BRANDI + TONY | CRYSTAL CITY AND TIDAL BASIN ENGAGEMENT SESSION PREVIEWS
BRANDI + TONY | CRYSTAL CITY ENGAGEMENT SESSION, CRYSTAL CITY VA, COLUMBUS OHIO ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER
For day three of our D.C. adventure we headed back to Virginia for another session. Tony and Brett go way back and funny enough Brett will be in the wedding while the rest of the team shoots their wedding next year. So, as you might assume we were pretty excited to meet the couple that was about to throw us into an interesting wedding day.
For this session we decided to meet them in Crystal City and even passed the Pentagon! I was thinking in my head man that building has a lot of corners until someone said that's the Pentagon. It was super cool to drive past because I wasn't able to see the White House this trip. #FAIL
When we reached our location we instantly found the coolest wall art and had to take a MILLION pictures before heading to where we actually were supposed to meet Brandi and Tony. After wandering around for awhile and planning the shoot we decided to check out the train tracks. MAN AM I GLAD WE DID! It was so cool. There were a ton of trains that actually went by too! Freaked us out the first time and we realized not to stand too close. But, once our couple arrived we were pros.
Daniel was definitely laying down on the other side of the tracks for this shot. Totally worth it and hilarious with the train crossing!
THEIR LOVE STORY!
In June of 2012 in Crystal City, VA Bertrand and Brandi met while working together. They had passed each other numerous times, but it wasn’t until September of 2013 while at Subway when the two locked eyes and engaged in conversation when Bertrand asked, “Hey, where’s my sub.” The next day, their first lunch together was at Starbucks while sitting outside enjoying each other’s company. By the end of the conversation they had agreed to a dinner date that next weekend. After the dinner date, they began to hang out more and more and took the next steps and introduced each other’s children to one another.
As the months went by, they had developed a stronger bond that led to them to moving in together. Two years later, on March 30, 2016 Bertrand proposed to Brandi at his military retirement ceremony. They have set their wedding date for July 28, 2018.
After we were done in Crystal City we headed back to the Tidal Basin because can you really get enough of the Cherry Blossoms in one day??? NO!!! The answer is NO!!! They had even bloomed a little more than two days ago when we were there last. I loved the blossoms and the best part was they didn't STINK!
