Places | Oxon Hill Farm

It’s been a while since I posted a new place to do engagement photos, mostly because I’ve been working my tail off doing weddings!  But this weekend I braved the heat to hit up the charming Oxon Hill Farm just down the way from National Harbor and Oxon Hill Manor, which I did not visit, figuring on a Saturday they were probably setting up for a wedding.  This is the right place to do an engagement in the fall.  When I went, it was incredibly hot and incredibly bright.  On the plus side, though, there were cows.

It’s kind of a smallish spot, so it would be a good place to do a half-and-half style engagement shoot.  I’d probably recommend some time on the farm and then to hit up the National Harbor – a 180 degree difference!  There’s also some trails so if you’re the woodsy type, we could rock that too.

Awesome spot! Thanks for the tip, I’ll definitely be putting it on my list :)

First Dance Light

George was helping me test some light this evening (very reluctantly, but helping nonetheless) and I caught him being a rock star.  Rock on, husband.

PS: Yes, it’s Saturday night.  I could give some excuse, but the fact of the matter is, I’ve had a lot more exciting Saturday nights since I started photographing weddings.  If I don’t have one, I’m probably at home reading with the beau.  (Read: Watching Star Trek, playing with my strobes and surfing the ‘net while George studies.)  Hope y’all are partying it up and such!
