Rainy Surprise Proposal ı Washington, DC
Surprise Proposal at the Tidal Basin
It's been a VERY rainy summer. It was the wettest June in record, in fact. If you grew up in this general area, you probably remember having water restrictions almost every summer. We were only allowed to wash cars on certain days of the week, neighbors were asked to report anyone who was watering their lawns outside of the designated days... So, it hasn't really felt like summer yet. Is anyone else shocked that it's already JULY?! How did that happen?!
We weren't surprised when it started raining just before this surprise proposal, but we were kind of disappointed. We'd been hoping all day that the forecasters were incorrect and that we'd have a beautiful sunset. We weren't that lucky, though. We were lucky enough to be part of this super sweet surprise proposal - and, of course, she said yes!
Since these two lovebirds met at Georgetown University, it worked out well that they were carrying the umbrella with their alma mater's insignia. We did get a slight break in the rain just before we finished shooting, which was nice.
We know these two have a lifetime of happiness ahead of them and we couldn't have been happier to be a tiny part of this huge moment! Congratulations!

Over the years, we've learned a lot from capturing - and being a part of - all types of special moments, especially weddings. One thing that has really stuck with us: it's not only important that you love our images - you must also love your photographer. You will spend more time with us on your wedding day than anyone else. So, it's important that you enjoy being around us on your big day!
