Kelly + Morgan's Engagement - Oregon Ridge Park | Maryland

It's always a bonus to shoot somewhere that isn't just another pretty backdrop, and Kelly and Morgan brought their location a-game for their engagement shoot! These guys met at Oregon Ridge Park, which is not only conveniently close to where they live, but an incredibly gorgeous place to have a photo session.

The lush greenery and the diffused natural light made for some really gorgeous shots, and these two were so fun to work with!

We even got a little pup action going on, big thanks to our behind-the-scenes dog wranglers for all the help.

The park is host to lots of wildflowers, and they even have their own beehives. I was beyond giddy to get to shoot with such vibrant yellows everywhere and to see monarch butterflies hanging out with us!

What an awesome day! Best wishes to Kelly and Morgan, who are tying the knot next year in sunny Florida. Cheers, y'all! -MJ
