Washington DC Engagement Photography | Washington, DC Engagement Photographer

Binita and Prashant will be married next year in India, but wanted to get their engagement photographs taken around the Washington, DC National Mall area.  We walked around to the Jefferson Memorial and then back around the Tidal Basin by the Washington Monument and the WW II Memorial.  The skies were overcast after it had been raining all night, but that kept the tourists away and we were able to get some shots at the Jefferson Memorial with no tourists in site, so you take the good with the bad.

They are a wonderful couple and we had a great morning walking around our nation's Capitol.

Washington DC Engagement Photographs at Georgetown Cupcake, Union Station and the Jefferson Memorial | Washington DC Photographer

Manda and Amar got engaged at the world famous Georgetown Cupcake last spring.  Amar called ahead and had the chef at Georgetown Cupcake prepare a special set of cupcakes that popped THE (will you marry me) question to Manda.  They live in Dallas, TX and were visiting some relatives in the area, so they wanted their engagement photographs taken in the DC area, specifically at Union Station, the Jefferson Memorial, and Georgetown Cupcake.

The weather couldn't have been better.  It was the day after Thanksgiving and we had 70 degrees and sunny  weather.  They were such a beautiful couple that we were stopped a number of times and asked if  we were doing a magazine shoot with models.  We ended the busy day with about a dozen cupcakes to go ... they were VERY good.

Engagment Photographs at the Jefferson Memorial

Amanda and Kyle are college students in their senior year at Gallaudet University in Washington DC and are getting married next June and wanted to take some engagement photographs around the Jefferson Memorial. It was late in the afternoon and the sun was low and warm, perfect light for photography.  We stayed long enough so we could get some nice photographs just  as the sun was setting.

Carly and Tim Wedding Portraits at the Jefferson Memorial

Carly and Tim were married earlier in the day on this rainy day in September here in the Washington, DC area. They are both in the military and were only going to be in town a short while.  This was a week in Washington where it rained for five days straight and it was raining pretty hard on this  day.  But since it was their wedding day and we might not have a chance to do it again while they were in town we decided to roll the dice and go down to the Jefferson Memorial and take some photographs. 

Other than a few sprinkles, we got pretty lucky with the weather.  On the plus side, the weather also kept the tourists away.  The photographs turned out great and they were able to get some nice photographs taken on their wedding day.  Oh by the way, as soon as I got into my car the clouds opened up and it poured.

Washington DC Enagement and Couple Photography | Washington DC Photographer

It has been a busy couple of months and the Washington, DC National Mall area continues to be a popular location for couples who want engagement photographs and portraits taken.  The weather in DC has been very hot this summer with over 25 days over 90 degrees and very humid.  I try to get my couples to start bright and early to beat the heat and to best the tourist crowds.  It doesn't hurt that the best light of the day is in the early morning and late evening.

Washington DC Engagement Photography | Washington DC Photographer

The last few weeks have been very busy for engagement photography around the National Mall in Washington, DC.  With the Washington Monument, Jefferson Memorial, and Lincoln Memorial as backdrops, couples from all over the country come to Washington, DC to have their engagement photos taken. 

The weather this time of year is pot luck.  I had a nice sunny day for one engagement shoot, I had cold and wind for another, and SNOW for the third during the Cherry Blossom Festival.  The one couple that was from Houston, TX wanted their photos taken during the Cherry Blossom Festival.  I explained to them that we would have to start bright and early to beat the crowds.  So the day of the shoot it was snowing.  Because they were only in town for the day, there was no chance to reschedule.  You can probably tell by some of the photos below which couple it was.  You can see snow in her hair which actually looked quite nice.  As the morning rolled on the sun did come out and the cherry blossoms were in full bloom.
