Lisa never took games too seriously, she would play to have fun and enjoy the company of others. Akhil was the polar opposite; he was competitive in nature and everything was taken as a personal challenge. These two met in the oddest of circumstances; Akhil and Lisa were placed on the same flip cup team at a friends Halloween party. Lisa’s first memory of Akhil was Akhil directing Lisa how to “properly” play the game. They playfully bantered back and forth about the game, about each other and their mutual friends. Akhil brought up the “science” behind flip cup and soon sparks began to fly as they flirted, talked and laughed together.
A few short weeks later Akhil asked Lisa out to dinner in Northern Virginia with desert in Georgetown; their marathon first date had them both head over heals for the other and soon their long distance love story began; filled with playful banter, trips to the movie theater and walks around Georgetown.
Their Washington DC engagement session incorporated many of the elements that made up their courtship over the past three years including movie theaters, parks and Georgetown itself (sorry no flip cup). Akhil and Lisa we had an absolutely amazing time photographing your engagement shoot and cannot wait for the wedding!
