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!
