December 2, 2015: engagement session at the Tidal Basin
My friends Chris and Jessica asked me to take some engagement photos for them. Jessica wanted to incorporate some DC monuments into the shoot. The Jefferson Memorial might be my favorite, so we started on its front steps.
I'm particularly fond of these distant shots. Shout out to Jessica for suggesting that we include the rays of light through the columns.
We walked to the FDR Memorial next. Jessica got a little goofy. :-)
This grove of cherry trees was a really nice spot for photos. Even in bright mid-morning sunlight, the leaves provided even shade.
We ended our session with a few shots of Chris and Jessica wearing their favorite teams' jerseys. As an Auburn fan, I have to admit that I was tempted to Photoshop an Auburn shirt over Jessica's Alabama apparel. :-)
Congratulations, Chris and Jessica! I hope you guys have a great life together.
