Todd, Samantha and Ruby – Kinder Farm Park, Maryland

Samantha&Todd.Kinder-Farm-Park.Maryland_0014Todd and Samantha are the sweetest couple and on a lovely fall evening, we walked around Kinder Farm Park in Millersville, Maryland with their adorable pup, Ruby. We talked, laughed, told some jokes (do you have any green beer?? :)) and took some charming photos. The exciting thing about this photo session is that we took a few additional photos that would be used to announce a very special surprise. One of those special photos is at the end of this post.

Todd and Samantha, thanks for letting me spend the evening with you both.  And here is to a healthy and happy “special surprise.” :)Samantha&Todd.Kinder-Farm-Park.Maryland_0024Samantha&Todd.Kinder-Farm-Park.Maryland_0023 Samantha&Todd.Kinder-Farm-Park.Maryland_0012Samantha&Todd.Kinder-Farm-Park.Maryland_0017 Samantha&Todd.Kinder-Farm-Park.Maryland_0005 Samantha&Todd.Kinder-Farm-Park.Maryland_0006 Samantha&Todd.Kinder-Farm-Park.Maryland_0016 Samantha&Todd.Kinder-Farm-Park.Maryland_0010Samantha&Todd.Kinder-Farm-Park.Maryland_0021Samantha&Todd.Kinder-Farm-Park.Maryland_0002 Samantha&Todd.Kinder-Farm-Park.Maryland_0026 Samantha&Todd.Kinder-Farm-Park.Maryland_0003 Samantha&Todd.Kinder-Farm-Park.Maryland_0019

Nicole & Ryan: Jefferson Memorial, Washington, D.C. Proposal


I can’t say how honored I feel to have been present for the engagement of Nicole and Ryan on a sunny and chilly February afternoon.  Ryan contacted me several months before the planned proposal and asked if I could be there to secretly photograph the event.  While an overcast and snowy morning had the potential to put a damper on the day, a sunny afternoon allowed the surprise to go off without a hitch!  The look on Nicole’s face, when Ryan got down on one knee, was priceless.  And then, braving the freezing temps and the windy gusts, we managed to spend a little time after the proposal taking some pictures around the Jefferson.  Ryan and Nicole couldn’t have been more sweet nor could they have been more in love.

Congratulations to you both.  I loved having the opportunity to photograph you guys!!  Thanks for letting me share in the moment. :)







No matter how hard we tried to control the wisps of hair blowing around by the wind, sometimes they had a life of there own. :) I loved the placement of the wisps in the image below.
