While those moments are undeniably special, your journey together is full of unique occasions worth capturing. Let's dive into some fantastic ideas for creating everlasting memories.

1. Anniversaries

Every year you spend together is a milestone worth celebrating. Anniversaries are the perfect opportunity to embrace your journey. Whether it's your first, fifth, or tenth anniversary, a photoshoot captures the growth of your love over time.

2. Getting engaged

Many couples opt to have engagement photos done before their wedding day. The photos can be used for announcements, wedding websites, and being displayed at the wedding. Engagement session is a great way to get to know your wedding photographer and a chance to show off your personalities and dynamic as a couple. The engagement session can be anything you want it to be - next to iconic DC monuments, having a picnic in your favorite park, or something more stylized. I'd love to help make your vision come true.

3. Holiday cards

Year end holiday cards are a great way to stay in touch with your loved ones. Getting professional couples portrait for your holiday cards ensures that your cards are keepsakes that spread joy and love to others.


Love is an adventure so why not get couples photos while you are exploring Washington DC together? Capture your fun memories against the iconic backdrop of Washington, DC with a touch of timeless romance.


Sometimes, the most beautiful moments are the everyday ones. From cooking together to lazy Sunday mornings, these candid snapshots encapsulate the simplicity of your love. If you love photojournalistic photography, this could be your cup of tea!


Personal achievements, like a new job or graduation, are milestones that deserve recognition. A photoshoot at this time celebrates your accomplishments as a team.

7. Embrace THE fleeting beauty of SEASOns

Washington DC enjoys the beauty that comes with the changing of seasons. Each season has its highlights from cherry blossoms in the spring, to sunflower in the summer, to fall foliage in the autumn, and snowy days in the winter - you can have a collection of couples portrait from the different seasons to document the passage of time and your journey together.

8. Just because

Maybe you don't have a specific reason for wanting a couples portrait session other than because you want one.

9. Welcoming a new family member

Whether it is a human family member or a furry family member, couples portrait can help commemorate the occasion and share the wonderful news with others.

10. Farewell to DC

Washington DC is a transient place and it is expected that many of us will be leaving what we have built here for another place to call home. For those of us that loved being a part of DC, a couples portrait is a wonderful way to say goodbye to this city. I know that if/when my wife and I leave DC, we will for sure hire a photographer to pay homage to all our memories made in this city. We would probably get photos of us in our apartment and walking around Capitol Hill.
