Washington DC Engagement Photos: Shelby and Reda

Shelby and Red are the sweetest and their stylish Washington DC engagement photos were amazing to photograph! The two have been together since August 2017 after meeting at Reda’s uncle’s restaurant, where they were both working. It took them over a month to realize that they were more than friends but a kiss in Arlington sealed their fate. Now, these two wonderful people are planning their Briar Patch Bed and Breakfast wedding day to bring their families together!

Reda and Shelby chose to do their engagement portraits around Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. It’s absolutely beautiful in the fall and wound up being the perfect upscale look for their portraits. Honestly, I haven’t met two more stylish people than these two. Just look at those outfits! They both have such a great, relaxed city loving vibe to them and I loved spending the afternoon with them!During our session, I got to hear more about Reda’s proposal for Shelby. It was SO sweet. While visiting Marrakech and his family, he surprised Shelby completely with his proposal! When she said yes, they were able to have a huge engagement session with his family and friends from Morocco! It was so sweet to hear how he worked hard to surprise her with something special and memorable.

I cannot wait to see these two again in April for their Briar Patch Bed and Breakfast wedding! They are planning to have a large bridal party, a red old fashioned mustang, all the spring colored flowers, their dog, and so much more and it’s going to be amazing!
