Ive known Jen and her mutt Allie Mae for a few years now. A while back, Jen started to get into running, joining a running club and everything. She’d tell me all about these long runs she’d go on at ridiculous times of day (like . . . in the morning. ugh.) and I’d hear about all the new friends she was making. She even started traveling a bit for races and marathons all up and down the east coast. The one day she mentioned a guy she met through some of these new friends. We both sort of got busy with our lives and suddenly she’s telling me they were engaged. And I couldn’t be happier for her!
They met through some friends at a party and their relationship grew until they were running multi-day overnight races together. Now THAT’S true love! Jason’s surprise proposal came on New Year’s Eve. Jen’s response? A thousand times yes!
When it came time for their engagement session, Jen made just one request: do whatever I want. So, I took the opportunity to do some video work, as well as still photography. This blog post is just some still photos from the shoot, video will follow once I get to editing it all.
We started out at the home they just bought and are renovating. Did some video work there in the backyard. Despite Allie Mae’s best efforts to eat my camera, we prevailed. Then we headed into the District, to the Yards Park near the Navy Yards.
All in all, it was one of my favorite engagement sessions this year. Special thanks to Becca from Rebecca Watkins Photography for her assistance during the shoot! Best of luck to my friends Jen & Jason, I wish them all the happiness in the world.
