April 27, 2016: proposal at the Tidal Basin

I shot another proposal last week!  Hugh and Joan met through one of Joan's coworkers a few years ago.  Hugh picked a great spot near the Tidal Basin to ask Joan to marry him.  They set up a picnic then checked out the nearby "floral library".

Finally, Hugh led Joan to the clearing he selected.  I camped out near a tree and prepped my 100mm telephoto lens.  Joan seemed rather surprised when Hugh knelt in front of her!  I was able to sneak a few different angles of them celebrating before Hugh pointed me out to Joan.

We ended the session with some posed shots and a couple shots prominently featuring the beautiful ring.

Congratulations, Hugh and Joan!
