Kelsey and Gordon took their engagement portraits at Blackwall Hitch in Old Town Alexandria. They arrived at the venue early in the morning and used the beautiful space inside the restaurant before it opened for lunch. The restaurant had large windows and plenty of nautical decor to add to its charm. Blackwall Hitch was so picturesque! They then braved the cold for a couple of quick shots at the docks right outside of the restaurant — luckily, the sun was beaming and gave a little extra warmth to the couple as they embraced each other. After the quick shoot on the docks, they headed over to the Marsh Dyke Trail just south of Old Town, in the spot where Gordon proposed! This trail was just isolated enough to block out all the noise from the foot traffic and provided a quiet and peaceful moment as they reflected over their favorite moments throughout their relationship.
