Tom & Rachel: 500 Days of Summer Inspired Engagement, VA

Rachel and I had been emailing for months trying to coordinate our schedules for her and Tom’s engagement session. If I wasn’t at a wedding or flying off to New York with Matt, she and Tom were traveling to South Korea, Florida, Ohio, and elsewhere! They are quite the busy (and fun!) couple.

But when Rachel emailed me with an idea of doing a 500 Days of Summer inspired engagement session in IKEA, I was immediately on board! What a cute, unique, and clever idea for her and Tom’s engagement session!

And let’s be totally honest here: they are so stinkin’ adorable. If anyone could pull off walking around idea playing house, it would be them.

We had SO much fun walking through IKEA stopping for shots in the showrooms. I don’t think we upset too many customers… haha. After IKEA, we visited this cool record store in Woodbridge 2nd and Charles. Going in we thought it would be a little shop with a few records, when actually it was huge! Haha. There were even comics, which Tom very much enjoyed. And then our final stop was just to an outdoor area for some more traditional shots, just because. 🙂

This is definitely a new favorite and I hope you enjoy all the beautiful silliness! I can hardly wait for their wedding next month!
