Melanie and I have known each other for years, meeting through mutual friends and realizing over time how small the world is as we discover our many connections. I could not be more happy for her to have found Chris. These two are so completely in love and it was truly a blessing to photograph them. Melanie is a friend who has a love for photography herself and it is always a little intimidating to have a photographer in front of your camera! But it makes it that much more fun, too. :) Melanie and Chris are getting married next month, so when there was nothing but rain on the forecast last week, I was expecting we would have no choice but to try to reschedule even though we were running out of time before their wedding! And yet, I got a call from Melanie that afternoon saying, “I’m thinking an engagement shoot in the rain could be kind of fun!” And so, we indeed shot through the rain! We had so much fun together and we practically had downtown Annapolis almost entirely to ourselves! Melanie and Chris, I can’t wait to see you again in a month!
