Lincoln & Jefferson Summer Portrait Session | DC Photographer

Jackie and Brian’s anniversary session at the National Mall was one for the books. From the unforgettable sunrise, to their picture-perfect outfits, it was simply perfection.

Their session took place at sunrise, which I always recommend for photos at the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorial. Although it requires getting up extra early, the reward is worth it. When you have the monuments to yourself for the most part, it is truly magical! It’s even better when you get a stunning sunrise like this one.

Jackie and Brian chose two locations for their photos. We started at the Lincoln Memorial. Classic and iconic with its tall columns, it was a beautiful choice. Next, we went to the Jefferson Memorial. They really liked the curved architecture with the columns, which is a unique feature at this location! Being able to see the Washington Monument from both locations is a bonus.

I also have to mention how much I adored Jackie’s dress. The colorful floral print was gorgeous against the white marble backdrops. It was also flowy, adding beautiful movement to all the photos. Brian looked handsome in his suit as well! These two are a good-looking couple, and I was honored to be their photographer.
