DC War Memorial surprise proposal | Washington DC wedding photography

What’s sweeter than a surprise marriage proposal? A surprise marriage proposal during a craftily-planned family trip to Washington, DC… so that your family and friends are at hand to celebrate with you after “yes”! When Brett reached out to me this spring to say he’d be taking a trip with his love, Kendra, and their family to DC, and he wanted to propose, and could I help… what is there to say but “yes”?! We decided Brett would take a walk with Kendra, away from the fam, for some quality couple’s time, and that I’d be waiting, looking innocuously like another tourist (I hope) nearby (with my SUUUUPER telephoto borrowed 100-400mm lens!), and that we’d pull the whole thing off without meeting beforehand or touching base first in person the day-of. And… of course… it worked! And Kendra said yes! And their adorable son and entire family were naturally waiting just beyond the treeline, so that they could come and share in the celebration, and get some family photos… all before naptime for the little one. Much happiness to you, Brett and Kendra!
