Washington DC Rustic Engagement Photos

Washington DC rustic engagement photos have changed.  No more burlap and mason jars.  Now, it’s bentwood chairs and skirts that blow in the wind.  For their engagement photos, Katie and Michael wanted florals and greens.  I was more than happy to invite them out to The Estate for an early morning shoot before their beautiful […]
