Anna & Matt: Engagement Session

Garrett County MD Portrait Photographer

Matt emailed me in the fall about their January wedding. They had only been engaged for a couple of months and were only going to have a five-month engagement. A short engagement isn’t the norm for most of my couples, but these two said they didn’t want to wait long. They had known each other for a while and didn’t mind making things happen quickly. I waited over a year to marry Brian and hated waiting! If you know you don’t need a long engagement and can plan quickly, high five to you! We planned Matt and Anna’s engagement in about four days. He emailed and said they definitely wanted to book with me and wanted to get engagement pictures with the fall colors. It was the last week of October so we scheduled right away hoping we’d find what was left of the season. And we did! We met at the Spruce Forest Artisan Village in Grantsville, MD and during the second part of the session, we found color! I couldn’t believe it! Garrett County, MD leaves peak before those in surrounding areas, so I was convinced the leaves would be completely gone at the very end of October. But God held on to a few leaves for us and I was so excited! Enjoy my favorites from Anna and Matt’s engagement session. 🙂

We tried the “model look” in the first 10 minutes of the session and these two rocked it!

I’ve had lots of couples including their dogs lately! They certainly add an element of fun and cuteness to the pictures. 🙂

I loved Anna’s accessories! The extra touch of color and sophisticated-ness and fun of the gloves and hat really helped create a scene…

This is a BIG favorite! Their romantic kiss, her jacket and accessories and the fall leaves…I feel like this was taken in a European countryside just minutes from a cute, quaint little town. 🙂
