Washington D.C. Cherry Blossom Engagement Session

Sydney and Patrick’s Cherry Blossom Engagement Session in D.C.

Washington D.C. in the Spring is a magical time. People come from all over the country (and the world!) to see the infamous Cherry Blossoms as they make their appearance in March. The pink and white blooms decorate the Tidal Basin and nearby memorials. It is no wonder so many people love to come and experience the magic in person. The Cherry Blossoms are especially beautiful backdrop for engagement sessions. While parking may be hard to find and you may have to weave through crowds of people (even at 7 in the morning!), the photos are SO worth it! Patience is key when visiting D.C. during the Cherry Blossom Festival. With a little patience and good use of camera angles, you can make it seem like you are the only people at the Tidal Basin, despite being surrounded by other sightseers.

Sydney and Patrick are lovers of travel, taking trips to Paris, France and most recently, NewYork to see the Broadway show Hamilton. They met at George Mason University, where they studied accounting. They have two sweet Golden Retrievers, who will present on the wedding day.

Sydney and Patrick are saying “I Do” next summer at The Inn at Willow Grove. They chose Willow Grove for the beautiful scenery and the experience it would give their guests. The beautiful venue has an all weekend rental, and family and friends are able to stay in private cabins on the property.
