kelly + sam :: engaged!

backstage pass.


sam + kelly :: engaged! :: university of maryland, college park.

i was absolutely thrilled when kelly wrote to tell me she + sam were engaged — he popped the question just weeks after kristi + jon’s awesome wedding where kelly was a bridesmaid! even more awesome, kelly is kristi’s younger sister — so fun! kelly + kristi (like most sisters) are similar in some ways, but very different in others. they are both gorgeous blondes and totally in love, with incredible, positive energy. however, while kristi + jon are total hams in front of the camera, kelly + sam are much more mellow (dare i say, camera shy?) — in fact, when i went back to look for pics of them at kristi + jon’s wedding i only had one photo of sam from the entire night! it was great to see them again, and i loved getting to know them better during our session.

they met and fell in love a few years ago while attending the university of maryland — they worked together at the performing arts center (which is how they first met) and so we started our session in the theatre. it was very cool to have all access to such a unique spot, and with so much meaning! from there we ran all over campus, chasing the sun and visiting some of their favorite spots — the mall + fountain, the sun dial, jim henson’s statue, the famed bronze testudo, and even a topiary version of the beloved mascot. it was a gorgeous summer evening and i’m so very excited for this fabulous couple!

a huge congrats to kelly + sam — enjoy!

last sunday i met kristi + jon at gayfields farm on gibson island for their amazing engagement session. i absolutely love shooting in the city, but i was so excited for a change of scenery and was absolutely delighted to discover a pristine horse farm located right on the water. the three of us explored the entire area, wandering through the wooded grounds, walking along the sandy shore, hanging out on the pier and lingering in the horse stables. it was like a fun field trip!

even better, kristi + jon are one of the cutest, happiest, couples i’ve ever photographed – as evidenced by the fact that they are either laughing or kissing (or both!) in every single photograph. these two have amazing energy and are total love birds – i saw it the first time we met and it was fantastic to spend the evening getting to know them in such a gorgeous place. their wedding will be one of the highlights of 2010 and i cannot wait!

people in love make me happy :) 

so here’s to love and here’s to my first official couple for 2010!

enjoy!
