When a couple thinks of taking engagement photos in DC they often come up with the usual spots – the National Mall with it’s Monuments, Georgetown’s waterfront, one of the many museums or even the Kennedy Center.
Often times the lesser known and quieter locations are overlooked when it comes to taking pictures.
This future bride and groom wanted to include their two dogs in their snaps. And for that reason chose the place where they would walk their puppies every morning, their favorite trail.
The Washington & Old Dominion trail also known as W&OD trail runs through the counties of Northern Virginia. It starts in Arlington Country and was the perfect place for this couple's engagement session as they lived in Falls Church.
We scheduled their images during the golden hour when the green of the trees were basket in a soft light, making both the people we were photographing and the background for their pics glow.
