Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, MD! It’s free, plenty of parking, and beautiful.

chatnoir :  Dumbarton Oaks in Georgetown has incredible gardens (but is not free, may need to ask if you can do the photography there). Spring is a beautiful time for their flowers. Same with Meriweather-Post estate (Hillwood I think it’s called? Something like that) in Observatory Circle area in DC. DC also has the national arboretum, though fewer flowers vs. greenery.


DC bee here! IDK why the text is so big…

chatnoir :  It’s a bit of a drive, but you could try Lewis Ginter botanical garden in Richmond. Their website says flowers begin blooming in March.

PPs had great ideas — I’d also suggest asking your photographer for interesting places they’ve shot that match your vision.  It seems like they always know the greatest hidden corners of the city!

FWIW – we did our wedding photos at Meridian Hill Park – it’s definitely more of a garden but less floral feeling, but such a cool place too.
