Karaline & Nick’s engagement session has been on the books for at least 6 weeks.  The day comes around and there are thunderstorms and lots of rain predicted.  Normally, Becky and I don’t reschedule, but with all the crazy weather we’ve been having, I called Becky up and we talked about our plan B.  Thankfully, we didn’t have to use it, though, and it turned out to be a nice evening!  We were so glad we didn’t have to pull out our rain gear and umbrellas!

When we asked Karaline & Nick to give us a few words that describe their relationship they said “Trusting, loving, comfortable, supportive, & fun”, and after spending the evening with them, I couldn’t agree more!  We had such a fun evening together and Karaline and Nick kept their energy up and made each other laugh all evening long.

Ellicott City is such a cute little town, and there are so many little places that even though Becky did a session here just two days before, this one looks completely different!

When you find a picture frame outside in the middle of a garden you just have to take some photos with it!  Karaline & Nick knew just what to do.:)

You weren’t kidding! These are wonderful photos! I love a couple of the ones where Nick is kissing Karaline on the forehead. Really sweet. They are so you–I could almost hear the laughter in each and every picture.

Caitlin Connolly - July 7, 2015 - 11:51 pm

Beautiful couple. Beautiful Ellicott City :) <3

Daniel and Hannah met online and have spent most of their relationship apart. Far apart, actually! Except for an occasional visit, Hannah has been living and working in Turkey as teacher at an international school until just a month ago. Nevertheless, they had the most natural and relaxed way around one another!!! Hannah has a million dollar smile that I could have photographed all day and Daniel knew just how to bring it out. I’ve hardly ever edited so many laughing pictures!:-)

We met early to avoid the rain that was predicted, and of course, as happens EVERY time, there weren’t even any clouds in the sky when we finished. Because of the early start, we had to be a little careful about the harsh light and wrapped up before golden hour. Didn’t matter! When I met Daniel and Hannah at the Bean Hollow in Ellicott City, they were sharing a snack side by side in the same booth and the most gorgeous window light was on them. The shoot only got better from there.

Can’t wait until August 1st, Hannah and Daniel!!

Allie McFadden - July 5, 2015 - 11:23 pm

Woohoo!!! So beautiful!

I know that I overuse capital letters and that they really mean that you’re YELLING and not just emphasizing a word. So I’ve been working on that (A little. Not very successfully.)

But when Susie offered to always cover a least-favorite job of mine, I really was yelling this response that I emailed back right away:

 

NO! YOU’RE KIDDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I could not even do that to you.

I HATE THAT JOB SO MUCH.

 

And when she responded that, indeed, she really was not kidding, I actually audibly laughed with relief. Like this: LOL!!!

She didn’t take it for “free”, she just agreed that I can always do one of my favorite jobs (blogging the weddings) in exchange (how can she not love that job?).

For Susie, it was about which job takes less time. For me, it was about which job was more tedious.

Teamwork. It’s the best:-)
