Lisa and Nathanael // Engagements in Baker Park, Frederick, Maryland

This is one engagement session where we truly waited for the perfect day.

Lisa and I had, unsuccessfully, been trying to plan for her engagement session with Nathanael since the beginning of May.  Every single time we had a date, though, the skies would open up on us and pour down with rain and thunderstorms.  Though I’m all for cute and fun rain shoots if the occasion calls for it, I prefer the weather to be nice and dry for engagements in general!

So we rescheduled (several times) and then, finally, we had this perfect day in June come along.  Not too hot, not too cold, beautifully sunny…sighs of happiness.

So I finally got to meet up with Lisa and Nathanael and Lisa’s adorable son, Ryan, who came along for some pictures also.  I loved getting to know them and walk around the beautiful grounds of Baker Park, where Nathanael spent his childhood romping around.  Lisa and Nathanael actually met across the street from the area of the park where we started shooting and it was so sweet to hear about how Ryan introduced them. ;)

I had an absolutely fabulous time with them and can’t wait for their wedding in October!  So, without further delay, here are a few shots from their session:

    Wow! Some really nice classic shots. Starting with the photos at the Bell Tower, my favorite is the one where they are sitting in the grass with the Bell Tower behind and the creek can be seen in front of them. Under the bridge silhouette I like but my favorite shots are at the covered bridge. The two looking out the window are awesome. The one’s with Ry and Mom at the bridge very nice. Under the weeping willow tree are my next favorites. However, if this is a contest Ry wins by a land slide for cool hair, creek and he has ducks. Go Ry! Hey and that photographer aint to bad either.

  • Cathy Hinkston (Mother of the Bride)

    The photography is exquisite! It is hard to pick out one that stands above the rest because I love them all but if I have to I will say the one of the three of them with the bell tower in the background. Of just Lisa and Nathanael it would be the black and white at the covered bridge and the other one at the covered bridge where they are both smiling. I agree with Deb – Ry wins hands down – good thing they have him.

  • Gorgeous gorgeous shots at the Park! Beautiful spot–glad you all waited for the weather to cooperate because the photos are remarkable. Loved the covered bridge and the tunnel shots in particular.
