Did you catch Carina and Jon’s engagement session published on United with Love last week? I discovered the Shrine of Saint Anthony in Howard County the day before I met them for their wedding consult, and as we chatted through the evening, it struck me that their personalities would really mesh well with this amazing location I had just found. When selecting an engagement location, you really want your portraits to reflect who you are as a couple. While part of that is conveyed through your outfit choices and the emotions that I’ll pull from you in your session, having the right environment to shoot in helps as well! In this case, Carina and Jon’s engagement session was a perfect reflection of who they are as a couple; equal parts glam and cozy casual. They incorporated their love of getting fancied up along with the outdoors into their session, and I had the honor of working with their furbaby Sawyer as well (YES he coordinates perfectly! Dog on fleek). I cannot wait for Carina and Jon’s wedding at the American Visionary Arts Museum later this summer!
