As a primarily Washington D.C. wedding photographer most of my work happens in the D.C. and Northern Virginia area but when I get a Maryland couple I always enjoy exploring new parts of the state (or city of Baltimore!) that I don’t frequently travel to!
Vanessa and Dave found me over a year ago and asked me to photograph their October 2016 wedding…and this past week we were finally able to meet in person! Luckily, Vanessa was just in sweet in person as she was on the phone when I first talked to her about her wedding plans. Vanessa is a professor at the dental school in Baltimore and Dave is a chemical engineer near Rockville. They met a few years ago on Match.com and knew pretty quickly that this was the real deal. Vanessa used to live in Fell’s Point and Dave would commute an hour one way a lot of days just to spend a few hours with her. As it was the backdrop against which their relationship began to blossom and grow, Vanessa and Dave decided to do their engagement session in Fell’s Point and revisit some of the places in the area that were special to their relationship.
We started at Barcocina where they had their first date and then walked Thames street where they would often stroll on date nights. I love it when my couples pick engagement session locations that have some meaning to them!
Dave and Vanessa are so incredibly sweet and I can’t wait for their wedding this October in Clarksville, Maryland!
