This was my second DC Cherry Blossom Engagement Session for 2019! DC Cherry Blossom sessions make for some super early mornings but are always worth it. Melat and Kinfu met me at the Jefferson Memorial and we walked around the National Mall capturing their engagement photos. How incredible are they dressed? Melat even had her friend who is doing her hair and makeup for their July wedding do her hair and makeup before their engagement session!! We met at 6:45am so I can’t imagine when they started. Talk about commitment!

The weather was perfect for a DC Cherry Blossom Engagement Session. I even met a tourist from CT in town for business who spend his morning photographing the blossoms and taking in the views before getting back to business. I told him he was blessed with the most perfect day!!

Melat and Kinfu are getting married this July in Alexandria. Can’t wait to photograph and watch them get married!

This is where I love sharing recent weddings, sessions, and tips & tricks for helping you plan your wedding. When I'm not capturing a wedding day, you'll find me enjoying the outdoors, photographing my kids, my travels, or working on a project. My passion is telling stories of marriage to motherhood and I hope I get to tell yours.
