We had a great time capturing Jess and Tim in a rare moment of amazing warm weather between snow storms this winter! We spent some time over at the Iwo Jima Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial where Jess often runs Marathons and Tim cheers her on! We had perfect beautiful light for some great sunset images and warm fun sun flares. Congratulations Jess and Tim!
On a late winter afternoon, Reene & Ankur set out to shoot some "spring time" engagement shots... I think we managed to get a few great ones even though it was 30 degrees out and there was snow on the ground! Reene and Ankur are some of the toughest people I know! It takes a certain type of bravery to be out taking engagement shots in a sleeveless shirt in 30 degree weather!
We started out by the American Pharmacists Association building near the national mall, which was very fitting since Ankur is a Pharmacist! We started with traditional portraits with the bright sun and trees in the background, then played around with some backlit piggy back shots.
It's never too cold for a piggyback ride! These are some of my favorite photos from the session!
Both Reene and Ankur were really interested in getting some shots with the monuments in the background. It's a short walk from the American Pharmacists Association over to the Lincoln memorial and on our way we took advantage of a puddle someone left laying around.
The Lincoln made a gorgeous backdrop. We stopped on the North side for a few sitting shots with the monument in the background. We then moved up to the columns to try to take a handful of creative environmentals. Before moving on, we stopped by the South side which was being illuminated by the golden sun and took some sunset shots.
We managed to catch a gorgeous sunset with the river frozen over at the Memorial Bridge. We had a great time! Next time it will hopefully be a bit warmer!
