A few months ago I got email from Taylor. He was planning the perfect evening to celebrate his shared birthday with his girlfriend. It would include dinner, a stroll along the mall in DC, and he even planned for them to find the perfect spot to take a photo together at the Lincoln Memorial.
… little did Erika know, at that special location there would be also be something else waiting for her. A question of “will you marry me!?”
I had the utmost honor and privilege of capturing Taylor and Erika’s Lincoln Memorial proposal and let me just say — these two are SO fun. Watching Erika’s reaction was incredible because she was legitimately surprised and overjoyed!! I was instantly transported back to how I felt when Morgan asked me to marry him. *cue the sappiness here*
You know how sometimes you wonder if someone was surprised or just kind of surprised? Well Erika was surprised and I am so impressed that Taylor pulled it all off! When Taylor got down on one knee (like a perfect gentleman) all she could do was respond with an ecstatic “yes!!”.
Getting to celebrate such a fun evening with these two was incredible. Plus, portraits right after you’re engaged? I mean talk about an easy time capturing the joy! Remind me to do this more often ;)
Taylor and Erika — I am so thrilled for y’all! Thank you for inviting me into such a special moment for the two of you.
Enjoy a peek at some of my favorites from their Lincoln Memorial Engagement session. In case it hasn’t been said enough around her, I love proposals, haha!!
Happy Monday, friends!
