Brandon + Becca's Engagement Session || Kent Island, Maryland

It's an unwritten rule that all my shoots are going to be fun. No ifs, ands, or buts, we're going to laugh and have a good time. The proof is in the pudding, I have fabulous clients that're relaxed and enjoying themselves without overthinking how they're posing or what the wind is doing to their hair. Brandon and Becca? Nailed it, absolutely could not stop laughing with these guys for their session.

Beyond constantly slapping off a barrage of very hungry and aggressive horse flies (hey, we were in a marsh!), we also found some gorgeous lavender bushes just buzzing with some local bumblers. Luckily they were happy to share their space for a few ring shots before we got to the beach.

This sunset? Wowwwww. Brandon and Becca made it out to this jetty for some seriously Prince Eric/Ariel vibe shots.

Me? I was having a slightly less Disney Princess moment while mid-shin deep in some seriously sticky mud - so worth it! 

Did I mention we were total goof-offs for this whole shoot? If you don't wanna take the giant smiles in almost every single photos as proof, I humbly submit this masterpiece.

How do you round out a super successful session? Sneak a bottle of bubbles to the beach!

And....that's a wrap! Shout out to Becca's little sister Sydney for dog-wrangling and champagne flute fetching for us.

Cheers, and congrats to this awesome couple on their engagement - loved working with y'all! -MEJ
