Alyssa and Ethan probably had one of my favorite sessions of the year. We knew we wanted cherry blossoms but also knew the tidal basin might be closed due to the pandemic. As it turns out, we went at sunrise on a weekend and had no problem at all with pedestrian access. In fact, these two were my second session of the day! Alyssa and Ethan have almost no pictures together so they wanted to create some portraits before Ethan got deployed and she would only have iPhone photos to look at during their long separation. We snapped their cherry blossom engagement photos before wandering they returned to their Capitol Hill Neighboorhood for champagne and yummy food to celebrate their beautiful day of love. They even surprised me with a bottle of champs! How did I get so lucky with such amazing clients. Here are my favorites from their tidal basin engagement session.
