JP + Angela's Engagement Session || Ocean City, Maryland

I'm back from Georgia with a whole bunch of crazy stories and photographs (like having my first solo exhibition in four years, jamming out with Cage the Elephant, and drinking champagne on stage with the Wu-Tang Clan!!) to share, but first we've gotta get this awesome engagement shoot up! JP and Angela are getting hitched next year at Bear Trap Dunes, so of course we wanted to shoot at the beach for their engagement session. We had a fantastic two-part shoot with a bright night at the boardwalk and an early rise to catch the sun coming up on the 139th Street beach.

The Boardwalk in Ocean City is full of sights and sounds and smells, and made for a really fun and bright backdrop for our shots. I also *may* have sung "Under the Boardwalk" way too many times, but JP and Angela have a great sense of humor (and an amazing ability to stand extra still during long exposures!).

A few hours of rest and we were up with the sun for some beautiful golden light and soft colors.

I can't wait for next summer for what I know is going to be a crazy-fun + beautiful day with these two wonderful people and their awesome families! -MEJ
