The Green Spring Gardens
Yesterday evening I had the best time capturing these sweet Spring garden engagement portraits in Alexandria for Dusty and Izzy. It is just starting to feel like Spring weather in Virginia. While the skies did start to turn a bit gray for our session, there were so many beautiful blooms. I had never been to the Green Spring Gardens park in Alexandria, but the grounds were lovely! There were trees and flowers blooming in every different color, and a little house sits on the high point of the park. This park was the ideal location for these spring garden engagement portraits for Dusty and Izzy.
Mom & Pop Coffee Shop
The second place Izzy and Dusty wanted to capture portraits was where they had their first date. Isn’t that just cutest? They had their very first date at a local coffee shop in the Mosaic District. The coffee shop also doubles as a small happy join with their beer and wine menu (how fun!). That said, I did not realize The Mosaic District is such a happening place (silly me, really) on a Saturday night and I did not realize how popular this coffee shop was! We swung by and the place was swamped with people everywhere. We still got some special portraits out front of the coffee shop, but sadly we were not able to get ones of them seated there enjoying coffee, reminiscing on their first date. Instead, we found some fun painted brick walls and finished up our session with the remaining light. I can tell these two are so much fun! Izzy and Dusty, it was wonderful to meet you in person and I cannot wait for your wedding day! It will be here before you know it.
