Ashley & Josh: Engaged! | Baltimore Portrait Photographer

Ashley and Josh have to wait a year until their wedding, but I got them out for their engagement photos early by selling my suggestion to shoot at the Howard County Fair last week.  Josh is actually my cousin, but this was my first time meeting him. I can’t remember how exactly we’re related, but I know it’s on my Dad’s side at least.  Thanks goes to Josh’s sister, Becky, for the referral! Becky and I went to the Savannah College of Art & Design together for a couple years.

Anyway, I had them meet me at a nearby farm so that we could do some non-fair photos first. I loved this location and had a great time getting to know these two better.  Josh is a firefighter and Ashley is a pediatric RN, so they are both great people in my book.Maryland Engagement PhotographerHoward County Farm Heritage MuseumThe remains of this old building are what initially drew me to this spot while location scouting.Maryland Farm Engagement PhotosFun and so cute!Maryland Scenic Portrait PhotographerThen, it was fair time!  This is one of my favorites from the fair, and it’s also one of the first I shot. My photo geek side came out as I played with off-camera lighting.  It’s such a different look than direct flash and I am becoming addicted.Howard County Fair Engagement PhotosCatching a good shot on the carousel is tough, but I like this one….the moment before a kiss!Howard County Fair Carousel PhotographerTeacups!  This is a kiddie ride, but they smooshed in for a quick shot.  These two are motorcycle enthusiasts, so I doubt the ride would have given them much of a thrill anyway.Howard County Fair TeacupsI didn’t notice if Josh actually won this game or not, but the lady gave them a nice pink stuffed animal.  An engagement gift, perhaps?Maryland Fair Dart Game PhotoI used a long exposure and rested my camera on a railing to get a shot of the crowds moving around them.  You can see the top of a little girl’s head and a watch toward the bottom, but the rest of the people turned out ghostly.  I like it!Carnival Engagement PhotosI’m so looking forward to their wedding at the BMI next year!
