A wedding is a story – your love story—filled with moments of romance, contemplation, silliness and adventure. Your engagement photos should illustrate all that your love is – and even catch the surprises that made you fall in love in the first place.
If you’re looking for a natural respite from the DC concrete jungle, Theodore Roosevelt Island may be the perfect place for your Washington DC engagement photography session. Just north of the Roosevelt Bridge on George Washington Memorial Parkway, the island is lush with vegetation and it has trails that, despite how crowded the island may get, can still make you feel secluded.
A stone’s throw away from the National Mall, the Smithsonian Hirsshorn Sculpture Garden off Jefferson Drive is an oasis of art. The garden does not allow photographers to bring in tripods, but that should not stop you from starting your photo session there. With sculptures by famous sculptors settling in between the shaded grassy areas, this garden is an idyllic backdrop for your Washington DC wedding photography.

We asked our past brides via Facebook to upload their favorite portrait from their wedding and other Bella brides and fans would vote for their favorite. Congratulations to Shamikia and Phillip who are our November winners. Their beautiful wedding is featured below!
How they met: They met in 2000 at our friend's college homecoming and dated for 10 years! "We always talked of getting married and saying how your wedding date should be special so we chose 10/10/10.Our anniversary is in October, we would have been together for 10 years!"
The proposal: Phillip proposed in front of close family."We host football Sundays at our house every weekend and this particular weekend ALL of our immediate local family was there and at some point I went to the restroom and returned and everyone was complaining how something was wrong with the TV.I get in the living room and Phill is like 'babe what's wrong' with the TV ,so I look at it and shrug my shoulders. Then I see REC in the bottom corner and I was like Oh my goodness and then he comes on the screen, he had recorded his proposal! It was so creative and I had no idea. My first words were 'Nooooo, I told you to make sure my hair was done'! So after the video he asked for my answer and I'm like no you have to ask me again! So he gets on his knee and I say 'you can't ask me to marry you barefooted'. Amazingly he still wanted me as his bride and he asked again and I said YESSS!
The Wedding: They had their intimate wedding with 100 guests at the Regency at Dominion Valley near Washington D.C.! "They had beautiful landscaping for an outdoor ceremony. Cocktail hour was in lower level ballroom and reception in main ballroom on upper level. The set up allowed guests to have different scenery without driving from place to place."
