Tom and Lindsey | Engaged

Two years ago, Tom got a birthday present he never expected. As he celebrated with friends at a restaurant in downtown Bethesda, an unexpected guest, Lindsey, turned out to be the best birthday present he could have ever hoped for.

Two years later, Lindsey and Tom are engaged and I couldn't be more excited. Lindsey is one of my very best friends and I have been waiting for this day *almost* as long as she has. :-)

We took advantage of the early morning light this morning at Glen Echo Park and got some really special images. Glen Echo Park is not only one of my favorite locations to shoot, but it is also incredibly special to Lindsey and her family. She grew up just a few blocks away and spent her childhood celebrating her very own birthday there, riding the carousel, taking pottery and painting classes, and even attending ballroom dancing. The park has been an integral part of her life and it is seemed suiting to bring Tom there to mark another milestone- her impending marriage.

Tom and Lindsey,
I am so excited for the two of you and I wish you nothing but joy and laughter over the next few months while planning your wedding. I know it is going to be beautiful and full of love. It makes me very happy to know that in addition to the biggest party you will every have-- your wedding -- you will be celebrating many more birthdays together for years to come.

xoxo, Dottie
