This romantic and peaceful sunrise engagement session at the Jefferson Memorial was photographed by Hannah Bjorndal on Friday, November 2, 2018. Hannah is a Jefferson Memorial engagement photographer. She is available for weddings and engagements in the Washington, D.C. metro area, nationally & internationally.
Another Jefferson Memorial engagement session in the books! For November, this was an uncharacteristically warm morning. I was SO thankful that the rain held off, and the cloudy sky made for the most beautiful, soft light!
When I think about moving out of the D.C. area (full disclaimer, we are NOT planning on moving anytime soon!), one of the first things that comes to mind is missing the monuments. One of the simple pleasures of my photography career has been frequent visits to historic D.C. landmarks. Places that people travel from all around the world to visit are places that currently feel like a second home to me. I absolutely love being the first one to the Jefferson Memorial at sunrise, before any tourist buses have arrived. Every time, it’s a peaceful and surreal experience. On Friday, I sat in the inner circle of the monument in silence and admired the structured. Truly, it never gets old!
Lauren & Kevin are both in the Coast Guard (thank you both for your service!!!!) and moved to D.C. a few years ago. They’re from opposite sides of the U.S., but the Coast Guard brought them together! I’m so excited to be photographing their wedding next June in Arlington – my home! After thinking about a lot of different potential engagement session locations, we settled on this one, and I think it was perfect!
So thrilled to share my favorites with you!!
