After meeting while out with friends one night, she was sure he wasn’t her type. After all, he was an artist, and just different than anyone else she had ever met. Despite this, Anne accepted Nick’s invitation to go on a date the following night, and it turns out that was the best decision she had ever made.
After living near St. Louis for a few years, job opportunities led the pair to Baltimore. And this past June, Nick and Anne planned a little East Coast beach getaway. Nick had it all figured out. Anne’s sister and her husband would just happen to be in town, so Anne would have family to share their exciting news with, and they could all celebrate together. The four of them were enjoying a day of sun and sand, when Nick mentioned he needed to go feed the parking meter, Anne accompanied him. She thought it was strange that he brought his backpack along, when really he’d only need his wallet, but she dismissed it, and just went along. Once the parking meter was taken care of, Nick led Anne down the beach to a little seaside B&B. He mentioned that one day they would stay there, perhaps as husband and wife. Anne looked down and saw that Nick was on one knee. With tears and an emphatic “YES!” they joined hands and made their way back to their spot on the beach, letting the waves crash into them as they walked.
Planning a wedding from afar is quite a challenge, but one that Anne and Nick are truly enjoying! It worked out that they would both be in town after the birth of their new nephew, Paxton, so we were able to squeeze in their engagement session too. Anne and Nick had some elements they wanted to incorporate in their session, like their love of wine and bold colors. They are both creative, energetic, beautiful people who love life and trying new things, so they made my job so easy and so much fun!
Anne and Nick, you rocked your session, despite the wind and chilly temperatures! Thank you for trusting in me to capture this exciting time in your lives, it was such an honor! Can’t wait for May!!! Family and friends can view Anne and Nick’s online gallery here!
