I could tell in her emails, that Jeanne and Justin were both nervous about their upcoming engagement session. While they both love to laugh and be silly among family and friends, their outward demeanor is pretty shy and reserved. So, when I arrived to this magnificent family farm right in good ol’ Southern Maryland, I reassured them that this was all about them, enjoying what they love most in life while celebrating their engagement. “Relax and just have fun…”
This engagement session was a photographer’s dream trifecta: a beautiful couple that’s bashful, an amazing location and gorgeous light. Yeah, I was giddy over the overgrown field around her dad’s truck, the tall yellow flowers and the ANIMALS!! But, guys, it got better. In the middle of trying to reassure them that having their photographs taken should be fun and lighthearted, these two relaxed and forgot the camera was there. In that hour, I watched them fall in love with each other all over again. It was amazing. I can’t say that enough where I won’t sound cheesy. We all expected to have a playful and silly engagement session, but just that easily they relaxed and their engagement session turned romantic and swoonworthy.
I can’t wait to see these photographs hung on the home they are building at the farm. Their upcoming October wedding can’t come soon enough!
