Of all the things I do as a photographer and business owner, I have to say that shooting engagement sessions is at the tip of the fun scale. (The other end of the fun scale would probably be standing on a ladder in the sun on an August afternoon doing a group shot of 220 people) It’s just so nice to lighten the load in my camera bag and head out the door with no more than a meeting time and location for my bride and groom. Getting to know the B&G and learning about their lives is always so enlightening.
I was especially excited for Jamie and Nate’s session, since it was on Nate’s family farm in Chestertown on the Eastern Shore. I just love the country life, and am such a sucker for dogs and farm animals! Although I was not able to sneak a newborn lamb into my car at the end of the evening, Nate’s mom, Laura hooked me up with a dozen multicolored fresh eggs and a bag of alpaca manure for our garden, and an open invitation to return anytime with my family, which I plan to take her up on this summer!
Nate and Jamie’s wedding is this September at Brittland Manor in Chestertown. I was so thrilled to learn that they took all of my recommendations for vendors. David and I will be working with the dream team of Ken’s Creative Kitchen, Fiona’s Cakes, Amie Decker Beauty, Elegant Hair by Giselle, and Evan of MyDeejay! Can’t wait!
