I am relatively new to the DC area, but I have a couple who wants to take their engagement photos in Georgetown. Has anyone taken any engagement photos there that they could share? Are there any good locations that you would recommend? I am a bit nervous about taking shots in an area that I am not familiar with...so any suggestions would be much appreciated! :D

I don't live there anymore, but what about the very end of Georgetown toward the water?

I would look to accent the photos with the landscape that make DC so special. There are a few circles on the way to GT that are gorgeous and fun.

Rock Creek Park maybe?

Tons of stuff to choose from.

What's the train station there? There are portions of it that are beautiful.

Just some ideas..

Thanks for the ideas! You'll never believe this, but I just had a second couple tell me that they want to do their pics in Georgetown too! I guess I better get over there next week and scout out some spots. I'm definitely going to go down by the water because one couple mentioned that area.

If anyone else has pics or ideas...please share! I never go to Georgetown because it seems so busy. I tend to avoid crowds and traffic if at all possible. :)

I have to admit that I have no idea what you are talking about because that's how little I know about Georgetown...but I am sure going to look into those suggestions! Thanks!!

Nobody has any pics to share?
