I have to admit, this is one of my favorite engagement sessions (though they really are ALL my favorites). I am a little biased towards engagement sessions because they really are so much fun to photograph. I love photographing the love, the playfulness and the passion between two people. It is also a great way for me to get to know a couple before their big day. I feel like it is a trial run for us. They get to know me, they are able to relax in front of me and my camera. We have already joked, and know each other a bit. They have brought their ideas to me, and we have tweaked it to make it their own and special.
This particular engagement session the bride, Christie, was hoping, praying and doing whatever she could to will the weather into cooperating for their photographs. Whatever she did, it worked, because not only was it a gorgeous day for February, it was unusually pleasant temperature wise as well. The cherry on top of all this? A phenomenal sunset over the Patuxent River! Does help that this couple is also crazy gorgeous.
