Charm City love? Nicole and Mike are all over that! I had so much fun with this sweet sweet couple. Although it took us taking Nicole’s mom’s advice and digging into some snow crabs to really start to relax and have fun, the comfort level between Nicole and Mike was very evident and has made me smile time and time again as I’ve edited the images. The way they took their shoes off every chance they got, the way she hooked her finger in his belt loop during our sunset portraits on Federal hill, the way he gently nestled his nose into her hair as she smiled for the camera just make my heart warm and excited for their life together! From Cross Street for crabs to Pub Dog (where they met), to the American Visionary Art Museum and finally Federal Hill with that gorgeous view of the Baltimore skyline, I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Nicole and Mike. Below is a selection of images from our afternoon together, enjoy!
Carrie and Jami were a wonderful couple to photograph. When I met with them the day of the session, Jami expressed two sentiments: one that the constant flow of red sox fans on the streets of DC as they headed to an exhibition game right under our noses was KILLING her…; and two that she was a little nervous about the whole picture taking thing. Well, I couldn’t help her with the baseball, even though as a Big Papi fan myself I could understand where she was coming from, but the picture taking thing ended up not being an issue. She was a natural! Carrie and Jami have such a palpable comfort level with each other that they eased into the photos together, they held each other’s hand as they got more comfortable and then Carrie just watched and smiled as her partner started to become more and more playful with the pictures. Below are some of the images from our beautiful Spring afternoon in DC, from Meridian Hill Park to the Masonic Temple where they spent one of their first dates talking on the steps. Enjoy!
Looking at these photos just makes me hungry. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s lunchtime, but the idea of fresh red snapper crudo with clementines and pistachio oil makes my mouth water. Top it off with a bite of that red velvet cupcake and I’m in heaven…I shot the review for six burner restaurant & bar for the Richmond Times-Dispatch and built a slideshow, click on the link and listen to chef Philip Denny talk about his food. The menu is seasonal, so don’t be disappointed if the snapper isn’t on it, just try something else!
