A Downtown Salem Engagement Session
My couples seem to have some of the most romantic and sweet proposal stories and Lindsay and Michael are no exception. Both met in DC and began their life together in the Nation's capitol. So appropriately they spend much of their time working in, living in, and enjoying the city and the surrounding Virginian countryside. On a fall afternoon, Michael took Lindsay to a restaurant at Patowmack Farm for a short weekend escape in Northern Virginia. While seated at a gazebo, beneath the shadow of the mountains and overlooking the Potomac River, Michael knew it was the perfect moment to propose. And so on bended knee, three years to the week after he and Lindsay first met, Michael popped the question. Of course Lindsay said yes, and well the rest as they say is history!
This past weekend I met Lindsay and Michael in downtown Salem for their engagement session in this historic city. Next month they will wed at the Hawthorne Hotel and so we spent much of the time imagining just how wonderful the day will be. I just adore these two and I cannot wait to celebrate with them in November. But until now, enjoy this sweet duo and their beautiful fall engagement session in the Witch City!!Lindsay, you are beautiful!!Salem is the perfect location, so much history!!I couldn't get enough of Lindsay's coat, I'm a sucker for big, nautical details!!Work it guys!!Many of the buildings were closed due to the government shutdown, but that didn't stop us from taking advantage of the beautiful architecture!!How adorable are they?!These next sets are some of my favorite from the day, I loved how Lindsay's red dress popped against foliage.Love.Before a quick outfit change we found this little area which I think might have been someone's private garden. Hey we had to take advantage of the beautiful light ok?!While Lindsay and Michael changed into something more comfortable I photographed her beautiful ring.Michael, always making Lindsay smile.Fall comes and goes to quickly...How perfect is this little stoop?! It was like it was made for these two...Congrats on your engagement Lindsay and Michael, I had a blast hanging out with you!! I can't wait for next month!!
