Pratik and Ronak- Lincoln Memorial, Washington, D.C Surprise Proposal

Last Friday morning, was not the warmest of mornings at all, but you could find me hanging out in front of the Lincoln Memorial in DC. I was there to photograph waiting to spot Pratik and his girlfriend, Ronak. They had flown in from Texas the evening before and were spending Valentine's Day/President's Day weekend in DC. Pratik wanted to kick it off by proposing to Ronak, and he did just that, AND she said YES! 

Here are a some of my favorites from the surprise proposal:

Alex and Jaimie- DC Engagement Shoot

Now everybody knows, I am in no way a morning person. I am the hardest person to wake up especially when the sun hasn't come up yet. But photography is something I'll get out of bed for. Heather asked me to come along on an engagement shoot over at the Tidal Basin in DC. We got there around 6:15 and were immediately shocked at how many photographers there were just in the parking lot. Jamie and Alex (one of the cutest couples ever) showed up shortly after, and we started walking toward the monuments and cherry blossoms. We were met with this:

Photographers were EVERYWHERE. I don't think that there was a single angle of the cherry blossoms that wasn't being covered by a photographer. We eventually found an open spot to take some photos just as the sun was about to rise. Jamie and Alex were amazing even though it was absolutely freezing out.undefinedundefined

After a quick wardrobe change, we headed out to the monuments. undefinedundefined

Kudos go to Jamie and Alex for being so amazing while walking all over the place, and staying so damn cute through the freezing temperatures.
