DC Cherry Blossom Engagement Session

DC Cherry Blossom Engagement Session

When choosing a local for the best engagement portraits in Washington DC, there are so many locations to choose from in the city.  Quaint neighborhoods, such as Georgetown or Capitol Hill, Trendy locations like Union Market, Union Station with it's iconic arches, just so many places to consider. 

Across the river from the Arlington National Cemetery, you can see the infamous skyline stretching from the Lincoln Memorial, The Washington Monument, and the Capitol Dome in the distance. On the DC side of the Potomac River, Cherry Blossom trees line Ohio Drive and the Tidal Basin. These pink blooms are a yearly tradition for many DC residents and a popular portrait location for many couples and families. 

Scheduling your session can be difficult as the fickle DC spring weather can be hot one week, and snow the next. These factor into the peak bloom prediction. While the trees are quite beautiful just before and after peak, if you are lucky enough to be at the Tidal Basin at the right time, you will be in awe of the fluffy light pink blossoms. 

When you are looking for a photographer to capture your session, be sure to ask all the right questions before your cherry blossom session. 

  • Do they know all the rules and regulations and permit fees for photography at the Tidal Basin and surrounding areas? 
  • Do they know the "secret" locations where you can hid away from the thousands of tourists and make it look like you have the blossoms all to yourself? 
  • Do they use lens that will isolate you and hid those pesky tourists?
