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!

District of Columbia Cherry Blossom Engagement Session | Same Sex Washington DC Engagement | Melissa and Angelica

Alicia and Kenny were visiting just in time for the cherry blossoms! These two eloped and and never actually got formal portraits captured so they thought they should get all gussied up and celebrate their love with an anniversary session! These two met in DC before their trip to Korea so it seemed fitting that they would snap photos where it all began.

Cherry Blossom Engagement Session | Washington DC Cherry Blossom Photos | Alicia and Kenny

Elise & Jarrett opted for 2 extremely different portrait locations for their engagement session and I was all about it! We started at the Jefferson memorial at sunrise to get some classic DC portraits and ended with their pup walking around Roosevelt Island!

Roosevelt Island Engagement Session | Washington DC Engagement Photos | Elise and Jarrett

Not only is this one of my favorite sessions of all time, this is one of my favorite couples of all time! The second I met these two for beers, we felt like old friends. Daniel gets my obscure Mad Men references & Lauren is a hilarious tattooed goddess. We snuck around DC’s best garden, Dumbarton Oaks, right before they closed the doors for renovation until 2018!

Dumbarton Oaks Engagement | DC Fine Art Photographer | Lauren and Daniel

Every year, I have couples request photos in the cherry blossoms. And rightfully so! Ben and I even did our engagement photos with cherry blossoms! However.. tourists are swarming, even at sunrise! The Tidal Basin can be nuts. Because everyone wants their spring blooms without hundreds of people swarming, I have compiled a list of alternative photo locations that still allow for maximum blossoms but minimal people.
