Eager to beat the Washington DC summer crowds, these two lovebirds - and Shannon Moffit in tow - started bright and early, visiting the Lincoln Memorial and the beautiful reflecting pool. Decked out in chic ensembles, engagement pics were captured and special memories were made - see them all in our Vault gallery right this way!

From Shannon Moffit Photography... Rachel and Vince live a true city lifestyle, so it was only fitting for us to meet in the heart of Washington DC for their engagement session. If you have ever been to Washington DC in the summer, you know that it can get crowded, so we decided to start bright and early as the sun crept across the reflecting pool and up the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. It was quite the peaceful experience! Rachel looked stunning, first wearing a deep blue cocktail dress with bow, and second wearing a pink cap-sleeve dress. A gold chunky necklace, earrings, gold band engagement ring, and nude pumps completed her classically elegant look! Vince's suit also looked sharp and made Rachel's outfits pop. These two are getting married in Charlottesville next spring!

From the Bride-to-be... Vince and I camped and hiked in the proposal spot two years ago. We wanted to recreate that trip because the view at the top of the mountain is so beautiful. The top is basically a saddle and grassy meadow with a 360 view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We got to the top and he acted like he had to get something out of his first aid kit for a blister. I was snapping pictures and wasn't paying him any attention. Once I sat down beside him (again, not paying him any attention), he asked me to stand up and then said the most beautiful things about us and our lives together. It was the sweetest thing and I continue to tear up as I think about it.
