Since we are based in the Nation's Capital we feel very fortunate that there is never any shortage of places to photograph couples at. One of the most popular and sought after locations is the Capitol Building which is an iconic Washington DC institutions.
The bride and groom got ready at the Phoenix Park Hotel just a couple of blocks from the Capitol and the historic Postal Square building. After their first look in the hotel, they decided to take a few more pictures in the foyer with their parents and siblings before wandering over to the steps of the Postal Square with their entire bridal party. There we photographed the bride with her bridesmaids, the groom with his groomsmen and various different combinations because the stairs were wide enough to pose everyone.
Since we were also very close to the Capitol Building the husband and wife to be wanted to take a typical DC picture. After a few of the standard shots they were in the process of crossing over back to their hotel to leave for their wedding venue when the groom turned back for a brief moment to look at the woman he loves. And this in addition to being right in front of the Capitol Building allowed us to capture an iconic DC moment for them.
The peak of the Cherry Blossoms in Washington, DC is always something people look forward to. The gentle white and pink flowers provide a beautiful backdrop for engagement photos and wedding pictures.
Since this wedding took place around the time these flowers were in bloom we drove to the tidal basin before going to 101 Constitution, which was were they were getting married at. Once there the bride and groom posed in front of the Cherry Blossom trees with the key bridge in the background.
