Please let these moody and sexy photos of DC couple, Allie and Nick, be a reminder that when you’re getting all dolled up to go and celebrate is as good as time as any to call a photographer and have your photo taken. These two were headed to the company Christmas party and Allie thought it would be a good time to just document the two of them and I could not agree more.

Photos shouldn’t live (or be taken!) exclusively on our phones. There is something to be said about having someone whose job it is to really see you doing what they do best. Memories are to be cherished and admired so remember to celebrate all of life’s moments no matter how big or small.
