July 15, 2015: marriage proposal at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC
Brandon contacted me a few weeks ago about photographing his marriage proposal to Amy on July 12. He built up to "the question" with an afternoon on the National Mall in Washington, DC. I had a lot of fun following them (secretly, of course) as they visited some of their favorite sites.
After viewing the interior of the Lincoln Memorial, Brandon and Amy came down the front steps. Amy was eager to leave for a winery tour, but her plans were interrupted when Brandon launched into his speech, pulled out a small box, and knelt in front of her. The nearby crowd started clapping and cheering as they realized what was happening!
Some of Brandon's and Amy's relatives watched the proposal from a distance and celebrated with the couple afterward. Also, Brandon swapped contact information with an onlooker who happened to capture the proposal on video. Props to that guy!
Congratulations, Brandon and Amy!
