in the midst of all the rain frustrating all the dc wedding photographers it literally could not have been nicer out for rachel and brad’s engagement session. we hit the beautiful national arboretum for their dc engagement photos and basically spent the afternoon clubbing trees. i also make an appearance thanks to brad’s nifty photo skills while holding my camera. needless to say… i wasn’t really prepared to be scaling tall limbs, but it was totally worth it. rachel just got back from asia, while brad just returned from iraq and needless to say i had no problem capturing their connection.
