DC Engagement Session GIVEAWAY from Joffoto!

After spending the morning shooting with Joffoto, it was impossible not to want to share his talent with another fantastic couple in the DC area. When Jof said he would love to gift a session, we jumped on the opportunity, and without further ado present our DC ENGAGEMENT SESSION GIVEAWAY!

A few rules: You must currently be over 18, engaged, and willing to do the shoot in Washington, DC. The district is the perfect backdrop, and Jof would love to capture your story in the city.  Also, you must be willing to shoot this summer, as autumn is one of the area’s busiest wedding times!

    1. At the zoo. My fiancée and I have always spent a lot of time at the zoo unwinding from our stressful jobs. Or in the beautiful hallway that connects the art museums underground. Those are the places we have always gone to unwind!

      1. So sweet! Would LOVE to see those pictures!! Congrats on your engagement!

    1. Wow what an awesome giveaway! I have to agree… Joffoto is a great photographer and such a nice guy! My fiancĂ© and I got engaged on Christmas Eve and can’t wait for our wedding day a year from now! We don’t go to DC often, but our favorite places are the tidal basin during the cherry blossom season, the planetarium in the Air and Space museum and finally, the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens during the Lotus and Water Lily festival! :)

      1. All FANTASTIC backdrops!! Congrats on your engagement!!

    1. Hi Scott and Al! What an awesome and generous giveaway. My fiance Brad and I live by the Cathedral, and I would love to do an engagement shoot there — there’s such a sense of awe behind it and the lovely gardens and gazebo add just the right touch of romance! I’m also a huge fan of the nearby Dumbarton Oaks and took Brad there early in our relationship when the cherry blossoms were in bloom. I think it would be an absolutely gorgeous backdrop for a summer shoot! And lastly, 18th Street and specifically La Fourchette, where we had our first date — before I moved in with Brad I lived in Adams Morgan, and it will forever remind me of our early dates together. I’d love to get some shots by the iconic Toulouse-Lautrec mural! I could go on and on- DC has SO MANY awesome spots- but I’ll stop at three and not blabber on anymore :) Congrats on your beautiful engagement pictures, btw, they are a testament to what a great giveaway this is!

    1. Ohhh it would be a tough pick! The monuments would make a beautiful back drop (quintessential DC!) , we’ve been living right near Old Town for years now and love those brick streets, and we love the docks at National Harbor too! So many options!

    1. This is so exciting you guys! I can’t wait to document your love in the city! Good luck! :)

    1. My fiance, Autumn, and I had our first face-to-face encounter in DC. At Busboy & Poets off of 5th & K to be exact. We have date night nearly every Saturday. And nearly every Saturday we find ourselves in the heart of the city, our city. DC has been the perfect backdrop of our amazing love story. It’s here where our kind of love was recognized by the highest court in the land, and where we were granted equal rights as those in traditional relationships. It’s here in DC where we bring my boys, Zion & Ezra, to Sunday morning service and then off to brunch. Georgetown, Chinatown, Adam’s Morgan, Howard, Capital Hill. It has all captivated, inspired & cultivated our love. While we can get dressed to the nines, sexy stilettos and skinny jeans for a candlelit dinner at Ruth’s Chris or Capital Grille, we often find ourselves in comfy clothes catching a flick at Regal Cinemas in Gallery Place/Chinatown. Just babe and me. Comfortable, enjoying a good laugh or thought provoking feature, all the while simply enjoying each other’s company. The simplicity and grandure of our love are what I love most about our relationship. I commented to Autumn just a few weeks ago as we strolled up on the uneven, damp brick leading up to the theatre, that it would be the perfect spot for an engagement shoot. All the lights, hustle & bustle, and us – hand-in-hand. She flashed me her amazing dimples & off we went to watch Melissa McCarthy do what she does best in The Boss. I count this opportunity to share our story, our love, as blessing. So much more than a coincidence. Fingers crossed that my wishful thinking one May Saturday date night will become our reality…

    1. We got engaged last year on Memorial Day – after being in each other’s lives for 17 years! We have a picture of us at the reflecting pool from the first weekend we lived in Maryland and I think it would be awesome to do pictures there. I’m heading over to Instgram to tag a friend!

      1. We couldn’t agree more – the reflecting pool is magic :) Thanks for reading, entering, and tagging a friend! Good luck!!

    1. What a great giveaway! I think the perfect engagement shoot would be in Georgetown waterfront. My fiance and I love it there.

      1. Georgetown is fantastic- a perfect backdrop for photos!! Thanks for entering (and we LOVED seeing you at Happy Hour!!) – good luck!

    1. I got engaged in February and we’re hoping to get photos taken this summer, perfect timing! The Jefferson Memorial is my favorite, but I really love the shots on the Lincoln stairs overlooking the Washington Monument! Great photos! Congrats!

      1. Congrats on your engagement!! Don’t the monuments just make you swoon?? :) Good luck, and thanks for entering! -Al

    1. Man! I wish it was open to non-engaged (already married) couples! I would totally love to win this, as we haven’t had professional photos taken together since our engagement session 10 years ago. The photos you guys took were gorgeous, so whoever wins this will be super lucky!
