I had the honor of photographing not one, but two different couples in their wedding day attire this year during the Cherry Blossom peak bloom at the Tidal Basin in Washington, DC. Last week, I shared a peek from Amanda & John’s Cherry Blossom elopement. This week, I’m sharing Jessica and Joshua’s wedding portraits from the Tidal Basin!
Jessica and Joshua grew up and live in Miami — they made the trek all the way from Florida just to have a photographs at the Cherry Blossoms! Joshua’s father drove them up the weekend prior and they were here for a few days, ready to shoot on the best day of the bloom (which I think we nailed!). Being from FL, they were a bit nervous about the weather but luckily, it wasn’t too unkind to them on the day of our shoot! The skies were a bit overcast, but it was an unseasonably warm morning for March.
This sweet couple attended the same high school and have been together for seven years. They are the proud “parents” of an adorable, but crazy!, 2 year old German Shepherd named Banner. While they currently live in Miami, they just bought a new home in Tampa to live in while Josh finishes up school there. They were officially married last year — as Jessica says, Joshua just wanted her to be his wife already… and who can say no to that!? They didn’t have a huge celebration, but their families joined them for their portraits this week in a bit of a “redo”, if you will, of the big day!
These two, and their parents, were so patient while I took them to location after location around the blooms! The result? Stunning wedding portraits that will last them a lifetime!
