I thought this post was going to be a “venue spotlight” post where I could talk about having your wedding at the U.S. Botanic Garden. Nope, the not-very-helpful-but-pleasant-enough info desk guy said. It’s federal land and so you can’t rent it out… I was unclear on the details, but there was a very useful sign saying “no weddings ever.” So you won’t be getting married at the U.S. Botanic Garden.
But you could do your engagement photos there. In fact, this nifty greenhouse has a ton of secret little spots for getting your picture on. I think it would make a lovely setting, and of course you would have the Capitol and Washington Monument as backdrops as soon as you step outside. Plus, there are lots of great plants.
I decided to use a slight silver effect for these black and white images. I’m not really sure why, but I thought it looked good and so went with it for all the monotones.
