke on the phone, she mentioned when it came to wedding photography they wanted light and bright photos and more importantly, plenty of photos of their wedding party and guests having fun!

We instantly clicked and I’d knew we’d be a great fit when she said she was looking forward to doing a first look and investing in photos was important to her! I was so excited to finally meet Laura and Avery in person!

We wandered around the cobblestone streets, waterfront, and made a stop at the Carlyle House during their engagement session in Old Town Alexandria! There was a slight hiccup during their engagement session- Avery may have forgotten his second outfit and Laura’s dress was accidentally left at a nearby friend’s house. Thankfully, we budgeted in plenty of time for engagement photos and had time to grab the missing outfits before the natural light went away!! I told Avery the engagement session is just practice for your wedding day. So as long as all suits are at the wedding next June, it would all be just fine!!

Laura and Avery, I had such a fun evening with you! I’ve been itching to come up here and I’m so glad this gave me an excuse for a fun day outing close to Washington DC. See you next summer!
