Ever meet a couple and immediately like them so much that you say to your wife (or girlfriend), “Let’s make friends with THEM”? That’s the kind of couple Meredith and Dave are – the kind you instantly like, admire, and want to hang out with. They are cool, accomplished-yet-humble, thoughtful, kind, intelligent, and (to top it off) adorable together. So it was a lot of fun to hang out with them last week for their engagement photo shoot in D.C.
We tromped around the Mall area, taking some photos in the gardens of the Smithsonian, on some marble steps (always plentiful in D.C.), posing with a giant triceratops skull, and well, just walking around. They were really good sports about a few things — like ants in the ivy I asked them to lean against (sorry Dave) and damp grass on the lawn where I asked them to sit (sorry again). The reward, as usual, came in the form of fun photographs that really captured the easy-going nature of these two world-traveling, D.C. natives.
