Oh, friends! This Annapolis Destination Engagement is special to us for so many reasons!

First, this was our first time ever in Annapolis, and we absolutely fell in love with everything about the city. The historic charm, the beautiful architecture, the water… all of it! Before we photographed our wedding in Baltimore, we got the chance to stay with our sweet friends Krista and Davey, who toured us around their beautiful hometown of Annapolis. We loved seeing their stomping grounds and exploring the city together. We indulged in some of the best breakfast food we’ve ever had at The Iron Rooster (including homemade pop tarts! YUM) in such a cozy little spot, then walked around the city before meeting Rachel and Paul for their engagement. This leads us to the REAL reason this engagement was a special one for us!

It was definitely one of the highlights of our year

Rachel is a wedding photographer herself! She and her sweet mom, Laura, are a talented mother daughter photography team. Yes. Mother, daughter! They’re like the real life Lorelai and Rory! They traveled from their home of Monterey, California to take the AJ Workshop last year, and we’re pretty sure we spent every minute that we weren’t teaching to convince them that they HAD
to start watching Gilmore Girls! Much to our heart’s delight, they’ve since become super fans just like us. They’ve also been working their tails off running the plays from the AJ Workshop, and they’ve seen so much success in their photography business that after Rachel graduated high school, she was able to take this career on full time! We are just so proud of them!

If Rachel and Paul already look familiar to you, you might remember this blog post about the sweetest proposal WE have ever received! Rachel and Paul surprised us in Charleston, and if you haven’t seen it yet, stop reading this and click here right now! It was definitely one of the highlights of our year!

Rachel and Paul, we’ve been looking forward to your engagement session all year, and it was even better than we imagined! We loved exploring Annapolis with you and capturing all the joy the two of you share! It was SO hard to narrow down the images for this post, so be forewarned, this post is a long one! We are SO excited for your wedding!
