First, let me just say that I love engagement photos shoots!

Asking for your partner’s hand in marriage is literally life-changing, and is immediately followed by excitement from family and friends, which makes the promise of this next step even more meaningful. And for better or worse, we live in a time when sharing our lives on social media is the norm, so engagement photos are a special keepsake for more than just living room décor. Here at Lab House Studios, I strive to create a collaborative experience. Choosing locations to shoot, for example, is something that should be a joint effort between photographer and couples. For this reason I send my couple clients a list of amazing locations to serve as a backdrop to their shoot. Once we’re able to discuss more and I get a feel for who they are as a couple, it’s on and poppin’ -- I mean, shooting! DC is our nation’s beautiful capital and therefore full of rich history, regal monuments, and an energy that is unlike any other city in the nation. Below you will find my top places in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia (DMV represent!!) to shoot for any occasion, but especially for engagement shoots.
