Nichole and Chris are getting married next May 30 at The Oaks in St. Michaels. They both live and work in DC, so it will be a destination wedding for their local friends and family, as well as the out-of-towners. Who wouldn’t love an invitation to get out of the city and kick off the summer with a great celebration on the Eastern Shore?!
We decided to make their engagement session all about DC. They took me to their favorite hangouts one Sunday afternoon this fall. It was really fun getting acquainted with Nichole and Chris, and also just getting out of the burbs and enjoying our nation’s capital!
We started out at the National Cathedral. I was totally overwhelmed with the space; the architecture is so grandiose with so many nooks and crannies to pose Nichole and Chris in…I could have spent all day there!
By the time we got downtown the sun was starting to set. I was hoping the crowds would thin out and we’d get some cool evening light, and we did.
Nichole and Chris love the WWII Memorial. Especially since Maryland (Chris’ home state) and New Hampshire (Nichole’s) are right next to each other. This was a must-have shot!
It is really cool to shoot here with a wide angle lens. I love that you can see the National Monument and the Lincoln Memorial from one vantage point.
