I have been saving these photos up. When I photographed Peter + Sophie’s engagement session we had an adventure. I was in DC for another engagement session, was able to also meet up with them to photograph the one that they won from the free session I gave away last spring. Long story short, one broken car and a rental mustang later we were back in business and ready to treat ourselves to a delicious lunch. Peter had first suggested Ted’s Bulletin because of their homemade poptarts, and it was enough to lure us in. When we walked through the door I was immediately impressed by the overall feel of the restaurant. I had a clear voice, one that I couldn’t stop listening to. The cozy booths and old-fashioned counter harkened back a few decades but a clean and modern feel kept things from becoming overly nostalgic. Classic black and white films played on a big screen in the main dining room and the familiar lines of Casablanca made it feel like home. It reminded me vaguely of Sanders (which you Michiganders may know) and I couldn’t help but order one, maybe two – okay three poptarts. for the road. I immediately thought of the potential to take pictures there and after the last of the busy lunch crowd departed we went for it – after asking the manager’s permission of course. It was too good of a location to pass up. I photographed Peter and Sophie’s date at Ted’s Bulletin and ended my adventure with them in DC there. Since they are getting married on Saturday it’s the perfect time to share these and I hope you enjoy. I think I need to do more of these kinds of shoots, especially when it means good food is involved!
