In a city as diverse and unique as Washington, DC, there are many locations in which to take your wedding photos. If you want your images to have a distinct feel of the nation's capital, there are always the monuments and the Capitol building that are the unmistakable landmarks. But if you are a bride and groom that want to still get the DC feel in your wedding pics away from the usual photo spots, then the Ronald Reagan Building might be a good option.
Named after former President Ronald Reagan, it is the city's first federal building designed for both governmental and private sector purposes. From a photography point of view, it has beautiful arched passages and a large garden with lots of natural light that make it a great location for your wedding portraits.
Because the Ronald Reagan Building's architecture frames couples so well, this bride and groom loved the idea of going there for their wedding portraits. After we had taken their initial images in the archways, we stepped out onto the large stone stairs that lead to the main street. As we turned back, we saw the bride and groom share an unguarded moment. The bride, a former classical dancer, pulled up and fluffed the back of her dress in a way that was both playful and graceful. The white of her wedding gown caught the light behind her perfectly.
