It was mid-march when we shot this engagement session on the hilltop of Federal Hill Park. We’ve had several shoots at this location now, and it’s always a little windy. This day however, was extra windy. The kind of wind that will pick your hair up and whip it all around in every direction if it’s long. It was also teeth chattering cold. Cold and windy are not usually the best conditions for shooting an engagement session but Maureen and Nick were troopers! They snuggled up to each other and it helped them not look too cold in pictures!
Sometimes, I have a really hard time deciding between black and white versions and color versions of an image. I used to struggle when editing engagement sessions and weddings and go back and forth figuring out which images I would make black and white. The truth is that most images look great in color and black in white! It just adds a little something extra. So instead of only providing a limited number of black and white photos, I said screw it, I’m editing every image in black and white and white too! That means that for every engagement session and wedding, I give my clients every single one of their final images in color AND in black and white for the basic package price! You’re probably all like “for real?”… and I’m like “Straight up. For real!”
Now let’s celebrate by checkin out these sweet black and white pictures.
You don’t have to go to all the way into DC to get all that cherry blossom gooey goodness, just take a walk down some of the streets in Bethesda! One of the photos from this shoot even made it on Huff Post- 14 Engagement Photos That Will Make You Fall In Love With Nature
