The Washington D.C. Engagement Session :: Kristiaan & Lionel

Random Hassas fact. I grew up in D.C.

Say hello to Kristiaan & Lionel. Kristiaan is said, chris-tee-on. Lionel is said....Lionel.
These guys are a no nonsense photography team taking the greater D.C.area by storm.
These guys were so cool to shoot for. When I FIRST started, I thought shooting for other photographers would be the most awful, nerve racking thing ever. FAR from it. When you are shooting for folks that genuinely appreciate what your doing things are easy. I look forward to it now.

Guest what, to top things off here, I had the company of non other then Mr. Tony Schreiber shooting along side me. You can see his take on the session here.
You can see our group shadow shot below. :D

Thanks for the look see folks. Have a great Wednesday!!


After I'm satisfied with the session and feel I have a good dose of great shots, I open it up to some fun, different, artist, whatever shots. Here's one below. :D
My old stompin grounds. **single tear**
The team. :)

Kristiaan got me perhaps the most epic gift that she presented me at the tail end of our session. Get this, a custom made cookie with MY name on it!! HA!!!
It tasted every bit as good as it looked. So good. Thank you Kristiaan!

Holy...wow! Amazing set of photos. The leaf shot and the laying down/dark&light/shadow pic are just ridiculous! Your creativity is out of control!
