A Lincoln Memorial Engagement: Meghan & Kris


September 21, 2017


A Lincoln Memorial Engagement Session

Earlier this week I spent a gorgeous morning at the Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument with Meghan and Kris.  First of all, they showed up to their engagement session looking so stylish!! Just look at that classic white dress and blazer. So perfect for such an iconic backdrop! And have you seen Meghan’s engagement ring? One of my all-time favorites to photograph!

Not only did they look amazing, they were also so sweet the entire session. It’s easy to see why these two are perfect for each other! I barely even had to prompt them because they were too busy laughing, smiling at each other and looking generally picture-perfect the entire time. It was so fun!! Plus, we had a blast talking about our favorite IU spots!

Their Story

You see, Meghan and Kris met during their sophomore year at IU (yay for fellow Hoosiers!) After graduation, they moved to DC, where they’ve been living for the past three years. So when they got engaged, they decided to document this part of their story in the city they call home. And what better place than the monuments? It’s always a beautiful spot for photos!

My favorite part is they will actually be getting married back at Indiana University next summer. It is so sweet their story will come full circle. In the same place they met, they’ll promise the rest of their lives to each other. It doesn’t get any more romantic than that! Congratulations, you two!! Enjoy some of my favorites below.
