Even though I may not live in the DC area, I have to admit, being a DC Wedding Photographer is something I wanted to be specifically for the cherry blossoms!!!!!! And, I lucked out with the best couple on the planet!!!

I had always dreamed about doing a session during Cherry Blossom Season since forever!!!! Just the beauty of the blossoms, how they can be beautiful while they are vibrant pink and even the light white, and the reflection of the water, is just to die for!

What we were not prepared for was the cold, the fact that there was a bomb scare in the area the night before, closing many streets, or the fact that parking was crazy cause of said closed streets!!!! Even though all of that craziness that DC is known for, I can’t believe the magic we captured this day!

I met Mady a few years ago in Hawaii when she was the STUNNING MODEL for one of our shoots at Maleana Gardens in Hawaii back in 2018!!! It was this beautiful sunset session, and I remember thinking Mady looked just like Kerry Washington! You can’t tell me you don’t see it!

Little did I know, just a few years later, I would be photographing her wedding to the man of her dreams!

Of course, Mady and Isaiah had other plans for their wedding. Then, the year that shall not be named happened. And then, they were yet another wedding couple who had to make adjustments for their big day! As this beautiful couple are both military and stationed here, they decided to go for it, and get married!! And I am so happy that they did!!!!

Even with all the crazy logistics that day, we wanted to set up the first look for them, and we found the perfect spot with the Washington Memorial right behind them! It literally was the MOST PERFECT MORNING! The light was so beautiful!!!
