The National Portrait Gallery in downtown D.C. is a very popular location for wedding and engagement pictures. It has a little bit for every couple ranging from the classical portraits to the modern and abstract. Every so often new artists feature their art in the more modern part of the museum.
Because it is also one of our favorite locations to photograph couple we were even more humbled and honored when this image was chosen amongst the winners of round 9 Masters of German Wedding Photography!
We met this couple in the at the entrance of the museum and started taking their pictures in the glass ceilinged Robert and Arlene Kogod courtyard because the light is beautiful there at any time of the day. From there we passed the more classical exhibits that were in line with what the couple had envisioned for their more classical pics.
At the end we passed through the modern section of the museum we came across Gene Davis' Hot Beat exhibition. The colorful stripes provided a great backdrop for these two to pose in front of for their images. And those are the ones that they chose to print for their home!
