DC Surprise Proposal Photography: Karah and Allison

This incredible Washington DC same-sex surprise proposal had us tearing up! DC couple Karah and Allison had no idea that they were both simultaneously planning a surprise marriage proposal.  

The Marriage Proposal

After a romantic stroll through the gardens at Mount Vernon, Karah, Allison, and their chocolate lab reached a peaceful gazebo overlooking the Potomac River.  Sarah casually told her to check their pup’s collar, where Allison found a sweet proposal note.

She joyfully accepted and with tears of happiness in her eyes, she pulled a sparkling engagement ring from her own pocket, and proposed right back!

Our sneaky snapper caught the moment they realized they both had unknowingly planned a surprise proposal for the very same day! 

After the couple shared a happy, tearful embrace, Karah revealed that she had planned to have it all captured with hidden proposal photography, and our paparazzi proposal photographer joined them for a gorgeous engagement session.

But let’s rewind.  How did Karah plan and pull off her dream engagement?

The Surprise Proposal Plan

Karah reached out to us to help her put together a picture perfect secret engagement for her marriage proposal to Allison.  She wanted to make sure it was all captured with beautiful surprise engagement photos, and that their pup was able to help her pop the question.  After running through a few ideas with our proposal experts, she decided Mount Vernon was the perfect place to propose.  Allison and Karah frequently take day trips to the park to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, and they shared many happy memories here. Its outdoor gardens were dog-friendly and picture perfect for proposal photography and post-engagement couples portraits!  

DC Proposal Photography Package

Our proposal expert worked with Karah to determine which DC surprise proposal photography package was the best fit.  Karah wanted to capture their full proposal story and have some extra time to pose against the picturesque backdrop of the Mount Vernon Museum and Gardens, so we recommended opting for the proposal photography package with a post-proposal portrait session.  Check out all the beautiful photos in Karah and Allison’s full proposal slideshow!
