Before we even met, I really, really hoped Amy and Josh would chose me to be their wedding photographer. That’s because I did what any crazy photographer would do after I received their inquiry: I stalked them on social media. Yup, I admit it, but it was for “research purposes”. bahahahahaha This way I would know who they were when they walked through the coffee shop door. 😉 That’s when I came across this one picture that said it all, and I knew I really wanted to work with them: Josh and Amy being goofy, showing off her engagement ring, and the fantastic news that she said “yes”.
As we sat across the table for our wedding consult, I realized they were just as down to earth and crazy in love as I hoped. There is no denying their love for one another. Josh was tired from working late nights, but equally excited about the planning process as Amy gushed the details of their Belmont Farm wedding planned for next June. These two were freaking adorable! So, when they shared that their connection began by following each other on Instagram, I was laughing and screaming inside “pick me, pick me!”.
We talked about their engagement session and how to really make it fit their fun personalities. So we picked the perfect location in Southern Maryland that had cornfields and rolling hills, perfect to show off their southern country style and end the night dancing by the water with the most amazing sunset.
We all know that wedding planning is serious work for the bride and groom. For Amy and Josh’s Southern Maryland engagement session, the night was full of laughing and being true to what makes their love story amazing, what they enjoy doing together and the exciting journey they are on to become husband and wife. No stress, no pressure, just having fun, hanging out with the love of their life. Your engagement session should be just that: all about you.
