Capturing a magical elopement in the Washington National Cathedral and the Bishop’s Garden seemed like a dream as the sun rose from the horizon and served as the best lighting for the couple, Jen and Edgar.
Washington National Cathedral will leave you in awe of its stunning Neo-Gothic architecture and has always been one of the top locations for photo sessions, you can never go wrong with its classy and classic dream look. It can accommodate approximately 250 people and facilitates weddings of all faiths and traditions. Along the way through, you’ll find the Bishop’s Garden that’s just behind the National Cathedral. A lovely hidden garden that is beautifully maintained and filled with emerald foliage giving the venue a fairy-tale-like feel, in no doubt a good location as well for perfect photos.
Jen and Edgar got engaged in November 2021 and planned to originally be married in August 2022, however, due to the bride’s father’s health conditions they rushed to have the wedding earlier in May 2022 so he can be in attendance and have the strength to walk Jennifer down the aisle. With that being said they were not able to get a lot of portraits done or some engagement pictures they wanted either. They just had a friend who came out with them to take some pictures with their camera. But they wanted to get some professional pictures done and when they reached out to me, we planned and executed the romantic elopement session just for the two of them on their originally planned date of August 21st, 2022.
Jen and Edgar were amazing and I wanted to do all I can to give them perfect portraits that perfectly photograph an amazing moment in their lives. I made sure to take care of the photography permit for the venue and to get the best possible lighting, we started preparing really early to get magnificent sunrise shots. It was all worth it as I captured their most precious moment, that they can fondly look back on.
