Katie and Connor’s beautiful engagement session at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. was nothing short of magical. Surrounded by the towering spires and intricate architecture of the church, the couple chose to capture their love in the Bishop’s Garden, a place that held a special place in Katie’s heart. As a child, she spent countless afternoons playing in the garden with her family after Sunday mass, and now, as a bride-to-be, she returned with her fiancĂ©.

Maisie, the couple’s sweet puppy, was the star of the photography session, and it was easy to see why. Dressed in a gorgeous flower collar, she looked like she belonged in the garden, surrounded by the vibrant colors and fragrant blooms. She was on her best behavior throughout the shoot, her tail wagging happily as she posed for the camera.

As Katie and Connor explored the Bishop’s Garden, they were surrounded by the beauty of the blooming roses and other flowers. The colors were so vibrant that they seemed to come alive, creating a picturesque backdrop for the couple’s engagement photos.

Walking hand in hand, Katie and Connor savored the moment, taking in the sights and sounds of the gardens and the memories they were creating. I can see why Katie has such fond memories of this place and why she would want to return to have their engagement photos at such a beautiful and sentimental location. The National Cathedral and Bishop’s Gardens are now one of my favorite engagment session locations in Washington D.C. Nothing can compare to the beautiful and tranquil setting this backdrop offers.
