Time is a funny thing. When you leave high school, you assume you won’t be hearing much from a lot of the people you went to school with. Angela & I both went to high school together – we were in the drama club together, had mutual friends in the same circles and hung out a lot. Years later, here we are following each other on Instagram and Facebook. I excitedly sent her a CONGRATULATIONS! when I found out she got engaged last Christmas to Bill [like Jose & I did 4 years ago!] and told her we were wedding soul mates when I found out her wedding colors are gray and yellow. Seriously, could there be a more perfect bride for me? So when she got in touch with us to do their Engagement shoots I was beyond excited! There might be a tiny bit more pressure shooting someone you personally know but I didn’t feel it. I was more excited to be the one to share their love with them in something that will last forever – their photos!
A few weeks ago we met Bill and Angela in their beautiful city of Baltimore, Maryland. We absolutely love to travel, especially to states we haven’t been to, and as we walked around for a few hours with them and listened to all the things they both love about their city we really did begin to fall in love with to. And of course, their gorgeous corgi Stella tagged along for the shoot. We started their shoot at Federal Hill Park where Stella is THE STAR of the park! She knew almost every dog that walked by and they loved her! Stella has her own Instagram account by the way! Be sure to follow her @stella_the_corgi :)
Angela and Bill, we had the best day with you & Stella! We hope you have the best time planning your destination wedding and hope you love your photos!
look at that face! Stella is a beauty
the photo above is one of the first photos we took – and I KNEW it was going to be a great shoot right away! such cuteness
Angela made this adorable sign for them to use in their save the dates!
love Stella looking up at them so lovingly
we had the most perfect day for their photos in Baltimore!
we made our way down to the American Visionary Art Museum where they had the most fascinating sculptures -like this egg below!
LOVE this photo!
a picture under the LOVE sign at the AVAM was a must for them – and we LOVED it!
we than made our way down near the Harbor for some shots by the water
such a cutie!
Angela & Bill told us how Baltimore almost knocked down the DOMINO Sugar sign – but the people of the city demanded they keep it & they listened! It’s now a city staple in the skyline. Love it
Angela you are gorgeous!
we than made our way back to Federal Hill Park… and climbed the grass [yes, the grass] to get back up hill!
love these photos!
the picture on the right was taken at the bottom of the hill… and we climbed up all that to get to the top where the rest of the people were!
Stella is their baby and I love how their love for her shines through in these photos.
her face here cracks me up!
I loved Angela & Bill’s outfits! They didn’t match but complimented each other so perfectly!
seriously Angela – STUNNING!
I loved the city streets of Baltimore near Federal Hill – the sidewalks, the colorful doors, every house is so unique!
And we will end this session with Stella and her adorable out pointing paws!
Leave Angela & Bill lots of love in the comments below!
