Black Hills Engagement Session in Germantown, Maryland

Black Hills Engagement Session

When we met with Alicia and Pricila we knew we were going to have a good time shooting this couple. They were instantly a ton of fun just to chat with. They will be getting married in Germantown, Maryland in October and we’re really looking forward to shooting their big day. The fall colors and are going to be a killer backdrop as their venue is nestled into the woods.  This Black Hills engagement session in Germantown Maryland, was such a beautiful shoot.

Black Hills Regional Park is one of our favorite places to shoot couples and families.  It’s got a lake, woods, hidden paths, and open grass fields. Tons of opportunity to make gorgeous portraits here. We’ve developed a nice walking flow through this area that allows us to capture more romantic images nestled in the wooded areas. The path there is pretty quiet so you can shoot undisturbed for a little while. We follow that right to the lakes edge where we can capture some moments that include the lake, shorefront and the large open grassy area. 

During the nicer weather this area can be quite busy with bikers, hikers and kids running around so knowing our flow is helpful to getting the images we need. The only shots we haven’t taken at Black Hills are from a boat! Fingers crossed that opportunity comes soon.
