When we began batting around locations with Preethi and Mani; thinking about a unique Engagement Session location, the glorious National Harbor came to mind for their picturesque harbor, the gorgeous Gaylord Hotel and for the plethora of restaurants! Preethi wore an elegant designer peach colored sari detailed with gorgeous golden embroidery that sparked wonderfully in the evening sunlight. Everything from her delicate jewelry to her fabulous shoes matched her sari perfectly. What made her Engagement Session ensemble even more meaningful was that everything was hand-picked by Preethi’s sister. Preethi, your sister has a fantastic sense of style!
When Preethi asked her fiancé to wear a tie to match her sari things got a bit complicated. Like many men, Mani despised the mall. Despite his feelings, Mani sauntered into Nordstrom to ensure a happy bride and set off on a mission to find the perfect tie. After picking up two ties he thought matched perfectly to Preethi’s sari, he snapped pictures of both ties and sent them to Preethi so she could make the final decision. To her horror she was quickly reminded that her fiance like most men had no idea what the color peach actually is. Most men do not know anything beyond the ROYGBV we learn as children-to most men peach might as well be blue. Preethi looked at the first image of a pink tie and then a second of an orange tie, neither were peach! With the help of her sister, Preethi was able to quickly ameliorate the situation and remotely assisted Mani to find the perfect peach colored tie (If you still don’t know what peach looks like…look at the pictures).
Mani and Preethi’s Photographick Engagement Session took place at the National Harbor and the Gaylord Hotel. Under the beautiful D.C. sunset Preethi’s glamorous sari sparkled almost as much a Mani’s contagious smile. We love photographing this couple because they are fun, carefree and easy going. Despite wearing a heavy sari and open toe shoes, Preethi happily pranced in the sand and marched up and down a path of rocks. This engagement session was so much fun! Mani and Preethi, we cannot wait until your wedding events begin!
