An Old Town Engagement

Our engagement shoot was a last minute decision, made possible thanks to my friend Damien Smith, a true pro who treated us to a shoot during his D.C. visit in May. You probably remember the highlight video reel I shared just before the wedding, plus shots of the blown-up photo we displayed at the church and golf club.

Today, I couldn’t resist also sharing the DIY album I created to showcase our favorite images from the fun Old Town Alexandria photo session. Since this book is much shorter than the wedding album I wrote about yesterday, it definitely took much less time to design and was much more affordable! But all in all, I loved making both albums, and especially love being able to share them with others.



Did you do anything creative with your engagement photos?

  3. Great photos, and great location! You live in such a cool area. I'd love to visit again one day (haven't been since 2001 - yikes!) We did a DIY photo album for our engagement photos, too!

  6. I love Old Town, what a great place for pictures. These are great.

    I made a photo guestbook with our engagement pictures. Now it's more like a yearbook with all the messages in it from the wedding :)

  7. Fantastic place for pics! Old Town is awesome. :) Your photos are gorgeous as usual.

    We travelled a really long way to get ours done and I made them into albums for my parents last Christmas. I'm in love with all of them. (Which is nice since I don't like so many of my wedding photos.)
