Mike & Lexi | Ellicott City Engagement Session

Posted on Oct 14, 2014 in Engagements | 7 Comments

I was so excited when Mike and Lexi asked to have their session in the historic town of Ellicott City. In all of the years that I have been photographing couples, I have not once had a session there, so this session was a first for me. Spoiler alert: I loved it there! Mike and Lexi were so adventurous and we had a ton of fun roaming the city and taking advantage of all of it’s charm.

While on our way, we wandered by a novelty store, where they saw this cool toy shark. Both being huge JAWS fans, we had to incorporate it into their session!

Lexi has such a stunning ring (great job, Mike) and I couldn’t wait to photograph it. We saw these cool dishes in front of one of the shops and I knew it was just perfect!

Later, when I saw the moss, I knew it wanted to photograph it again.

One of Lexi’s favorite movies is The Little Mermaid… so how fitting is this??? I *may* have had the song stuck in my head the whole way home…

Did I mention that these two met at one of their favorite band’s concerts? Well, they did and I just LOVE that they brought along some concert t-shirts for their session!

I was hoping for an amazing sunset, and unfortunately, it didn’t happen, but we still made use of some gorgeous light and then took advantage city for some night shots
