Two weeks ago we had the pleasure of hosting our great friends Dan and Elena from Wilmington, NC.  Elena is my college roommate and also the talented photographer behind Pressed Magnolia Studio, who also photographed my engagement and wedding.  Basically, she is the only person who can make the awkward and embarrassing task of having a photo taken even remotely tolerable. Trust me, that is to be considered the absolute highest praise.  Elena was in town for a mutual friends bridal shower, so as always we shamelessly took advantage of her camera skills and she generously obliged.

Emily and I wanted photos for our blogs about us page, so we decided to venture to our favorite DC shopping places.  We started the photoshoot at Eastern Market, thankfully it was the first day above 50 degrees so we didn’t have to burrow ourselves under layers of coats, but that also meant that the outdoor market was crazy busy, so there were a lot of people to witness the ridiculousness of us carefully shopping with Elena clicking away on her camera.  Eastern Market offers delicious produce from local farms, unique finds like vintage photographs and letterpress stamps, we thought this would be the perfect location, as it is our natural habitat.  Here are a few outtakes from Eastern Market…

Our next stop was TROHV, an AMAZING retail store in the Takoma Park neighborhood of DC.  If you are a local to DC or Baltimore (both cities of locations) and you haven’t been, you are SERIOUSLY doing yourself a disservice.  It has some of the most unique and beautiful home decor, very Anthropologie meets Restoration Hardware...just put your things down and GO NOW!
