Tiffany & Alonzo | Washington, DC Engagement Photographer

Happy Monday!

I’m soo happy to share this post with you guys today because it is about a couple I love dearly.

A few months ago Alonzo proposed to Tiffany and it was the sweetest thing! Since Tiffany helped design her ring, she knew it was coming, so when the proposal was happening had to be the surprise. Alonzo did a great job with orchestrating it all!

The week leading up to her proposal, he gave her a charm to add to a charm bracelet. Each one was representative of a significant aspect of their relationship, how they met, or her personality. And each time he gave her a new charm, she was expecting a ring, but of course she didn’t get it lol. So he was keeping her in suspense but also wearing her down at the same time (smart thinking ;)

Friday rolls around and he’s planned for the family to be at a family member’s house to do the actual proposal. Everyone parks down the street (including him) because Tiffany thinks she’s just dropping by to do something with her mom. They are waiting inside and as she’s walking up to the house, he comes out to meet her with her last charm :)

Here’s what happens next (i was hiding behind a tree lol)


How sweet are these two! Tiffany just knew she wasn’t going to be surprised when the proposal happened since she knew it was coming, so I’m glad it ended up being a genuine surprise.

A week later we got together for their engagement session! These two are true troopers. We’d already planned their session for this weekend and it would just so happen that it was the COLDEST day ever!! It really felt like the dead of winter this Saturday, but they endured for the sake of art :)

Tiffany’s new last name will be Mack ;)


So now the wedding planning is in full swing and I’ll be pulling double-duty as one of her bridesmaids and the photographer! My brother and our assistant will be taking the majority of the photos while I’ll be taking the prep photos and portraits if you’re wondering how that will work lol.

Looking forward to their big day! Just three months to go :)
