Before I am a photographer, I am a daughter, a sister, an auntie, a friend. Maybe that's why I cry during every father daughter dance. I laugh at every toast. I well up when an Officiant pronounces a couple husband and wife. I buzz with joy chasing children around the playground. I feel awe when a newborn's tiny hand clutches my pinky finger. I draw from the emotions I have experienced through my own life's most precious moments to know when and how to capture those of others, and I usually can't help feeling overwhelmed myself! The emotional rush I feel when I'm behind the camera is what makes me love what I do. The joy I bring others through photography is what makes me do what I love.

Valentine's Day Engagement Session :: Lincoln Memorial :: Washington, DC

Vicente decided to surprise his fiance, Gema, with a trip to DC and as part of the surprise, he added a special engagement photo session at the Lincoln Memorial, a place of special meaning to them both. Vicente and Gema met in DC on a high school trip in 2001.

It was such a fun afternoon and I just loved meeting you both! I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip in DC!
