Spring Tidal Basin Engagement Session, DC | Melanie & Javier

Set the Scene: Sunrise Serenade at Tidal Basin

Cherry Blossom season is a big deal in DC, so it’s no wonder that when Melanie and Javier chose the Tidal Basin for their sunrise engagement session, we found ourselves amid a flurry of early risers. 🌸 With a rich history rooted in the 1912 gift of cherry trees from Japan to the United States, the Tidal Basin has become one of the most iconic spots in Washington, DC. These trees symbolize friendship and renewal, making it a beautiful setting for an engagement shoot.

The morning greeted us with overcast skies and a slight chill in the air, but nothing could dampen the spirits of this dynamic duo. Armed with warm smiles, we set out on our waterfront stroll, weaving through the scenic pathways along the basin. Melanie and Javier were total troopers, braving the brisk breeze as they wandered hand in hand, soaking in the beauty of the surroundings.

But wait, there’s more! We decided to have some fun on our travels to the 2nd location and grabbed some scooters to head there on! With laughter in the air and a sense of childlike glee, they hopped on those scooters and zipped our way towards the Smithsonian and Castle, adding a playful twist to our morning adventure. And let me tell you, witnessing Melanie and Javier’s joy as they whizzed around was an absolute delight!

As the sun continued its ascent, casting a soft, golden glow over the city, we wrapped up our session with a quick outfit change near the majestic Smithsonian and Castle. But even as the morning drew to a close, the warmth of Melanie and Javier’s love lingered in the air, leaving us with memories to treasure for a lifetime. 💖
