I met Andrea at a Starbucks during a torrential thunderstorm for a potential bride consult, and what started off as a short overview about everything included in my wedding package turned into a two-hour long conversation about her wedding day dreams and plans. I think that’s when we both knew she was meant to be a Lauren Thompson Bride! We waited out the storm by browsing her saved inspiration images and talking through the craziness it is planning a wedding in Northern Virginia. A brief couple of months after this coffee-shop conversation, I finally met the James that made her so smitten and determined for a perfect day!
Andrea is such a bubbly and bright person, and James seems to provide a calming presence that balances them both out. Talk about a match made! I cannot wait to photograph their beautiful Country Club of Fairfax wedding in just over a week because I’ll finally get to see all of the beautiful details we dreamed over in that Starbucks! Until then, enjoy these highlights from their short engagement session at the Lincoln Memorial, Reflecting Pool, and War Memorial captured on both digital AND film!
