Though we provide wedding photography services to the Washington, DC area, and also love to do destination weddings, we actually live across the Potomac River in Arlington, VA. We love it, especially since many of our wedding clients reside here too. That makes it very easy for us to do engagement shoots without having to travel very far!
Arlington may not have the famous monuments and landmarks like Washington, but there are a lot of great locations that make great backdrops for epic engagement images. Though dominated by buildings and concrete, there are a lot of green spaces that, with a bit of creativity, can help make a future husband and wife look great on film.
One of our favorites is Quincy Park, a lovely little spot in North Arlington. Filled with maple trees that turn dazzling colors in the fall, the site offers lots of little nooks that give a little privacy away from the bustle of a busy Washington suburb.
This loving couple also lives in Arlington and loved the idea of doing their engagement pictures in Quincy Park. They were very private by nature and liked being able to cuddle in public but away from prying eyes.
