Spring has finally arrived and we couldn’t be more ecstatic to share this gorgeous cherry blossom engagement session, shot recently in Washington, DC with our awesome couple Monica + Ryan. Even though we advertise ourselves as both a New York City and Philadelphia Wedding Photography Studio, let it be known that we travel all over to shoot weddings and portraits! Luckily for us, Washington is a close neighbor to Philly and just a short train ride away, so we loved getting the opportunity to shoot in our Nation’s Capitol!
Monica and Ryan are actually getting married this November in Atlanta and we’re beyond excited to be headed down South with them for the big day!! However, since they recently moved to Washington DC for their jobs, it was only fitting to do their engagement portraits in the city that they currently call home. So at the start of Spring, we anxiously awaited the arrival of the Cherry Blossoms, which also coincides with the Cherry Blossom Festival every year in DC (according to the National Cherry Blossom Festival‘s website, it spans four weekends and welcomes more than 1.5 million people to the city!!). The trees decided to bloom a little later this year, which actually worked out perfectly since it was the first week that the weather also started to warm up! Needless to say, we took full advantage of the gorgeous scenery surrounding the Tidal Basin, where all of the blossoms line the water overlooking the Jefferson Memorial. You would never know from looking at the photographs but it was super crowded as we made our way along the busy paths. Luckily, these two took it in stride and were troopers throughout the whole session!!
Anyway, here is a little peak at some of our favorite images from their session. We can’t wait for their wedding this November and look forward to sharing more of this beautiful couple!!
