Recently, I went to the Bethesda Country Club in Bethesda, MD to meet and photograph Jessica and John who are getting married there in July of next year. The golf course had a lot of beautiful locations – we just had to watch out for flying golf balls headed our way!
When Jessica contacted me, she said that she wanted the coverage that her friends, Jill and Adam had and asked what dates was I available so that they could plan around that – it’s always such a pleasure being referred by one of my previous couples and of course, a big “Thank you” goes out to Jill and Adam.
For their engagement photos, they both decided to wear dressier outfits…I really liked the dressy look.
This area looked great in both color and black and white, but in the black ad white version, I really like how the texture of the tree bark came out and the blurred branches in background seem to curve around to embrace the two of them.
From “technical” photography standpoints, this image is imperfect….but I loved the moment…capturing slices of relationships is exactly why I love my job so much – while I’m only showing one of the images, I captured a sequence of the two of them just relaxing with each other, looking happy, and enjoying hanging out.
Same location as above, quieter moments.
Just love this.
This was a location that Jessica specifically requested, and I can see why – it’s the driveway into the country club and we had a really fun time dodging cars going in and out along with trying to avoid having cars going past on the frontage road…in one of the out-takes, there was a big yellow bus going past!
Jessica and John – it was great hanging out with you! Can’t wait to start working on your guestbook and I’m really looking forward to seeing you again on your wedding day!
