Glen Echo Park Engagement Portraits: Stephen Gosling Photography
Alexandra & Patrick are (for want of a better word ( Alexandra 😉 )) AMAZEBALLS!
Every now and again there are the couples that you just adore. I’m fortunate enough to have found a couple that love my work, and whom I simply can’t explain how amazing they are. They are super cute and loving and 2 of the funniest people I have ever photographed.
Let me paint a picture;
It’s a warm and sunny Sunday morning at Glen Echo Park just outside of Washington, DC. I arrive for our session and having spotted whom I believe to be Alexandra and Patrick a few cars down from my own; I head over to say hello and to get out pictures stared. What do I see? A reasonably well dressed young couple proceeding to drink about 3/4’s of a bottle of white wine out of Styrofoam cups beckoning me to join them in their morning libations. I kindly reject their offer to get me drunk. Being a consummate professional I don’t usually start drinking until about 80% through the job at hand. Alexandra (who we can all agree is a stunning beauty) proceeds to explain that she’s nervous and needs to get tipsy to be photographed. From here on out it was just a fun couple of hours hanging out with new friends, not a 2 hour session of work.
If only every couple were Alexandra and Patrick. I would happily shoot 24hrs a day, 7 days a week.
I’ve rambled enough. Glen Echo Park is an incredible place for a shoot as I’m sure you’ll see! I hope I get to go back soon. Now for some pictures!
I can’t wait for the hilarity that is sure to ensue at their wedding in May. So excited!
