You may be used to seeing the monuments in the nation’s capital, but here the gardens get a turn. Each stunning photograph of this engagement creates a new fairytale in our minds. The flowers and lighting are the perfect backdrops. Even the bottle of champagne becomes a fantastic prop! Take a step out of the hustle and bustle of the city to find this oasis hidden away in Washington, D.C. It is a great place to represent love and the new steps towards a wedding! There may even be a great place to get away like this in your city!
Photographer Nikki Daskalakis gives us the behind-the-scenes of this engagement shoot in the capital in Washington D.C.,
Andra and Patrick’s engagement session was in the lush gardens of Dumbarton Oaks in Washington, DC. Andra wore two gowns–one of which gave us old-world romance. The For Love & Lemons gown with its blush tulle swayed as they danced among flowers, spilling champagne from her cup. The couple will wed later in 2022 in D.C.
We’re still getting intense secret garden vibes from this entire shoot. We love it. There is nothing like the feeling of being in the city, but it seems like you are somewhere else entirely. Being there with the love of your life makes it even better. Your engagement is such an exciting time! Take advantage of the amount of joy you feel with a photoshoot that represents it.
