Grab something yummy and settle in, because I’ve got a treat for you this evening! I met Rebecca and Anthony for their engagement session on Friday evening, and these two totally rocked it. This was my first time meeting Anthony, and right away the two of them reminded me of myself and my husband, Adam! Rebecca is bubbly and outgoing, while Anthony is more softspoken. They’re a perfect pair!

Kara and I found each other on social media, and as soon as she hopped out of Joey’s truck on the evening of their engagement session, I knew she was my kind of girl! Kara and Joey are super laid back, love on each other constantly, and were just instantly wonderful to be around.

They say that if you don’t like the weather in Maryland just wait ten minutes, and that’s exactly how Kelsey and Travis’s engagement session went. We met at the historic London Town & Garden on a beautiful Wednesday afternoon. Then it began to rain, but the sun was still shining. Then, the skies opened and […]

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.
