Theodore Roosevelt Island Engagement | Washington, DC | Sarah and Matt (and Biscuit)

Sarah and Matt love taking walks with their dog Biscuit at Roosevelt Island, so they knew this was the spot that they wanted for their engagement session. It was actually the original place that Matt was going to propose to Sarah - while walking with Biscuit of course! Sadly, the parking lot was COMPLETELY full on the day that Matt wanted to propose, so he had to quickly come up with a backup plan. The proposal ended up happening at Gravelly Point instead, but Roosevelt Island still holds a special place in their hearts!

And luckily for their engagement photos, we had Roosevelt Island almost completely to ourselves. Definitely no issues with parking on this day haha. It was a gorgeous spring evening and the leaves had just started to appear on all the trees - so we had such a beautiful green backdrop for their pictures!

I feel like this photo sums up dog ownership so well - just laughing hysterically while your dog is doing something ridiculous.

It’s always so fun to hear how pets got their names. Sarah and Matt knew they wanted to name their pup after a type of food, and since she was rescued from Alabama, they decided to go with Biscuit! I love it! And it fits her so well.
