A few weeks ago I photographed Ros & Rob’s engagement photos in Georgetown and near Union Station in Washington, DC. Ive known these two both separately for a few years now… and had no idea they were dating until well into their relationship. I did, in fact, once even try to set Ros up with another friend of mine- RIGHT IN FRONT OF ROB! Oops! That’s what you get for keeping secrets!! I love these two and consider them both to be close friends and am honored they asked me to photograph their wedding. When they finally got engaged, Ros simply sent out a text message with a picture of the ring. I knew it was coming- never told her that, of course- but Rob told me a few weeks ahead of time, and even the day of, just hours before. I couldn’t be happier for them!
Thanks to Moshe Zusman for his outstanding light-holding technique and assistance- he’s overqualified for the position, but was great fun to work with!
Ive known Jen and her mutt Allie Mae for a few years now. A while back, Jen started to get into running, joining a running club and everything. She’d tell me all about these long runs she’d go on at ridiculous times of day (like . . . in the morning. ugh.) and I’d hear about all the new friends she was making. She even started traveling a bit for races and marathons all up and down the east coast. The one day she mentioned a guy she met through some of these new friends. We both sort of got busy with our lives and suddenly she’s telling me they were engaged. And I couldn’t be happier for her!
They met through some friends at a party and their relationship grew until they were running multi-day overnight races together. Now THAT’S true love! Jason’s surprise proposal came on New Year’s Eve. Jen’s response? A thousand times yes!
When it came time for their engagement session, Jen made just one request: do whatever I want. So, I took the opportunity to do some video work, as well as still photography. This blog post is just some still photos from the shoot, video will follow once I get to editing it all.
We started out at the home they just bought and are renovating. Did some video work there in the backyard. Despite Allie Mae’s best efforts to eat my camera, we prevailed. Then we headed into the District, to the Yards Park near the Navy Yards.
All in all, it was one of my favorite engagement sessions this year. Special thanks to Becca from Rebecca Watkins Photography for her assistance during the shoot! Best of luck to my friends Jen & Jason, I wish them all the happiness in the world.
Recently, I got to photograph Margie & Thomas’ engagement session in Old Town Alexandria. It was a cold day and the wind coming of the river was strong- but they were tough and hung in there until we managed to get out of the wind! We wandered through some parks and along the waterfront, then into town and up and down some alleys. Here’s just a quick peak at some of what we shot. I cant wait for their May wedding at Musket Ridge Golf Club!
Congratulations to Margie & Thomas! And super big thanks to Terra Dawn Photography for her help.
I recently photographed Nick & Lili’s engagement session in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor area. We started out at Ft McHenry and I got yelled at by the park rangers. Twice. That’s a new record for me, normally I only get yelled at once during a photo shoot! But we pressed on, the scofflaws that we are, and continued to make some great photos of this couple. This tree with all it’s autumn color couldn’t be passed up! This was right after I got yelled at for not having a permit. Oops. Play dumb, it usually works.
Next we found this great little hill with some tall grasses, set against the amazing late afternoon sky. Got yelled at here too, apparently you cant walk on the grass, or something.
Headed over to a little plaza near the water later, and found an outdoor turf field painted like a giant Maryland flag. Didn’t even know that was there until today!
The dramatic sunset sky we had couldn’t be ignored, either. A detective and a lawyer, they make a great combination, almost too sitcom for words, really. We found this near the Museum of Industry, ending with this wide open view of the sly.
We finished our time together atop Federal Hill, overlooking the harbor and the Baltimore skyline. I cant wait for their wedding in May!
