When you couples suggests that you visit a lighthouse for their engagement pictures…you absolutely say yes!  I met up with Amanda + Bryant in Havre De Grace for some gorgeous sunset pictures on the water.  It was such an awesome evening, perfect weather and plenty of time to get to chat with these two sweethearts!  Amanda and I are definitely two of a kind! Bryant is a bit of a quieter guy, but as we got to know each other better I got him to crack a few genuine smiles for the camera! I cannot wait to see these two walk down the aisle this fall!  Enjoy some favorites!

Oh my goodness do I have a session for you on this Friday afternoon.  I’m not sure I have the words for this session, but I’m going to try my best.  Where to even begin with Whitney + Jeremy? These two are so clearly in love and the biggest sweethearts! Whitney + Jeremy are planning a wedding that is extremely personal, including getting married at Whitney’s uncle’s gorgeous 1700’s plantation in the mountains!

When I arrived in Lexington for Whitney + Jeremy’s engagement session, the view quite literally took my breath away.  I may or may not have spent the entire evening squealing loudly over the light and the incredible scenery that is the Blue Ridge Mountains. We could not have asked for a more perfect evening, or a more perfect backdrop to photograph a couple in love.

Enjoy this peak at their dreamy sunset session!

Ahh! Happy June, friends!  This month is a pretty big one.  I’m just a few short weeks from taking the Love Sessions on the road, I have a couple of beautiful weddings with some fantastic couples before I leave, and SWP is celebrating a pretty exciting anniversary.  This month marks five years since I started this little business.  I can’t believe how fast it has flown by, and when I think back on all of the amazing couples I’ve had the privilege of working with and the beautiful love stories I’ve been able to tell, I feel just incredibly blessed.

And what better way to kick off this month than to share another one of my amazingly awesome couples!  I just loved every second of my time with Christina + Derek. We met up at Jefferson Patterson Park for their engagement session and basically had the whole park to ourselves!  It was incredibly peaceful and gave us a chance to talk and wander around the grounds creating some beautiful images.  These two have the sweetest personalities and I love the way they love on each other.  Derek had no shortage of sweet things to say to Christina and it made my heart melt! These two are still in a long distance relationship and you can tell they treasure every minute they get to spend in the same place.

I hope you enjoy just a few from their very romantic engagement session! A special shout out to the amazing Miranda Jarboe for Christina’s gorgeous makeup and an extra special thank you to Mr. Fuller of Floral Expressions. Christina’s parents are florists and her sweet dad made us a few fun and colorful pieces to play with! Can you even imagine how incredible the flowers will be for their wedding next year?!?

Gah!  I’m so excited to share this very American country engagement session today.  When I met up with Carli + Gene at Gene’s grandparents farm for their pictures, I had no idea how amazing the background for our evening was going to be!  I was in heaven! The best part of the day was that this location held such a special place for Carli + Gene.  Not only is it family land, but it was the place they had their very first date too!  It was so much fun walking through the fields, taking so gorgeous pictures and watching the way these two love each other.  I think it’s pretty clear they are a perfect match.  Enjoy some of my favorites!
