Elizabeth and Timothy met me in Rehoboth Beach on a beautiful summer day to talk a bit about their wedding that’s coming up at Salero later this year, and of course – so I could photograph their engagement session! The light was perfect… all of the way from the golden hour right through to blue hour. In a relative small area around the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk we were able to get a wide variety of photos.
Like a lot of couples, Elizabeth and Timothy were worried they wouldn’t know what to do when it came time to be photographed…. of course they were perfect, so cute together and had absolutely nothing to worry about. :)
Elizabeth & Timothy: Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk Engagement Session
Sandy and Brandon wanted me to take their Delaware engagement photos around their home. I loved the idea of photographing an engagement session that was truly unique to them and not just some pretty location we chose as a backdrop. This place has true meaning to them. I photographed their engagement session around their house in Smyrna on their family’s farmland surrounding their home. There have been some crazy days in the Northeast this winter, but we were fortunate to have scheduled this session for a beautiful (and warm-ish) winter day. Thankfully, the pretty white snow was still covering the ground. This is actually the first time I’ve ever done an engagement session in the snow! It did get a little chilly as the sun started to set, so we took the last few photos of the day with the sun falling below the horizon creating a breathtaking watercolor-like sky. Sandy and Brandon are very lucky to have their home surrounded with such a fantastic view of these kind of Delaware sunsets. :)
As you can tell, Sandy and Brandon are big time animal lovers – me too!!! (I think my dog, Violet, charmed Sandy when we first met and I credit her for at least part of the final decision of them deciding to hire me! ;)) We made sure to include Sandy and Brandon’s dog and cats in some of the photos, but I have to admit…. there was also a lot of curious animal photo-bombing going on that none of us had any control over (I kinda loved it.) :p
I’m looking forward their summer wedding which will be held at the Winery at Elk Manor in North East, Maryland.
Leslie and David chose Longwood Gardens for their engagement session – as I have mentioned here many times before, it is definitely one of the most beautiful places in the Brandywine Valley for a portrait session. No matter the weather – it’s always beautiful inside the Longwood Gardens conservatory.
I find engagement sessions to be so important, because it helps my clients experience a little bit of my photography style in a first hand experience in front of the camera. I also love that they can see just how beautiful they are in the resulting photographs, which leads to more confidence and being more relaxed on the most important day – their wedding!
Leslie and David were both a little nervous about getting their photos taken, but as you can see below – the nervousness was for naught. We had a fun time and they were such a naturally cute couple in front of the camera!! :)
