Chic and Sophisticated Engagement at The St. Regis | Washington, DC

Emily + Alex’s Elegant St. Regis Session

Emily and Alex’s elegant engagement was such an enchanting experience. Set at the luxurious St. Regis in Washington, DC, this cinematic session was a captivating blend of old Hollywood glamour and timeless elegance. 

From the moment that I met them, Emily and Alex’s love was so evident. It was a privilege to capture it on camera as they softly smiled at one another and stood wrapped in each other’s arms. I especially enjoyed the shot I took of Alex at the piano and Emily leaning in to listen, it made for such a dreamy picture of their love. 

Chic Wardrobe + Stunning Scenery

These two sweethearts encapsulated the romance of an old, timeless Hollywood theme. Dressed in striking black – Emly in an off-shoulder gown and heels, and Alex in a dashing tuxedo, this couple effortlessly stole the show. I loved Emily’s simple choice in accents and Alex’s choice of jewelry. Emily wore a sparkling diamond bracelet and necklace that she paired with pearl earrings and Alex sported a classic silver watch. 

The St. Regis provided the perfect setting for this glamorous engagement shoot. Both Emily and Alex wanted a sophisticated session to memorialize their love – and the St. Regis did not fail to deliver. With its high arched detailed ceiling, cascading red curtains, and mesmerizing light fixtures, the St. Regis was the sublime choice for their romantic engagement. 

Sophisticated St. Regis Engagement  

It was a dream to shoot this elegant engagement. Much like the engagement I did for Marlon + Jackie, this session was nothing short of magic. I loved seeing Emily and Alex step into their ideal setting and steal the show. If chic, sophisticated engagements are what you’re looking for – be sure to contact me on my page.
