For Olivia & Nick, both residents of the DC area, a cherry blossom engagement session was a must. They didn’t even flinch when we recommended meeting at sunrise to avoid some of the pedestrian traffic, although come sunrise this past April, there was hardly a cherry blossom tree in the Tidal Basin that wasn’t offering shade to some photographer or his or her subjects. Cherry blossom season in DC always doubles as a small photographer’s reunion.
This begs the question – how to capture something unique?
Follow your instincts. Follow that good light. Be true to your client. Be true to your own artistic vision. Focus on what you see through your viewfinder, not at what you’ve seen other people post on social media.
Olivia & Nick have organic chemistry and they are such a pleasure to work with; we’re beyond thrilled to be able to photograph their wedding soon.
