Washington D.C. Engagement Session at National Mall

Although Katie and Tom booked me as their Los Angeles wedding photographer, they both live in Washington D.C. Therefore, it seemed only natural that we have their engagement session in the city they now call home. If you’re wondering about the weather, I think I should mention it was “butt ass cold” when did this session–as in the low 20s. Katie had goose bumps the size of small grapes but she was one hell of an awesome trooper! Tom just took it like Superman. Speaking of which, do you think Tom looks a bit like Christopher Reeve as seen in the early Superman films? Anyway, here are a few photos from their session on and around the National Mall in Washington D.C.

Lincoln Memorial
There are many steps leading up to the Lincoln memorial. And don’t they look cute walking them?

I was waiting the security guards to tell us to move along as our permits didn’t extend to the inside of the Lincoln Memorial–but we were spared.

At the base of the Washington Monument. The wind was WHIPPING me around when I took this photo. It must have been a wind chill factor of minus 22 degrees!

Supreme Court Building with Couple on Steps
Katie and Tom are both attorneys. It seemed only natural to have them sit on the steps of the Supreme Court.

Our permits didn’t extend to inside the Library of Congress so I asked Katie and Tom to simply walk around and frequently sit or stand in some cool while I photographed them surreptitiously from across the room.
