Kaitlyn & Jon | Historic Downtown Alexandria Spring Engagement

As a portrait photographer, capturing sincere joy is always my goal. Pretty scenery and fashionable outfits are the cherry on top, but documenting moments between people that cherish each other is what I live for. When I met Kaitlyn & Jon in Downtown Alexandria last Sunday for their engagement portraits, I was a little nervous. I had taken a break from portraits over the winter and their session was my kickstart back into creativity. Within our first 30 seconds of shooting, I was blown away by how quickly and easily things were flowing and how beautiful the images were…and it wasn’t necessarily because of anything I was doing! It was because these two are head-over-heels, madly, deeply, 110% in love with each other, and that love was literally spilling out of them their entire session! The way they look at each other and laugh together was making my heart melt and explode all at the same time! And if you can believe it, it was about 45 degrees outside when we were shooting these and it didn’t even phase them! Such rockstars!! We had the best time and I’m so thankful!!

Downtown Alexandria is such a perfect location choice for a classy couple like these two. I love all the texture and detail the architecture brings, and how much green there still is throughout the city! Plus the Potomac River is right down the street, giving you allllll the variety! Jon and Kaitlyn frequent downtown together, as they live close by. Jon actually proposed to Kaitlyn in Market Square, so town was the perfect place for their engagement portraits! Annnnnnd one of the best parts was finding the LAST tree with blossoms in the park along the water with a perfect view and perfect light!! Does it get any better? I think not!!

Kaitlyn & Jon, I hope these next couple months of engagement are filled with blessings and so so much joy! You two compliment each other so beautifully and I’m so thankful you chose me to document this precious season in your lives together. I pray that these images will always bring sweet memories to your mind and a smile to your face!! Literally counting down the days until your wedding in June!! CAN’T WAIT! Enjoy some of my favorites from your engagement session!

Love & hugs,
Amanda

Okay, so these two are the BEST dancers! I asked Jon to twirl her, and they just kept on dancing!
Such grace.

Both the band and stone of Kaitlyn’s ring are two separate heirlooms from Jon’s side of the family. Isn’t it the daintiest, most classic thing?!
