Ashley & Jamie’s Iconic Baltimore engagement session

The Baltimore engagement session of Ashley and Jamie was nothing short of iconic. From the vibrant cityscape to the beautiful couple, this session was a perfect example of how to capture your love story in style. If you’re looking for inspiration for your own engagement shoot, then you’ve come to the right place. Let’s explore what made Ashley & Jamie’s session so special.

The Location

The backdrop of any engagement session is important, and Ashley & Jamie nailed it with their location of choice – Baltimore, Maryland. The fells point neighborhood is known for its colorful harbor skyline to its historic charm and cobblestone streets. This neighborhood is one of the most popular places to visit when in the city because of  it’s hip pubs and taverns, many bars with live music everywhere. It’s also a popular spot for engagement photos because of the water views and charming elements that make up the city such as the original cobblestone streets. Baltimore offers the perfect mix chic city vibes and timeless views. The location and the outfit is what made Ashley & Jamie’s photos stand out. But if Baltimore isn’t your style, don’t worry! You can still create an iconic engagement session no matter where you are. Whether you choose a nearby park full of greenery or even a beach at sunset, make sure to pick a location that reflects who you are as a couple.

The Outfits

When it comes to taking pictures, what you wear is just as important as where you go. For their engagement shoot, Ashley and Jamie chose a statement outfit that perfectly complemented each other without being too matchy-matchy. Her rust slip dress is such a chic look and brought out his blue toned shirt and dress pants in all the right ways. Together they achieved a timeless aesthetic that will never go out of style – something future couples should keep in mind when selecting outfits for their own engagement photos! Another great tip is to wear either one standout outfit or bring two different looks. Bringing different outfits to your shoot helps to diversify your final gallery and helps tell a story as you move through the session.

The Couple

Of course, none of these elements would be complete without the happy couple themselves! Ashley & Jamie radiated joy and love throughout their entire shoot – each picture was filled with genuine smiles and laughter that captured the essence of their relationship perfectly. After the pair strolled down the historic streets of fells point they ended the session with a drink at the Broadway street market. This iconic Baltimore engagement session provided some amazing memories (and stunning photographs) that truly celebrated their connection with one another! I am so excited for their upcoming wedding at The Engineer’s Club of Baltimore, Maryland which is Located in the Mount Vernon neighborhood of Baltimore sits the historic and prestigious Garrett-Jacobs Mansion – home of The Engineering Society of Baltimore, the city’s oldest private social club.

At the end of day, creating an iconic engagement session like Ashley & Jamie’s is all about finding what works best for you as a couple—from selecting a unique location down to picking stylish outfits—and letting your personalities shine through! With these tips in mind along with some added creativity on your part, we have no doubt that your own engagement shoot will be just as gorgeous as theirs! Here’s wishing all future couples lots of luck on capturing your love stories in style!
