Dana & Hal | National Mall engagement session

I’m going to let you in on a little secret, blog readers. I’d say a good 80% of the people I photograph tell me they are “not photogenic” or that they are awkward, particularly in front of cameras. Dana and Hal told me that. Yes, seriously, these two. I have to say they straight rocked out the fall colors on the National Mall.

We met at the carousel on the Mall, where Hal proposed. (awww)

Some day, I’m going to use this darn sculpture to its full effect. It vexes me. So many angles, reflections, shadows… this is definitely my best attempt to date.

It was crazy windy, so we hopped into the National Gallery for a few indoor photos. I don’t know what is up with the National Gallery – they have walled off one of my favorite windows and taken down a number of pieces I used to use all the time. We had to scope out some new spots.

Looking forward to doing it all over again in a few months!
