Surprise Proposal at the Library of Congress | Washington, DC | Nav and Praneet

Nav’s surprise proposal to Praneet at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC was one of my favorite proposals ever! These two live on opposite ends of the country - she’s in Northern Virginia and he’s in Seattle. Since they don’t get to see each other very often, Nav wanted to make this trip to DC extra special! Although he’s not super familiar with the city, he knew that Praneet’s favorite building was the Library of Congress, so that’s where he wanted to propose.

Nav coaxed Praneet into the right spot by pretending he was trying to get the perfect selfie, centered in front of the stairs. And we somehow lucked out to have a completely empty staircase, which is not normal for mid-day at the Library of Congress!

Still no tourists on the stairs - even while we continued taking photos!

I am in love with their outfits; they seriously look like they walked out of a fashion magazine. Nav told Praneet they were going out to a fancy brunch, so that’s how he got her all dressed up for the occasion!


After the Library of Congress, we went across the street for a few photos by the U.S. Capitol Building.

Gotta show off that engagement ring!

Our last stop was at the Supreme Court, again getting lucky to have the place to ourselves!

Praneet’s laugh in this one is just adorable ❤️️❤️️❤️️


So excited for these two on their next adventure!
