{CHELSEA + RYAN} waterfront couples session in Baltimore, MD.


Y’ALL…I’M STILL IN AWE OVER THIS DAY.

Chelsea and Ryan started dating one year ago. on their first date, Chelsea didn’t even know that they were on a date necessarily. what she thought was an innocent lunch to talk about their shared experiences living and serving in Cape Town, South Africa. but…in her words: “as soon as I saw him and the way he looked at me, the way he stood up and hugged me tightly as if we had known each other for years, i figured out that i had essentially been tricked into a date”. turns out that since the moment they met a year prior, Ryan had begun to pray on a daily basis for God to prepare him for someone like her.

WHEW…THAT LAST SENTENCE GOT ME A LITTLE MISTY-EYED.

*sniffles*

so, yeah…they’re super adorable and i’m still not over it. that said, the only place fitting for this couples session was the same neighborhood that their “first” date happened. we spent this windy Sunday exploring the beautiful Locust Point neighborhood in Baltimore, MD. from vintage buildings to colorful walls around the city, this day was magical.

THESE PEOPLE. THIS CITY. THIS DAY.

and when i say that spending time with these two restored my love for Baltimore, I’M. NOT. KIDDING. i’m already counting down the days until i can revisit this neighborhood and capture more intimate moments here <3
