Real Couples // Old Town Alexandria Summer Engagement: Lauren + Micah

Real Couples // Old Town Alexandria Summer Engagement: Lauren + Micah

We first met at the University of Maryland where we would meet every now and then for lunch with a group of mutual friends. Our relationship grew very naturally. We started as friends and as time went on, our lunch meetings with our friends became lunch dates with just me and Micah. We spent a lot of time getting to know each other. One of our favorite places to spend time together has always been Old Town in Alexandria. We both enjoy being outside and being near water. The day after my birthday (February 19, 2016), Micah had my best friend invite me to get my nails done and go to happy hour. After Kristian and I left the nail salon, she suggested we go to Old Town for dinner and drinks. When we arrived in Old Town, Kristian pulled up next to Founder’s Park (which is right along the water). She handed me a box and told me to look at what was inside. On the outside of the box was a note that said “Open and walk towards the light in Founder’s Park.”

I think I have an extreme personality, so say you give me 10-pound weights, I may end up a body builder, or you buy me a bike, I may start biking 20 miles a day. All of this happened by the way. So she gave me a camera, and it ended up as a photography business.

The Women's March on Washington: Kanayo Adibe

The Women's March on Washington: Kanayo Adibe

Kanayo Adibe is a DC photographer who attended the Women's March this past weekend, and this is the march through his eyes: "How do I explain this experience? 3-hour long queues for metro passes, delayed trains, full parking lots and garages, streets packed with people like sardines, but most importantly UNITY. It was an overwhelming experience; to see sooo many people come together for a single cause was mind-blowing. We should do this more often; the world would be a better place. Here are a few highlights of the day from my eyes."
