While the National Mall is a pretty popular spot for engagement shoots, there's one time of year that it really shines for its romantic appeal: cherry blossom season. While it's sometimes a little tricky to schedule a session around peak blooms, weather and the lovely couple's schedule, it's always worth the effort, every single time. The pink flowers, spring weather and magnificent white architecture all combine for a truly spectacular sight.
There are plenty of historic and iconic engagement shoot locations in Washington, D.C., particularly around the National Mall. However, the Jefferson Memorial is something special, with its elegant architecture and waterfront views combined for one picturesque setting. The only thing to remember? Getting tourist-free photos requires an early morning!
What better place for a breathtaking photo shoot than Washington, D.C.'s National Gallery of Art? The only thing prettier than the artwork is, of course, you and your beau. We took full advantage of the gallery's range of settings for this shoot, including the grandiose architecture, the glitzy light installation connecting the East and West wings and the lovely surrounding outdoors.
