Extended Engagement Session in Maryland: Alyssa + Kyle

Engagement

He calls her “Princess” and I’m sure she calls him something like “Snuggle Bunny Boo” but he wouldn’t dish. We had a very full day of shooting around Maryland for Alyssa and Kyle’s extended engagement session. It was torture to not overload the blog with pictures from it!

I’ll let them give you all the details, but they met at a friend’s party while at Penn State together. Forget dinner and movies – their very first date was a the ice skating rink at Penn’s Landing where they were witness to a proposal right there on the ice. Kyle’s proposal to Alyssa was at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse where he slipped the maître d’ the ring and it arrived later on a platter where Kyle dropped to one knee.

They moved around a bit and eventually ended up in Bel Air, Maryland together. We started the session in the complex where they live. You’d never know that were surrounded by cars on all sides, would you?

We jetted down to the adorable downtown Havre de Grace. This historic little town at the mouth of the Susquehanna River was such a great idea. There were so many little nooks and crannies, bright walls, and people watching going on. I learned that they love going camping, drinking wine, and playing board games. Though I don’t think they meant that they do all three at once, it sounds like a fantastic idea to me.

You know you’re doing something right when pedestrians and tell you to get a room!

Kyle had driven his motorcycle down so we could catch a few shots of them with the bike.

We took a quick trip to Bomboy’s for ice cream. I absolutely love detours like this and these pictures were so much fun! Mucho thanks to Kyle for getting me a mint chocolate chip!

We were able to play in golden hour while at the boardwalk that runs along the Millard J. Tydings Memorial Park from the Concord Point Lighthouse to the City Yacht Basin there. The place was gorgeous and the temperatures dropped a few degrees to make the rest of the session not so sweltering.

Alyssa and Kyle, thanks so much for showing me around your hood! I can’t wait to see what you two do with the Hotel du Pont in the spring!

Delaware County Engagement Photographer | Ridley Creek State Park | Hannah + Travis
Hannah and Travis met about four years ago where she was a bartender and he was “security”. The first time they talked she noted that he looked familiar. He responded, “no” and walked away. You see, Travis gets nervous around pretty girls. A few days later he realized that she was right and that they actually went to the same small high school. It took about a month later before he got the nerve to talk to her again.Needless to say, they worked it out. They booked a few months ago but I met them the first time at their engagement session at Ridley Creek State Park in Media, PA. They brought the two new family members, Lana and Jack – ...

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Queen Village |Britt + Paul
I was the fifth wheel for a sunny afternoon engagement session with Britt, Paul, George, and Frank the other week in Queen Village.  Thankfully, they didn’t seem to mind my company. They spend a lot of time enjoying their neighborhood – the walks, restaurants, and people they’ve all come to know and love.  Somehow they’ll uproot just a few days after their wedding at the College of Physicians (this weekend!) and move for Britt’s internship in Michigan. Britt and Paul met five years ago on what I consider to be the best possible place to find a partner – the internets!  Britt was foolishly apprehensive of this younger gentleman b ...
