The Lincoln Memorial is the perfect spot for a DC surprise proposal with an amazing view of The Washington Memorial in between the columns of the The Lincoln. I captured this picture perfect proposal in the middle of Cherry Blossom season where we got super lucky with out tourist walking into this amazing shot! After the proposal we walked over to The FDR Memorial and Tidal Basin for some Cherry Blossom photos as they were in peak bloom. The Cherry Blossom Festival is a spring celebration honoring the gift of the Japanese Cherry Trees to The US from Japan in 1912. The trees celebrated the friendship between the US and Japan. This is a super busy time of year for photographers as many couples schedule engagement sessions and photography sessions at the blossoms!
Thank you for this amazing testimonial!
"Jon was excellent. Although I wasn't the one planning the proposal (I'm the bride :) ), I cannot get over how amazing the photos were that Jon took. My friends didn't believe me when I showed them the proposal picture and told them that it was taken in the real moment - they thought it was recreated afterwards! Jon was so natural to be around and you can really tell how much he loves taking photos, finding the right angle, etc. My favorite part was how quick he was to send a few photos after the proposal - I was excited to use his beautiful photo to announce my engagement and I was so happy I didn't have to wait long!"
