Back in July, we shot engagement portraits with my cousin Christine and her fiance Greg in Rockville, Maryland — and we promised there was more to come. Engagement Session 2.0 happened this past weekend, when we headed to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware with them for some pictures in the little beach town where they had their first date on July 4, 2005, where they’ve celebrated their anniversary every year since, and where they’ll be getting married next summer, on the tenth anniversary of that first date. It couldn’t have been a more perfect place to continue their story.
We started out wandering around town and along the boardwalk . . .
. . . and then after a quick outfit change, we headed down to the beach during the delicious early autumn golden hour.
Love this next one! And even though I’m from a beach town, I love visiting other beach towns, especially ones farther up the coast. There’s just a different feel to the beach in the Mid Atlantic.My favorite reason to photograph engagement sessions: I love getting to see how much couples love each other. Not just on the wedding day, but when it’s quiet, when it’s just the two of them.
A little beach bunny decided to crash our shoot.
Remember what I said about the delicious light? Christine and Greg, you couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful evening!Favorite!As the sun dipped behind the horizon, the sky over the ocean turned all the shades of cotton candy.Christine, you looked beautiful — I can’t wait to see you on your wedding day!I really, really can’t get over Christine’s ring.
