I had an awesome time capturing Greg's surprise proposal to his girlfriend Kristi at The Washington Monument! I love capturing surprise proposals in Washington DC and being presented with new challenges! As a professional photographer it is my job to be able to correctly light and capture moments in any situation. Greg wanted to propose after sunset at the base of The Washington Monument where there is very little to no available light aside from the lights on the monument. Unlike when you are indoors and able to bounce flash from walls and ceilings photographing outdoors in open areas you would need a photographer with the experience to correctly light the subjects with off camera flash. I was able to capture this surprise proposal with the help of a lighting and my knowledge of off camera flash! Afterwards Greg, Kristi and I walked along The National Mall for some more awesome night portraits!
