Morgantown WV Wedding Photographer
Mara and Mike’s two-part engagement session began at the “famous” WVU football stadium in Morgantown West Virginia and ended in my backyard in Garrett County, MD. We met at the stadium in the fall and just yesterday, on a chilly May morning (Summer, are you coming or what??), we met again to finish things off. It was nice seeing these two TWICE before their wedding day (only 18 days away!). And really, it was Mara and I’s third encounter.
I first met Mara last summer at Panera. She and her mom graciously agreed to work with my busy schedule and meet for a later-in-the-evening gathering. I had a ball talking with the two of them and after “closing down” the restaurant, I was very anxious to work with them! It’s always such a blessing to make an instant connection with my clients…and their moms. 🙂
I’ll see you guys on June 4th!
This was the second time I was on the field and it was still a little bit surreal. I know many WVU fans and this place is a BIG DEAL!
A favorite for me. 🙂
We had the place to ourselves!
I love the background the seats created…
Mara’s got some cute shoes! Wait until you see the ones she wore for the second session. 🙂
Change of scenery! WVU stadium to my backyard…
I wouldn’t normally schedule a 9am session on a sunny day, but we had a hard time coordinating schedules and with their quickly approaching wedding date, we had to make something happen! Thankfully, Mara and Mike agreed to come to me so we could use the privacy and SHADE of my backyard…
I could definitely tell these two were much more comfortable in front of the camera during round two. That means round three, their wedding day, should be a breeze! Oh, and notice Mara’s cute shoes again!
I love how the greenery and diffusion of the woods created a morning “glow” for the pictures…
I’m a little bias, but my backyard seems to look good in any season. 😉
A good black and white snuggle portrait always catches my eye. 🙂
A favorite. 🙂
Mara and Mike will be back on the blog this summer! Go back and see. 🙂
