A Rainy Summer Anniversary Session in Providence, RI | Jerrah & Dan | Hannah Bjorndal Photography

This rainy summer anniversary session in Providence, RI was photographed by Hannah Bjorndal on Tuesday, May 22, 2018. Hannah is a photographer for weddings, anniversaries & engagements on the east coast and is available for travel nationally & internationally.

Jerrah & Dan’s long-awaited anniversary session is HERE! After over a year of trying to coordinate schedules and get together, the three of us finally made it happen this week nearby Dan & Jerrah’s home in Providence, Rhode Island!

So, a little background: Dan and I met at Grove City College over 5 years ago, and since then, he’s helped me manage and optimize my website & blog (especially after I got hacked last summer!). Basically, he’s a WordPress guru and I don’t know what I’d do without him. To repay him for all of his help, I flew up to Providence on Tuesday for an anniversary session with he and his wife, Jerrah!

This was my first trip to Providence, and I loved it! New England is so beautiful, especially in the summer! I was thrilled to have Jerrah as a tour guide when I arrived, and loved hanging out with old friends for the evening! Also, dinner at The Malted Barley was pretzel-filled delicious-ness, and I’m still dreaming of my grilled cheese pretzel bun sandwich.

Yes, it was a little rainy . . . but it made the light SO pretty! There were so many lovely places around the city, my favorite being a rooftop to which Jerrah had exclusive access. I’m so excited to share these photos with you!

A Springtime Georgetown Engagement at Dumbarton Oaks | Alexandra & Jay | Hannah Bjorndal Photography

This springtime Georgetown engagement session at Dumbarton Oaks was photographed by Hannah Bjorndal on Saturday, May 5, 2018. Hannah is a wedding & portrait photographer available for weddings local to Washington, D.C. and destination wedding locations.

There isn’t a better way to start off Cinco de May than with a beautiful springtime Georgetown engagement session! I met Alexandra & Jay bright and early at their lovely Georgetown apartment, right across from Dumbarton Oaks. Although there was rain in the forecast, it held off and we even got some gorgeous sun at the end!

I knew I liked these two pretty much instantly. They made each other smile and laugh effortlessly! Their easy-going attitude and comfort with one another made the session so much fun and super relaxing. Jay is a PRO at making Alexandra laugh. Love it. Jay also made me laugh, so win-win.

Having your engagement session nearby your home is a great option for making the session personal and special to the two of you. I loved that we spent the session wandering around Alexandra & Jay’s neighborhood (which is super beautiful!). At the end, we were back at their lovely home and were able to spend time chatting about the wedding day details with Alex’s sweet mom! It was a perfect morning.

There are so many pretty places here in Georgetown that it’s almost too hard to choose! A sunrise session was the way to go – we avoided crowds and cars and basically had the park and streets to ourselves. The overcast sky quickly turned to sun, which gave us such a nice variety of photos. Basically, I’m all about Georgetown for engagement sessions!

So happy to be sharing these lovely photos with all of you!

Jay & Alexandra – I cannot wait for your New Year’s Eve wedding at the end of the year!

A Sun-Filled Spring Engagement in Quaint Old Town Alexandria, VA | Abby & Ty | Hannah Bjorndal Photography

This sun-filled spring engagement in quaint Old Town Alexandria, VA was photographed by Hannah Bjorndal on Thursday, May 3 in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. Hannah is a fine art portrait and wedding photographer based in Washington, D.C. She is available for weddings locally and at destination locations.

A warm, sun-filled morning, peaceful & quaint tree-lined streets, and the sweetest couple you could imagine! Is there a more ideal morning? This was how my day started yesterday with Abby & Ty’s sunrise engagement session in Old Town, Alexandria!

The weather has been superb this week, which is lucky since I had THREE engagement sessions on my calendar for the week! Everything in Old Town was beautiful in that early morning sunrise light. Old Town is such a pretty area, there are almost too many options for great photo locations!

Abby & Ty have a whirlwind romance story! After meeting just over a year ago, they started dating. Being in his final year in medical school, Ty was off in different places for his rotations and it was basically a long-distance relationship for a couple months. As Ty was finishing school, Abby was apply for law school (talk about a POWER COUPLE, right?!).

In between the busyness of their D.C. lives, they found time to get to know each other and fall in love! About one year later, they made it official when Ty proposed the day he found out where he would be placed for residency (Las Vegas, if you were wondering!). Ty was so excited to propose that he didn’t even have a ring yet, which I think is the sweetest act of authentic love! A few weeks later, he had a ring. They joked that this was his second proposal!

Because Ty starts his residency in June and Abby begins law school at Stanford (again, POWER COUPLE) shortly after, they are getting married at the beginning of THIS JUNE in Utah – where Abby grew up! Their story is so sweet, and I’m so excited that I got to be a part of a little piece of it!

I’m so excited to share photos!

Congratulations, Abby & Ty!
