I don’t believe in coincidences; I believe that all things are working out for me. When Abby let me know she and her fiancé, Gerry’s Lyft dropped them off in the wrong place for their sunny cherry blossoms engagement session, I flowed with it. I hauled my cookies across the tidal basin to meet them and figured we would just take it from there to find some good locations for their sunny cherry blossoms engagement session photos.
And you guys, that worked out for all of us! The spots I had in mind for Abby & Gerry would have been beautiful, but we ended up finding a few other really gorgeous spots for their photos just by walking around the tidal basin close to where they were dropped off. These are some of my favorite photos from the season and I’m so excited to share them with you today!
Abby and Gerry have been together for eight years and have only been in D.C. for a short time. This was their first trip to see the cherry blossoms and it was so fun to capture those special memories for them. I know I always say this, but I have the best job in the world! Getting to meet fun, sweet, loving couples and getting to witness milestones in their lives is so precious to me. I felt honored to document not only Abby & Gerry’s engagement photos, but their first time seeing the blossoms in all their peak bloom glory.
Abby and Gerry were the kind of couple who didn’t need much instruction once I got them into place, which was fun to watch! I get the feeling that Gerry is pretty funny and Abby loves to laugh – the perfect pair! Gerry would start whispering something and Abby would erupt into huge smiles and big laughs, which had me thinking their life must be really fun together.
Congratulations and best wishes to Abby and Gerry! May the rest of your journey to the altar be full of as much joy as your sunny cherry blossoms engagement session!
