Engagement Session in McCrillis Gardens, Bethesda, Maryland

November 25, 2023

Daniela Zapata Photography
Welcome! I hope this blog serves you as a resource for planning your future session with me, or for getting a better feel for my photography style. Enjoy!


Austin & Becca are two special souls. Their love story started in Colorado (where their wedding will be!), and it flourished in the DMV. I am grateful to have photographed Austin’s surprise proposal a few weeks prior to this session too!

McCrillis Garden is one of my favorite quiet locations near D.C. It feels like you’re in a peaceful magic garden, and there is so much beautiful nature to enjoy.

For this session, Becca & Austin changed between three outfits. This was easy because I always bring a changing tent with me to sessions!

I encourage outfit changes for these sessions so you have an opportunity to see yourself in various looks in your final gallery. It’s surprising how much an outfit influences your final photos!

Congratulations and mazel tov to the happy couple! I can’t wait to see how you continue to grow together in the years to come. If you are interested in a peaceful stroll through a garden for your session, reach out.

    We had the best experience with Dani as our photographer! She is incredibly professional and on top of things. She coached us through the whole session and made us feel comfortable and confident. After the shoot, she got our photos back quickly and they looked amazing! You would be so lucky to work with her.
