You'd never know there were crowds of people at the tidal basin for some of these engagement pictures taken during peak cherry blossom season. Capitol Hill is also a good spot for old cherry trees and usually lighter crowds. But on a nice day, people are everywhere. So a good photographer works around the tourists.
This extremely busy couple, both working on advanced degrees, are incredibly kind to each other and others. It's uplifting just to be around them. I meet so many amazing people when they hire me as their photogapher, and it's an honor to photograph them.
