Cherry Blossom Engagement Session | Victoria + Alex |
Beautiful things sometimes happen when we least expect. Earlier this year, Victoria had expressed her desire to go to DC for cherry blossom engagement photos. Now cherry blossoms are sort of a hit or miss, it’s about a two-week window and if you live far from DC as we do, you can either get there too early when nothings sprouted yet or too late when all the petals are on the ground. After a severe snowstorm in March, a few failed predictions, and horrific traffic, there we were seated under a blush tree having a picnic. Turns out we hit jackpot, unanticipated we got to DC on the day when the cherry blossoms were at their peak bloom.
The tender petals, soft blush, and spring sprouts all conveyed the perfect love story between Victoria and Alex. Thank for an incredible experience and the delicious sushi we had later :).

Get there early, parking was a pain in the rear. We almost had to desperately pay someone to vacate their parking spot but everything eventually worked out.
Also, the place was littered with tourist and locals, so that could be a good or bad thing depending on what you’re aiming for.
