When a couple makes the conscious decision to take their relationship to the next level, the question of love, faith and trust comes to the surface. To ask for someone’s hand in marriage may quite frankly be one of the most important questions a man or woman will ask in their lifetime. With a simple response of “I accept" or "yes” the duo steps into the next phase of their union, the engagement era. And what better way to present this engagement to the world than with photographs. To celebrate this landmark occasion in their lives together, Lindsey and Adam spent a day in District of Columbia’s National Mall, surrounded by the historical monuments of America’s fore fathers, the two frolicked, smooched and just simply spent time together. And you can beat your top dollar: Eleven Hearts was there to capture every moment.
With her signature style, Goknur Olguner shot some of the session using a 70-200 mm Tele Zoom lens. To document moments of this sublime day, Goknur likes to use the lens to highlight panoramic views of places such as the Lincoln Memorial.
The National Mall was a perfect choice for the photo shoot because it symbolizes not only National pride but North American as a whole. Being that Lindsey is Canadian and Adam is from the States, the mall represents American unity at its finest.
