Thank you to Christian and Cristian for proving that you can have gorgeous portraits at the Tidal Basin any time of year. Many people associate the area with the Cherry Blossom Festival, but the truth is that it’s a beautiful place any time of year.
That’s particularly true during the sunlit golden hours just before twilight, and especially if you’re photographing a couple who fit together so perfectly.
As if their names weren’t indicative enough. Christian and Cristian? It almost feels planned.
And just like my last couple, Errin and Lee, these two made the session feel incredibly natural and fun. The middle portrait below is proof enough. Believe me, piggy back rides aren’t in my usual list of go-to poses, I just happened to be lucky enough to get to photograph two fun loving people with a sense of humor.
To Christian and Cristian – thanks to you two, I couldn’t imagine these portraits having turned out more perfectly than they did. You know it’s a good sign when you have to spend a couple of hours just trying to choose which ones to show. Congratulations to you both!
