Sayali & I had been planning this shoot since the beginning of June & I’m so glad we finally made it happen towards the end of July. We had rescheduled it about five times but it was definitely worth the wait! I loved that she chose to wear her pink romper that I was with her when she first bought from Papaya. 

We took some pictures at the metro in Reston where we met up because I insisted. I saw this GORGEOUS light & knew that we had to take at least a few on this beautiful glass bridge that connects the parking lot to the actual metro station.

And a few on the walk over to Georgetown on a sidewalk as well as a bunch on Key Bridge!

I love Georgetown for its cobblestone, it always reminds me of Paris.

Sayali, thank you for being so chill even with all the people walking around as we got this shot! We were both under the impression that there would be a lot less people out on a Sunday evening. I guess everyone wanted to share in on the beautiful lower 80’s with a breeze by the water.

Thank you for the most fun and spontaneous Sunday night I’ve had in a while. I know you’ll continue to keep killin’ it at your new job & enjoy your vacation in Italy! I know I’ll be looking out for the pictures once you’re back!
