Elizabeth and Keith booked me for their wedding at the Fathom Gallery in Washington DC in 2021. Right after booking we immediately scheduled their engagement session during one of my trips up North. In addition to getting photos around their old neighborhood in DC, they also wanted to take advantage of the monuments that Washington DC has to offer. The goal was to stay away from the crowds (we were in the middle of a pandemic after all), so that’s when we decided on Library of Congress engagement photos.
Fall time in DC is so beautiful. I know the area is mostly known for their spring cherry blossoms, but the falls are just as pretty in my opinion. It was really fun randomly walking the streets of where Elizabeth and Keith use to live. Old cities have some many fun and cute nooks that are fun to photograph. I love the old railings, walkways, and historic homes. So much character with every turn.
After spending the first part of the session around the neighborhoods, we took an uber to the mall where we were dropped off in front of the Library of Congress in Washington DC. There was NO ONE THERE! It was so much walking around and getting to photograph Elizabeth and Keith all over the stone steps and columns. We also ventured to some of the nearby buildings for a variety of photos along the strip. And the whole time we were the only ones walking around. I kept thinking how crazy it ws that we were in the mall in Washington DC doing an engagement session and we not once had to dodge other people so that they weren’t in the background. Make editing a lot nicer for me ;) I can’t wait to come back next fall for their wedding at Tudor Place and the Fathom Gallery!
