Linda + Kevin | Washington, DC Destination Photography

District of Columbia Engagement : Linda + Kevin

It feels like I’ve known Linda forever… truth is, we’ve only known each other since my freshman year at The University of North Carolina. But, considering that was fourteen years ago, and almost half of my life.. forever isn’t too far of a stretch.  We have been friends through so many stages of life, various relationships, and our shares of loss and heartbreaks… some greater than others.

She and Kevin met while attending Pharmacy school at Howard University. I traveled to Washington, DC a few months ago to capture their engagement session and will make my first-ever trip to Philadelphia in the Fall for the wedding. It truly overjoys me to see her so working in the career field she always hoped for and beaming with love.  I hope you enjoy these images half as much as I enjoyed capturing them! Big thanks to my friend Denyelle of Makeup Art by Denyelle for making Linda look so beautiful!

You have to know Linda to understand this image. Lol. I told her to give me one of her “looksc” and she pretty much nailed it!

So, Linda is apparently a cat lady. (No judgement… I promise!) During the planning of their engagement session, Linda and I talked about Sebastian having his own little photos session often. She doesn’t plan to take him with her to Philadelphia for the wedding, but thinks of him as a bit of an honorary groomsmen (or would it be groomscat?) I obliged, and appreciate ‘Bash for his cooperation. Xo sebastian-1
