Summer time at Sotterley Plantation in Hollywood, Maryland is so beautiful! And I was absolutely thrilled when Mandy and Chris chose this as their location for their engagement portraits. I promise you, I could have stayed in this historic garden photographing these two together ALL DAY if they had have let me.
So far, 2016 has been one exciting year for these two! They began the first of the year as an engaged couple. Surrounded by family Chris proposed to Mandy in front of their Christmas tree as she was preparing to take a family picture together. It immediately caught her off guard and with tears in her eyes, she said yes! A few short months later, Mandy graduated college and started a new job. And a few weeks after that, we met to capture their engagement portraits. This year has brought one exciting thing after another and I couldn’t be happier to witness everything from the sidelines. I haven’t known them long, but from what I’ve seen they have both been carrying around perma-grins since I met them! And there’s no doubt why!!
Congratulations, you two!! What an exciting year 2016 has been for you both. I can’t WAIT to see what 2017 brings you!!!
