Modern & exceptional wedding photography.

Michelle Whitley captured this Washington National Cathedral and Bishop’s Garden engagement session in April 2022. Michelle is a Washington DC engagement and wedding photographer available for weddings and sessions throughout the district, Maryland, Virginia, and beyond.

Yasmeen reached out to me about a Bishop’s Garden engagement session a few weeks before we captured it. She and Robby were planning a summer wedding, so capturing a spring engagement session was top priority. We aligned our schedules in late April and were able to capture a beautiful Washington DC engagement session. Enjoy my favorite photos from their session!

We started the session in DC’s classic Bishop’s Garden at the Cathedral. This little spot is a hidden gem in the district and creates seriously magical images. I love the photos we captured in the tulip garden before small sprinkles of rain fell towards the end of our session. Something to note: The cathedral allows portrait sessions without a permit. Wedding photos at either location require a permit via their event policy. Contact WN Cathedral directly for more information.

If you enjoyed this garden engagement session, I think you’ll love Elizabeth’s Moongate Garden bridal portraits here!
