These two are getting married in just a couple of weeks, so it felt like the perfect time to share their DC cherry blossom engagement photos! We actually took these photos last year, pre-pandemic. Due to the way our schedules aligned, they ended up choosing a date a couple of weeks before peak bloom. We weren’t sure how many blossoms would be out, but we figured it would be worth a shot!
It ended up being the best decision because they were the only one of my couples to get cherry blossom photos in DC last year! The lockdown started the very next day. With peak bloom later that month, all of my peak bloom sessions had to postpone until this year. Although I had to go many months without any sessions or weddings, I was thankful I at least had this one to edit and keep me going through it.
Juliet and Zach made the session so much fun too. As you can tell from the photos, they love to laugh together!! Their date selection worked out in more ways than one. The cherry blossoms luckily bloomed enough to have plenty of options. The magnolias were definitely showing off. And no one was there because we were there way before peak bloom! We had a great time wandering around the Tidal Basin and finding the perfect backdrops for their cherry blossom engagement photos.
Now I’m counting down the days until I get to see them again! Their wedding is in South Carolina, and I am so ready for the beach. Congratulations again, Juliet and Zach, and I’ll see you soon in Murrell’s Inlet!
