Lincoln Memorial Washington, DC Engagement Photography

I received a call from Will a couple of months ago that he wanted to schedule an engagement photo shoot in Washington, DC around the National Mall area the weekend of February 14-16.  I didn't realize at the time that he hadn't proposed yet.  Will lives in Washington, DC and his fiance, Spring, lives in Oklahoma.  As you can see from the photographs, she said yes.  She was in town only for the weekend, so we had to do the engagement photo shoot regardless of  the weather.  Washington had a major snow storm on February 13th, and the weather for the weekend wasn't much better.  It was raining off and on, but we made the most of it and ended up with some great photographs.

Seeing Washington, DC for the First Time with a Washington, DC Photographer

I received an email from a member of the US Army who was visiting Washington, DC for the first time.  He was a photography buff and wanted someone to photograph him as he/we walked around the National Mall.  We started out at the White House and then walked around to the Washington Monument, The US Capitol, and then by the Tidal Basin where we could see the Jefferson Memorial.  Then we crossed over to the WW II Memorial, and walked down alongside the reflecting pool to the Lincoln Memorial, and lastly over to the Vietnam Memorial. 

It took about two hours, and I gave him my best shot also being a tour guide in addition to being a photographer. He was a pleasure to spend the morning with, and I was honored to be able to spend a few hours with him on his first visit to our nation's Capitol.

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.
