Patapsco Park Engagement Session | K+B

K+B are rock climbers, so of course we had to do a Patapsco Park engagement session since that was the location of one of their very first dates! The two live in Colorado now, which makes me incredibly jealous… I loved our time in that state when we were stationed in Cheyenne, Wyoming! Since they live out of town and I had plans to be in NYC visiting family when they were here, we had just a tiny window to make this session happen, and luckily the February weather cooperated!

K made rock climbing in heels look incredibly easy! I loved getting to know them and hear how they crossed paths before they officially met. We were so lucky that the hikers all stayed out of our way and let them look like they were the only ones there on a busy afternoon.

What I loved about their Patapsco Park engagement session: the variety of shots I could get! Rocks, trees, water, and a bridge all made for interesting variety in their gallery. Like I do with every engagement session, I coached them through the variety of poses and prompts I use on a wedding day. I love doing this so I can get a feel for how couples interact with each other, I get a sense of their height, and I can figure out what I and they like so we make the most of the limited portrait time we get on a wedding day.

K+B get married TOMORROW at Springfield Manor in Distillery in Thurmont, Maryland. Even though it’s a hike form Calvert County, it’s one of my favorite wedding venues! I still have 2024 openings … my late August and September are booked, but if you are looking for a photographer for a different time in 2024, I may have availability depending on the date. Check out my IG feed this week for some sneak peeks of their wedding day! Praying weather shifts and we get some moments of dry weather for this incredibly organized and sweet couple!

Meet Teresa


Hi. I’m Teresa. While photography is a part-time job for me, documenting your stories doesn’t ever get treated like it’s not important. My full-time gig is teaching high school English, journalism, and photography at an all-boys’ school in Washington, DC. Journalism is my favorite subject to teach because it is as much about writing as it is about the art of observing the world, and I became a photographer because of my experiences in photojournalism.

You’ll see in galleries with my families, children, newborns, or weddings, my style definitely is more about documenting connection and trying to create real moments. I love a good portrait, but my heart is happiest when I get real smiles from people loving on and playing with each other.
