December 16, 2015: proposal in Georgetown
Devoe emailed me that he was planning to propose to his girlfriend Candace in Georgetown. I suggested a pathway along the canal for some nice background separation. I took a few quick photos as they approached (in between shots of random stuff so I wouldn't be too suspicious).
Before he knelt, Devoe deftly positioned Candace so I had a clear view of her reaction.
Candace was so entranced by her engagement ring that she barely noticed me taking more photos as they walked my way. :-)
After Devoe and I revealed to Candace that I photographed the proposal, I took some macro photos of the ring. It's quite a looker.
We took a bunch of photos at various points along the canal. Here are some of my favorites. I'm definitely going to use the wall of green vines and the red door in future portrait sessions.
As the sun set over Arlington, VA, we snapped a few more at the waterfront park. (Shout out to the Key Bridge.)
Congratulations, Devoe and Candace!
