The Unexpected Shot | Washington DC Engagement Session

Sometimes the most unexpected moments are usually the best. at around 6:30 in the morning, on our way to the cherry blossoms in Washington DC, for their engagement photography session, I saw an amazing opportunity as the sun peeked above the horizon. Abruptly I told my couple we needed to pull over (did I mention that we were driving on a highway?) because the light was absolutely gorgeous.

I’m so happy that we did because the images that came out were so cinematic and golden. The remainder of the day was riddled with inconsistent weather, ranging from dark clouds to intense sunlight. Although we got amazing shots throughout the day, I wanted to share this image as a reminder to any couple, trust your photographer! Sometimes our request may sound absurd like pulling off a highway for a quick 5 minute shoot, but with your faith in our eyes and experience, you could get amazing images as a result.
