Romantic Sunrise Lincoln Memorial Engagment

Ever wonder where the best DC engagement locations are?

Nothing beats the National Mall at Sunrise, and I can’t wait to show you some of my favorite DC engagement locations around Lincoln Memorial.

DC has so many perfect locations for a romantic engagement session, and with the Jefferson Memorial under construction, I’ve had more this season than usual at Lincoln Memorial instead. I’m not sad about that at all, because there’s just so many opportunities to play with the light and lines!

Not to spill all the tips and tricks as a professional photographer in DC, but dealing with crowds, road closures, protests and the like, timing is everything. I have to give a huge shout out to all my couples who face the early mornings to catch the first rays of sunshine at these beautiful DC engagement locations, in order to beat the crowds!

Emily & Matias were one of those couples, and I’d say they knocked it out of the park!

It is important to note that NPS property does require a permit for professional photography of any kind at the National Mall and Memorials. As a part of keeping the monuments kept up (not to mention, running a legal business that follows the rules!), it’s important to me to continue to pour into the National Park Service and keep our history going. I know it’s an added cost for sessions at the Monuments, however, it is absolutely worth it! The history, and the architecture can’t be beat. I love DC for that reason! So many cool engagement locations, and I can’t wait to show you more of my favorites!
