DC Cherry Blossom Couple's Portraits

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.
