Every new couple that I get to meet brings me so much joy. I really am always so honored and overwhelmed that my precious clients have chosen me to photograph them. The joy that brings me never fades, no matter how long I do this. The people who hire me are the reason I get to do what I love and without them, I have no idea where I’d be. They mean the world to me. I hadn’t met Kaitlyn and Ryan before their engagement session in Maryland last week so besides our phone calls and emails, I really didn’t know what to expect but they were the warmest people! It always blows my mind that I can show up to an engagement session and meet a couple for the first time but feel like I’ve met them before. It’s so special.
I love when couples have a place in mind for their engagement session and I love it even more when I get to travel!! Kaitlyn and Ryan had me come up to Hollywood, Maryland, which is about three hours from Charlottesville. We met at this gorgeous plantation in the town where Kaitlyn grew up, right on the Patuxent River. We strolled around for a couple hours, hitting all the gorgeous nooks and crannies of this place and we had the most gorgeous evening light!
These two get married in July in the same area we took their engagement photos and I can’t wait to be back, celebrating their marriage! They’ve been dating for years and are so ready to be tying the knot surrounded by their friends! Until then, here are some of their engagement photos! Kaitlyn and Ryan, you guys are the sweetest!! I adored my time getting to know you and can’t wait to see you in the next few months! It’s going to fly by!
