I couldn't have been more thrilled when my former roommate, Lilly, asked me to take her engagement photos. I struck the Craigslist lottery with her and I liked her soon-to-be fiance Shahrouz just as much.
After five years of a long distance relationship, Lilly moved to Washington, D.C. from San Diego to be closer to Shahrouz and into an apartment with me so she could be halfway between the big, exciting city of D.C. and Fairfax, where Shahrouz was living with his family. I got to know them well over lots of delicious Persian meals (Shahrouz is quite the chef), impromptu apartment dance parties, and bug killing sessions (Lilly might hate that I'm sharing this and she definitely improved a lot over the course of the year, but she HATES bugs and anytime a moth, spider, stink bug, etc. reared its ugly head, it turned into quite a hilarious production). All of this to say, they're such a fun, beautiful couple and I hope their engagement photos do justice to that and just how much they care for each other.
Lilly and Shahrouz picked a gorgeous fall day last November (yes, I'm a little backlogged on the blogging!) for their session in Algonkian Park. The sprig of yellow foliage and autumn colors couldn't have made a better backdrop. And with that, I'll let you enjoy some favorites from their session!
