cherry blossom engagement session

// allie & greg

// april 2014

Allie & Greg are a fun couple with awesome dogs and A LOT of patience. It was cherry blossom season in D.C. and Allie & Greg were looking forward to having their engagement photos taken with their dogs along the tidal basin. I was a little nervous about the crowds when they suggested shooting around the basin because the cherry blossom festival is a madhouse of people, but we remained optimistic!

It was also a windy day and the normally tame pups were very excited with their new surroundings and were preoccupied with playing and exploring. Despite all of the obstacles, we forged ahead and took stunning photos. Allie & Greg were great to work with and their photos captured the day perfectly. Can't wait to shoot their wedding.

When we found this spot to shoot we were amazed. Amidst the crowds of people, we stumbled upon what Allie called a "secret garden." It was tucked away behind some trees and gave us a nice spot to shoot away from the masses.
