Surprise Proposal at the Reflecting Pool | Washington, DC | Trent and Fowler
I love how surprised and excited Fowler was with this proposal! Trent and Fowler live down in Atlanta, and Trent decided that their weekend getaway to DC would be the perfect time to propose. He had contacted me a few weeks prior with his plan, and we finalized all the details to capture the big moment. They flew in Thursday night, and he told Fowler that he had scheduled a walking tour of the monuments on Friday morning. Trent said they would be meeting with their “tour group” by the Lincoln Memorial and Reflecting Pool, and he even saved my number in his phone as “Megan tour guide” - genius! So just in case Fowler happened to notice any of our phone calls or text messages, she would still have no idea.
On a chilly winter morning, there weren’t many tourists around the monuments which was so perfect! As I pretended to take photos of the Washington Monument, Trent began to guide Fowler down the steps towards the Reflecting Pool. She actually tried to stop him from getting in my way - “there’s a photographer there, we don’t want to get in her shot” haha! Trent knew he was going to catch her COMPLETELY by surprise!
When I asked Fowler and Trent to walk while holding hands, they told me that they actually hold pinkies! So cute.
Love their smiles in this one!
