keri + patrick | wyman park dell + baltimore museum of art | baltimore engagement session

Last Fall, Keri and I connected through a friend of a friend, as a result of a styled shoot I did with In A Bow Event Design! I can’t say it enough (wait a minute, now I sound like my dad…), but it really is all about who you know. So glad I know the right people! 😉

Keri and Patrick met playing trivia on opposing teams, one night at the Otto Bar just south of the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus. They both have a penchant for making the other laugh; their smiles and compassionate nature are quick to put you at ease while in their presence.

They used to walk their dog in Wyman Park and love the quiet, tucked away nature of it. I did too! As we were shooting, I kept wanting to sit down and have a picnic among the big trees, dappled sun and low rock walls.

I just love the expressions Keri makes while in Patrick’s arms. And you know how I have a thing for curly hair… us curly hair girls need to stick together! 😉

This might be my favorite photo of our session… the golden light peeking through the trees, the flowers spotted throughout the grass and an adorable couple in love!

How cute are they?! Not to mention the fact that we were in a garden oasis somewhere with perfect weather. Our session occurred right after a few days of strong, rainy weather and I think Mother Nature was showing off as much greenery and lushness as she could muster!

See? Lush garden oasis, for real. 🙂

After strolling the garden, we walked over to the Newsletter Office, right at the base of the sculpture garden. It’s the sweetest little stone building, accessible by a tiny, narrow wooden walkway… perfect for a fun-loving couple! 😉

So, let’s take a quick timeout and mention the fact that the original plan had us exploring the sculpture garden just behind this building… it was open when we first arrived to location scout, I got all excited for it and then an hour later, CLOSED. Bummer!!! But, instead we explored the surrounding gates and ivy-covered walls of the BMA. I’m pretty happy with how these came out!

And I have to end on this image, another one of my favorites. Talk about classic romance… Keri + Patrick, we had a blast exploring the area together and can’t wait for your August wedding!
