Eastern Shore Maryland Engagement – Jesse & Gwen

This time last week, I was making my way down to the Eastern Shore for Jesse & Gwen’s engagement session.  It was such a fun afternoon and I’m so excited to share more with you!

We had the most gorgeous October day last week — it was with temperatures in the upper 60s and the most wonderful breeze coming through.  Between that and the gorgeous light that sparkled off the waterfront and dappled through all the trees, it’s safe to say I was in heaven.

Plus, I don’t think anyone could not have fun with these two!!

The first thing I noticed about these Jesse and Gwen is how comfortable they are together! They respond to each other with such ease and never have smiles far from their faces.  It’s not a particularly normal thing to be in front of the camera, but you wouldn’t know it looking at these two!  They just smiled with ease and laughed as the adorable pup, Brody, joined in on all the fun!  (Isn’t he so cute!?)

We chose this location for their engagement session because it’s where they’ve been spending their quarantine together.  In non-pandemic times, they call New York City home, but for now, they’ve traded the Big Apple for some river views! I don’t think they’re mad about it ;)

Everything about these session was absolutely perfect and I am so excited to share it with you today!  Enjoy a few of my favorites.  If you need me — I’ll be counting down the days until I see these two again next month for an epic celebration!

I cannot wait to see you two again in November for your big day at the Inn at Perry Cabin! It’s going to be incredible!

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.
