Rainy Day Baltimore Engagement Session Brittney + Bryan | Baltimore, Maryland

Couple Sessions

Ohhhh these two!!! Brittney’s initial inquiry is one of those emails that just makes you fall in love with her immediately. She was SO excited, joyous and wonderful from the very start. Her very first email to me included a video of Bryan gifting her a brand new Husky puppy (which was later a huge part of the proposal)…and her falling to the floor in excited tears!!! I just loved her right away! Then, when we had our first Skype call…she cried from excitement and almost made me cry!! Brittney and Bryan’s engagement session got rained out last month…so we chose a new date (AND a rain date the following day) – but there was rain in the forecast for BOTH!! There was LESS of a chance of rain for Thursday…so we went with it and drove up to Baltimore!!

When we arrived, the rain was definitely there to stay. There was a steady mist falling, a strong breeze and lots of overcast clouds. I was nervous that Brittney and Bryan may be stressed when they arrived…but they walked up with HUGE smiles on their faces, two fluffy huskies and umbrellas in hand! I knew that it was going to become a favorite engagement session, despite the crummy weather 🙂 And it did!!

Enjoy some of my favorites from Brittney and Bryan’s Baltimore engagement!! And I just have to thank them for introducing us to the most delicious crab restaurant after their session and sharing hush puppies and crab dip with us!! We love you guys!
