When they reached back out I was over the moon excited […]

When I think ‘classic’ I think of the DC cherry blossoms. Cecilia and John wanted a DC spring engagement session at the Tidal Basin and I was thrilled we were able to give them their dream! With the closures due to the pandemic, I didn’t know how accessible the mall would be but we had […]

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 […]

Jill and Jason just knew they wanted cherry blossoms in their engagement photos. These two met in DC so they wanted to celebrate the beginning of their love story by commemorating it with classic District of Columbia inspired photos. It had to be the tidal basin for sure!

During Cherry Blossom season, I had the pleasure of photographing Angelica and Melissa. These two are the perfect match: Angelica is a local wedding planner and Melissa is a photographer herself! These two drove down from Maryland to have a mini sweetheart session in the sun with me at Haines Point!
