When I was asked, "Correction" when I was told to shoot Missy and Antonio's wedding by Michelle I was more humbled than anything. I was excited that they trusted me once again to do a memorable job for their family on one of their most memorable important days one will ever have. So I quickly began brainstorming on a concept for their engagement photos which led me down to the South East Navy Yard in Washington, DC. It was a mildly brisk September Sunday morning just after sunrise. Please join me in celebrating the engagement of two wonderful people.
