Fells Point Sunrise Session in Baltimore
I’m too lucky sometimes. I get to work with… really phenomenal people and on this particular morning, on this particular day, these phenomenal people happened to be Seattle wedding photographer Kirstin Marie and her husband, Jon. The sky was like sherbet, the weather was perfect, and we got to enjoy the stillness that is Baltimore mornings, before the hustle and bustle picks up, before cars flood the streets, and, thankfully, after the trash has been swept up from the night before.
Cool people, cool places, amen. <3
Smoke Bomb Photo Session in Virginia
I’m going to do things out of order here, OK? Because I photographed their engagement session, their wedding, and I haven’t blogged either, but this is their first anniversary session. Since the days are looking cold, feeling warm, and reminding me more of how everything came together on this day, I wanted to share Tara and Gabe’s photos from how they celebrated their first anniversary.
We took to the woods, smoke bombs in our pockets, lit them carefully (and disposed of them respectfully) and I feel happy that I know these really awesome people. Here are a few from that day together.
9 Tips for Picking an Engagement Session Location
The location of your photos will help to define the mood of the pictures.
I don’t want to be a buzzkill, but if you’ve been lusting after photos of the gorges in Oregon and you live in Miami, matching the aesthetic isn’t going to be ideal, but that doesn’t mean you should give up all hope and tell your photographer to just meet you at the nearest city park.
As a photographer, I’m always down to help my clients find a location, especially for those who are traveling in and don’t know the area, but time and time again I’ve been shown that my clients are honestly SO awesome at this. If you’re on the hunt for a spot for your own photographs and feeling a little lost, I have some general guidelines I’ve found helpful and I wanted to share the 9 tips to keep in mind when looking for your engagement session location.
