Couple Sessions

Katie and Paul are the epitome of a dream couple. They are so selfless, patient, kind, giving and so much fun to be around. When Katie contacted me about photographing their rehearsal dinner (sunset portraits and all!) I was SO honored. Drew and I traveled up to North Beach, Maryland and spent a few hours with them capturing the memories of their last evening before they tied the knot. While I typically do not offer photography outside of wedding days…I loved working with these two and love the memories we were able to document!

Right when we arrived, we headed down to the beach to shoot as the sun was setting behind the water. BUT, we were running a little behind…so the sun had actually already set in all of these photos!! We took ALL of them in less than 15 minutes with the light we had left…and I LOVE them!!! It’s amazing what cameras and Lightroom are capable of!! 🙂

Enjoy some of my favorites from their rehearsal dinner portraits (and see their wedding day over on Natalie Franke’s blog)!!
