While a lot of couples wait for cherry blossom season here in DC, Fall is a lovely time to schedule an engagement session. The tree lined walkways leading from the Lincoln Memorial to the Washington Monument glow with warm autumn sunlight. It streams through the trees in the most beautiful way this time of year. The parks are quieter, especially on a weekday afternoon. With the monuments close by, you can get a good mix of trees with the iconic landmarks in the background.
The autumn weekends are full of tourists, but a late afternoon weekday session is a much quieter time. You can avoid the crowds and find areas to hide away from the busier areas surrounding the monuments and have a moment together.
No matter what the season, the National Park Service does require a permit for any professional photography occurring on the National Mall and monuments. We can help you navigate the fees and regulations so your engagement session goes smoothly and you end up with timeless portraits to enjoy for generations to come.
