A Romantic DC Engagement

I am so glad this is my first blog post of 2021, because it's going to be A GOOD ONE!

Heyli + Brian hired me to photograph their wedding this June over a year ago. We were supposed to capture their engagement session in DC during the bloom of the cherry blossoms last year, but COVID happened, and we had to reschedule and select another location. DC means a lot to both Heyli + Brian, so we scheduled another portrait session for this spring!

This was my first time traveling to the city, so of course, I made a weekend trip out of it! Biking and touring the monuments was so beautiful, and surreal. But my favorite part was walking through the cherry blossoms along The Tidal Basins. It was absolutely breathtaking!

The particular spots we photographed at get super crowded during this time of year, so we knew our session had to take place in the a.m. It was a cold sunshine filled morning, that ended at a local coffee shop!

I am so excited to be posting this to my blog, as this was a bucket list location for me!
