For a few weeks this summer, the Lincoln Memorial was practically my second home! I’m so excited to share the second sweet round of Lincoln Memorial engagement photos with you on the blog this week! I got to meet Delia and Matt for their engagement session bright and early back in July, and while the morning was hot and sunny, these two were an absolute delight to have in front of my camera!
Delia and Matt are both fellow Penn Staters (We are!) and met while involved in the same THON organization. They met about eight years ago and started dating a few years later. They have been together ever since! Delia and Matt went to the Corner Room in State College on their very first date… this detail is important!
The day of their proposal, they were visiting campus on a bye weekend! They stopped by the Corner Room (AKA the location of their very first date!) for lunch, and then walked around campus for a while. They visited some of their favorite spots, and then right around sunset on Old Main lawn, Matt got down on one knee much to Delia’s surprise! They celebrated after Delia said YES just across the street at Allen Street Grill!
Matt loves Delia’s intelligence, strength and kindness. She knows exactly what she wants and is always there for him when he needs her support. She reminds him not to take life too seriously, always able to bring a smile to Matt’s face. Delia loves Matt’s drive and passion. He cares deeply for everything and everyone in his life and is the best support system for the people he loves. He knows how to pick Delia up when she is down with thoughtful comments or gestures that show how much he understands her.
Lincoln Memorial engagement photos can be a little bit of an Olympic sport. You can expect lots of walking and a little bit of creativity when sourcing the best angles, but ultimately its worth it every dang time!
Somehow, Matt made it through their entire session with a literal broken foot and never complained once! (An absolute champ!) We took his boot on and off, replacing it to walk from spot to spot between photos. If you’ve ever been on the National Mall, you know that sessions there involve a lot of walking! Even with the DC summer heat, about 99% humidity, a broken foot, and a good 2000+ steps, these two didn’t stop smiling! We visited some of the most iconic spots on the National Mall, and I couldn’t be more grateful that that Delia and Matt were such a joy to work with
I can’t wait for you to catch a preview into our beautiful morning together!
These two are the absolute sweetest!
One of my faves!
Delia… you are GLOWING!
