Chelsey & Chris
It’s not often that I get to shoot somewhere new to me these days, so when Chelsey mentioned that she and Chris liked the Washington Nationals and that they were up for exploring a new location, I jumped at the challenge! I’d been intrigued by the architecture of Yards Park despite never having been there before, so that’s exactly where we met on a stunningly gorgeous Friday evening in DC.
It was even more beautiful than I could’ve imagined! The periphery of the park was lined with willow trees (my absolute fave), and on the other side was the iconic white Yards Park bridge. To top it all off, Chelsey and Chris were SO fun to work with! It felt like we were instantly comfortable together. They were killing it from minute one and made my job so easy!
After starting in the park, we made our way over to Nationals Stadium. It turns out, saying these two “like” the Nats is a massive understatement! Chelsey and Chris actually had one of their very first dates at a Nats game, which makes perfect sense because they’ve both been superfans of the team long before becoming an item. I loved getting to hear about those early days of their relationship and watching them reminiscing in a location so special to them!
Chelsey and Chris, thank you so much for trusting me! If these portraits are any indication of what’s to come, I have a feeling the wedding is going to be EPIC! Counting down to your September wedding!
