Ali & Tommy — Baltimore engagement photos — Maryland wedding photography

I have not been good about blogging my engagement sessions. At all. But this was one of my favorites from last year. And since Ali & Tommy are getting married tomorrow (!), I thought I’d post a quick little blog entry from their session while I’m printing schedules for their big day and reformatting memory cards. I first met Tommy in my previous career as a newspaper reporter and writer. I covered courts and crime and the death penalty. He is a prosecutor. Fast forward several years to April of 2011: I was thrilled to get an e-mail from Ali, who introduced herself, shared the exciting news that she and Tommy were engaged and inquired about what dates in May of 2012 I might be available for their not-yet-scheduled wedding. It’s been so much fun getting to know the both of them a bit more as they finalized their plans. We shot their engagement photos at sunrise on a crisp, clear October morning. A few of my favorites:

This is the light that we photographers haul ourselves — and our clients — out of bed for early in the mornings. Many thanks to Ali & Tommy for being so game to join me!

Ali has the most striking, gorgeous eyes. I can’t wait to photograph her in all of her wedding finery!

Sunrise sessions are also good for making sure the streets are empty enough for images like this next one.

A perfect location for a prosecutor: Sitting on the steps of the old police station that was used in filming Homicide.

It is always such a joy to photograph couples who have such an easy way with each other. Ali & Tommy — or Alitommy, as my 2-year-old Molly refers to them — I can’t wait to see you tomorrow and photograph your wedding!
