For the Love of Beer & Hockey - Laura & John- Maryland Engagement Session
Washington Capitals & Gunniness Engagement Session
I always try to design my engagement sessions to fit my couples personalities and what they like to do. After chatting the Laura & John I learned they both love hockey… albeit teams that rival each other… and they both love going to breweries especially Guinness & Heavy Seas which both happen to be about 5 minutes from each of our houses. So we checked the hockey schedule and it just so happened that the Caps and the Penguins were playing in two weeks.
We started their engagement session at Heavy Seas. I think they have one of the best breweries and are definitely have my favorite Maryland beers. While enjoying a porter and an IPA we went back into their indoor game room and played Jenga. We snuck a peek in the back where they were bottling some of their beers.
Heavy Seas Engagement Session
After Heavy Seas it was off to the Guinness Brewery. If you haven’t been there yet you are missing out big time! This brewery is amazing inside and out and the beers which change every week or two taste great! The Vanilla Nitro is my favorite right now… Anyway, this is also a favorite place for John and Laura. They may or may not come here once a week.
Guiness Open Gate Brewery Engagement
After a few beers, some traffic, and a bathroom stop at a random store we made it down to Capital One Arena for the main event! The Penguins & the (Stanley Cup Champions) Caps game! We got their early so we could get some shots of the two of them down by the ice when the players came out. Unfortunately, we picked the wrong side (For John) but the right side for Laura. We ended up lined up perfectly for some shots with Penguins players. While taking photos the conversation of suites came up. And I mentioned how it was on my bucket list to sit in a Suite. Well, it just so happened that the seats John purchased were in a Suite ! So bucket list item… check!
Unfortunately, the Penguins won….Which I caught Laura’s reaction to what would be their winning shot…
Washington Capitals Engagement Session
Before the night was over we headed to the Glo festival in Georgetown to catch some night shots. The perfect way to end our engagement session!
