alma + mike | art gallery engagement | washington, dc

i seriously struggle with words to pair with these images because i don't know how i can write down how much i adore these two. (and i feel like i say that for every couple i've had the privilege of photographing recently -- i have the best freakin' couples, you guys. and the best job. but aaaaanyway.) Alma and Mike are some of the kindest, sweetest, most fun-loving people i've ever had the pleasure of knowing.

if i didn't know that we were the perfect fit when we spent a good time of our first coffee date chatting about our favorite restaurants in DC and their travels all over the world, i knew it when Alma suggested the National Gallery of Art as her location preference for their engagement shoot. my face hurt from smiling as i walked away from our 2-hour exploration of one of my absolute favorite places in DC. their happiness is seriously contagious!

i'm still blown away by the fact that i've only known these two for a couple months. it feels like i've known them for years and i'm SO over the moon excited to shoot their wedding next summer. can June 17th get here faster please?!
