The Best Engagement Photo Session Locations in Washington DC

It can be a tough decision to decide the right spot or location for your engagement photos. You want to choose something that fits your personal style or maybe has a personal meaning for you as a couple. I’ve rounded up the best engagement photo session locations in Washington DC that I’ve shot at over the past couple of years.

Meridian Hill Park

When couples tell me they want a mix of nature AND city, I always recommend this park as an engagement session location. It’s got DC architecture in the stairs and fountain but tons of green space as well. It’s a win-win.

National Gallery of Art

NGoA is a great spot for DC monuments and architecture without having to pay the hefty permit fees of The National Mall. You can also sneak inside for photos in their inside garden space.

Cherry Blossom Festival

The DC classic. If you can brave the crowds, it’s SO worth shooting during peak bloom. The color of the petals is incredible and it’s the most romantic. *Photography permit applies

Lincoln Memorial

Definitely need to be a morning person for the Lincoln Memorial so you don’t have tons of tourists in the background but man is it worth it even just for the calm and serene environment it provides that early. It’s magical. *Photography permit fees apply.

Union Market

I recommend shooting here on a Monday evening when the market is closed but I love recommending this to couples who don’t want the traditional DC engagement session. I love the color of all the murals and the urban feel of this spot.
