Spring engagement sessions have arrived! YAY!
I absolutely LOVE living in Rochester and photographing couples all over this beautiful city and it’s suburbs, but it’s always nice to switch it up as well! Nice is a bit of an understatement actually; traveling is one of my favorite parts of life, especially when I get to photograph a love story while I’m away! Last week I made the trip to Baltimore to do just that.
Kristen and Rob are getting married later this year in Skaneateles, (a little gem of a town in central NY that everyone should visit it they have the chance!) but they wanted some photos together from a time other than their wedding. I hear this a lot; that a couple has been together for years, but they still don’t really have any “good” photos together aside from low-quality cell phone snapshots. An engagement session is the perfect solution to this!
I wasn’t sure what to expect from Baltimore, I’d never been before but was excited to check it out! It took me approximately 30 seconds of being in the city to fall in love with it. The area where we started the session was the Mount Vernon neighborhood, which I’m told is the cultural center of Baltimore. In the middle of it was a beautiful park full of spring flowers in bloom, beautiful staircases, fountains, etc. The streets nearby were filled with Victorian row homes and a plethora of cute shops and restaurants – lovely area! After we were done there, we headed to Federal Hill, which is literally a giant hill that overlooks the city and the harbor. It was the perfect place to capture Kristen and Rob with their city as the backdrop! The area nearby was fantastic as well, but I’m starting to feel like a commercial for Baltimore, so I’ll stop. BUT EVERYONE SHOULD GO THERE.
Kristen and Rob are fantastic! They’re a lot of fun, relaxed, and were great at being themselves in front of the camera. I’m so thankful that I got the chance to get to know them before their wedding, which I am now looking forward to even more!
Enjoy the photos!
