Everything is more fun with bubbles - not to mention these girls’ stunning gowns! Thank you for a lovely afternoon narrowly dodging a storm and ending up with warm memories.
Shannon & Justin welcomed precious little Naomi in March, and held their portrait session at their beautiful home in Virginia so we could include their dogs in the photos.
Rosa thought she and Jesse were celebrating their 5-year anniversary with a portrait session at the National Arboretum here in DC, but he planned to propose to her during the session - all captured beautifully by my associate Maria.
~ Congratulations Jesse & Rosa! ~
Simon & Deena are the definition of happiness together - full of laughter, life, and not afraid to break out dancing without warning. It was a beautiful afternoon with them downtown!
To keep up with their tradition in LA, we held a mini family portrait session down by the monuments to capture their family vacation here - and Vivian’s two missing front teeth!
As peak bloom comes to a close, petals scatter in the wind and turn the ground pink!
The perfect setting for Kim’s elegant white gown.
I absolutely adored watching these two together as I photographed them around the cherry blossoms - romantic, easy, and happy to let me take their photos well past sunset for some fun nighttime shots.
A warm, colorful sunrise for two happy couples visiting DC during
the National Cherry Blossom Festival. Enjoy!
Donal and Fernanda are visiting DC from Ireland! Our session almost got rained out, but the sky turned a beautiful shade of blue just in time for them to dance and giggle their way around the cherry blossom trees. We even saw a precious mama duck with her ducklings.
On the edge of the Tidal Basin, Ryan proposed to Rachel this week during DC’s cherry blossom festival. They spent the rest of the afternoon strolling among the trees, getting swept away by floating blossoms, and celebrating their engagement. Congratulations!
We met at the Jefferson Memorial at 6am, the night sky just starting to turn pink with the first rays of cherry blossom sunlight. The Tidal Basin was still and glassy, perfectly reflecting the deep blue night sky. A magical morning for celebrating new life. Congratulations you two!
Spring is just around the corner in our nation’s capital! The cherry blossoms will soon bloom around the magnificent Tidal Basin.
Here’s a shot of the Jefferson Memorial during last year’s peak bloom.
The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial sits across the basin from Jefferson, with the Lincoln Memorial just behind it.
