Katie + Ryan, a Mt. Airy, Maryland Farm Engagement Session

When Katie first emailed me a few weeks ago, I knew right away we would be a perfect fit because her email was just filled with exclamation points and excitement!!  But we also knew things were meant to be when Katie told me when she started dating Ryan: October 23, 2004 – which was exactly one week after Justin and I started dating!  I just love that!  Katie and Ryan met in high school and have been together ever since – through high school, college, and dental school.  And now, these two are planning their fall wedding – and they couldn’t be more excited!

Ryan helps out at a gorgeous farm in New Windsor, Maryland, on the weekends, and Katie and Ryan decided they wanted to have their engagement session at this beautiful place that is meaningful to the two of them.  The farm was INCREDIBLE and it was so fun exploring this space with Katie and Ryan in their pickup truck!  There were over 500 acres of space (I know!!), and these two went the week prior to check out locations they wanted to stop at (seriously – we could spend all weekend here and still have more beautiful spots to take portraits in!).  Katie and Ryan are such sweet, kind-hearted people, and they both give off such positive, loving energies.  It was a really fun evening, and I am so excited to photograph their wedding and celebrate with these two this fall!!  Congratulations, Katie and Ryan!

Katie’s ring is INCREDIBLE!!  Also, I couldn’t believe all the beautiful variety we had for ring portraits in the middle of a field!  There were so many pretty plants and rocks that made such lovely backdrops for Katie’s ring :)
