Downtown Frederick Engagement – Josh & Taylor

I am so thrilled to share more from this gorgeous old-world inspired Downtown Frederick engagement.

From the first time Taylor and I chatted on the phone, I knew that she and I were a great fit.  She is kind, thoughtful, and has incredible taste.  Plus, when she talked about Josh, you could hear her light up.  After meeting him finally, I can tell why!

These two are getting married next September at Strong Mansion.  They chose their venue there because of it’s old-world charm!  Who can blame them? It’s so lovely.

When it came time to choose a location for their engagement session, we wanted to emulate the same feel of their wedding day.  Downtown Frederick ended up being the perfect spot! The river walk is full of ivy-covered bridges, beautiful brick homes.  Plus, we were blessed with the most wonderful weather and gorgeous light.  Pair that with their Meghan Markle-inspired outfits, and I was basically in heaven.

Even better? Josh and Taylor!  These two are so kind and easy going.  The whole evening felt like I was strolling around with old friends.  They’ve had a lot of things on their plates this year, but have taken it all in stride.  It’s inspiring!

… anyways, in case you can’t tell, I’m a little obsessed with this series of photos and I’m so excited to share it with you today!

Enjoy a peek into Josh & Taylor’s Downtown Frederick engagement!  I’ll be counting down until next September if you need me!

Wife, mama, wielder of light & joy, and capturer of moments.  I thrive off of conversation and genuine connection.  In between wrangling our kiddos, and hanging my husband, you'll find me dreaming up my next idea or creative endeavour.  It's these things that culminate to give my imagery a warmth and joy to them - the greatest compliment I could receive.

Lauren grew up spending her summers at the shore, and when she and Nick got together, she couldn't help but introduce him, too!  Their session in New Jersey was filled with gorgeous light, sweet smiles, and so much love & laughter.

Connor and Alli's wedding celebration was full of lush florals, gorgeous details, and a whole lot of joy.  Their first look was one of the most sacred moments I've witness on a wedding day... filled with so much delight and love!

One of my greatest inspirations comes from exploring and the California coast fulfills that wanderlust like nothing else.  Anytime I have rolling hills and oceanside views, I'm in heaven.

She's the ultimate hypewoman. I was pretty nervous about being photographed and Lauren made everything fun and flexible. Honestly, I can't imagine the day without her and her team. They were wonderful and hearing from Lauren was always a genuine delight.
