Located just south of Washington, D.C. is the National Harbor in Maryland, a engagement photography destination full of shops, dining, and entertainment located right on the waterfront of the Potomac River.
As you explore along the water, you’ll find many opportunities for picture-perfect moments, from peering out through binoculars on the dock and relaxing in the beach chairs, to gazing out over the river with the bridge’s striking architecture in the distance. The combination of the weathered wood of the dock as well as the deep blue of the water and sky will fill your photos with a natural, elegant beauty. Along the front, you’ll find many examples of modern architecture that bring a clean, fresh feel to the location, accompanied by classic backdrops like glass storefronts and red brick walls.
At sunset, you’ll enjoy a lovely display in the sky that reflects in the river as the waterfront lights up and sends streaks of color across the river. And you’ll especially love the Ferris wheel adding a touch of whimsy to the skyline. No matter the look you’re going for here, you’ll find plenty of backdrops for a creative shoot, making the National Harbor a fantastic spot for DC engagement photography.
