When Nick called to ask if I’d photograph his proposal to Melissa, I was game to be in on his plan! And Melissa’s reaction didn’t disappoint! It’s such a quick moment and having a series of pictures will make sure they never forget what they were feeling at the time. All the older couples in the room (to the right and left in the image below) wanted to see the ring, of course! After we left the restaurant, we went down to the Georgetown waterfront for a few pictures of the newly engaged and happy couple.
