When love meets rain, magic happens. Engagement photos on a rainy day in Washington DC have that something special that sets them apart from basic pictures. Maybe it’s the romance. The two of you cuddling under an umbrella with the raindrops creating a damp, dreamy atmosphere around you. Or maybe it’s the creative possibilities that the rain unleashes. There are things that we can create art when rain is falling that we can’t do on a sunny day. Either way, nothing makes your Washington DC engagement portraits magical quite like gently falling precipitation. So if you’re up for that, read on to find out more about what makes these images so special. And how you can get the most out of your engagement session in the rain.
Rainy days may seem gloomy to some. But for us, they are an opportunity to create something truly unique. We know how to embrace the rain and turn it into a romantic symphony. The raindrops become our paintbrush, adding an ethereal touch to your engagement pictures.
Engagement photos in the rain are even more romantic when the setting is the Nation’s Capital. With its iconic landmarks and vibrant atmosphere, Washington DC offers a romantic backdrop for your engagement pictures no matter what the weather is like. The majestic Lincoln Memorial, the charming streets of Georgetown or the picturesque Tidal Basin are all ideal for making your photos stand out. Washington DC's diverse neighborhoods also offer endless possibilities for your engagement session. From the vibrant streets of Adams Morgan to the historic charm of Capitol Hill, we will guide you through the city's hidden gems, capturing your love against the backdrop of its rich history and culture. Add in some gently falling rain, and you’ve got a bit of romance that will really take your images to the next level!
The romance of the Nation’s Capital is great. But we want to give you something that really stands out. Our creative approach will take you way beyond traditional engagement portraits. We know that your love story is unique, so we want to give you something equally special.
As we mentioned above, rain opens up a whole world of creative possibilities that don’t exist when the sun is out. One of our favorite things to do is to set up a flash behind you while you cuddle under an umbrella. Not only does that cause your umbrella to glow (especially if it’s white or translucent), it also illuminates the raindrops. Which makes them stand out from the background and surrounds the two of you in a beautiful, ethereal cloak of starlike points of light. As you can see in this picture, the results are really magical!
If you're worried about the logistics of a rain engagement shoot, fear not! We've got you covered. Here are a few tips to ensure a successful and enjoyable session:
