Daughters of the American Revolution Styled Engagement Session
The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) is a women’s service organization in Washington, D.C. that is passionate about promoting historic preservation, education, and patriotism. The DAR has been active for over a century and consists of over 190,000 members. I chose to shoot a fully styled engagement session at the Daughters of the American Revolution in the heart of Washington, D.C. I love being a part of an engaged couple’s love story by shooting their engagement photos. This particular engagement portrait session was inspired by Lo’s Brazilian roots, hence the South America and North America sides at the Organization of American States.
Perfect florals to match a perfect dress
I loved shooting this Daughters of the American Revolution engagement session with this beautiful couple. Lo’s textured and flowy dress was elegant and stunning. I asked Emily at Love Blooms to use her dress as inspiration for the floral color palette. The floral arrangement was perfection! With petite daisies and swirly roses, the colors in this bouquet beautifully accented this Daughters of the American Revolution styled engagement session.
A romantic sunset to finish off the day
As the afternoon in Washington, D.C. came to a close, the sunset at the DAR perfectly complimented the sunset tones of the bouquet and dress. There is nothing more romantic than a beautiful sunset to finish off a perfect engagement session. I chose to capture this DAR styled shoot on a Fuji 400H because it has the ability to really bring out the pink hues, which was exactly what I was looking for!
I loved styling and shooting this Daughters of the American Revolution styled engagement shoot. There is a lot of vision and planning that goes into creating a styled shoot. Adequate preparation and styling make a huge difference if you want to capture magazine-quality photos.
