Why propose at Tidal Basin?
Are you planning to pop the question in the nation's capital, Washington DC? Look no further than the Tidal Basin. As a DC proposal photographer, I think it is a great choice for a DC proposal because of the view of the Jefferson Memorial and Washington Monument. The serene waterfront also offers a peaceful and romantic atmosphere outside of cherry blossom season.
While Tidal Basin is a tourist attraction, it also offers plenty of open spaces for those seeking a more quiet and intimate proposal. Try areas with trees or off the main path for pockets of privacy. After the proposal, couples can walk and talk about the future while taking in the quintessential DC view.
A SUMMER SURPRISE PROPOSAL SUCCESS STORY TO INSPIRE YOU
On a gorgeous summer day, one lucky couple arrived at the Tidal Basin for a surprise proposal. The gentleman had planned a romantic picnic and a walk by the water with his significant other, enjoying the stunning views of the Jefferson Memorial. Weeks before, he reached out to Stefan A. Photography and consulted us on location and the details.
As they approached the water's edge, the gentleman suggested they take a closer look at the fish swimming in the basin. While the girl was gazing at the fish, the gentleman suddenly dropped to one knee, revealing a beautiful engagement ring, and asked her to be his partner for life.
Meanwhile, our team was working behind the scenes to ensure the moment was perfect. While Stefan was stealthily photographing the proposal, Diana held up a sign on the side of the path, discreetly diverting traffic away from the area, ensuring a private and intimate proposal.
Overwhelmed with emotion, the young lady said yes and couldn't contain her excitement. The team continued to capture the moment with stunning engagement photos amongst the lush green trees.
The happy newly engaged couple left the Tidal Basin, with unforgettable memories of a beautiful summer day surprise proposal, and the beginning of their journey together.
