The cherry blossoms, the monuments, and the rich history certainly are just a few reasons why thousand of couples come here each year to celebrate their love!

As much fun as it is for us to visit Washington DC each year, we’ve definitely learned the do’s and don’ts when visiting to make our couples experience that much better. Here’s a few tips that may help when scheduling your engagement photos in Washington DC.

Tip #1

If you can, try to schedule a morning shoot (8-10am) I am definitely not a morning person, but there’s nothing more frustrating than trying to take a beautiful shot of a couple with hundreds of people in your background

Tip #2

Pick a general area and stick with it. DC can be overwhelming when trying to see every part. A 1 hour session can turn in 3 hours when you try to shoot at too many locations.

Arrive early for parking, an often overlooked aspect of the shoot. Finding a good parking spot can take awhile, so show up a little early to avoid a stressful situation.
