summer love & secret gardens.
adel + max are engaged! i am *so* happy they asked me to photograph them in and around their neighborhood in dc! we met at meridian hill park (a favorite of mine for its striking architecture!) and i fell in love with both of them immediately. they are so cute and so happy and so absolutely perfect together! i loved getting to know them and learning about their relationship and wedding plans! technically we already met at a wedding i shot last may — they are good friends with one of my all-time favorite couples kathleen + jerry — so fun!
i had a great time with them wandering down random alleys and shooting at some of their fave spots along U street, but by far the coolest part was visiting the temple community garden where adel has a gorgeous plot! she grows flowers and vegetables alongside other dc residents behind the scottish rite temple — an absolute hidden gem! such a neat idea, and an amazing spot to shoot! love!
adel + max — you rock!
