Surprise Engagement [Washington, DC]

When one of your best friends is planning to propose to your other best friend and asks you to photograph it, you can’t say no! I was so thrilled to be a part of the engagement celebration for two of my dearest pals a couple weeks ago. The proposal took place at the Lincoln Memorial on a beautiful summer day. Unbeknownst to the soon-to-be bride-to-be, a few of our friends and fellow photographers were camped out behind the pillars, waiting to take some sneaky snapshots of the big event. While the proposal plans didn’t go quite as expected – we were spotted! – the photos turned out even better because I got to take some great close-up shots of the newly engaged couple. Here are a few photos from the day – in love with the pure happiness radiating from these two. Congrats Abbey and Henderson!
