Fall Engagement Session at Western Regional Park Hollie + Evan | Woodbine, Maryland

Couple Sessions

There are going to be TWO engagement sessions on the blog this week!!! That’s how you know busy season is in full swing 😉 And I’m so excited to share each and every one of them!! I was looking so forward to meeting Hollie and Evan for their Maryland engagement session. I LOVE shooting at new locations that I’ve never visited before…and Western Regional Park was one of those places! But, it is so sentimental to their relationship because it’s an area they typically visit together…AND it’s where Evan PROPOSED! So special and so sweet!! I had only talked to Hollie on Skype before, but I heard all about Evan and knew I was going to just love him!

We had beautiful weather for this shoot…despite just a little bit of wind 😉 We explored all of the beautiful areas within Western Regional Park and worked with some Beyonce windblown hair to create some GORGEOUS images! The light and fall foliage worked together in the BEST way. And I LOVED how cozy their outfits are. They represented their laid back and FUN personalities so well!!!

Hollie and Evan, I cannot WAIT for your wedding day next year! Enjoy some of my favorites from your engagement session!!
