Christopher and Angela’s story began at midnight this past New Year’s Eve. They were attending a fabulous party at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in downtown Washington, DC to celebrate the new year. And it was at this moment when Christopher got down on one knee to ask Angela if she would spend the rest of her life with him. At the time it was just the two of them – an intimate moment captured in their memories forever.
But a couple months ago, Angela reached out asking if I could help them recreate the special moment so they could have the photos forever too. And of course, I said YES!! Not only are these two absolutely stunning together, I just loved how they wanted to document this part of their story. Now they’ll have two sweet memories: one from a winter’s night when she said yes to his proposal, and the other from their sunrise engagement session.
To honor the official moment, they dressed up in their elegant New Year’s Eve attire. Which of course, I thought was the perfect idea!! Don’t they look like they belong on the cover of a magazine? And I can’t forget to mention that Christopher custom designed the perfect black diamond engagement ring just for her – which looks beyond stunning!
In addition to the proposal photos, we also did some engagement photos outside the hotel. I’m telling you: their style was on point. Angela’s red skirt and heel combo added the perfect pop of color, along with Christopher’s shoes. And have you seen the way they look at each other? True love, without a doubt. Plus, they are so much fun to hang out with!! One of the many reasons I became a wedding photographer – I get to spend time with amazing couples!
