Cherry Blossom Engagement Session

A Sunrise Cherry Blossom Engagement Session In D.C.

What better way to celebrate your engagement and pay homage to the city you love than with a Cherry Blossom engagement session? Every Spring, the famous trees decorate the Tidal Basin in a show of pink and white blooms. It is a sight you wont want to miss!

What is the best time of day to visit the Tidal Basin for an engagement session with the Cherry Blossoms?

I recommend scheduling your engagement session at the Tidal Basin for the morning, as the sun is rising. Especially during peak bloom, the Tidal Basin is very busy with sightseers excited to see the beautiful flowers. Going in the morning ensures beautiful light (essential for beautiful photos) and less people in the background of your images.


When Is Peak Bloom For The D.C. Cherry Blossoms?

For updates on when the Cherry Blossoms will be at their prettiest (peak bloom), visit cherryblossomwatch.com.

Typically, peak bloom is the third or fourth week in March.  Tidal-basin-engagement-photographer Magnolia trees also bloom around the Tidal Basin and make a beautiful backdrop for engagement photos. 

Parking At The Tidal Basin During The Cherry Blossom Festival

Parking at the Tidal Basin can be hard to find when the Cherry Blossoms are blooming. If you are able, I recommend taking an uber. If you are lucky, you can find parking in one of the nearby parking lots. Plan to arrive extra early to secure paid parking.
