I’ve photographed proposals inside and outside at the Kennedy Center, but my favorite spot is the roof. You’ve got a panoramic view of the city and Rosslyn so you’ve got a choice of backgrounds! Washington Monument, Lincoln, the Watergate Hotel, or the shiny buildings of Rosslyn just across the river.

Management at the Kennedy Center is happy to have you propose there and we won’t even need a permit!

Here are some photos from another proposal at the Kennedy Center:

I’m Chris and I’m a Washington DC wedding photographer. My mission is to capture bold, modern, and distinctive photos for unconventional couples. I want to make you look epic, awesome, amazing, beautiful, and dapper – all the things you like and none of the things you don’t. Most importantly, I want to capture what makes you you.

If this sounds like you and your partner and you’d like me to document your Washington DC Proposal, please reach out to me below. I’d love to chat! You can also e-mail me at
