Diana + Michael in Baltimore, Maryland

Baltimore Engagement Session_001

Appropriately enough, this adorable couple met at a wedding in Baltimore.  The bride at that wedding was confident that Michael and Diana would be a good match and introduced them to one another during the reception.  D+M hit it off immediately and spent the rest of the evening engrossed in converation.  They knew they had something special but were unsure what to do about it considering that Diana lived in New York City and Michael in Toronto.  They friended one another on facebook and after communicating online for a bit, Michael came up with a bogus reason for why he needed to visit Diana’s city.  The rest, as they say, is history.  Now these two adorable love birds live together in the big apple and are planning a wedding for Baltimore, the city where Diana is from and where they first hit it off, for October of this year.  These two are so sweet and so affectionate with one another.  It was an awesome afternoon, walking around Fells Point and Federal Hill, and getting to know them a little bit better.  I can’t wait for October!

Kayla + Kevin at Hotel Monaco Alexandria

Hotel Monaco Alexandria_001I cannot even come close to describing, in words, how adorable, sweet, lovable, and AMAZING this couple is.  They have IT.  They have that palpable love and chemistry that just screams THESE TWO ARE MEANT TO BE TOGETHER.  You can see it and you can sense it:  Kayla and Kevin are soul mates.  It was beautiful to witness such palpable love and to be with them on the day that they got married.  I love these two amazingly sweet and joyful people and I feel so, so lucky they trusted me to be their photographer.  Congratulations, K+K.  You guys are going to be SO happy together and you know it.  Enjoy Aruba, newlyweds!
