cherry blossoms

Sara + Ali :: Washington DC Tidal Basin Engagement

The Tidal Basin in Washington DC was alive with pink cherry blossoms early this year.

I always try to do things a bit differently than I've done things in past shoots if they're in the same location, and this time we walked all the way around the opposite side of the main cherry blossom trees, near the Roosevelt Memorial, where there were less people and more diverse scenery.  Pro tip!

I had an incredible time with Sara and Ali, and their love for each other was wonderfully apparent as we explored DC together!

We headed down to the Tidal Basin at the Jefferson Memorial in Washington DC to rock this awesome engagement session!  The cherry blossoms were in full bloom and the tourists threatened to photobomb all my all in all it was pretty great!  So stoked for their wedding in June! p.s. never underestimate the power of the iPhone light in near-pitch dark.
