A Secret Engagement to Remember!
Last fall, we had the pleasure of photographing a secret engagement for Mario & Allegra.
Eddie and I have done secret engagements before, but when we met Mario in the fall of 2016, it was immediately evident that he was completely and totally devoted to his then girlfriend, Allegra. He brought his mom along and we quickly discovered that she was just as smitten with Allegra.
Their relationship started after many years of friendship. Mario was very patient in waiting to propose so that she could focus on grad school. When he decided to do it, we had the privilege to see their unapologetic love in full display.
We went to a serene Japanese Garden at the Hillwood Estates.
Allegra was completely surprised and in awe at her soon to be fiancé’s actions. Lance got down on one knee and Allegra immediately put her hands on her face in shock. Their love thick in the air as she said “yes” with sheer joy and eagerness in her voice.
As we took them around their favorite locations in the Washington D.C. area after the proposal, like Ben’s Next Door, the first place they met, Eddie and I were sure that these memories would last forever.
Take a peek at their story below!
