Whitney + Israel | Washington, D.C.

Updated: Jul 7, 2019

|| How They Met ||

From the city that never sleeps, to the quiet streets of the south.

Israel never thought after a move from New York, God would introduce him to his future wife while in their high school years.

During our lives, God moves us, or moves people from our lives. Sometimes it's easy to accept and sometimes not so much. But in this case, God moved Israel to a different state and into a new high school to bless him with something he was about to learn would change who he was for the rest of his life, a future husband and father!

Which brings us to his beautiful bride-to-be, Whitney, who messaged me inquiring about her upcoming wedding and needing professional photography. I hadn't even met her in person yet, and I knew she was going to be wonderful to work with! The grace she extends through her messages alone is so transparent and immediately makes her an ideal client to work with! From the beginning, she was so sure to plan out her wedding based off of the time needed to capture all of their moments on their special day! Together, we came up with a draft timeline to help determine how many hours she needed for photography. After drafting the wedding photography timeline, it was time to schedule their engagement shoot which was a moment in the making!

|| The Engagement Session ||

When she and Israel, stepped out of the car the morning of their engagement shoot, their energy was vibrant, and it was 4:45 am on the quiet streets of Washington, D.C!! They NAILED their wardrobe! But outside of what makes a photo shoot successful, they were so calm, collect and willing to go past the limits to capture their passionate moments on this day. After almost 12 years of being together, you can see their hearts are both so humble, and they are prepared to commit their lives to serving each other.

Here are a few photos from our time together during the morning golden hour in the U.S. Capital! Whitney and Israel, I hope you enjoy the photos, as much as I have enjoyed our time together on that Sunday Morning that is now another beautiful page of your love story.
