When planning their wedding celebration, Madi knew that she wanted to remember her wedding weekend with a gorgeous modern portrait session at the classic Washington DC monuments. Although their wedding was planning for a Saturday, we opted to plan a private first look and wedding portrait session for Madi and Brady the day before, so that the couple could have plenty of time together (and plenty of stunning portraits!) before the hustle and bustle of their actual wedding day. We started off with the traditional first look at the Lincoln Monument, where we took a series of stunning sunrise portraits in a classically modern DC style. From there, we moved to the Jefferson Monument, where a little bit of surprise construction actually lead to some absolutely stunning modern light.
