Winter engagement photo ideas??

My brother's a photographer, and he coming to visit for Christmas. He offered to do engagement photos for my fiance and I. I'm trying to get ideas of where to do the shoot, but all the examples I see online are from the summertime. Where is a good spot for a winter engement shoot in/around DC? Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

    We did ours in dupont circle and around the national mall. I have also heard that union station is pretty neat bc of the architecture. Georgetown would be nice. I dont know a whole lot, i have only lived here for 8 months. Good luck!!

    Botanical garden next to the Capitol.

    Take advantage of downtown DC if it snows! You could get some great photos

    What about the Arboretum?  Or ... the grounds of the National Cathedral?

    You can use the Basilica of the National Shrine, or Glen Echo in Md. is an amazing spot. We did ours at there. Hope this helps.

    You can go on the Key Bridge and take pictures with Georgetown Waterfront in the background.  And I agree with what was said above, take advantage if it snows!!

    I heard the Library of Congress has a glass room upstairs somewhere you can take pictures from, but I've never seen it with my own eyes.

    Maybe National Harbor too?

    The Sculpture Garden down on the mall is always a good bet. The fountain will probably be turned off, but it stays green all year long... also if you're quirky like me, my FI and I want to go to some of the museums and get some done with the dinosaurs and spaceships!

    Speaking of the Sculpture Garden, they turn the fountain into an ice skating rink in the winter. It should be up now, so that could make for a cute photo op.
