I first met up with beautiful bride-to-be Heather to talk wedding day details back in 2015, so it is safe to say that this wedding was in the works for quite some time.
The reason why planning took place so early was a great one; Heather really wanted to take engagement photos against a gorgeous backdrop of cherry blossoms.
Can’t argue with that.
Her extremely glamorous LaFemme dress was truly marvelous; she had ordered it specifically for the engagement photoshoot and it was quite the head-turner. Justin was similarly dapper in a grayish-blue suit. This couple really looked every inch the style stars!
Despite the early start, and not being much of a morning person, we had an amazing time together during our session. We capped off their stunning shoot with Heather and Justin enjoying some celebratory bubbly. It was also a treat to be able to play around with shadows when the sun wasn’t in the equation. In fact, this actually allowed me to take a few pretty interesting shots, which I think turned out rather spectacularly.
After we wrapped up that image-capturing session, we popped over to City Center DC for a quick zip under the cherry blossom lanterns that had been draped above the streets. The love birds switched their outfits up a bit, opting for a more laid-back (yet still fantastically chic) vibe.
It was really a fun day, all in all. They are clearly besotted with one another and it was a pleasure to be able to have such an open, energetic pair in front of the lens.
Stick around for event more photos of this couple—their wedding is right around the corner.
