Jess and Max grew up thousands of miles away from one another. Who knew other than fate that these two would end up attending the same high school, meeting and falling in love. After dating for five years, living in different states and still managing to grow a stronger relationship, Max decided to take it to the next level.

Max reached out to me in hopes of photographing the proposal he was planning to Jess on her first trip to DC EVER! Little did I know, this was going to be one of the most spectacular surprise proposals I had the honor of capturing.

Max wrote pages of sweet words declaring his love to Jess. As I watched from afar, Jess was giggling and overwhelmed with happiness. Bump, bump, bump. My heart was racing. When was he going to get down on one knee? I couldn’t even imagine how anxious Max was feeling.

After popping the question and Jess realizing her special moment had been captured, we chatted for a few minutes then led them off to enjoy their night.

We met the next afternoon in DC to do an engagement session at the Lincoln Memorial! Jess and Max spent the morning site seeing across DC and I have to say, Max made Jess’ first trip to DC an extremely memorable one.

Congratulations Jess + Max! I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you two.
