We are only a few weeks away from M & A’s wedding with one of our favorites, Favored by Yodit. Yodit is a Washington DC area wedding planner who specializes in multi-cultural weddings. We were excited to meet up with this gorgeous couple for their engagement shoot at the iconic Library of Congress.
M & A’s engagement shoot was a great exercise in how to “work around the crowds.” I love the Library of Congress, both the exterior and interior spaces, but I always expect huge crowds. If you know anything about my personal passions you know I also can’t get enough of the design of the building. The Library of Congress is built in the Beaux-Arts style of architecture.
Dressed to Impress
One of my biggest tips for any shoot is that the people dress to match the environment of the location. M & A didn’t disappoint for their engagement shoot! M had her hair and makeup done professionally and the two dressed to the nines to fit into the formal nature of the space. Can we talk about those tassels!?!?
After a few shots inside and outside the Library we hopped across the street to the garden area of the Capitol building for some more casual shots in jeans. I don’t know if my favorite part is her perfect button down or the red lip.
We are so excited for M & A’s wedding at the beginning of September at the Cosmos Club and The Mayflower Hotel! Could there be two more gorgeous spaces for a wedding? If you’ve ever been to an Ethiopian wedding before you know the music, food and dancing are going to be F-U-N! Not to mention if this sneak peek of the couple’s style is any indication we are going to have some gorgeous fashion in our future.
