The weather has been wreaking havoc on my shooting schedule recently, but after a few rainouts, I FINALLY got to meet Kylie and Brandon in Solomons for their engagement session!

Jessica’s mom and I have known each other for years through work, and so I was thrilled when they contacted me about wedding and engagement portraits! Jess and her fianc√©, Dayne, met at their alma mater, St. Mary’s College of Maryland. They both work at SMCM now and anyone from southern Maryland knows how gorgeous the campus is, so it was a no-brainer that we’d meet there for their engagement session!

As a sweet bonus, the end result is beautiful portraits that aren’t in wedding day attire, and that ultimately may feel more natural and true to you.

Sometimes within just the space of an hour, you can go from formal introductory handshakes to big hugs goodbye, with smiles and stories fueling the soul for days to come afterward. That’s exactly what happened the day I met Lindsay and Michael (aka Zook) […]
