the Cutters - One Year Anniversary || Adkin's Arboretum, Maryland

I had SUCH a phenom time with Sarah, James, and their sweet pup Stanlee at the Adkin's Arboretum. They wanted a little session for their one year anniversary, and Sarah was positively giddy getting to work together - I just loved their attitudes and how sweet they were on each other!

And in this episode of Weird Things Photographers Get Super Stoked About: tiny bugs floating around catching the sunlight! I've had little gnats and dust motes make similar effects for me, but never in this number. Total magic - especially since they weren't exactly swarming or even vaguely interested in us.

The trees weren't super vibrant in their fall colors just yet, but it worked so well with the threads that Sarah and James were rocking! And of course, their pup was *all* about playing in the leaves...


Thanks for a fantastic session, y'all! -MEJ
