We all know the Lincoln Memorial is fabulous, but I have to say, the areas surrounding the memorial are quickly becoming one of my absolute favorite places to shoot this fall! And that’s why I’m excited to share Katie and Mike’s autumn Lincoln Memorial engagement photos with you!
Katie and Mike have such a wonderful story! First of all, they met at a wedding! If that doesn’t have you be destined to spend your lives together, I don’t know what does! The couple went to University of Alabama together, and didn’t know each other until after college when they met at the wedding. Ahhh, fate!
Will You… Scavenger Hunt?
The story just gets cuter from there! Mike planned a really fun, special proposal for Katie when it was time for him to pop the question. The day started with Mike leaving a note that lead to Katie calling her best friend in Alabama, which triggered a series of other clues and surprises – a full day scavenger hunt! The hunt ended with the final clue where Katie found Mike waiting at the D.C. War Memorial, ring in hand. After she said yes, they enjoyed some quiet time together before the final surprise of their friends and family joining them for a cocktail party to end the day. I wonder how many brownie points Mike got for such a wonderful proposal?!
You can see why we had to work in the D.C. War Memorial to Katie and Mike’s autumn Lincoln Memorial engagement photos sesh! I mean, besides it being one of my fav places to take photos, it has a special meaning to these two love birds <3
Kate Middleton, anyone?
These two are seriously the cutest and their British royals inspired attire fit perfectly into the setting for their autumn Lincoln Memorial engagement photos. They got the perfect glowy morning on the mall and I’m so excited for how their photos turned out!
