National Harbor Engagement|Kiara + Brandon| Virginia Wedding Photographer

I watched the forecast every day leading up to Saturday. All I saw were grey cloud emojis and rain. Not one sunny smiley face in sight! This weekend it was going to rain and be grey. But I didnt let that stop me. I was determined to FIANLLY meet Kiara and Brandon. We had been chatting since December and made a date to meet at the National Harbor for their engagment session. They couldn’t have been sweeter!! I love meeting couples for the first time and just knowing instantly that we were meant to work with one another. They were so trusting and yet so excited. And they loved to have fun! I could see the joy in Kiara's eyes. Its almost a twinkle when she looks at Brandon.

There were big things happening this weekend in DC. And I was certain the overflow of the Inauguration and Million Woman March DC would end up at the harbor. But to our surprise, nothing but the usual traffic. We photographed around the Gaylord Convention Center and then walked down to one of the piers. It was perfect. Perfect for them because no one else came down that far.

Brandon and Kiara are getting married in April and will start their lives' together in Laurel! Their wedding will be here before we know it, and we can’t WAIT to meet not only their friends but also their sweet families! If their wedding day is as beautiful as their engagement session, then it’s going to be absolutely amazing!!! Enjoy some of my favorites!!!
