Valeria and John e-mailed me earlier this winter about the possibility of doing their engagement session during the peak bloom of the cherry blossoms along the Tidal Basin in Washington, DC.

It’s no secret that timeline planning is one of my favorite parts of being a wedding photographer!

Just like my own blog, popular wedding resources and blogs need SOMETHING to share with their readers or else their engagement will drop — that’s just logic, right?
