Alex and Vaughn were the perfect couple to learn this lesson with. They both love Silver Spring and have an incredible future ahead of them. Not only are they getting married, but they both just became lawyers and will soon be working alongside each other at the same law firm! Despite these amazing accomplishments, they're both down to Earth... and, as you can see, very much in love!
Alex and Vaughn needed professional photos for their wedding website, so I spent an afternoon with them last weekend in Fenton Village. We agreed to meet at one of their favorite restaurants, Zed's Cafe, and it's a good thing we did. About 10 minutes after we arrived, the skies opened up and it poured! We had no idea when or if it would stop raining, so Vaughn and Alex ordered coffee and all three of us took our time at Zed's. Soon enough, the raid DID stop and we made our way outside, not knowing for sure what to expect. To everyone's delight, the evening light was just beautiful and rain puddles gave me the opportunity to capture some really unique reflection shots.
I really love how these photos turned out, not only because they feature two beautiful people, but because of the story behind them. They're a great reminder that with a little patience, lousy circumstances can sometimes lead to unexpected surprises.
