Next week, my friend Katrina leaves the District for med school in Mesa, AZ.  She’ll be fiercely missed and will miss DC something fierce…so I wanted to give her a few photos of her favorite people she could take with her.  She and her room mates live in one of the oldest houses in Mt. Pleasant that has been dubbed, “The Scooby Doo Mansion” by people at our church.  As group houses go, it may be the most delightful one you ever did see.  There’s always something wonderful being cooked in the kitchen, someone creating something cool out of yarn or paint, or some kind of concert or event being hosted there.  There’s love and deep friendship and warmth and laughter and ….so much more I want to share about how in your twenties your room mates become your family…but I’m not sure how to do that without sounding weird so….

This is my afternoon with the six unique, beautiful, generous, and kind ladies of Oakwood Terrace.

Well,  technically, Jeremy and Janelle found each other on OK Cupid.  She noticed he had a neat ‘stache.  He was struck by her gorgeous red locks.  But they fell in love in Mount Pleasant.  It’s where they want to start their new life together so when they asked me to take their engagement photos, I couldn’t think of any place more lively, more colorful, more lovely…or more perfect to spend an afternoon with them in.  We started the day out at Sticky Fingers Bakery with an old two seater bike and ended it in on the porch of Janelle’s house in Mt.P.

Props and pretty backgrounds aside, the best part was photographing Jeremy and Janelle just…being Jeremy and Janelle.  Every frame is filled with them loving on each other, laughing really hard, or singing to each other.    J+J, thank you for not holding back any emotion and for inviting me to photograph your wonderful selves.

 

 

I asked Jeremy to draw a picture of him and Janelle in the future.

 

He drew their house and their dog 🙂

 

*For those who don’t live in the District,  Mount Pleasant is an idyllic neighborhood tucked away in a little corner of northwest DC that borders Rock Creek Park.  I’ve heard it referred to as the “Berkeley of DC.”  Google Map it and stroll through the next time you’re nearby- you’ll be glad you did!

My friend Will is officially done with law school!  We took these photos as a way to celebrate his accomplishment.

Congratulations, friend.  I’m so proud of you!
