Zahra & Sunjay – Engagement Session – Washington, DC

Washington D.C. shoots are always different than the rest as we usually start our day pretty early in the morning before there is lot of crowd.  This was definitely one of the most planned shoots we have done in D.C. as we were not only able to cover 3 locations in one shoot with 3 different outfits but we could spend some incredible time with Zahra and Sunjay whose love story is just as sweet as they are.


We started our day at Lincoln Memorial which is definitely a landmark for sunrise in District of Columbia, the capital.  Usually people start showing up early in the morning to see the beautiful sun rise and we all were there on time around 6 a.m. on this chilly fall morning.  We got some stunning silhouette shots as it was dark when we started and followed it with some cute images of the couple with their special tree at this place where Sunjay actually proposed Zahra and surprised her with a ring, aren’t they just too cute.

We then moved to another location in the city which is Meridian Hill.  It was our first time here and it was something the couple found as they were local to the city and knew the place pretty well.  This place had beautiful architecture with waterfall in the background and the lovely blue flowy dress which Zahra wore complemented so well with it.  We got some lovely romantic pictures at this location along with some of their singles and of course an epic shot in the end as always.


Lastly, we went to Union Market which had a beautiful market place along with an eatery where we all refreshed a little bit from our early morning wakeup calls and celebrated our day with some shots J.  Moving on, we got some cool shots with beautiful murals which were all over that place and then moved on to the roof which was something newly done and had an amazing spot where we could enjoy some time playing cornhole and getting some unique photographs with the flags of their favorite football college teams along with the cute letters of their initials gifted by their friends.  Overall, we ended the day with a nice lunch with the couple at the cafeteria there and we just couldn’t thank them enough for such an outstanding shoot and we all just cannot wait for their upcoming wedding in 2020 which will be just as fun-filled as this bewildering engagement session.
