Maggie & Brian | Engaged!
New life goal: be able to rock bright red lipstick like Maggie. It'll never happen, but reach for the stars, right? Seriously though, this gal stepped out to give me a big hug when she arrived and my jaw about dropped. She looked amazing and Brian donned a SWEET bow tie! Their smiles and cheery vibes put me immediately at ease, I knew they were going to make the whole session VERY easy for me. :-)
Maggie and Brian= perfect combo. Maggie is such a sweetie pie, and Brian is a goofball. She "warned" me beforehand that he was going to be silly. If you know anything about me, you know I'm the most serious person on the planet. No fun here, this is all business. ;-) Actually, I wholeheartedly encourage my clients to be themselves! I'm certainly not going to pretend that I'm anything but a big ol-sillypants, so why should you?
I'm pretty sure Maggie is a professional model and just didn't tell me, and you'll see why below. I've never had anyone channel a Tyra "smize" almost immediately after we started, there's usually a little warmup period. Nope, not Maggie. This girl came to rock it, and rock it she did.
As we strolled around Brookside Gardens in Maryland, we chatted about their wedding day and how Brian was still pulling for their wedding colors to be that of the Redskins (burgundy and gold for you poor, unfortunate, non-redskin fans out there). ;-) He's a man after my own (and my DC sports fanatic husband's) heart. He isn't winning the color battle though (thankfully) and they are putting together a gorgeous wedding at the Ceresville Mansion in June. I am SO honored and excited to be shooting their wedding in just a few short months, these two are an amazing pair with phenomenal chemistry. Don't believe me? See for yourself!
