This waterfront engagement session on Sue Creek in Essex, Maryland was so fun to do!!! I remember meeting Alysa and Joe in my home office and we just talked for at least an hour or so about pretty much everything. Joe is in the Reserves, so amongst the normal job he works he serves our country as well! So we chatted about Military life, and then about them. About their love for the water and how they spend as much time as they possibly can on their boat with their dog. This also happened to be the 2nd engagement session of the week that incorporated their sweet pup into the session. We knew in talking before they even hired me that they wanted their engagement session to SPEAK them.
Which meant…..The water.
I love a good boat ride! Now, granted most of the boat rides I do are with a cocktail in one hand and music playing it’s always wonderful when I can give my clients EXACTLY what they want. To me, it’s not about dressing up some days and having a fancy session. Sometimes you just need to let your hair down and just let the wind take you where it wants you to go! We launched out of their slip on Sue Creek in Essex, Maryland but not before we took advantage of the golden light on the shore.
Pretty as she can be Alysa and Joe got to snuggle just a little before the ride got bumpy. I’ve been suffering a knee injury but I braced for the ride and it was WORTH it! We got to watch the color of pink cotton candy fill the the sky as we headed back to land that night and it was simply perfect!! I cannot wait until their wedding next year! I can already tell these two are going to have a beautiful day!!
